Became friends with a Patrick first part of March I think. Still have patrick. If that is not you, yes please add me. Good luck with the game. Unfortunately I have had about 3 others that lost their games also. Crazy!

Hi Mysty I have u on all 3 of my games Aly which I gift dinosaur bones to you as I will be closing Aly down mid to late October, as it is on a desktop I will be traveling in my caravan. I also have Meek and Patrick. They are on my laptop, I will be playing both games from then on but won't be using Aly. Maybe in 3 or 5 years I may have a desktop again.

Hi Meek, Thanks for the heads up on your Aly Game. Sorry to see it go! I'm guessing this is why you posted the No Gifts message? Or would you like to receive gifts until that time?

I posted a no gift message as I was trying something out but worked out that it would take to long to get what I wanted a was not worth the time or effort.

My game has crashed for the 5th time.  At least on two occasions I received a message saying there was a problem with the save and it would be fixed so try again later.  Fix never came so I started over.  After the 3rd crash I contacted Big Fish and they asked me to give them everything I had acquired.  With no way to backup game I did the best I could but the best customer service could do was put me at the same level and give me a bunch of diamonds, coins and stuff.  With this crash, I am done. I wonder if the reason that so many of the friends in my game were no longer active is because they were tired of game crashes.

I was backing up my game daily.  When my game crashed I tried loading the backup file and Elephant games just overrides it when I open the game.  If you know how to load the backup without this happening, I would love to know your secret.

I'm so sorry to hear that this has happened to you again.  No you're not the only one this has happened to during this event.  I have 6 other friends of mine that this has happened to but there have been others in the forum that have reported the same issue.  Some of them had a backup of their game and it didn't work when they tried to restore their game.  Here is the discussion about it:

So I opened my game about an hour ago and Meek (game id***245, Level 97) is still showing in my game and the private room is still available.

Meek, so sorry this has happened again! This crash though sounds like the one that can be restored in full except for friends. My TopCat game, like Tammy, can see your friend/avatar and private room. That should just mean a transfer of old ID to new ID.

In the other type of crash with the "problem saving" message, friends just disappeared altogether and you couldn't even find their ID in the search.

I hope you continue. Even though TopCat is purposely not at a high level yet, Meek has been one of her first and most faithful friends :)

In all my crashes I have never lost the friends list.  The game just resets to the beginning losing everything but the friends.

Have you opened your game and checked the ID? I have experienced 2 types of crashes: One had the save message and reset to level 1 but kept the same ID and all friends; the other reset to level 1, no friends and a new ID. On the second type I was able to have them transfer my old ID game to the new ID. Kept all achievements, avatars, pets, completed puzzles, coins, diamonds...just had to re-invite friends.

Maybe worth a try? I totally understand, though :(
