Can you help – can’t play Angry Birds on Facebook, there is some kind of picture where I would normally be able to click and play. There is a note saying Angry Birds in Ultrabook Adventure Land and if I click on it a new windows appears with Intel’s logo on it. Started yesterday. Deleted cookies from the computer but the problems persists.

It’s possible that your device is not compatible with the game. You may want to contact Rovio directly with all relevant device information.

By Flurrt

I think this is a bug, but on the kindle version of seasons, i think just kindle, if you complete facebook level 3 on mooncake festival, and press the next level button, it will play the 3 star mooncake. First time you finish it, it wont do anything when tapped. Restart your device and tap on it, it works. I think its fixed, since this was before the power-update.

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

Not sure if its worth adding to the list if its fixed. Could have also been a 1-time thing, not universal by any means.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 7525 points

Nope. Not fixed. Just checked then,and it still lets me play the star mooncake. I don’t even think that rovio knows about it.

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

I don’t claim it’s fixed? I said it was probably unique to your device.

By Golldd

@AMslimfordy, Nope. Not unique. It happened to me also(Android) and I have posted this very same issue on this thread (page 14). However one thing that I noticed was that the score which I had previously (I played the level before 3 starring the whole episode) was overwritten when the level unlocked “genuinely” and showed the score as 0 even though I had scored 88K before. I do believe it’s a strange occurence though.

Woooo hooooo!!!!

This was my response this morning to an email from Rovio. A long standing (at least 6 months continuous, and over a year periodically) bug in Angry Birds Seasons HAS BEEN FIXED.

Bug: Some users are still having issues with 3-star “Big Items” remaining locked, despite obtaining 3-stars on all levels. (More details)

Direct partial quote from Rovio: “the issue should now be fixed the next update of Seasons so that the 3-star bonus levels unlock gracefully without any additional action required from the user.”

We have had dozens of people report this issue and I apologize for not CCing all affected users, but I think this post will suffice for now.

Has anyone noticed that sometimes when you use 2 or more power ups that INCLUDE the Sling Scope it flies to the top left a little? I’ve noticed this but I think it’s just a small bug.

Angry Birds Space 1.5.1 android bug. Level 2-9 of Cold Cuts. Using a tablet emulator running android 2.3 … If I play this level without powerups,the blues brothers do not split. However, all the other birds behave properly…and if i use a powerup, then the blues work just fine.

Yellow birds suddenly are invisible on my iPad except after releasing from slingshot. Does anyone else have this problem? Thank you!

Try restarting your device, SunFlower. It’s a good preliminary bug fix.

By Phung

I wouldn’t call it a bug but I find ham’o’ween level 1-5 mighty eagle feather unachievable. After weeks and countless hours I only manage to achieve 99% two or three times. I have achieved all other feathers throughout seasons except this one. I have also three stared all levels so my level of play is not so low.

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

Have you referred to our walkthrough? We don’t claim that it’s easy, but it’s doable…

By Phung

Yes I have seen fujitoast walkthrough. The two red birds do not do much. I will try again. By the way i’m on galaxy s2 android. Does it make a difference?

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

Shouldn’t make any difference, no.

By Phung

Another two hours yielded another two 99s. Used up the two red birds as well. Will try another couple of days and if still don’t make it will admit defeat. Finally beaten by the game.
Mighty eagles are less interesting as placement of sardine cans seems to be more important than actual destruction in quite a few levels.

By Phung

Just to report back. Got it finally. Luck was on my side when one pig was left standing after the first shot. Got my own sweet time to release the red birds and then landed the sardine can on the right place.
Still think it is an unfair level as it is more about releasing the red birds rather than achieving destruction.
Repeated the achievement by same way and also managed it with fujitoast way. It seems to be more like releasing the red birds rather than hitting anything with it.

By Steve

There appears to be some kind of bug with AB Friends for iPad. It tries to connect to Facebook and just does not do anything. I initially played and it was fine. Fired it up today after a few days of not playing. My wifi and ipad is fine for everything else. I did a delete and re-install, played the tutorial again – then had the same issue – could npot connect to Facebook.just stays on the splash screen withe timer graphic going around and around – waited 10 minutes. have deleted app.

Update: Rovio has reported that the issues should now be fixed. Try restarting your iPad and giving it a go.

This isn’t a bug, just a question. Is there any way to unlock sandbox level s-s on Bad Piggies? I made the mistake of winning all of the levels and then going back and getting the skulls. I am assuming this is why this level is not appearing in my sandbox. I do not want to start over but I really want to play this level. Any suggestions?

