IMPORTANT FACEBOOK CHANGES FOR GAME APPS!! PLEASE READ!

Please Read below Regarding Facebook Game Changes

Facebook is in the process of doing a complete overhaul of its format. This will greatly impact ALL Facebook apps, especially the games. The developers will have to rewrite a lot of their game code to comply with the new guideline requirements. The date for this change is April 30, 2015.

Many games are already affected and some developers, such as Zynga, have started closing down games, as they do not have the resources to comply with the new Facebook gaming platform on all of their games they have available through Facebook.

The good news is, King has been preparing for this change for months and the change to the new platform should go well.

As a player, you will probably experience disruption in your games until April 30, 2015. You may notice new features becoming available and present features disappearing. PLEASE BE PATIENT. Some games do not have the bandwidth on its server to keep the game active in the process of recoding, which is why you may see “Under Maintenance” notices from some of them. Other developers will be restricting their public bandwidth so they can do their uploads and strive to keep their game active during the process, albeit with slower responses, features temporarily inoperative, freezing, and other symptoms as a result. Make a note of the changes or difficulties you are having. If your game does not clear up within a few days after April 30, 2015, please post a message in your group, and  King will be contacted for a response. Please be as detailed as possible: a screenshot is good, a video of the problem is best.

All games use your Facebook ID to identify you. As of April 30, 2015, each player using a game/app MUST be assigned a unique ID for EACH game/app they play. Some developers have been proactive and have already issued individual ID’s, but many have not. Individual ID’s is just one of the changes coming and it is believed that DELETING and REINSTALLING your game WILL PROBABLY erase all of your progress in your game and put you back to Level 1.

We have to be patient that King, and other Facebook games, will be up to par and functioning as soon as the developers can bring it back with whatever resources they have.

REMEMBER, UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DO NOT DELETE AND REINSTALL YOUR GAME! IT MAY ERASE YOUR PROGRESS IN THE GAME!

You can also use the walls to make bank shots (bend the shot) to reach ceiling. The ceiling will lower when you burst bubbles so that you in the end can see the ceiling of the Bubble Witch Saga Level you currently are playing. Sometimes there is a slight different on how many rows or hint of rows are visible at the same time time if you compare mobile and PC gaming, so if you have problems passing a level, try to install the game at any other kind of device! 8-)

General Advice

  1. Aim high. This is rule number one of any bubble bursting game. In Bubble Witch 2, if you take out higher bubbles, any of the bubbles connected below will fall into cauldrons generating score. Always go for the highest shot you can possible make. Pay attention to the colors that you can sort of make out near the top.
  2. screen1136x1136-53Don’t waste bubbles while playing bubble witch saga 2. Remember, you can swap between two different bubbles by touching the shooter. As long as you can put at least one of the two to good use, you can keep new bubbles coming in. You might be looking at what’s in front of you and thinking it doesn’t matter if you waste that green bubble now, only to curse yourself when you find that green bubble would have won the round if you’d only saved it.
  3. Pay attention to what color is next in the queue. Sometimes you have a choice between two different, equally attractive groups of bubbles to pop. How do you choose which to go with? Well, check which color is coming up next in your shooter, and pop whichever side will open up bubbles for your next shot. A little bit of thinking ahead can save you from wasting shots.

  7. Try to break bubbles with every shot.Breaking bubbles makes a spider drop. Shots that don’t break bubbles make the spiders climb back up. Spiders don’t help you clear a stage, but they do help you earn points, and everyone likes to get a higher score. As long as it’s not going to hinder your ability to finish the stage, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t aim to have as many spiders out as possible.
  8. Carefully manage the few free resources the game offers you. You’ll get a chunk of gold when you start the game. Do not spend it on anything other than unlocking the next set of stages when you reach a gate. It’s tempting to use it for five extra bubbles if you get really close to winning, but you can always get another chance to win, and those five bubbles are in no way guaranteed to be the bubbles you want or need. If you spend your gold foolishly, you’ll either have to wait five days, bother your friends, or spend real money on gold to open the next set of stages.
  9. screen1136x1136-54The free power-ups are equally valuable. The game will give you three of each new power-up when you unlock them. It usually means for you to use at least one of them on that very stage, but that’s a bad idea. The game will never give you any more of those power-ups, so do not waste them on an easy stage like the ones they’re given to you in. Save them for situations where you’re truly stuck, and even then, only use one if it absolutely guarantees your victory.

