All are having the reported issue with varying difficulties.
The problem is very similar in behavior to overloaded memory issues. In fact, the more content on the screen the worse it gets. i.e. more characters moving around, more buildings needed checked the more apparent the problem. So, it seems to be worse for those on more advanced levels based upon what I have gathered from the various posts and forums.
There is something major wrong with caracter animation scripts in this update.
I have half my town empty ground or packed with blue houses.
Scrolling, tapping and collecting works perfect in these aereas, in fact in all areas without caracters.
Also works fine as long as caracters are doing indoor tasks and are not visable.
As soon as a caracter is on screen it starts to lag, and the more there are the slower it gets.
Lag lag then crash...
IPAD 4 - iOS 7.1.1
UPDATE - 4.8.1
My game VERY SLOW after update closing of easter.
not a happy bunny, in fact I am sick of bunnies :thumbdown:
Tried to fidle around to see if things changed, and whaddya know... when I put O'Flannagans in storage the lagging was reduced by at least 90%, and I can slide around at acceptable speed.
May be different objects for other users though, but I notised that neighbour towns differ greatly.
Those with less event buildings works better, those with the most crash the game when trying to visit.
Realize it wont help those who cant log in at all, but worth a try for those who get in but struggle.
