| | GUIDE--How to get CURIO SHOP to work for GEM HUNT--post HALLOWEEN MAINTENANCE GLITCH
Hello Gem Hunters....
How many of you can NOT get into the MINES since the latest maintenance update? Or, if you can, are you having a REALLY hard time being able to consistently get in?
I have a solution for you:
As SOON as you log in---do not go ANYWHERE else before you head over to the mines....this is frustrating, I realize, but, bear with me on this....it will have you swinging your pick ax any moment if you do.....
If you have the account issues I do, you get logged off every 4-7 minutes, so, your time is precious.....if at first you do NOT have the curio shop loaded properly, try logging out and logging back in (or if you forgot and went ANYWHERE first--including another page in the newspaper--including "TODAY'S ACTIVITIES").
I have noticed SEVERAL different ways the curio shop will load---only ONE will get you into the GEM MINES---
A FULL ROOM, with NO COUNTER, NO ARTE and they "mysterious green light" from the "other side of the door".---this is really just the MAIN curio shop screen without the "FRONT" graphics. Basically, like a BACKGROUND of a puppet show.....kind of weird, but, hard to explain....
A full room, no counter and HALF an ARTE?? Did he have a TRAGIC accident at a MAGIC SHOW?? This is the main curio shop BACK GROUND with the secondary layer (Arte).
A full room, counter, Arte, maybe or maybe not a menu.....This is the MAIN curio shop screen, SECONDARY graphics, and front graphics---BUT...pay attention---the MAP SCROLL---is it JUST PENCIL thin? OR, is it UNROLLED an inch? If it is "pencil thin" you will not be able to do gem hunt most likely.....and clicking on your "gem hunt gem box" will lock up the mines....
A full room, counter, Arte, a menu, and ARTE SPEAKING with WORD BUBBLES--with ACTUAL WORDS in it!! This is the screen you WANT...it means the curio shop is working.....The map scroll will show up slighly open---like an inch or so (had it been real), and everything should be GREAT!!
Hope this helps.....good luck!!
