    My messaging went haywire some months back, but I now use the stand-alone flash player and its fine, probably because these days browsers are dumping flash player
  • switching to stand alone Flash player helped me as well in typing and yes, browsers are getting hard on flash. Flash is gone in 2 years if some haven't heard.

  • Getting really tired of this happening at least once a day, particularly when there is a message from the leader. Any chance it will make the fix it list soon?



  • @farmgirlmimi43 (US1) I agree it is very annoying :/

    It is a known issue & even though it appears to happen a lot, it has proved difficult for the techs to deliberately reproduce it. For me it seems to happen when I have been logged in for a long time & relogging fixes it, but if you have any other suggestions for how to "make" it happen, please let us know & we can pass that on to the techs. :)

  • It happens a lot in our co-op as well.   ......Lag...LagLag...Lag    :#  

      For me,  it seems it is worse the longer I have been on, and usually,  all I have to do is log off then back on.  If that doesn't cut it I will reboot altogether.  Now when sending a co-op message and there is lag I hit the ctrl, alt & delete, then cancel it and that will work most times to let me finish my task of writing.  But then there are the freezing times...I think it's fair to say it would be nice not to have to deal with it altogether.

    I was looking forward to the new chat we tested.  There were some good ideas added...I haven't heard when they plan to implement it though,  anyone know  ?

    @SANDRAUser60 (US1) It is still coming - This is what Dennis said about it in his live chat last November:

    Daniel: Since we are on scheduling and planning and stuff, we've had a question from the Twitch users. So, they've had the new chat system, they got a little preview of that, on the test server. When can they kind expect to see more of these features come into the live servers? 

    Dennis: The thing about the chat was, it wasn’t really complete, it actually had less functions than the old chat but in a new style, we wanna add all the other functions as well, that we got feedback for and it should have at least the functions that the current chat has, but even more. And we need some more development time for that because we ran into some problems with our legacy codes there, therefore it probably won’t come before the beginning of next year.

    Okay. I've been paying attention to when it happens. Most often when I've been logged on but inactive for about six hours or more. Techs might want to try it.

  • @lycrafarm (NL1)  Annoying isn`t it :/

    This is a known problem, which the techs are finding difficult to reproduce in order to find the cause. It seems to mostly occur when you have been logged in for a long time. Until they find a way to resolve it, all you can do is relog & that should fix it.

    Yes. Probably due to this: https://community.goodgamestudios.com/bigfarm/en/discussion/178215/announcement-wwc-scores-coins

    Yes, was informed by CM Hunter that it is due to the problem mentioned about this first week of WWC.

    Invisible Ink.... I love it :)

    Have them check which browser they are using.
    Here is some help with the best browsers for this game 
    https://community.goodgamestudios.com/bigfarm/en/discussion/173709/best-browsers-to-use-for-good-games#latest

    Many are also finding good results from running a stand alone flash player

  • I understand that certain browsers don;t do well with flash, but flash is used for the messaging?  usually it is more of a graphic thing.

    Just restart Big Farm. That usually clears up the message error. I get that error almost every day if I don't restart for 8-10 hours.

  • Thanks for your input, I left her a message to restart more often, she does use chrome so it is not that.  II know I have to restart at least once a day or I get errors and my track pad wants to click instead of tapping, which is really a pain.

    A small warning that googles chrome uses the most resent flash player version (3.0) which does not run as well on this game as the previous version (2,9)

  • I actually use a different version of chrome, but not sure what my coop player has, chat is so cumbersome in this game only being able to type a paragraph at a time

    That is one area of the game that they are working on. We have tested a new type of chat on the test server. Which in some ways was better but it to had it's restrictions. One of the biggest complaints of this game beside the bugs/glitches is the chat & in game messages. Both do not allow a reasonable sized area to communicate help to needed players.

    @GoldenrodFarm (US1) This has been a known issue since last year, it usually happens when you have been logged into your farm for a long time. If you coop member just relogs that should fix the problem.

    I got the following message when I wanted to reread a mail I had sendt. The mail opened, but it was empty. What I had written did not show.

    Support-Info:
    Command:
    PBMessageReadMessageResponse
    Error-Code: 3
    Timestamp: 1545167455
    PID: 585715

    Also I can´t seem to enter messages at chat. They won´t got through.

    I use HTML.

    Hope this is a short time problem.

    Cheers :)

    Screwed up message system happens to me occasionally too. I just reload the game and, so far, it has always fixed it.
