this doesn't fill me with confidence reading Lili's comment! :sad:


I'm in Facebook Gameroom right now. I am not having any problems at all. Hope that helps.


ah thankyou! does it look any different from the Gameroom than when youre on FB?


Looks the same. Does have a white border surrounding the game. Seems like BVG or FB could add a players chat who are online and we could talk to one another live to the right of the screen. Zynga had that sort of thing on their browser. I do not play Zynga games anymore since they ran YoVille into the ground. I did like their format. :)


i have a white border surrounding mine on FB anyway... well not so much a border but its all white behind YW and the blue panel up the top which is the FB one with your profile, home, messenger symbols etc. and all the games that friends play, trending games, instant games etc. on the right

Once you downloaded the Game room application, can you still return to FB and play there or only in Game room?

I hope that throughout implementation of all of these changes.. a certain segment of us will not be abandoned.

Please do not forget about MAC users.. :(

There are many of us who play, via Mac computers. And somehow, every time some update comes along Mac users are left in the lurch. I can't tell you how many times I've seen messages informing me that there is NO platform "at present" for Mac systems (everywhere on the internet, this has happened).

Vikings.. please don't forget your Mac using YoWorldian's. Thank you. :hug:

Every time I click yo on the side bar a screen comes up asking me if I want to use facebook or gameroom so as of right now you can chose which way to play.

I have been using game room for almost the entire time it has been out.. I LOVE it ! :heart:
I hardly EVER go to Facebook at all anymore. TOO MUCH JUNK... Having game room lets me log in using my facebook log in and I can play Yo with out seeing any of that FB junk. No ads, not scrollie things down the side, no tickers etc...
I haven't seen any more issues using game room than playing directly IN Facebook..

It looks just like YoWorld does through any browser because really Gameroom is just a facebook games browser.

After the download, you have to install the program just like you would for any browser. After the install, you click the gameroom icon and off you go.

Glad to see you all are getting ahead of the curve.

I use FB Gameroom when Yo will not load on Facebook. It works the same without FB pop ups.

If Yo departs completely from FB i will no longer be able to buy Yo cash since i use FB cards to be able to do that my game play as far as decorating would come to a halt.

So far I have received very little feedback on my inquiries about supporting Kubuntu/Ubuntu or other Linux core OS. Are you guys AT LEAST looking into some options for those of us who use this? I am getting frustrated and concerned the end of YoWorld may come sooner for me than for others.

This will be the case for a long time! We're only beginning to advertise alternative platforms as an option for you, but YoWorld will still be available through your normal browser for a long time to come :)

We have no plans to depart from Facebook any time soon. If ever that becomes a plan, we'll be sure to let everyone know with a lot of notice - but that's a long way away, if it happens at all :)

This particular pilot is focused on Windows & Mac users, which was a sheer numbers vs. time decision. I don't have any details about future possibilities yet, but at a bare minimum, you'll still be able to use a browser for the foreseeable future. I'm sure we'll have more details for Linux users in the coming months! :heart:

I tried it out but tired of clicking the play on gameroom or fb ...it is fine worked fine for me...other than I suspect that after I installed I kept getting booted out of another game I play world or warcraft -WOW ..so for now I uninstalled it..not 100% sure it was gameroom causing that problem but for now ease of Yo fb play is for me that I have a choice.. :D Thanks for working hard on what we can use to keep Yo alive!

Am I correct in thinking some of you are still trying to use Game room from your Facebook page ?
After you download the Gameroom App you don't have to go to facebook AT ALL..
I usually don't even open my web browser if I am just going to be playing YO
I just open the Game room app. on my computer's Toolbar, or use the shortcut the app installs.
Gameroom is a separate app./ or small "program" if you will that runs completely on it's own.
Yes, you still have to "log-in" (using your facebook id and pw.) sort of like logging into say Netflix or Amazon with their id etc...
Since you are using your facebook log-in buying yocash etc still goes thru facebook.

BUT...... If you still LOVE your ad infested facebook., yes, you can Use it like you always do, and click the play on gameroom, or not thing, but just letting you know you do not HAVE to play Yo FROM facebook at all.''

Is this helping anyone at all ?? :eh:
