    I'm kind of glad people took advantage of the glitch. I wish I knew about it because I definitely would have. I started playing the game when it was first released and got pretty far in it. I bought tons of donuts (at least $100), had to deal with the town disappearing closing and opening the app 20 times before it would come back but roads would be missing, etc. while the app was removed from the App Store. Them when they "fixed" it and everybody was supposed to be able to use their town again or it would be reset but you would be back to the same level with all the donuts you had purchased... I was back to level 1 with none of my donuts. EA wouldn't even respond to me (this was when the Treehouse update came out because I really wanted to get the treehouse stuff) and apple said it was too late for them to refund me. So I just started over and cranked my way through it. Finally about a month ago I got an email from EA asking what level I was at and how many donuts I had. I told them not to reset my game because I was already way beyond what I was at when my game got reset and that I had probably over 400 donuts. They wrote back and basically said "great, we'll close out your ticket then." They didn't give me any of those donuts back. So screw EA. take advantage of them all you want.

    Yes it still works, you can do it every 6 hours if you log out or visit neighbors then you have to wait another 6hours to get the glitch to work again. So when you are logged out of it, you go back to regular play as far as the donuts go, however if you bought a ton of money with your negative count of donuts your money and anything you did while using the glitch is still working and money still there, donuts are not. I spent a bunch of money on donuts before this glitch so I am happy to take advantage of it.

    Anyone wanting to know how to use the glitch, pm and I would be glad to let you know. Before you do, know that you must be level 17 or above, have a Kwik e mart, the dog races and less then 3 donuts. Anyone upset with me for this, please don't mention it, I won't respond.

    So what would happen if you do this glitch but already have actually paid for donuts? Are they just gone or will they still be in your game after the glitch is done?

    What I heard was to do the glitch you have to have less than 3 doughnuts to begin with which makes your question moot. After you finish the glitch though you should have anywhere from 30 to 1,000 doughnuts... if you know what you're doing. Peeps that exit out with zero don't.

    So you can keep donuts from it now? How?

    this is the official ea forum. you shouldn't talk about the specifics of glitches to gain "free" donuts.

    seriously, how stupid how are you people?

    why not?

    whoever is moderating this forum clearly is either too slack to remove the thread or doesn't have a problem with it being discussed. Have at it.

    EA seem to be quick to let you pay them thousands or millions in revenue for this game, while at the same time completely ignoring the pleas of gamers who have spent real money to play, and cant, based on issues which are a direct cause from their shi7 programming of the game.

    Personally I think anyone who continues to pay EA money for this game with their total disregard for their customers are fools.

    The fact you can now obtain every single premium item and have unlimited cash for nothing, again due to their own crappy programming truly is perfect example of poetic justice!

    I know that EA will come here but I have a feeling as long as the scratch r's exist they cant remove this glitch. I bet they tried but in reality we here on this forum represent perhaps 10% of the players of the game so I doubt if even 3% of the 10% know about this and used it. Once that 3% has everything they will also probably level up fast and get harped and if they get harped and get out may have 900 donuts and that will be it for a while. In the mean time there are the other 90% and thanx to the golden scratch r's are all spending real money on the game.

    One last thing on this subject and I will exit the thread. I can bet you that at least 1% of the 3% of the 10% that used the glitch spent real money at one time or another.

    I won't tolerate anyone calling me an idiot it was a simple question that I honestly don't care whether its answered or not. I can't even use the glitch.

    This. EA does not give a rat's bum about you. As long as people continue to shovel dollars at them and tolerate their horrible behavior, EA will continue taking the dollars and acting horribly. They are making millions of dollars on this game every quarter. If their bottom line was remotely threatened, it would have been fixed weeks ago.

    They clearly do not care.

    Kind of in agreement, if this glitch was affecting their profit on the game then they would be fixing it VERY quickly, the fact that you have been able to use this glitch for well over a month now and the fact that we have had 2 updates in that time which have not fixed it speak volumes that EA dont really care too much about it, im sure at some point it will be fixed but clearly they are in no rush.

    Im almost sure that the only reason they know ther are problems in the game is because of this forum and i guess because of people emailing them but i dont imagine many would email them for a donut glitch that made them donuts ... that being said they do not check these forums often though...

    The people they dont want to deal with get redirected here. You lost your account? You didnt receive your donuts? Great kindly go to a forum where no1 has any power over your game and maybe they can restore what you have lost. Its a sad day for a company when players must step up and offer there services to people who get harped because EA's response time is a joke, and there problem solving is an even bigger one. But kudos to those who stepped up and helped people they should be rewarded from EA for doing something that they could not, which is actually helping people.

    That's a pretty fair assessment. The one probably wouldn't have even been discovered had they addresses the issue of people losing donuts to crashes. They didn't, and someone found a way to use it benefically.
