Simpsons tapped out lost again!

★★★★ Novice

Well for the second time I've lost my Springfield! This time level 15... 


After getting the error message that there was some maintenance going on, I'm unable to login on to origin, AGAIN...

It starts the Simpsons from the very beginning. AGAIN I can't even get to origin To login. 


This is ridiculous! I thought ea games / origin would of sorted out these bugs. 

I don't think I'll bother getting it again, it's bloody pointless. 


Rating should be fun..

Game crashes during startup screen / no login to Origin possible

★★★★ Novice
Hi there!
I play the game for about two months now. I accepted, that the servers are often not reachable. What I cannot accept, after spending real money, the game reseted! I wasn't able to login to Origin and have to start a new game - offline.
At this time, I am really upset, because I reeinstalled the game and now it doesn't start anymore. After the "home screen" it crashes!
Please help me immediately!

Lost Characters after update

★★★ Newbie


After the racecar update I lost all my characters. I was able to get them back by placing the house or store they were generated by in my inventory then rebuilding the building or store and they reappeared. Problem is I cannot get Lisa or Homer back. In addition to this I lost the squeeky kid. This is an issue because I cannot start the new zombie update without Homer or Lisa. Can you please help?

Tapped Out account wrong level

★★★ Newbie

I was at level 18+. Something went wrong with the loging in part and a whole new game started. I finally got back into signing in but now my previous game is gone and the new game is saved under my account. I keep getting notifications from my old game, however I no longer have my old game. I would like to get back to playing my old game where I was at a higher level than 1. What should I do!? Frown

Hi everyone,


The studio has announced that they will be working on some fixes for the game in the next couple of days. (Read the announcement here.)


The following things are completely normal during such a time:

  • You cannot connect to the server.
  • You cannot even see the Origin icon to log in.
  • The game recognizes your email when you want to log in but prompts you to create a new account.
  • You can log in but you cannot see your Santa Coins / buildings / friends.

If this happens to you, please shut down the game and wait for some time. After that try to log in again.


If you accidentally created a new account or started to play anonymously, you can always shut down your game by closing the app from the multitasking menu and then reopening it.


Just in case - here's how to close the app:

  1. Exit The Simpsons: Tapped Out
  2. Double-click the home button on your device to bring up the multitasking bar at the bottom
  3. Tap and hold the Tapped Out icon until you see the red "minus" button
  4. Tap the red "minus" button to close the app.

We will post any new information about the fixes in this thread:
