Sorry for all the techie stuff for those whose eyes will glaze over after seeing the things below.

Some interesting findings:
- Purchases done AFTER the update aren't properly registered, they're seen as 'missing' and a restore is attempted at every start of the game.

Code: Select all

I/Application( 5709): OnGetPurchasedMTXItems
I/Application( 5709): Restoring lost purchased item: Swimsuit Bundle
I/MenuMTXCurrencyWidget( 5709): BuyLostMTXItem: pack present
I/MenuMTXCurrencyWidget( 5709): BuyLostMTXItem: item.sb present
I/Application( 5709): Restoring lost purchased item: Wedding Bundle
I/MenuMTXCurrencyWidget( 5709): BuyLostMTXItem: pack present
I/MenuMTXCurrencyWidget( 5709): BuyLostMTXItem: item.sb present
- Actions which cost or rewards in any currency are attempted to be logged, yet fail (which causes lag too)
Many lines of stuff like this:

Code: Select all

I/TELEMETRY( 5709): EVT_GP_EVENT_USER_EAL, EVT_KEYTYPE_ENUMERATION = Finished Work, EVT_KEYTYPE_USER_LEVEL_DATA = 049
I/TELEMETRY( 5709): Can't send Log Event: EVT_GP_EVENT_USER_EAL
I/TELEMETRY( 5709): Date: 2013-09-19 Time: 09:20:03
I/TELEMETRY( 5709): EVT_IGE_FREE_CREDITS_EARNED, EVT_KEYTYPE_SCORE = 1100, EVT_KEYTYPE_ENUMERATION = Finished Work
I/TELEMETRY( 5709): Can't send Log Event: EVT_IGE_FREE_CREDITS_EARNED
I/TELEMETRY( 5709): Date: 2013-09-19 Time: 09:20:03
I/TELEMETRY( 5709): EVT_IGE_FREE_CREDITS_EARNED, EVT_KEYTYPE_SCORE = 210, EVT_KEYTYPE_ENUMERATION = RandomBoost
I/TELEMETRY( 5709): Can't send Log Event: EVT_IGE_FREE_CREDITS_EARNED
I/TELEMETRY( 5709): Date: 2013-09-19 Time: 09:20:04
I/TELEMETRY( 5709): EVT_GP_XPGAIN_EVENT_EAL, EVT_KEYTYPE_SCORE = 1150, EVT_KEYTYPE_ENUMERATION = Finished Work
I/TELEMETRY( 5709): Can't send Log Event: EVT_GP_XPGAIN_EVENT_EAL
- And there is something about the audio that goes wrong:

Code: Select all

W/AudioTrack( 5709): releaseBuffer() track 0x652854f8 name=0x3 disabled, restarting
- And finally the game doesn't exit properly, it dies and leaves memory behind:

Code: Select all

I/EASPWrapper( 5709): shutdownJNI()...
I/EASPWrapper( 5709): ...shutdownJNI()
E/CC Assert( 5709): ../modules/common/Cloudcell/CloudcellApi/CC_Cloudcell_Class.h:155
I/AndroidRuntime( 5709): VM exiting with result code 0, cleanup skipped.
I/ActivityManager(  459): Process com.ea.games.simsfreeplay_row (pid 5709) has died.
Note the "died" at the end, it did not "exit" like a normal app would.

This was just a quick run through it, although there was certainly lag and slight freezing at which times nothing was logged.
The codes at the beginning of the line stand for: I = Info, W = Warning, E = Error!

Bad: The amount of people at work using the work WiFi to download OS7 is preventing me from going into neighbouring towns in freeplay

Oh yeah I shouldn't actually be checking this at work but there you go ;)

I paid life points to get my last two sims. Good thing hobbys give out Lp now.

Did they forget to remove or accidentally turn on the game trace option, cos even minor or less important events are being attempted to log...

It does look that way, which explains the temporary lag spike while collecting 10 patches of gardening. I also noticed that the FB app regularly claims to run out of memory in the logs (while there is enough available, so it's an allocation failure), even when not using SFP.

I've removed the FB app from one device to see if it has any impact on the performance of SFP, so far it looks like it solved one part of the problem.

I'm collecting more information and will dump it in FM's lap. Hopefully they'll do something with it.

Good: I finally got a TV increase with a house purchase. :)

Bad: relocated a pet when I moved his master, and he disappeared! :(

Weird: I tried to move over an elevator (happened to the 75LP one) to make room for a second one (the mid-priced s4,500,000 one), and had to temporarily put it in storage. When I tried to pull it out it was gone!!! :o It had changed into a second mid-priced one!! :o :o
