I finally earned three stars on all levels in Seasons Greedings. But I cannot open the present. I have the golden egg from level 13. I got the “notice” that I had earned 3 stars on all levels and the SG icon reflects 75/75 stars earned. Please help me open the present!
Thank you,
Shannon

I don’t believe that’s an app-wide bug. But you’d need to provide more information.

Think it might have been an issue of not enough space pn my iphone to store it… Got half of them back from a backup and just did the rest again… :-)

My Angry Piggies has done this to me twice now! It seemed to freeze when I tried to open it, and then next time it opened, all my progress was gone! :(

Please fix!

As far as we know, this is absolutely not a universal issue. However, perhaps you should check out our most recent post.

By epidemic27 (@epidemic27)

Actually, that is what happened to me too, but as my iPhone was pretty damn near full I was guessing it might be related to that.

Mine froze when I went to go into Achievements, in game. I had to force the app closed and when I reopened my progress was gone…

I didn’t lose the achievements in the game centre though. They still showed me having completed Ground Hog Day.

Not that I need it fixed, I’m way past what I lost now.

I won’t be checking achievements in game from now though, will come out and go to the Gamecentre.

Yes, at the top of this page on the right hand side in the yellow banner section is my name next to “Logout”. If I roll over my name a menu will open with 8 options, the last one being “Edit Profile”. I clicked on that which took me to the page, and then I clicked on the avatar which opened up another section and the fist open box was titled “What’s new, Barbbjb”

After checking every day for a “new game” for PC’s I finally found Bad Pigs which I don’t think was ever listed. I found it by accident. Anyway I tried to purchase it, but I cannot log in. Says my email address is invalid even though I receive email notices from this site all the time. I also tried my password that I THOUGHT I had listed and that may be wrong also. Not sure what to do next. Thanks.

BTW sorry, if this is posted in the wrong place. Please tell if so and where to post this and I’ll change it. Thanks

Even if you have signed up for newletters and such before, creating a Rovio account is a brand new feature.

By Barbbjb (@barbbjb)

Hello Slim,

I’m sorry, maybe I didn’t state my problem clearly enough. My email address is not recognized as valid. This is the address I use every day and have for years including here. BTW I’ve never signed up for newsletters, and since I’ve bought all the PC games through Rovio I would think I already have an account. Maybe I’m not understanding what you’re saying.

Thanks again,

Barbbjb

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

Simply create an account using this email address. I as well have purchased all PC games for Angey Birds, but buying Bad Piggies was the first time I (read: you and I) even had the option to create an account. So I created one from scratch, as you will have to do as well.

Rank: Champion with 3715 points
By Barbbjb (@barbbjb)

Slim, thanks, and I just tried to do that. I only used one email address and even when I tried to create a new account they STILL would not accept it. Grrrrrr. Just don’t know how to get around this or better said what on earth could be the problem.

Sorry, just re-read my reply to you, and it may be a bit confustin. I should have said I only USE one email address and when I tried to create a new ROVIO account (using my only email address) they still would not accept it.

Best off contacting Rovio with all applicable device information and a receipt number, if possible.

Rank: Champion with 3715 points

Yes, but remember to use that feature you have to enter your email address……and again they would not accept it.

I’m not sure then. You will have to ask Rovio.

Thanks Slim, that’s just what I did. I was hoping to avoid it only because it takes them forever to answer, and in the meantime I’ve downloaded the demo.

We’ll see what happens.

slim, BP i see is unity 3D in credit, also ‘mix’ with Box2D?

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

Unity3D and Box2D still obey the same “laws of physics”. Any solid object in these sorts of games have sensors around them to stop other items, trying to make sure they don’t pass through. But if an item is moving too fast, the sensor may not pick it up, and that’s how these sorts of glitches happen. There’s nothing that can be fixed persay. To improve the sensor would slow gameplay significantly on older devices.

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points

Things happen. Box2D has difficulty with things moving too fast.

I have a bug in activating Bad Piggies. After MUCH back-and-forth with Rovio, my PC Windows 7 SP1 Bag Piggies game will only activate and remain in the full game state if I am wired in to my router. If I connect to my router with wifi, Bad Piggies reverts to the demo game mode, with higher levels locked out. The only glimmer of hope I have from Rovio is that the bug “should” be fixed in the next update.

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

Thank you for the report. We have a separate listing for bugs in Bad Piggies, viewable in the forum. This bug is already listed there, and some of the conversation has suggested the “solution” that you include. Though above all, we greatly appreciate the report from Rovio that it is being fixed.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8000 points
By DaBoid (@daboid)

OK, thanks, I’m new here and wasn’t sure where to post the bug. Yes, I do have an email from Rovio that states the issue will be fixed in the next BP update. HOWEVER, they sent me several “fixes” that did not resolve the problem. I have sent them detailed info as to my PC Windows and IE version, screenshots, etc. I check, occasionally, to see if a BP update is out yet. I am beginning to lose interest in the game, as I am stuck with the demo version two weeks after the game release.

In Seasons Free HD, all the achievements do not register even after beating all the levels (I was supposed to get “Ready for more”). I three-stared Easter and St. Patrick’s theme too and I was supposed to get “Hamrocks and Shenanigans” and “Cracking Easter”; but these don’t come up on iPad 2. I don’t know if this bug is on all devices and if it applies on all achievements but I need some help confirming it. Thank you.

As the linked thread states, there was a change in iOS 5 that affected how achievements are registered in GameCenter. The issue has been fixed in all Rovio apps except for Seasons Free and Rio Free. The issue will be resolved the next time the app receives an update.

Bad Piggies Ground Hog Day 1-25. Built L cart as in vid and about 75% of the time it adds a fourth wheel in the empty space between the three wheels which are all you are supposed to get. Most of the time that it does this the cart Cracks up immediately and when it doesn’t the extra wheel just flies free as the cart goes over the cliff and gets in the way. Got the level done on one of the times it didn’t add the extra wheel.
