New way to crash :-(

I happened to me. I could reload the game but took too long time. It crashed more than 1 hour during reloading. I am sure you will be able to download. If you have time, don't give up, whenever it crashes during download, you tap on the game.

    With all the stocking hysteria going on, I'm guessing the servers are getting hit pretty hard. Maybe try downloading again once things calm down. Good luck!

    Ok good to know. thanks. I will be patient.

    Though it's been over an hour already. I got to update 29/39 after 20 minutes, but update 30 (which seems to be >10 mB) is not happening for 45 minutes now. Somtime I get from 55/81.5MB up to the high 60s, other times, not even to 57.


    But your game worked again once you got it all downloaded again? If that is all it takes I will keep working at it.

    After I got it all downloaded, it took 30 minutes to get into the game. It recognized my ID but it crashed whenever I tapped to login the game. Don't worry, your Springfield is not lost. I thought mine was lost but it was there.

    A small note: I don't have origin client on my computer but you can still see the list of your friends as long as you can login and log out while the game is crashing. When I logged in, I saw a friend and according to the list, this friend is not my friend for Simpsons tapped out but just a friend of me on origin (no idea what it is, perhaps he was playing tapped out before and later he deleted it). anyway, I blocked that person and I could get the game. It is perhaps just a coincidence. But just check your friends and see whether tou have a friend who doesn't play tapped out and/or have not logged in for a weeks. Good luck. Hope you get your game back soon.

    yeah I am pretty sure my springfield is still there (I could see it for a second or two before each crash, once I even saw the beginning of the Homer conversation about stockings)), I just can't get to it.

    How do you get to the friend list if the game crashes immediately? I do have that suspicion that there is a recent addition to the friend list that causes all of this, but when I checked my list on my computer, nothing new appears (I don't have a lot of friends)

    Iv been crashing like crazy today, I have d/c in my town and while doing the friend bonus and i would rarely crash doing the friend bonus but ive crashed 4 times already throughout an hour and i just gave up, Its crazy today, but iv also made my town more likely to crash with the 200+ trees/fences iv added but that shouldnt affect me when im loading freinds towns so id have to say MS are the reason why :?: :?:

    I got through the redownload.

    Solved nothing :-(

    Problem seems to be that I get exactly 20 seconds before crashing no matter what. That's how long I had for each download step, and now even if I don't hit "tap to coninue" on the "welcome back" screen it will crash after a total time of 20 seconds (counting after I first click on the icon to start the game).

    It all started before the mystery stocking madness, so I am not sure what the issue is,,,I did write EA, but have not heard back yet
