1) I'm still experiencing the same graphics issues that were reported in this thread (since late July/early August)

https://forums.ea.com/en/the-simpsons-tapped-out/discussion/224867/items-present-but-not-displaying

2) That graphics glitch is also affecting the Premium Swamp that I purchased. I cannot see it, but I can select it in the maintenance mode. :neutral:

3) When I use the Office of Unemployment Job Manager to send my characters on 1 hour tasks, it has given me an arrow <--- surrounded by a black outline line for a few characters (Disco Stu, Helen Lovejoy and another one that I can't remember) when I click on their character icon (top left). If I reboot the game, then click on their character icon, the task list for them pops up just fine.

The graphics issue is getting a bit annoying. Not a show stopper, but annoying all the less.

  • Man, I've got so many bugs from this update...
    - When I sent people to do tasks from the task building, some of them don't get any task bc they were transformed into ghosts or whatever that thing is. The problem is that if that happens, the game gets bugged and I can't tap on anything. Only solution was to close the game.
    - Mrs. Dracula does nothing when I tap on her.
    - Visiting neighbors crashes the games over and over. Can't visit more than two in a row before crashing. And there's no lag or anything, it just crashes.
    - After checking the ! icon when in a neighbors town to see how many npcs I had left that would drop event currency, it showed a weird message instead and after that I couldn't tap on anything. Again, only solution was to close the game.
    - At the begining of the event, game was lagging like crazy (really, even worst than the KL update), but it got better after and now seems to be fine. Hope it stays that way.
  • I can't seem to move across town by swiping my iPads. Everything I touch opens a dialog window, characters, buildings etc. so I can get from one side of the town to the other. Is anyone else seeing this?
  • Cannot scroll after tapping on buildings until all the money and xp have been collected from that small cluster.
  • When I visit friends it freezes up and kicks me off
  • Game lags and blocks when collecting from buildings. Lost all options to purchase within the game now. I had the mystery boxes available and they are gone now.
    All this happened right after doing the task for the friends town and then connecting with Facebook.
  • Cannot scroll after tapping on buildings until all the money and xp have been collected from that small cluster. Same for me this needs to be fixed!

    Same here. i contacted support and they said that we have to restore our towns to the first log in of the day which means we lose all progress of the event. this is the second issue within 3 days and they said to do the same thing for both. it looks like the developers are just too lazy to fix it themselves. i refuse to lose all my event process. if they don't want to do another update to fix these problems, i don't think i will bother with the game anymore. it is just ridiculous.

    Same problem here. No scrolling after tapping for money and XP. Huge waste of time and extremely boring those waits.
  • I'm having the same tapping and scrolling lag/freeze issue.
  • I'm having the same tap-freeze problem. It happens when I'm collecting money and also when I send everyone to jobs. I have to wait until every character starts their job before I can navigate the town again.

  • Answers HQ Hero HELP THREADS
  • Just adding my experience to the thread. Buggiest update since I began playing about five years ago. Game freezes at random. Crashes when I visit friend’s towns. Employment office task manager misses about a third of my residents (had some luck reissuing tasks but it’s gotten worse). Oddly, it also displays the “Minions are gone” banner while there are obviously a bunch of ‘tappable’ minions left. I’ve no doubt it’ll all get patched but really an incredible amount of glitches for one update.
  • Game is crashing when I tap minions in friends towns. Only started happening after I bought the license for 90 donuts!!!
  • support says that they are working on fixing the issues. but obviously will take a bit of time.

    Same here. EA should update the cash/XP collecting system after tasks are completed. For long-time players with tons of houses and characters, tapping is tedious enough. Now with these lags from the update bug, the game is virtually unplayable.
  • Same issues as listed above. Also, all THOH premium purchase options are gone. Darn, EA, I was about to buy more donuts!
  • The same issues are happing to me, the whole THOH store is gone.

    Same issues on scroll lock when collecting jobs, buildings, or minions; this is by far the most frustrating to me. Also, had a couple of friends where the minions weren’t tappable - I just skipped them. Only screen lock I got was when digging for artifacts (image) - uncovered one and the screen locked like it wanted me to keep digging. Exited out, and when I came back it reset without my pickaxes, or the artifact and fangs it should have awarded. Based on other issues here, it seems like they didn’t bother to actually test anything before publishing the event.
