Peter’s Booty Haul – Glitches & Issues

With the arrival of Peter’s Booty Haul TinyCo surprised us with a new event area right bang in the middle of our ocean. It looks great but there’s been some issues and glitches, so I wanted to bring you a post where you can share any issues, it’s never nice to have a problem in our games but sometimes knowing others are in the same boat is a little reassuring so please share any glitches or issues here, that way Bunny, TinyCo and fellow addicts can grab any information they need from one place.

The main issues we’re seeing so far are….

Lois wicked witch

Android users unable to update to 1.28.0 – as per Bunny TinyCo are working on this so hopefully see a fix quickly. Getting conflicting information on whether Android players should have the update available now. 

Shipwreck Point (clam dropping premium item) timer is resetting to 24hrs as soon as we reload our games or timer reaches 23hrs – this has been reported to TinyCo, awaiting a response. 2/9 This is showing as fixed in my game and the payout time extended until October 3rd, if you bought this item you should see the game in game pop up below.

On the Water Questline – some players are having issues completing the place 3 tropical fish task. The solution is the fish can only be placed in certain parts of the ocean, some parts are locked as future event content will show there. So if they won’t place, simply move to another part of the water.

Weird loading screen – Some of us are getting the coloured screen with the black line in the centre instead of the usual splashscreen. It’s been reported but since it doesn’t appear to be causing any game issues I’m sure fixing it will be low in TinyCo’s priorities just now.

“Can not save building in bad position” pops up and my game reloads – a number of players are still having this issue and the 1.28.0 update hasn’t resolved it. We are trying find out more on a fix for those affected. 9/2 As per TinyCo “building” error message should be fixed today – players now reporting fix has hit and they are getting back in their games.

UPDATE 9/3 BUNNY: PER TINYCO..

I have an update regarding the bad position error. For players who are currently affected, I will be manually fixing their games. However, to fix their games, I will need to completely remove the affected buildings. So, if players from Family Guy Addicts are experiencing this issue, please have them tap on the Help button when the crash occurs and submit an email with the crash log.

 

Joker and Lex Luthor no longer showing as dropping cursed treasure. 9/2  Joker and Lex Luthor showing a drop of cursed treasure on their 24 hour task was a “happy glitch” for those that had it, but was never intended nor will it be in players games as an option for the Event.

Thats what we are seeing reported just now, any others send us a comment, and as much as I know it’s frustrating, please remember you’re not alone many players are affected. And if you want to vent this isn’t the post for it, please use the most recent What the Deuce if you want to get something off your chest.

  1. I had Daggermouth doing the quest “Catch the News” (Money-Making Machine Pt. 2) I updated the game since the event ended and now I can’t get Daggermouth nor can I finish the quest. I completed the Bonnie portion but when I try to finish the Daggermouth part, it takes me to the blocked off section of the water where Daggermouth should be but it is not there anymore. I am stuck in a glitch….

    • Few players have Daggermouth missing, could you please contact TinyCo from your game so they can look at the games impacted by this.

  2. My juggling monkey won’t juggle 😦 He just stands there. Also, does anyone know how to open up the House of Booty whenever you want? The only way I have been able to is by viewing an item that has a corresponding building in the House. I have none of those atm so I can’t find a way to open it.

  3. I have not been able to play since the september 1st update.. am getting error,
    Empty id in T* Bpc::ConfigObjectFactory::newobjectForld(const string&) Const [with T = Bpc::FGPlaceable; std::string = std::basic_string]
    I have emailed TinyCo several times and have yet to hear if they are fixing this error or not, and am extremely disappointed in the way that they handle things. I feel that they should do beta testing release, before final release of the game… If anyone has any insight into this error, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank You!

  4. I just noticed that buildings I still have out from the superheroes event only give coins and not experience points. I definitely see this in Poison Ivy’s shop, the Teen Titans building, and the Eccentric Billionaire’s Mansion (the one that gave out a lot of plastic rings during the event). Haven’t checked ones in storage. Is this planned or a glitch? I’m maxed out in XP so I can’t tell if there are invisible experience points being added. All my other buildings are still shooting out XP.

    • My buildings are the same, only paying out game currency not XP, there is a similar issue with the dinosaurs not dropping XP to level them up. TinyCo haven’t said anything but I will add this to the list of questions I’m going pass to Bunny when she’s back.

  5. I am having problems with the gunboat battles. Im fortunate enough that I have a few thousand clams I can use to speed up the game, but none of my gunboat battles are registering at all. Ive had quite a few now. My gunboat is at level 40 (the highest it will go) and even if I rush the battle, it still doesnt register. I do get the payout of limes and salt at the end of every battle though. Has anyone else experienced this? I have a task that involves having 5 battles and Ive already rushed 2 but they have not shown up as completed and I still have 5 left to do. If I dont do all 5 in time, the task will go incomplete and I cant collect the bonus items and the grand prize. This will really annoy me as I spend a fortune on clams just so I can collect everything.

