Now Homer?

Prev1
Nope -- I've had the exact same problem getting Homer to begin his task to break into the Cool Brown House. Every time I tap him, the game crashes. Sucks, doesn't it? I'm hopeful it'll get fixed sometime this week. At least we're not the only ones.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one. Well let see what would happen during the week.

    I have been experiencing something similar. Since the new update Homer tends to crash my game as soon as I touch him.
    This has worked for me, though only sometimes. To completely exit the game by double tapping the home button and deleting the short cut from the multitasking menu, and then start the game again.

    The "Homer" problem seems to predate the latest update. A number of users have previously noted the tendency for the game to crash when he is tapped. (Maybe the size of his task menu compared to that of the other characters?) I've found that I can reduce this crash probability by synchronizing my game instead of completely exiting the app.

    I could try that Krustybrand and see if this too helps.

    I haven't been able to use normal outfit Homer in weeks either. I was finally able to switch his outfit to Myan Homer to at least get some tasks out of him. But, I can't get him to switch back to normal Homer in order to do the quest for breaking into Cool Brown House. As time has gone on other characters have also become completely useless as they crash the game the second I tap them...Lisa, Milhouse, comic book guy, Martin, and Bart. Not to mention that it is a challenge to keep the game from crashing every minute or so. EA knows of my issues because I have placed a service report (a month ago) and they should be having a tech specialist contact me in a couple of weeks! The initial tech person was not able to give any helpful advice...no surprise there! The real problem is I'm addicted to this game..:)

    I also have Lisa, Martin, Milhouse, Bart, Homer, and Comic Book Guy crashing the app. I was able to get Homer to switch from his Mayan outfit to White Shirt by constantly shifting back and forth between Mayan/White Shirt without releasing my touch while the task menu was up. It took about 25 tries, but I finally got it to convert back to White shirt. But, after completing the Cool Tasks, he is now a crash bomb again.

    Have you got a big or very decorative town? I had these problems, tried everything, only storing decorations, trees etc stopped the crashing. I had a lot of trees as a forest, guess this slowed it down as it was too complex.

    This sucks! I worked hard to get the feeling of a real city using lots of decoration, and now I gotta tore it all up because the game can,t take it?? they need to fix this because we are just going to buy new stuff everyday with every update, nobody wants a town with only one building of each and no trees...

    There has to be another way.

    I just upgraded to IOS 6, cleared lots of space on my phone, unneeded stuff, and the gameplay seems to be easier...now is that a coincidence, I don't know...

    I am still crashing every time I tap Homer. Any ideas how to fix this? He is the key to most of the new quests.

    Well game crashing as hell. But my big concern is that I'm still stuck with Homer, cannot make him break into cool brown house, pretend to ski and eat at Krusty. Touch Homer kaboom game crash. So if I cannot complete Homer jobs no chances to complete all the Xmas quests.

    I'm also having this problem. It fixed temporarily, but now every time I click on Homer the game crashes.

    The game crashes when I click Homer but only if I have been playing a few minutes...same thing for Marge, Lisa, Bart and Comic Book Guy...but when I restarted the game, I can give them task if I tapped them right away.

    This is a big problem, for us but especially for EA. I was about to buy more donuts 2 weeks ago when it all started but haven't and I refuse to give them any more of my money if they don,t fix this. If the game crashes because their is to much info on the screen, and I have to remove all my decorations in order to make it work, it not as fun/satisfying anymore and I will eventually stop playing.

    Ea, fix this.
