Guess that’s it

Every time I open my Springfield app, it says that I need to make the ~1060 mb ish download. Any body else who has that problem?

Jesus I am sick of EA.

  • Yep you need that as extra mb. All you have to do is make sure you’ve got that free and proceed with it.
  • Generally caused by lack of storage space on the device and the auto clean up system deleting files considered temporary.
  • This is a frequently reported problem. Depending on your device you may need to have up to 5GB free storage to avoid this problem.
    Im guessing you have an older device based on the 1060mb download, so you may get away with freeing up as little as 2GB storage.

    Been a ton of threads on this. It's not EA its your device. Depending on the device you may need as much as 7 gigs free to kerp the game going. Apple devices seem to suffer the most.
    I install and clear temp files and see what you have. You may need to move pics or music to make enough room, or uninstall unused apps.
    Video apps like Netflix can be using large amounts of storage in cache.

  • What you guys are dating definetily makes sense. I’m gonna give it a try and make some more storage room. Thanks a lot!
  • I have 40GB free storage and that download thing keeps appearing here every 1-2 weeks.
  • Hmmmm... More stuff to add to my troubleshooting list. I didn't know about the off loading thing.

    You mean you have 40GB free and it keeps happening to you? Could be your device is telling you there's more free space than there is?
  • Nope, it's still happening. And somehow the download size went from 1100MB to 1800MB.
  • I've experienced that it's not a lack of storage, it's a lack of CACHE that prevents a download. I clear the cache and it comes through ok. The storage was available the whole time.

    ??????????????????
    @4junk3000 Where do you think the browser cache is stored? It's in storage! When you browse web pages the cache fills up and pushes other things out of storage. So your OS says, "Oh, here's a great big huge bunch of files that aren't being used... I'll delete those and put the web cache here instead."
    And some of us don't use the browser on our phones or tablets, so that's not the issue.
    And my blood sugar is low this morning because the game keeps kicking me out so I can't finish up and eat the rest of my breakfast!

    I'll try to be clearer with that I've experienced.

    In this pic, the dark blue is the Cache. Deleting items from the apps, pics, etc has not made a difference, when the downloader is rejecting the download because the allotment for the cache is full.

    Emptying the cache happens by tapping it in this list. This always helps me when something won't DL

    The cache is a designated value. It adjusts based on need. But if the download is larger than the space available within the value designated at that time, it will fail.

  • Been kicking me out too. Hang in there. Hopefully it will stop when winter event starts

    I have never seen that. I always thought that when people said to "clear the cache" they meant the browser cache.
    I guess I'm the turkey today...

    (stuff about cache)
    None of that seems right to me. More likely your cache is corrupted and clearing it forces a good copy to be downloaded.
