Andsoitgoes had this to say. I have no idea what he's saying, but sounds like he has a bux problem too.

I came back in, sans costumes and I wasn't paying enough attention because I was just going though unlocking them after upgrading a whack of store, a lot fewer BUX....

There appears to be a bug wherein if the game crashes shortly after purchasing a costume, it does not record the costume as purchased, but still keeps the reduces bux count.

The workaround for this, for now, would be to do this: after purchasing a costume, exit the game, and come back later. Not the greatest, but at least doable.

This might be a tricky bug to track down (or it might not, based on how it's coded), but I'm sure the Nimblebit guys will figure it out and get a fix out as quickly as they can.

Prett sure this is fixed in the 1.3.1 update.

Unless they submitted this as an emergency fix (which I hardly think impatience qualifies for what Apple considers game killer bugs) this would go through the process like any other update / bug fix. Maybe it might get sorted into a fast track pile, maybe it won't.

In other words, it will be here when it gets here and think how happy you will be with the increased coin when it does! It will just seem all the better.

I heart New England Gamer ---- always cheerful and optimistic, never outraged or sarcastic. Hooray for a reasonable person.

Default Bug Fix

I understand that these things take time and that my impatience does not constitute an emergency but I wish that there was a way to roll back to 1.2 until the fix was available. My husband and I both play this and I updated and he didn't and the difference in the coin count sound when we have both games running is pretty depressing. I won't be so quick to load any future updates until I find out what the bugs are. That being said I appreciate Nimblebit and I love the game.

Realistically, since it only affects the game when it is up and running you shouldn't see that much of a difference unless you have the app open for hours at a time.

Thanks Doffie! I don't see the need for any of the negativity - it's a forum for GAMES!

You can actually downgrade if it bothers you that much. There are instructions here. You can probably find the old version of the game in your trash bin. But as Ian said - unless you have the game open for the entire day it really does not make a difference, it only SEEMS to because when it is open is when you notice it.

(Add: or turn the sound off!)

I did detect a bit of sarcasm in that previous response to me. What I meant to say what that I've heard of the wait times, but that is no excuse for an app to be clogged up for weeks at a time. I know it happens, but it just seems so random sometimes. Either way, I'm not being impatient about it. I really enjoy the game and I will gladly wait until the update comes out.
