Critical bug : Unable to play on my own turn (so impossible to finish the fight and have to leave it) :

5th cave, 7th fight, 4th round : I was playing with Blues spies and Chuck rainbird against 2 enemies, a pigiana jones and a cactus pig (the pig which poisons its target, has a buff to deal damage to the attacker on hit and dodge small damages).
Each pig had its own support buff on itself. On my turn, I used chuck’s chili rage ability (but didn’t kill any pig), which triggered the counter attack of the pigiana jones and chuck died from it. I had not played with the Blues yet, but the blue circle disappeared when chuck died. It was still my turn, but I wasn’t able to play. I tryed to swipe from Blues to the enemy to attack or to self cast its support skill on himself but it wasn’t a display bug, the round wasn’t over but Blues wasn’t available for any action. I also tried to turn on the auto play mode, but it didn’t do anything.

Blues stuff : ballista + ballita bolts
Chuck stuff : living ligthning + lightning tome

The bug occurred on iPhone 5, iOS 8.3 with Angry Birds Epic v1.2.7
The phone was unplugged, battery half empty, on a wifi network (even if I don’t think it has anything to do with the bug ^^)

Pretty tough bug, hope you will find out what’s wrong.

angry birds Fight continue cutting out on me. i have lost more gems than i can count in trying to fight ship battles. it makes me NOT want to play any longer. i also now warn others that the fight game cuts out not to get started in playing. i have tried airplane mode and that doesn’t work. my phone is up to date. my wifi is excellent. it’s the game. it cuts out during regular battles as well, not just the ship battles. but, it’s the ship battles that get me b/c i have felt as if i have wasted gems in attempting to fight battles instead of using the slot for items. and when i have used the slot, i keep getting the same items! just doesn’t seem fair for something to cut out and cause us to lose ship energy points and then it take 30 minutes for one to refill or to use a gem that takes so much to work for unless we spend money and buy it – but if things keep cutting out – no money will EVER be spent on this game. these glitches really need to be taken care of. everyone i talk to has the same issue. really tired of it.

Sorry, we can’t help you here, but you could report this issue to Rovio on their support page:

They’re pretty good about responding, so hopefully you’ll find an answer to your problem.

Oh wait!
Are you trying to suggest this page is not at all an official AB forum? And all shouts/reports about bugs here are being ignored by developers?

@admins. The new release 5.1.0 of Seasons Tropigal Paradise is broken, at least for me. I’m on iPhone 5 IOS. I can get to the start of opening screen then the app shuts down/crashes. I even shut my phone off and restarted it. No luck. Can’t play Seasons at all. I see that a lot of people have entered scores on Leaderboard so problen is not affecting all users. Has anyone else reported this issue?

@gypsybird This is mentioned in the release post.

Thanks @amslimfordy. I’ll check there. I poked around a bit this morning and This Season’s release was not yet posted under Updates page or in the Bug area at the time that I wrote to admins. On my iPhone and I just didn’t have time to try and dig through any other areas. I didn’t even think to search for the Release post page. Looking now. Thanks for the response.

@amslimfordy – well that ‘fix’ won’t work for me because I cannot get into Seasons at all – it crashes even before the startup screen full loads. I can’t even get to that play button to go in to where all the episodes are. I’ll try writing to Rovio but when I’ve written to them before (once or twice), I’ve never gotten a response after the automated one.

Yes, I did get the glitch on Pig Days 3-11, but didn’t realize there was a fix out for that until now so I hadn’t even tried it – now it is moot because of today’s update.

@gypsybird How about “Airplane Mode”?

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17065 points
By GypsyBird (@gypsybird)

@amslimfordy – ok. I put phone on airplane mode and Seasons does load – I even played the 1st two levels of TP. I can’t get to the Pig Days though since those are stored in the ‘cloud’. Then I turned Airplane mode off and Seasons crashed again.

I’m almost afraid to try the fix for this indicated on the release post for 5.1.0…the popup on the cloud says it will delete ALL downloaded episodes (not the scores or stars) and I’ll have to redownload ALL the episodes again. Not sure I trust that.

