    Hi GM / Mods,

    My account is "webboyfreak" and email is "[email protected]"

    I play my Tapped Out on an iPod. Recently, after building Wiggum's house, the game crashed and when I tried to start it again, it kept crashing. I was able to log out of my Origin account, and when that happened, I was able to start a new game, but I don't want that. I want my old Springfield back.

    I hope someone would be able to do something about it as it has been 3 days since Tapped Out crashed.

    Thank you very much.


    Edit: I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Tapped Out once, but it still didn't work.

    I used to have the harp freeze, it is gone (thank god! It was like 10 days)

    Now it is stuck on 44479/120000 experience points level 26 . Money can still be earned just no XP!

    So now what?

    Do i have to wait for the update at the end of February?

    Firstly: Posting here doesn't seem to help. Neither EA nor Origin seem to read it.

    Secondly: Log a support call through EA's website. This way you get a case ID number

    Thirdly: Get yourself a twitter account and start making some noise. Send tweets to @easupport (who tend to just be rude and unhelpful). More importantly send tweets to @EA
    I sent them demanding a refund and had an email reply within hours (after 1 week of no response), and the Harp issue was fixed within 2 days!

    The issue (for me at least) was something to do with my Origin Account and the game saved with it.

    I repeatedly asked them to come onto these Forums and make a post but I just get told they will look into it. Seems they didn't bother.

    I went through all three steps above and have had the issue fixed.

    I am also suffering through the "harp" bug. It has been going on for 4 days and started right after I finished construction of chemistri restaurant. I have read through all of the solutions, but none have worked for me. Is there a fix available?

    Every time I try to log on, on my phone, I get to the part where it says " you are logged on as whoever tap anywhere to continue". So I tap, it loads a bit then it stops and I just get thing dining noise. When trying to log on using other devices, it just shows the loading screen nonstop. Other people can log on and play, on the same devices but not me. I uninstalled it from my phone then reloaded it, but still the same thing. **** am I supposed to do?

    Hi, I'm kinda having the same issue. Since last Tuesday I've been trying to load the game but right after it asks me to tab and continue it keeps playing this harp music, non stop, and the 'loading doughnut' it's stuck at the same position.
    I tried closing and re opening the game. Killing the app an loading it again and even deleting it and downloading the app once again.
    Don't know what else to do. I am trying both things on my iphone and ipad.
    Any workaround? Do I just need to wait? Are we going to get any compensation?
    I'm a daily user about to complete my second bonus level, and I have 90 unused doughnuts. I don't really want to lose everything i've done.
    My user name is Germanophile, in case you need it.

    I would really appreciate any help.

    Several days now of experiencing the death harp. Thought that the latest patch would have addresses it.