    • My attacks are registering fine, but had few comments this morning saying they are having a problem with attacks registering. I can only suggest using your in game support to notify TinyCo. But also ask you maybe reply to this with following details then TinyCo can maybe see if there is a pattern in the games having issue.

      Are you playing on Android or IOS?

  6. Well, it seems I ‘finally’ found a website that has information regarding the current problems I’m having with this game. I had gone through ‘every’ possible issue, from whether it was problems with my phone and not enough RAM/Data availability, and/or that it was issues with Sprint. So, I uninstalled the game, downloaded two ‘new’ games from the Sprint store, and they played perfectly fine. I was all but ready to give up on this game, when I found this site. I don’t really care all that much on whether I miss out on the current event, but that I’m not losing/wasting all of the money I invested while playing ‘Family Guy: The Quest For Stuff’.
    If I may make a few suggestions and/or a request- ‘Please’ eliminate the item status from the game. The status of ‘Always, Common, Uncommon, Rare & Extra Rare’ is something that makes me want to avoid, when having my characters go after an item, especially if the time placed in a character’s task for that item, comes up empty due to it being ‘rare’. It’s wasted time, which ‘could’ have been used for the character to go for an item that I can actually get. Also, give an option to use ‘both’ coins and clams when purchasing items. Maybe if the item (currently purchased only with ‘clams’) costs 100 clams, the option is set to spend ‘1000 coins’. Either way, the coins would be used a lot more, as I currently stand at seven figures. Just a suggestion to consider.

    Thank you. I look forward to any reply, and look forward to returning to playing the game.

    • Hi Markus, thanks for your thoughts, we’re not TinyCo but always like hear players thoughts. And TinyCo do read the blog so will see them too.

    • I find the rare, uncommon, common etc. status info very useful when planning during an event. When I see a rare item needed to unlock a character that will be dropped from a building, I know to prioritize getting that building ASAP to start dropping since there might be a day or more between drops. When I have a choice of item-producing tasks for a character, I can decide how to choose the tasks from the potential drop rate. I might want to work on the rare first, for example, or mix them. More information is always good for me.

      If an item isn’t dropping at the expected rate, you need to report it in-game. You should be able to get all the items to drop eventually if you have allowed enough time. When unlocking characters when time is short or there’s a timer, pay attention to the cost of a needed item in clams or the cost of bypassing a task you may not be ready to do (because it requires a character you don’t have yet). This will tell you if you can still afford to buy the character if you are missing some of the items. Often I see I can get the character with well under 100 clams if needed, which is nice to know if I really want it. This only works with characters, costumes to be unlocked for existing characters in Al’s work differently although sometimes the clam cost for the costume comes down to something reasonable.

      • Fantastic advice – thanks. I tend to think unless there is a game wide issues drops drop as I expect for their status, apart from uncommon, I just can’t work out what to expect from it, apart from engaging my patience mode 😀

  7. Shipwreck Point definitely still not working for me despite TinyCo claiming to have fixed it and no longer replying to messages about it (initial response was just copy & paste standard answer anyway). I had to wait more than 24 hours to collect my clams yesterday and just checked the timer today – it was showing 23:58 so had reset yet again!

          No I mean cos as I mentioned in the rundown the vacuum will also collect your clams. When you go into your game around when it needs collecting, either a) check your clam total before and after using the vacuum, or b) manually collect from shipwreck point before using the vacuum. This way you can confirm if it is working correctly.

  14. I just got clam generating Shipwreck Point yesterday and so far so good. Except I had a brief moment of panic when I couldn’t find it when I woke up today! I had forgotten it was in the water and not on dry land, whew. It’s hard to distinguish from all the rest of the event stuff in the water, so I surrounded it with bright green tropical fish and then placed a string of the fish leading to it from shore like a path in the water… That should help me when I’m half-awake looking for it.

    I would say this was a senior moment, except I was like this as a teenager.

      • The issue is that once you upgrade on one device, you can’t play the previous version on an another device.

        And Amazon is ALWAYS slow on releasing the upgrades.

        If you want to keep playing on kindle then you can’t start the event on another device.

        One guns the best approach is to play on droid or iPod so I can start the event, and keep checking Amazon store to see if they FINALLY got it.

        FYI, in my experience, getting locked out is only an issue with an upgrade ending in .0

    When the DC event ended, I started getting a message which reads “The event has ended. Please reload your game to return to life as a civilian” (referring to the DC event), which immediately pops up as soon as I enter the game. When I press the “GO” button for this message, the message “Can not save building in bad position” pops up and my game reloads. This is a loop, both messages continually pop up (first the “reload your game” and then the “building in bad position”) and I am unable to click on anything else.

            One thing I noticed in my game is that the Batman Brian statue and Robin Stewie statue (which I had placed in game) are now in my inventory / storage. These were the last two things I had been able to obtain and place before the error “Can not save building in bad position” started occuring. I am now wondering if these decorations have something to do with that error? I really like these decorations and wanted them in my game but am now very hesitant to place them back in the game. If they are a part / or what was causing the error though, would TinyCo have fixed them now – or why not delete them from our games to stop the error from reoccurring? 🤔
