Oh dear, not again !!! ~ the next time you are able to get into your fully restored game, please try to back up your game right away after you Exit.

I make backups of ALL my 13 Castles at least once/week, and during Events & CC's (even if I'm only going in to Gift occasionally) I back them all up every other day. There's a lot of demand on the EG Server(s) during Events & CC's, so I'm not surprised the data gets corrupted.

I don't always copy my backups to a Flash Drive, but I make a Folder on my Desktops (for each User/Castle) to house my Elephant Games folder backups. 

Takes about 1 minute or less for each Castle.

Restoring my Castles myself has worked every single time, and they've ALL be Reset to scratch or a slightly higher, but low Level  (with their same Game ID's several times over the years)

Fingers, legs and eyes crossed, Meek!

Thanks Dhyani I forgot to back it up so silly of me! I now have back ups of my other 2 castles and as soon as I get Meek back that is the first thing I will do. I have everything crossed as well. At least at the moment I have a fresh install of the game manger and midnight castle.

Good luck Meek, 

I'll keep you on my list and hope your totally back at some point. How frustrating. I have several friends missing, or game crashing. Like others have said above, fingers crossed & hope to see you soon!

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.
