I see 1 advantage and 2 disadvantage, 1 Advantage is collecting daily gift from Viking 1 Disadvantage no way to collect hot dogs in the APP - 2. A disadvantage I still need to use the spyware FB. I would rather have an Android App or Apple App than to add more software to my computer making me more vulnerable to hackers. Norton Utility said no do not load this app. You say I can open this using my browser that's exactly what I do when I go through FB. Gameroom doesn't I still can't find my hotdog notices from my friends in there something FB promises they will fix. I am happy so many are happy about this new app but I would like to have a more robust and useful one that doesn't require me to go to FB for hotdogs.

I downloaded the app, no problem. It actually seems faster for me. One thing I have noticed is some of the things on the screen seem pixelated. The bench along the wall and the sink in the back corner especially. Is this something I can adjust on my computer or is this something you guys are aware of and working on?

I do not use Mac or Windows...I use Linux...I am afraid I will not be able to load the new app with Linux. So does that mean I am up a creek without a paddle? so to speak, lol....Sue
I have noticed other people with the same question. I would like an answer as I do not want to keep spending money on a game I will not be able to play. :heartbroken:

Hey there! As of right now, the Windows download will only work if you're running a 64 bit version of Windows.

We'll have more news for those of you running 32 bit versions soon. Until then, you can still play in a normal browser, and I believe Gameroom should work for you as well.


where on my computer do i got to find this info? as don't wanna download if my computers not 64 bits....

Closed it and reopened it and got a Java Error. Had to open a tab to get FB then went to the YW pg. and tried to open YW that way and white screen again and Java Error. Had no option but to uninstall it. If this is fixed, the white screen and Java Error AND I don't have to open a tab to get to FB, all of the kinks worked out, I MAY install it again. Otherwise, hello FB fix. Not happy being the lab rat. These issues really should have been worked out first before release or at least having instructions in how to fix the problems mentioned, IMO.


agreed

Seems to work, but is slower than what I'm used to. Make it faster please. Like the log in bonuses. Thanks for again saving this game. BVG's rocks!

Hi :D My question about this app is safety. I have been a loyal player for 9 years. Now though I read this in regard to flash use : Adobe Flash Is More Dangerous Than Ever. Adobe just announced that its Flash player has yet another major security flaw—one that's already wild and could let hackers take over your entire computer. ... Plus, a lot of big tech companies hate Flash—Facebook recently nixed Flash-based ads.

I'm not sure how we can safely play now?

One important thing about the "Gameroom" app...
It is NOT compatible for Windows 10...
It will work with Windows 7, 8, and 8.1...period...

Other than that...
This desktop app does work with Windows 10, without any issue...so far...
It's worth a try...

They keep forgetting mobile users....!

So we can’t play YoWorld on mobile anytime sooner?
Such as iPads, iPhones, android phones, other tablets...

Not everyone uses laptop or desktop users?

My laptop is also a family share. I am finding that the last in the BVG app needs to sign out so that the next user can sign in.

First it took almost 7 minutes to load from a white screen to Facebook login. Then it refused to log me in:
Something Went Wrong
Please try closing and re-opening your browser window.
Return home

Refreshing does nothing.

Closed out and tried again 5 minutes later. Long Javascript error message. Closing it closes the app.

The desktop app is not ready to be used. Should have waited til it worked right to release it. No nice login bonuses for me. Or can I get back bonused?
