Please help, Kodos is stuck

I FINALLY got my game to load and now Kodos is stuck in the Simpsons house. He was in the house for a task which has long since completed but when I click on it NOTHING happens. He won’t release from the task and come out. I’ve tried deleting the app and reinstalling (which caused its own set of issues) but nothing has worked. I can’t store the Simpson’s house to let him out that way. Annnnnd I can’t start the Halloween event without him. Ughhhh. ANY ideas??? Any at all lol???

  • If you have his ship, try storing that..
  • I did but he’s still stuck. It’s the crashed one, right?
  • what happens if you try sending kang on their dual? can't send?
    no the ship was for when they were first released. now they're separate from them so they're not associated anymore

  • Let me see if I can send him with Kang. I doubt it will let me because Kodos is locked away but good lol...but I’ll try!
  • Nope, it won’t let me. It’s telling me that task is locked. Sighhh.
    I have a request for help in with EA. Maybe they’ll help me. I don’t know what else to do.
  • Truly sorry you've been having to deal with these glitches. @MamaLuck
    I know you don't want to hear this, but it seems to me that your only option is to contact EA directly (use their phone option if at all possible). Best of luck & please keep us updated!
    Lately It Occurs To Me... What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been.
  • Thank you (all of you!) for the replies. I did just send a message to EA so I’m hoping they can fix it. I’ve had such strange glitches with my game, it almost seems like a virus hit it, but I don’t even know that is possible lol. Anyway thanks to all who replied here. I appreciate it!!
  • I had the exact same problem today! I messaged EA Twitter support and they were able to sign into my town and free him for me!

    Lately It Occurs To Me... What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been.
  • Same thing happened to someone I know, what worked for them was logging in to a different device wait for kodos to fly across the screen then they will be walking around the town (got to find) and then click on tick and kodos is free. May take a few minutes for them to appear, worth a try tho if EA support aren't so nice.
  • From the bugs and issues thread:
    Possible solutions to free fairy Kodos from her task at the Simpson’s house:
    From Tstotopix, October 2015:
    Today EA brought to us Fairy Kodos at the start of Act 2 as a new premium skin but something went wrong in the coding and a glitch may occur where her Flirt with Human Males doesn’t autocomplete. If Kodos’ task doesn’t autocomplete, move away from the Simpson House for a few seconds, come back, she’ll have the thumbs up icon on top of her. Another thing to try is going to Krustyland or friend towns’ screen and back to sync the game.
    Post on EA answers, October 2015:
    If Kodos is floating across your screen, keep playing until she's gone all the way across and disappeared and then a little while after that she should just be wandering around with a thumbs up above her head!
    Post on tstoaddicts, October 2015:
    Fairy Kodos is Stuck on the Flirt Task, How Do I Fix This? Readers have advised that it has to do with the Facade on the Simpson’s House. If it’s set to Everscream Terrors you can’t clear it. So what you’ll need to do is tap on Everscream Terros and chance the Facade back to the Simpson’s House. That should allow you to clear the task…

    Sending adults to the simpsons house also fixed it for me. Had to do that and than close the game and reopen it.

    Finally managed to resolve the issue. I logged on using my iPad - encountered the same issue, but followed the advice to let fairy Kodos fly to the other side of the screen and she then appeared with the thumbs up a few seconds later. This did not work on my iPhone - it was only by trying on a different device that I managed it.

    I’ve played this on a 6s, 7 and now an 8. All up to date iOS. I’ll try from my iPad. Holy (insert a lot of curse words excitedly) the iPad released her! It was really weird tho, as soon as the board opened she flew across the screen super fast then bam she appeared in front of the house.

  • THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE INFO AND SUGGESTIONS!!!! You are all soooo helpful and supportive. I can’t log in to the game until after work but I will definitely try everything suggested here!! Thank you!!
    Side note: I heard from EA and they said I should “simply” store the Simpson’s house and log out. Way to not even know anything about your own game or how it works. They really are frustrating.
  • I’m having the same problem with Fairy Kodos. She appeared unexpectedly but just as quickly disappeared. I tried storing the Simpson’s house but the game wouldn’t let me. 🙄

    Have you tried all the possible solutions posted above by Muhsterino?

    If you have a friend you can borrow a device that is not the same OS as your own, download and log in to your town on that device. Wait for a few minutes while Fairy Kodos crosses the screen. Then the thumb should appear. release her. then sync by going to the friend screen. Then go back to your own device, She should stay free.

    (yes yes you shouldn't have to do that, but it a a valid workaround)

    Alternatively, contact EA help on Twitter and explain the problem. They should be able to just get Fairy Kodos out.

    I had this problem once and fixed with advice form the forum, I forget what I did though, but it can be done.

  • John, I’m sure you just “nuked”.
  • @EllieGuseman THANK YOU! I ended up loading the game on my iPad and Kodos behaved exactly as stated. She flew across the screen then showed up next to the Simpson house with the thumbs up! Yay! 🙋🏼‍♀️