  1. Goal Advice
  2. Clear the Top – Your goal here is to remove bubbles until you reach the top of the play area, where you have to remove six of the topmost bubbles to clear the stage. All of the general advice applies well to these stages. When you reach the top, remember that you don’t have to remove all of the top bubbles. You only need to take out six, so plan your shots accordingly and don’t waste them on removing layers you don’t have to.
  3. Save the Animals – These are probably the most difficult stages in the game so far. You screen1136x1136-55need to free a set number of animals who are trapped in bubbles. You can free them by dropping them, but larger animals can prove to be irritating blockers. In these stages it’s absolutely vital to look for higher opportunities and use skillful bank shots to conserve your limited shots. Remember, you’re not specifically trying to reach the top here. Removing bubbles that aren’t connected to the animals is only useful if it helps scroll the screen up.
  4. Free the Ghost – A ghost is set in the middle of a bunch of bubbles, and you have to free it by removing the bubbles immediately connected to it. You can hit the bubble group on either side to rotate the whole cluster, and the farther to one side you hit it with your bubble, the faster it’ll rotate. Since the top of the play area is clear of bubbles here, you can use it to make bank shots to hit the part of the structure that seems out of reach. Just remember, you only need to take out the bubbles directly touching the ghost. If your shooter is loaded with a colored bubble that won’t help you reach that end directly, feel free to use it to spin the structure to give you a cleaner shot with one that will help.

Ccleaner is a safe and free registry and cache cleaner

If you have problems with Bubble Witch Saga, you are often given the advise to “clear out your cache” or “delete you temporary Internet files”. What the….??? Well, I have made a guide for that earlier, on howto clear each of the most used browsers individually. If you aren’t getting in to BWS and have tried alternative browsers you are probably pissed as it is  already, and don’t feel like doing the same job with all your browsers one by one. Well my friend, you don’t have to. :)

get ccleaner

Click on the green button at your upper right hand to get CCleaner

Download and install CCleaner.  This picture above shows where exactly you should click at the download page to get the right program. Many are fooled by the ads at the page and can download the wrong thingy by accident, so be sure to click at the green button with the text “Download Latest Version”.

The Blogging Witches’ recommended preferences for optimizing BWS with CCleaner.

Open CCleaner. The first time you use it, it opens directly to the right place and you can choose to just hit the “Run Cleaner”-button and let it do it’s magic. The default settings however clears out Download and Internet history from your computer and those aren’t relevant to get a better working game, so I tend to unpick those options, as they contain relevant information to me.  You see at the example above, where I have moved to the right hand tab in the sweepers’ choice menu in CCleaner. That is how I tick the boxes, but the default settings are usually good for most of us.

I recommend that you clear out your cache at least once every week.

To make a deeper clean-up you should clean out your register. That you do by choosing the second box at the left hand side. First scan for registry errors, then just clean out them all. I have done this procedure successfully on hundreds of Windows machines and it have never caused any problems, cleaning the registry with Ccleaner just make the PC faster.

I recommend you run the registry Cleaner once every month.

Trick & Tips! Use the best possible feed overview to gather coins from your(my) wall feed

Hi there bubblers, this is an old article, that I have rewamped to meet the needs of today. I hope that this will help you in your quest for coins. :)

We look for wall posts from Bubble Witch Saga EVERYWHERE. But it should not be that way. I discovered this quick link for easy access to the wall feed from Bubble Witch Saga, I call it “My wall feed for Bubble Witch Saga“. By using this direct wall feed that filters out everything except Bubble Witch Saga posts I feel that I have an advantage, and this without any Bubble Witch Saga cheats at all!

http://www.facebook.com/?sk=app_256051837747677

Remember; We have the Mini games as well! 

As the hearts turn into coins if your friend have a full life count, you should also read HOWTO gain almost unlimited lives in the game.

If you want to claim from the wall feed posts without playing the mini games, click the text(link) in the post that says “Play and win free coins! in your feed

There are several auto collector games on facebook, but I would strongly recommend not to use them, for several reasons. 1) none of them clicks on your own posts. With the new timeline finding your own posts seems to be challenging for many, this wf-link is probably the best way – for now at least. 2) The collectors gain access to a lot of your personal data on facebook, do you really trust them? 3) The AutoCollectors can not play the fun mini games 4) With the right technic you can collect Bubble Saga Bonuses much faster manually! Next I will explain how.

When you are at the Bubble Witch Saga wall feed page, You open up links in a new tab, that way you can tend half a dozen posts in a blink. Then you go through your tabs and check if there are messages with the text ACCEPT and SEND. Make sure your click on those green buttons where the word SEND is present, otherwise you simply are doing it wrong, as the main thing making this game special from other bubble popping games is to be social and help out friends. I usually clear out my request queue before collecting from my wf and keep an eye on the notifications. With the help of notifications I can stop my collecting rampage to answer a request sent to me in the middle of my gathering.

Then close the tabs, either one by one if you ain’t certain that the request queue is empty or if you are using Chrome, click on your tab and choose “Close tabs to the right”. You don’t need to feel like you have exploited any cheats. (the Auto Collectors aren’t really endorsed by game designers…) This is a really good Bubble Witch Saga trick, don’t you think?!

I have added the “My wf”-link to the right in the menu at this site, so I personally easily can access the Bubble Witch Saga wall feed via this Fan Site whenever I like to. You can use this same link as well. :)
