crashing again?

Prev1
Yawh, it does seem worse. Mine crashes when I try to store stuff, tap on "!" Bubbles, collect rent - just about any time. I'm hoping the next update clears some of it up. I'd like to get a shot at Sideshow Bob as well in my update.

    This is the first time it has been like this for me, crashes every time after I hit the "continue" screen (it does recognize it's me). It's been happening for the past few hours (was fine this morning).

    And only a week ago I finally bought some premium items....

    Mine just started doing it. The game was completely fine and working well not 12 hours ago. Now I get into the game just to be kicked out in a few seconds.

    I'm hoping that it is temporary.

    Oh my... I'm stuck in a crash loop now myself. I can log in... See my town, even tap a house or two before it kicks me out. When I go back in, those houses are un-tapped. Happening on both my iPad and iPhone.

    My first real problem... *sigh* I suppose it had to happen sometime. I hope it is resolved soon!

    I never had a problem until i maxed out and started expanding more land houses decorations etc!!

    Just deleted tons of decorations including 100's of white fences I believe when calculating the bonus crashes my games

    Am making a rule up 2 of each house no fences white or standard one tree per house

    ^^ sorry, Spiff and warp, to hear you're having this too.

    I guess it means it's a more widespread problem.
    I can't get to see if I can tap, at best I can see the entering view of my town for about a second, and once or twice I was able to tap the (newly appeared) "collect from restaurants" task. And hear the music for 1 second.

    And I hear people on the decorations, but I haven't changed those recently (though I have quite a few hedges), and even if that was the issue, I can't get to removing them in the first place.

    Most people think that the Christmas event ends tomorrow (the majority of players do not come here or check Facebook) so I would imagine that there is some frantic coin collecting then add in all those who have heard about the Mystery Stockings or the Neighbor Bonus and are trying to get more cash before the next update....

    Yeah, all my people are on 12/24 hour tasks until further notice lol because I expect things to be very unstable for a day or two.

    I will, of course, be monitoring here to see if those stockings materialize or not. I have 2500 coins burning a hole in my pocket and I don't want Greedy Homer to eat them.

    I got adventurous and downloaded Monopoly Hotels just so that I could get into my Friend list and attempt to delete one known jailbroken neighbor, thinking that perhaps was causing some crashing... No Go. MH is crashing on me right away too.

    I suppose I could fire up the old PC to use the Origin Client there - soooo wishing there was a client for Mac!

    I experienced the opposite; last night and this morning the game would crash within moments of entering my town. Then I got a huge update that I assume will be a time-release for the upcoming sales or something. But either way, after the update I was able to play perfectly fine without crashing for at least half an hour and another time after that. I tested the things that were causing crashing before: "!" Speech bubble, collecting, build menu, assigning tasks, visiting friends. No crashes! I hope this gets resolved for everyone else too :/

    I do recommend NOT to delete the game because I can't redownload it. I deleted my ipad and now waiting for restore from backup. Offf! I am really worried. Like everyone, I spent time and money on this game and I really want to have my Springfield back :( good luck to everyone.

    I removed the most recent 2 friends I had just added (sorry) through the PC app, to see if they were the problem, but that didn't fix it.

    Based on didemlale's post, I am not daring to delete game yet...
