Lost Game Again   Technical Issues

I have played around after my game reset to level one. You are correct just entering the game starts a countdown to crash to desktop and possible reset, visiting the social page just speeds up the crash. I made a level five and level two game crash just by leaving the game open. There is nothing at level two or   five.  I go into Robert2 but for no more than five minutes and do not do the social room.  THE SIGN THAT THE GAME IS ABOUT TO CRASH IS THINGS WILL SLOW DOWN, IF THAT STARTS EXIT IMMEDIATLLY. Other players have noted the slow down before crash and so have I. All the people that worried that the game would eventually become unstable were wright, is has. Can the dev's fix it? This may be the end of midnight castle. 

I agree with what you're saying, but I'll be kicking and screaming the whole way.  Even back in the day when I bought a game from BF, I would always opt to get the CD in the mail.  I guess it's a control thing; if I have a hard copy, I feel like I own it.

I'm still using an old version of Word because I don't want to acquiesce to a subscription.  But my son plays XBox games, and those have long gone the way of buying "access" to play rather than outright own the CD.  I don't even think CDs are available anymore.

Unfortunately, I don't think the appetite is there to bring MC up to today's technical standards, so the choice may be to stick with an inherently unstable game or no game at all.

Hi all--Here's the reply I got back from BFG after I said I'd be fearful to open my game to see what they restored due to the widespread issue, asking if it had been fixed yet:

Hello Ada,

Thanks for replying back to us.

We have already informed about this issue to the game designers and they are currently investigating this. Hopefully, this issue will be resolved soon. 

We appreciate your understanding and patience while the issue is resolved. 

Have a nice day.

I've wondered what would happen if Big Fish folded, or only did android games in the future (which it seems to be heading towards). Since the games we bought won't play without the game manager, does that mean we don't really own them?

Hi Ada I have lost faith in Dwayne. In his last email to me he told me he had transferred my saved game to my new device!! Great but my game had reverted to level 1 and I haven't got a new device. I can't check MC without updating it which I told him I didn’t want to do while there was still a glitch. I can't check now until 17th October. Good luck with your game.