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

Sandbox Level S-S is unlocked by collecting 10 skulls. See our Complete Sandbox guide for more information about Sandbox levels.

By daisygirl53bd (@daisygirl53bd)

Thanks for your help…very appreciated..
I got all the skulls and did read the sandbox guide…am I missing something or is the absence of this level a bug?

What does your screen look like? Does it say xx/10 or something similar?

Sorry my bad. Upon further inspection, I realized that there are only 8 sandbox levels plus one more for Field of Dreams. I used the complete sandbox guide to match level for level and saw that I had completed them all. The way it is arranged on the screen makes it look like there should be another level below Rise and Shine. Thanks again for your help…

It seems that the Mooncake flip-flop bug got fixed, at least foe me, in the 3.3.0 update. Also of note is that Seasons is now tracking PU scores sepia rely from regular scores, but not displaying them concurrently… At least as of now…

I got that too., and I’ve seen at least one other post regarding the premature awarding of this achievement. The programming doesn’t seem to jive with the achievement. One for the bug list, I suppose….

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

We have had several reports and believe the claims are certainly true. I will report the bug to Rovio, but since it’s nearly impossible to track any possible resolution as achievements cannot be unearned, (and since its a “beneficial” bug at that), I don’t think it’s worth adding to the list.

Or perhaps it’s because there’s no jetpack in level 4 of Hoth….

By Brooklyn

Hello again. Thanks for that. Very sorry, I meant cloud city level 4. No sign of a boba fett jet pack there. Could it be anywhere else, or perhaps I have an older version of the game (don’t think so – I just bought it from apple about a week and a half ago. Cheers.

has anyone else had problems with the mobile version of friends tournament? Specifically, the gifting and bragging, which go through facebook…every time i try to gift back, or brag, it says an error occurred and to check my network connection (which is quite reliable, I assure you).

Hi Meg and/or Scott.

To our knowledge, there is no “bugged” mango. I would try restarting your phone then very carefully go through the whole list slowly.

On my iPad I can see the icons for Angry Birds Rio etc, but now when I touch the icons to load the Apps the screen (showing the loading screen only for a couple of seconds) it terminates the app and turns back to the icon level, which has not happened before. I gained a lot of points – Golden Eggs – and I do not want to lose my scores.
Can you please advise?

By E-Star (@e-star)

@gerd My advice would be to make a back up from your progress first if you haven’t already, just to be safe. If you don’t know how to do this, check the walkthrough here and perform steps 1 to 3

After making the back up shut down your iPad (hold down the “standby” button long enough for the “shut down slide appears on the screen and shut down your iPad) and start it back up (press the “standby” switch). Try the App agaain. If this doesn’t do the trick, do a hard reset (turn your iPad off like mentioned above and start it up with the “standby” switch AND the “home” button pressed in together, after 10 second the apple logo appears. NOTE it can take longer than usual for the iPad to start up this way) If this doesn’t help also, then there is nothing else to do, but remove the app and download it again, this last method will delete your progress, but if you have preformed the backup method you can retrieve your progress by follow steps 4 and 5 of the walkthrough I mentioned above. Hope this helps and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask!

With the ABO 3.1 update for Kindle Fire, pink bird behaves differently than previously. Before, you could let pink bird hit something, then either wait for the automatic one-second-delay bubble trigger *or* tap the screen to trigger the bubble quicker. Now once pink bird hits something, tapping the screen has no effect — you have to simply wait for the one-second-delay automatic trigger.

As far as I know, this bug only affects Kindle Fire. I haven’t seen anyone else mention it.

I emailed Rovio about the problem in March. Their support emailed me back in April: “This bug has been fixed in Angry Birds v3.1.1, so if you still have the old version, please update it to the newest one.”

However, there hasn’t been any ABO 3.1.1 update for Kindle Fire. After another email, Rovio support wrote back on 15 May: “Angry Birds v3.1.1 is not yet available for Kindle. The update is in the works, and should be available very soon.” As of 4 June 2013, 3.1.0 is still the most recent ABO available for Kindle Fire, and the pink bird bug hasn’t been fixed.

I’m not sure what to tell you. Rovio is not only aware of the bug, but has already patched it and you are simply waiting for that version number to be released for your device. This pretty much sounds like its resolved.

Try heading to download.angrybirds.com and clicking “Download Free Demo” for Angry Birds Seasons (at the bottom). This should get you running.

Note: You will still be prompted to download an update when you run the game. Just ignore it for now; it’s a small bug.

I use Android and SW and Seasons will freeze up on me. All the platforms/pigs/obstacles will slowly disappear and the game stops working. Rio had this issue too for me to the extent that I uninstalled it because the game was unplayable.
