I haven't tried it yet. My hubby and I both play from devices with the same apple ID and I don't know if it will try to wipe one of them out. I'm just excited that my game works again!

Thanks for reporting! We have been able to replicate the problem you are seeing. Fortunately this is purely a visual error. The Adventure Airship will still function as normal (including your bonus gold pay outs!) It is simply missing the art. We plan to bring the visual back in a future update. In the meantime it should still work for you.

Thanks!

All of a sudden, I can't visit my friends islands. I get an error message which reads "An error occurred trying to visit your friend. Please try again later."

Not only that but, now Activate won't load for me either. Everything was fine just like an hour or so ago.

I also have the vanishing balloon bug. For some reason though, one balloon is still visable for me.

Also, shut the app down and re-started and have everyone showing now.

If I sign up for an Activate account, but don't like the "social" features, will I be able to turn it back off? I don't know what all "social" means. I'd try it out, but then if I'm unhappy with it, I'd want to make sure I can turn it off again without losing all of our progress. Is it like in Universe where there is no chatting, just anonymous island visiting and sharing? I'm asking because of my young kids that play Lost Islands.

As far as I can see so far, it's only island visiting and clicking a send gift button.

Advisor_Orville:

How do I accept friend requests? I assume that's what the little ! on the Activate symbol in the upper-right of the Lost Islands screen means, but when I tap in there, I see a number 2 in a circle on the "friends" tab, but I can't see anything... only the ability for me to search for more friends, etc.

EDIT: I've found that I can view and accept the pending requests through Cloud Patrol with no problem, but even after a complete shut down and reboot of my iPad (1st gen), there is no way for me to view or accept the individual requests in Lost Islands. So, whatever the problem is with me viewing and responding to friend requests, it is a problem with Lost Islands specifically.

Also, because my small kids play this, I will NOT be linking it to my Facebook account. Partly out of privacy concern, but also because I don't want my kids spamming out announcements about their in game achievements, requests and ads to everyone I deal with in real life via Facebook. That said, is there ANY way to have a 100% complete Activate account WITHOUT linking it to Facebook? If there is not, I think it's bad form on Activision's part unless I can first link it, then disable any Facebook interaction via Parental Controls of some sort, which don't seem to even exist... and I don't want to link it just to find out that it's not possible to do so.

Some people don't want everything linked to Facebook, and believe it or not, some people don't even USE Facebook. What about us?

You should be able to edit who sees stuff from the app via your app permissions section on FB. For FB games I use specific lists for people who play, for other stuff (like what I'd do for this) I make sure it's under "only me" so no one else sees anything posted by it (head to your security settings, then apps. Should be in your app permissions under "Activate". Just change the settings from public/friends to only me). Though I do agree it needs to be made so it doesn't need to be connected to FB.

I just wish it did not need to link to Facebook. I think it's a crappy thing for Activision to do.

If I link to Facebook, and if I restrict the app will my son, when playing lost islands, be able to tap on the Activate icon and somehow post ANYTHING to Facebook or read anything from Facebook without needing to enter my Facebook password first?

I *STILL* have the problem with accepting requests through Lost Islands. I have 6 pending now, but no way to respond... but when I go into Cloud Patrol, I am able to accept them. It's a solid workaround, but it is also a pain in the kiester.

Anyone having problems with selecting stuff now?? When I select a Skylander to send on a quest, it takes me to their select screen with their picture and write up. Then after selecting it then shows the wood cabin end now for 30 gems option. And I have to press visit island or accept gift like 10 times to select it.

I just tested sending a skylander on a quest. It worked normally for me. I used the regular adventure balloon since I don't have any airships.

I get gems MOST of the time, but have gotten exp some also. If you "open" a gift and watch, you will see the pictures of gold, gems and experience cycle throgh before announcing your gift, like they do on the wishing well. This implies that it is random to some degree, although so far is seems to greatly favor gems and I hope they don't change that.

There is no chatting. You can see your friends' names in a list and visit each of their kingdoms. You can also exchange gifts with them. If you decide to play logged out after you transfer your progress you would need to start over.

No need to link to Facebook if you don't want to! You can simply select the "Register using ACTIVATE" option when creating an account instead of "Register using Facebook"

As for the inability to accept invites. Sorry for the inconvenience. We will look into this issue and get back to you. This is the first we have heard of this, thanks for reporting!

I caved and linked it to facebook after talking to some others about what it really allows. I don't see a way that my kids could easily access my Facebook account through the game. I was mostly concerned that they would be (inadvertently) spamming my Facebook friends with announcements from the game, but I set the app in Facebook to only show updates to me.

Activate seems safe and simple for the kids. After trying it, I like it. Well done. The facebook thing I'm not sold on, I don't see any advantage to me in having them linked since I'm not going to invite facebook friends to play. If I remove that app from Facebook, it probably won't do any harm to my save game, as long as my Activate account still works... but I probably won't do that unless I notice it being a problem.

Thanks for looking in to the problem adding friends through Lost Islands. If there is anything else I can provide that will assist, please let me know.
