My husband had the "crash to deskop" problem, which was fixed th the update. Now he can play, but I - who have had no problems at all - are getting the Bart screen now. Not as serious, but annoying anyway.
It looks like you're new here. Sign in or register to get started.
But that was short lived, to be soon replaced by the "crash" error that flips you back to Home Screen. I tried the uninstall/reinstall, and this time it was a no-go.
So, eventually, another in-app update, and that fixed it again. A Festivus miracle!! Except that then it borked again. Another update, another short-lived fix, and now I'm back to seeing Bart's smug face AGAIN.
Meanwhile, my wife has been (mostly) playing along just fine. Needless to say, she's a fair bit ahead of me on Elf Bells, only now she's getting Bart too. Like pretty much everyone, our "B" games seem to work fine. I've heard through the grapevine that the issue only affects players >Level 45, so that could be it, if true, since most "B" games are probably below that.
Consistent with what others have noticed, when my wife could play just fine, and logged in on my wee iPod, she could still play just fine. When I was borked, logging into her fancy new iPad mini didn't help at all, so in some way or other it's clearly account specific rather than device or OS specific.
Kinda hoping for some kind of "compensatory damages" for this, and NOT some kind of across-the-board donut drop. People who've had no problems are going to be way ahead of those of us who've been hounded by them, and giving everyone a bunch of donuts would be like a referee saying "Illegal play -- give BOTH teams a free point!!" -- how does that even anything up??

So, in for now. Thinking maybe I'll just never power off. Oh, and my wife is now Barted out of her game. Oh, the humanity!
Yeah same here, before the update from half an hour ago, no problems... Now... All i see is Bart. Oh well, just hope for improvement in a short time
