Another Rio 2 episode with crappy graphics and hesitant response. The graphics are herky jerky on some levels and the reset button is hit or miss. So far after several hours play it has only crashed twice, but that is more often than ohter episodes.

What device are you playing on? I haven’t experienced any issues on an iPhone 4S.

Yeah, seems pointless to gripe about “hesitant response” and crashing without specifying your device and OS. In iOS 7.1 there are no problems whatsoever.

Just updated my Rio. I start to play $ test. Blossom news!

I wonder why Rovio decided to only give us 20 regular levels in the Rio 2 chapter instead of 30 like in chapter 1.

They need time to create levels for all their 10 AB games. Also it’s a lot of time, they didn’t release any update for AB Space and AB Seasons.

I count 11 Angry Birds games in the app store.

But I just realised that they removed AB Seasons Free from the app store. :-(

Wow, I never got a chance to come to ABN yesterday afternoon. I was really surprised when I fund Rio had been updated.

Very fun episode, and nice graphics!

I’m still enjoying games like Rio, ABo and Seasons the most I think. It’s refreshing to play the games that seem to be very straight forward, and don’t require too much thinking.

Just figure out which strategy would work best to three star levels, and not have to worry about character swaps, and which level will get you the points you need to open reward chapters without worrying about running out of the needed characters.

For me, AB is more of a casual game than it is for many others. I play on the computer to relax and just have fun, and on the phone, I normally play on log car rides, or while I am waiting for something, and can’t do anything else.

I guess that’s what bothers me most about the fact that I synced some of my AB games. Now I can’ play the synced ones unless I am at home, or in a place with cellular reception. It’s also why I’m not interested in the games which require internet connection. I’m most apt to play games where I don’t have connection.

Anyway, I love this new update. It’s fun and relaxing!

Played all the levels for three stars. They are fun, scenic and provide a bit of a challenge for a higher score. Level 20 and the Anchor levels were the best to get a decent score and had to employ the 3Ps.

By Contributor

Did you hear about the new Bad Piggies series? It’s called Piggy Tales, and Rovio made the first episode already, with a new one every Friday! They animate it with clay-mation, I think. It looks really cool. The ‘Nest should make a post about it.

I can’t watch episodes 14-52 of AB Toons any more. Anybody knows why?

By Contributor

Nope. I can’t watch Eps 1-26 anymore. I think Rovio’s removing them to make room for the next season. They’ve been removed since episode 34, I think.

They’re all on toons.tv I believe.

No. Toons.tv only has 1-13

Could it be country specific? In my country there are only episodes 1-13. But I have not watched the last 4 episodes, I believe (49-52). Is there another way I can watch them?

Looks to me as though the bugs in the high dive episode have also been fixed with the blossom river update.

I’ve only replayed the first half a dozen or so levels so far, so I might be wrong, but for example: level 1’s background used to regularly freeze-frame to the point of having virtually nothing but the background on screen and then either crashed the app or closed out with double-bird points, yet this is not happening now: level 3 used to regularly give 10 points after closing the pu pop-up and either one or two dolphins would occasionally explode, yet neither of these things happen anymore. Also appears to be much harder to reach previous scores, let alone beat them, suggesting some other changes perhaps, but again, I might be wrong…it would be interesting to hear from others who might be replaying the high dive episode to clarify these things.

In Rio 2 levels, the birds look like birds in the toons. The quality is much better !

Yes! You are right @sandeep-kamath! I like the new Matilda the most. However the birds in Rio are the same. The new birds appear in the Playground And Rio 2 episodes.

Why do we have to wait 1 hour to use mighty eagle again in some Angry Birds?

Profile photo of kathi17Rank: Master Slinger with 7315 points
By kathi17 (@kathi17)

You only have to wait one hour if you used the ME to complete a level you didn’t complete without it. If you have already completed a level without using the ME, then you don’t have to wait to use it again.

@rockywrecker You should double-check with Rovio, but it is my understanding that NOOK is no longer being supported with future updates.

I had a problem w/PC update. The upgrade made my highscores.lua and possibly some other data files read-only! After install, I completed Blossom River, then exited. At next startup, it was like Blossom River had never been played. All levels locked but #1, and only the Anchor bonus level available (Unlocking tof hat level is stored in another file)

The Fix for Win7:
Close Rio. Go to C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Rovio
Right-click on the “Angry Birds Rio” folder and choose Properties
Find Attributes: Read Only. The checkbox should have a colored square in it, meaning some contents are read-only. Click that square. The checkbox should now be empty. If it has a black check, click it again.
Click Apply
Click OK on the ‘unset read-only’ popup
You’re done.

Win8 should be the same, just a different AppData location.

Weird, never had this problem, must be something wrong with installing..

That thing also happened in Bad Piggies. I had completed the whole game but, one day when I opened it, all levels were locked except level 1 of each episode! So I uninstalled it and installed Bad Piggies HD. So I had to start all over again :(

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Master Slinger with 5310 points
By Kelani (@kelani)

As far as install bugs go, it could have been much worse. Rovio Support said they’d received no other reports, and weren’t able to replicate it, so I’ll just blame it on Win7. That’s usually the case, anyway.

In future updates, you can bet I’ll test one level and restart before plowing through the whole thing.

Just so everyone knows, the old Double-Counted bonus birds bug is NOT fixed in the 2.1.1 update. A few weeks ago, myself and two other ABN members isolated the bug’s cause and learned how to trigger it at will. That info was sent to Rovio, so hopefully they’ll fix it in the next version.

An update was released today which added an “Enter unlock code” option at the bottom (or was it there before?) Does anybody know what it’s for

Rank: Sling God with 28205 points

Entering valid codes can unlock things like Power Ups.
