I tried, but I keep getting the Gameroom version. And no, I am not clicking the wrong one. I uninstalled Gameroom just to be sure that nothing was on my machine, and then reinstalled the desktop app.
I still get Gameroom and I HATE Gameroom. The graphics are horrible.

Please tell me what I'm doing wrong or how I can ensure Gameroom is not downloaded

I've downloaded it and am VERY pleased!!! It runs very smooth for me! The screen is actually much larger for me and much better!!!! Thank you so much!!! However, there is only one small thing i've had a problem with, i can't use paste {copy/paste} lol. I can always type in the info, rather than being lazy. :thumbsup:

I'm afraid to download the desktop app. I have been in this game since 2009. I have a lot of houses and a lot of stuff. I seen where some people are asked to start a new avatar. I DO NOT want to loose my progress of 9 years. If this were to happen to me. I will quit. I will not start all over again. Took me way to long to get where I'm at today . Feeling very nervous, stressed and a bit worried about this transition. A very concerned long time player.

Is there system requirements such as use 64 bit systems or 32 bit systems?

I installed the PC app without issue. I did have to authorize it several times with my firewall. I see people are worried they will lose their avatar, you won't. I see people worried they will lose their homes or items, you won't.

The only issue I really have is how to collect hot dogs. What is the method for this now?

So I jumped on the bandwagon and downloaded the app in the hopes that all of the refreshing and lagginess would go away. Seems just as slow as before, and I still have to refresh because the server gets lost when switching locations, such as after shopping in a sale, and I want to go to store, for example. I didn't detect much of a difference at all....Meh...

The downloaded app is working faster for me and I like that. BUT... one inconvenience is jumping between game and forums. I signed on this am into FB as I normally do. My side bar there with the games, is where I normally click for YOworld. So i did that.. It directed me back to the downloaded desktop version that I downloaded yesterday. Now, when on YO and if i want to check out the Forum I now have two windows open. One is the game and the other the forum. I thought we had an option when we downloaded the deskt top version? To be able to go into YO thru FB as in the past. OR click on my desktop icon and go to YO thru there. This is not giving me the option to go the way I have always entered YO, since I downloaded the desk top app. AM I missing something? :eh:

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.



How do you sign out of this?

It works the same as signing out of Facebook - drop down the little arrow in the top right hand corner :)

Did it say anywhere on the pop-up anything about system requirements?
I was sooo excited to see how it works, but only after downloading I saw it requires 64bit system :( .. I run on 32bits, Windows 7..
I hope those of us who can't install it now won't be left out...

Well, managed to get logged into Facebook through it. still won't load the game. Just the side panel. I'll happily use it when the Vikings get it actually operational. Until then, I'll be forced to stick wit the Flash version. Yech!

So be sure and let me know when you have a new and working version I can download. Looking forward to actually being able to use it. One day.

So far so good! No problems and it is faster I can even type in the message area now, even chat a bit. You're on the right track...might even be able to visit with friends again in a room in the future with no lag and be able to chat with a group of friends. Keep up the great work BVG!!! :D :drink: :heart: :hug: :rose: :thumbsup:
I think I'll just be happy today... :smug:

You'll still be able to play YoWorld in a traditional browser right up until the final 2020 date (I believe the 'deadline' is sometime in the summer). We'll likely have more news for Linux and other OS users long before that date :)
