Snag Bar not snagging specific items Part 2

by Amy Wong - Jul 03, 2010 Star_s10,078 views

As some of you may know, Zynga changed all the image URLs for all the items from a readable file name like "deco_egg_gold_icon.png"  to some obscure file name that looks like "dc4688462ab43d4a883b6bfede826c9d.png"  This affected the Snag Bar as we couldn't identify specific items so we asked many of our members to help us find the new image URLs. (More info can be read on this thread)

Well guess what, Zynga changed the file names back to the readable ones AGAIN. We suspect the change in file names introduced many bugs which might include the missing critters and they had to revert back the changes. But this change now made the Snag Bar not be able to identify some specific items because we changed 99% of the URLs already.

Unfortunately, our engineers are on July 4th vacation so we won't be able to update the Snag Bar until next week. In the meantime, the Snag Bar still works if ALL the items under a certain category are checked. For example, if you checked the "Eggs", make sure you have ALL the eggs under that category checked. But if you don't want the eggs at all, just uncheck the whole category. This is basically how the old Snag Bar worked before we introduced a more detailed preferences.

Thank you for your patience!
