While playing last night, I was going to change to full screen mode (by changing my screen res to 1024*768), so said “brb” and quit.
Changed res and opened the game, only to find that when I clicked on my avatar, it would get to 100% and stop with the program ‘Not Responding’. Before looking on the net to find a solution, I tried rebooting and even repairing the installation (Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs .. EA Land – Change .. Repair) without any success, so with the n00b attempts out of the way, I looked online.
I found the solution and it’s as simple as this:
Find the folder Program Files\Electronic Arts\EA-Land\TSOClient\userdata and there should be 4 folders as indicated in the image
Rename these folders by adding a number or something eg: localavatarcache1 and then create new folders of the old name eg: characters, houses, etc. (or I guess you could just delete what’s in the original folders without having to rename them)
Load up the game and at the avatar selection screen, choose your main avatar that you play as (unless you only have one avatar…) and away you go.
Being on a Welcome Lot means a lot of questions get asked, I’ll be making an FAQ shortly…