I did backup all through iTunes. I just downloaded that DiskAid tool to ensure I can get everything back but it is not finding my phone. It says to ‘connect’ my iPhone but I already have it plugged in to laptop. I probably need to reboot my computer but I can’t do that just now. I’ll reboot later and try again.

Thanks so much for your help. I did write to Rovio on this but may not hear back right away. I have a login now and can see my submissions.

I tried the cloud setting to delete all episodes – then closed and took it off airplane mode and tried again. Game still crashes before it completely loads when online.

Note – on the instructions that say ‘go to the episode selector, and tap the ‘pig days’ (which should now come with a cloud symbol), and tap ‘ok’ or ‘download’ in the following popup.’

I can’t get pig days to open at all in airplane mode so I can’t do a thing with that one. Boo hoo. I think I need a beer to drown my sorrows in. Not being able to get to Seasons (online) is giving me AB Withdrawals. LOL

Actually, I did get that one popup on Pig Days in AP mode – I went ahead and clicked ‘download’ but of course in airplane mode download is not possible. so that part didn’t work.

Angry birds epic, windows phone:

Free roll does not work when connected to facebook. Visiting my friends birds just does not respond.

By Patty LaChance

I live in Ca. a friend i play with lives in Az. We both are having the same problem with Angry Birds Friends tournament. When we release the bird from the sling shot, it won’t fly. It stays in the slingshot. With the bird still in the slingshot the destruction occurs,then the bird jerks across the screen or just disappears. Everything is in slow motion. We play on facebook using crome. This is the third time this has happened and i have to take it to Best Buy to get it fixed. It works for a month and then it happens again. Please help.

Does anyone know why my angry birds epic will no longer connect with Facebook at all?

Playing on iPad Air. For past week, Piggy McCool is double listed in my list of friends in Arena, both offering free rolls on its machines…but I cant roll on either one. Coming out of piggy mcCool’s nest, the free roll is no longer offered. And we are back to a single listing of piggy McCool. Very frustrating.
On a separate issue in the Arena, a pre-match advert keeps re-playing with no way to stop it, except by force-closing Epic. Tapping the X just repeats the advert. It’s the ad with the buxom warrior woman climbing out of her bath (you know exactly which one I’m referring to!). it’s really putting me off the game advertised. niggly bugs have been cropping up more often in the game these days. :-(

angry birds transformers for android had update today, May 21, 2015, and subsequent to update, app will no longer launch. It gets stuck on the opening page showing loading status at 95%. Rebooting android tablet, cleaning junk files etc has had zero effect.

In red’s mighty feathers, egg defender 14 the fourth vehicle never comes in for me. Then the green flag shows but doesn’t add anything to my popped piggy score. So I can not get three stars on that level.

Using iPhone 6 plus.

By Manu Jauregui

Same!! I don’t know how to pass that level but I don”t want to re-install angry birds or i’ll lose my data! The fourth pig never shows and it just cancels my chance of getting a star for killing pigs and the amount of birds I use :(

Angry birds version v5.1.0 on android LG G Pad 7.0. When I originally downloaded the game it worked fine. After a couple days, when I tap the birds, they have a slow reaction time. Everything else on the game works at the right speed. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but had the same problem as soon as I opened the new download. I do not have these issues playing the same game version on my iPhone 6. The birds destruct as soon as I tap the screen…there isn’t a delay like on the android tablet

I have a huge angry birds 2 bug on my huawei honor 6 plus: stage map and every stages background is neon green and sometimes some other colors too. It’s really annoying because everyone says the graphics are awesome but I can’t really see it.

By J

I have pretty much the same issue on my Honor 6. Not an H6+ but it still has the same GPU which leads me to think that this game is not compatible with our GPUs.

EGG DEFENDER, level 14 and a couple times on another level… as the next pig is inbound, it somehow blows up off screen, doesnt give me the point for getting it, and I have to restart to try again and hope that it doesn’t happen.. so far, on the other levels where I had this issue, if I shot a bird at it before it made it into view, or if I restarted it, the problem would go away. Level 14 has not stopped bugging out, and only lets me get 1 star, while I have 3 on all the other levels… It’s very annoying, please fix it.
