The bug for golden egg flip flop says that its for trick or treat in the description, but you are describing mooncake festival.

Whoops, I copied/pasted from a previous bug. Missed that one ;). Fixed now

Since the Piglantis update in ABS (PC version), I lost my stars in all my golden eggs and in all the big objects (heart, xmas present, picnic basket etc) even though I replayed them all and I got all the stars again, but for some odd reason I can’t get the star of the big heart from Hugs and Kisses, I replay and kill all the piggies and get the screen showing that I got the star for that level but when I go to the golden eggs page, the big heart has not the star, IDK if someone else is getting this bug.

Check our image of the Big Heart. When it is “lit”, it is very very subtle.

Sometimes when I use pink bird, she will blow a bubble and do nothing to the level. She will bounce around like a normal bird. 5 seconds later everything around her turns into a bubble. Is this a bug/glitch?

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Might be a glitch with your system. The RAM requirement seems to be a bit higher with this version due to the updated graphics.

By Numberouane

Hi
Im playing AB seasons on iphone 4, latest released installed 2.5.0

I completed already wrecked halls, got 3 * every levels , got the golden egg, total score of
2 470 700.
Now the issue: i decided to go for the feather achievement but now, whn
I open wrecked halls, only 8 first levels are available wiz 3*. All others
Are not available like if i never completed them.

What can i do?

Thanks

It’s a known minor bug.
All you need to do is to replay the last available level to unlock the next one.
Your highscores should reappear.

hint: use Mighty Eagle to speed up the process.

By Numberouane

I confirm u right.

Thanks.

Maybe should be added to the bug list with
Workaround. Im sure it might help many fans.

I updated Angry Birds seasons on my Android phone. The back to school part works fine, but for some reason the “Piglantis” level 2-9 went from 3 stars to 2. Probably easily fixed by re-doing it and better my score, but still word mentioning.

Rank: Sling God with 26055 points
By sal9 (@sal9)

That’s because the three star threshold was raised.

Hi there,

I’ve recently “updated” Angry Birds to Back to School on my iPhone 3G. After doing so I find that the animation is no longer smooth. When flying through the air, the birds appear to judder as they progress, seeming to go back one step before going forward two. The falling debris appear to be affected similarly too :o(

Try restarting your device. The 3G has very little RAM and may have difficulty running the app as it continues to grow and evolve.

I also just updated with the back to school update on my LG optimus M. I have never had any issues playing this game and now mine does the same exact lagging shudder. It has made this game almost unplayable. I have tried to clear the cache and reset my phone many times and still no difference.

2 items: I have all 20 currently possible feathers for Red Planet, but the score says 19/20.

“Menu popper” also still does not seem to work for me..

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

1) Not a bug. Check for a smaller-than-average feather on one of the levels. It was a tweak a few updates back to display a small feather if your eagle highscore is between 1 and 99%. It’s very confusing, IMHO.

2) We haven’t heard any issues with this recently, but I’ll see if I can investigate this further.

By Bird Gamer

On Angry Birds Space, where I have 2 feathers in Pig Bang, the menu stated one. I have 2 feathers in Fry Me To The Moon it stated I had no feathers. Utopia, I had 2 feathers, and it stated one.

Rank: Sling God with 26055 points
By sal9 (@sal9)

Are you sure you scored 100% on those feathers?
AB Space will place a smaller feather on levels where you scored below 100%.
The menu will only display the number of “full size” feathers ( aka Total Destruction, 100%)

Hello Slim,

I was so pleased to see the new Angry Birds Seasons Back to School for PC, but unlike all my other updates etc I opened Seasons and there’s nothing there. I did see after checking that some people are not notified and to download the FREE Demo. Well, I’ve already gotten the whole Seasons except for this, so wonder if I should just wait and see if I’m notified (or can I request to be notified?) Grrrrrr. Thanks for your advice.

The “Demo” is just a new exe file. It’s safe to download.

By Barbara

Thanks slim, no, I knew it would be safe, my concern is since it’s offered at the “store” if it wouldn’t be the “sample” version of what I already have. So if I’m understanding you correctly there will be no notification if I already haven’t gotten one?

Barbb

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

I don’t foresee one. But all of your data (including the fact that you have already entered an activation key for the full version) should be maintained when downloading the new “demo”. So it’s basically using the auto-updater without the “auto”.

How come you can’t post scores on the Seasons leaderboards if you are using Chrome especially when the game is available on the browser?

There are some notable differences between chrome and other platforms. Specially SG and SP.

You wrote “Both Christmas Level Selection Screens BORKED” by accident. You said BORKED instead of Broke.

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Actually, “borked” is a common term in programming and gaming. It is a “broken” way of typing “broken”. See Online Slang Dictionary. (As another example, “pwned” instead of “owned”)

I did. I forgot to delete v.2.1.0. I don’t want to, anyway. I beat all 30 levels of Surf and Turf and if I want to look at a level on my PC, it would be gone. 2.2 is on my SD card and I got too much space used.
I just remembered it.

Has anyone using iOS seen that rarely the Mighty Eagle will not go after the sardine can but way over it. I’ve noticed it in Seasons Greedings, but it could be in other episodes as well. Version 2.5.1.

Rank: DaBomb with 280 points
By Grandpa Bacon (@27-03)

On ABChrome the ME rarely eat the sardines and is sometimes way below the sardines which causes extremely low destruction percentage.

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points

That happens if the sardine can is still moving.

not a bug or a glitch, but a change…”improvement” according to me!
the level-ending screens on all episodes in PC ABS now match the style of PC ABO / ABR / ABSp – vertical bar with stars & high score flying in –
earlier versions had screens similar to those on iOS…”dull” according to me!

My issue is with AB Seasons V 2.6.1, running on IOS 5.1.1 on an iPhone 4 GS.
After months of trying got 3 stars on all levels in Hogs & Kisses, BUT whilst playing “off-line” in that I didn’t have a wi-fi/3 or 4G connection. Achievement shown, 3 stars shown, but Golden Egg won’t open. Can see there is an issue with off-line achievements, but couldn’t see one for the Hogs & Kisses game. Any news of a fix? Have synced with iTunes on PC, & re-done level whilst on wi-fi, but no avail.
