Witch Marge Incapable of Speeding Corn?

For me it only works, when I speed up the 8h one (omg, I can't believe I forgot what it is called). I experience the same problems, when growing moonshine and triffides. When I start the task, it takes off 4h, but when she finishes it the 4h are added back to the clock.

    My experience is the same with moonshine. The speed up crops effect does not seem to be additive.

    It only works once, then it likes to put the time back. I can keep using Marge, but ultimately, it only wants to shave off 4 hours off the total time.

    I've had to regrow moonshine a few times and it always ends up taking 20 hours. Yesterday it reverted back to 24 hours despite me having used Marge 3 times throughout the day. It was finally about to spawn after 20h when it again added another 4h for no reason. I dropped a hell naw, stored Moes to end her 12h task, brought her back, and restarted her speed crops task. Then the moonshine finished immediately.

    Also, I've found that the crop likes to wilt 24h after its original intended spawn time rather than its accelerated spawn time. It's like the original grow time is hard-coded into it.

    It works when the crop it's on it's final hours. Witch marge then will reduce the time by 50%

    I'm growing corn as well. I've been playing with it a little bit and what's worked so far is putting her for 4 hours. Send her on a short task then bring her back to corn

    Yeah right. They can't even fix the bugs, that don't allow people to access their towns. I think those bugs have a higher priority. If I send EA a ticket about this, the earliest time I can hope for them to fix this, is next halloween, when they start reselling Witch Marge again.

    I thought it was just me. I'll have to try sending her off to do something else for a bit. What was I thinking planting corn? Oh I know. I wasn't!

    Thank you. That just proves I wasn't thinking. I completely forgot I can do that.

    This is the same thing I'm experiencing. I wonder if it recently changed with any of the updates...?

    Do you check in between giving her the task if the crop actually decreases? Or is it just decreasing and then going back to normal and maybe your not noticing? Double check and let me know if it still works and if so I guess EA might hear from me...





    But reading this it looks like it works for some people and not others? Maybe platform issues?

    Next time before you put her on task see how much time left, then wait till she starts the task and see how much time and then leave your town and come back and see how much time left and see if it changes.

    I can confirm that she only works once on the corn. I planted corn in my regular town and my feeder town to test this. So far my regular town is only 4 hours ahead of the feeder town despite using Witch Marge 8 times. It really sucks because I was hoping to get corn in 45 days. Perhaps this is a glitch that will get fixed.

    Thanks for confirming! I kind of had a feeling that's how it was but it wasn't always like that, so I hope they fix the problem soon. I was hoping to get my corn in 45 days too :roll:

    Ahh geez, it only works once on corn? I guess I hadn't been checking Anf just assumed it worked every time. I'm still waiting the 90 :)
