Prev1
I agree! Going to friends towns is very slow. One friend I couldn't get to cause game keeps crashing.

    Unplayable is right. My game crashes on startup every time.

    A professional company would have pulled this update as soon as they heard the reports of problems. EA goes ahead and forces this down the players throats. Really???

    How long ago was you forced into updating? I'm still able to log in to both my towns without updating.

    Yep, same here cant even get past the log in page on any of my devices. The good news is, is that it gave extra time in the morning to do other stuff as I am usually tapping first thing when I get up. My partner is very happy for the crash. She actually gets a conversation out of me now.... I am sensing a conspiracy by all partners/spouses etc of the world..... :evil:

    Had the app freeze up or close itself 9 times during today's friend run.

    2 of me friend's towns I cannot get into for love nor money - freezes up every time I try to enter.

    I wonder if they have changed something (max number of objects) or something from the easter event is now causing problems now the event has been taken off.

    Either way it's pretty poor and makes ya wonder how much testing is done before things are released.

    C'mon EA, get your act together

    I agree. Unplayable now and I am on a brand new iPad mini retina. And there is not a lot of places to go but down from that device. So it's now my device. It used to run pretty smooth.

    I got the forced update about ten minutes before my first post. I had just visited some neighbor's to collect eggs so I could spin a couple of boxes. Logged out and back in maybe 10 min later when it updated.

    Hope you don't get the update virus anytime soon.

    No forced update for me. Still collecting eggs in the hopes (small as they may be...) of getting a premium.

    They'll fix it. Just gotta do 24hr tasks and not play as much until it happens.

    I asked our (adult) offspring to buy one of those for their Dad for Father's Day. I (oops. I mean HE) would get a lot of use out of it. :)

    Oh, and welcome to the forum!

    Yeah this is a JOKE!! I was excited to finally be done with the "Easter" Update but now I'm just pissed!! I play on Kindle Fire HD whatever the heck it is, and my town is SOOOO Lagged its unplayable!! Does EA know about this junk, or is there a way to notify them? Otherwise I guess I've wasted a lot of time for a game that I'm no longer going to play!

    They know about it but whether or not they'll fix it is another question. Their help forum is being flood with reports.

    Here is one of many fast growing threads there: [url] http://answers.ea.com//t5/The-Simpsons-Tapped-Out/New-Update-With-Animation-Lag-EA-said-post-here/m-p/2790328#M74842[/url]

    That's exactly what I plan to do tonight. I could use a break from playing 17 times a day anyway.

    The update is forced now? :evil: Crap. I haven't played in like 8 hours.

    EDIT: Just logged in. It didn't force me to update. I can still tap bunnies.

    Maybe??.....Shot myself in the foot??

    I didn't think so since I had to uninstall/reinstall to get the Easter event to start. Any idea on where to check the setting on a Kindle?
