Castleville: Zynga Suport-Problems of items Inventory/Quests

Are you one of the players that items are not been added to your inventory or not been considered to complete the quest?

Another problem several people where asking as to do with items in the Quest Inn. Below there is the answer for the Pieces of Map. You are collecting them but they don't count for the quest or simply they are not been added to your inventory. Thanks to all that reported this problem before.

In this case, Zynga says that they will fix it in 72 hours.

If you are having troubles, go to the support page, check if your problem is there and click "Please Fix IT" in order to increase its priority in fixing it. No matter what, your game problems should be reported to Zynga. Only confirm before that you can't solve it and what is the information you should send to Zynga. A good way of doing this is posting your problem in the Facebook Page or Group. There is always another player able to help you.

Another problem several people where asking as to do with items in the Quest Inn. Below there is the answer for the Pieces of Map:

Default Players unable to complete Royal Inn Quest 11 of 13 due to Item Cap

Last Update: 1/29/2011

Description:
Since 1/27, players have reported not being able to complete Royal Inn Quest 11/13 because they had 3 or more Pieces of Map before beginning the Quest.

Castleville: Zynga Support-Trouble with accepting energy gifts?


Since Zynga patched the 10 energy links, some problems have been around Energy, or by gifts from friends or requests or getting the energy in the inventory.

For those who are wondering why they are not getting energy from links, sometimes it has to do with this problem, so it is a game problem and it doesn't have anything to do with the links. Read here as links are the same as wall posts or requests to friends.

3+ Energy Links
27 January 2012

First of all, these links are working. I have been testing myself and I just did it in the FB group. Below there is a list of Energy links each with 3+ Energy.These links have a Limit - per person (5 per person by day), per clicks in the link, per inventory. Fifty people can get rewards from each link. Check in your INVENTORY before collecting, if you are not in the limit and after collecting, check there also if the 3+ energy was successfully added.

In case of the message "limit collection" or error, please try back later. If you have the message "all claimed" it is because the limit was reached. By time these links also expired! Good Luck and enjoy!!!!

Castleville: How can I move George?

Hey George!!! Go your way and move your fat butt from here!!!
 Zynga solved it. Now George moves around his mine.

"My George is flattening Yvette against one of the guard towers. Which wouldn't be too bad if he was smooching her, but 'No' he has his big fat ugly butt right in her face........... poor girl " (Zynga's Forum)

What this big fat George can do... Well we were feeding him with big pieces of meat. Please!!! Don't feed him... He is already BIG lol

Sorry!!! No one come up with a way of moving him. Lots of trying with the Viking Mine, but George doesn't move or it moves and it returns. Only Zynga can solve this.

Castleville: Character Biography for Tom: The Retired Knight

Character Biography for Tom: The Retired Knight
Background
Tom was the mightiest knight in the realm. Known for his bravery and strength, Tom was responsible for peacefully resolving the Great Dragon Migration of ’32. Tom also put an end to “Goblin Week”, though some of those stains still won’t come out.  No matter the problem, Tom was the Knight-On-Demand. He’d rush into the fray with his customary battle cry, “For honor! For glory! For cupcakes!”


Meet Tom! Background (continued)

Castleville: Character Biography for Quinn: The Lyrical Bard

Character Biography for Quinn:
The Lyrical Bard
Meet Quinn!
Background
Quinn is a traveling Bard, poet and singer. After 5 minutes with him, you are smiling and comfortable, listening intently to his latest ballad of adventure and romance. When he sings, maidens swoon and men are moved to manly tears.

As with any great teller of tales, Quinn enjoys the drink. Sadly, this occasionally causes a forgotten lyric or three. In these situations, Quinn relies on his natural charm, tossing out random words or asking the audience for suggestions, often with amusing results.

With his surplus of wit and talent, it was only a matter of time before Quinn rose to fame, receiving an exclusive performance contract in a high-class Kingdom far away. It was there that he fell in love and became engaged. Just as it seemed that all his dreams were coming true, tragedy struck. While he was on tour performing for his fans, the Gloom engulfed the Kingdom, shrouding his home and his fiancée in its depths.

Quinn’s attempts to rescue his love have, so far, proved unsuccessful. Now he travels the lands, skirting the Gloom and Beasties, spreading news and information – anything he can do to aid the fight against the Dark One and eventually reunite withhis beloved.

Castleville: Character Biography for Sylphie: The Flighty Fairy

Character Biography for Sylphie: The Flighty Fairy

Background

Sylphie (or Syl to her friends) is a flighty forest Fairy with a love for adventure…

Meet Sylpie!
Back in olden times, the Fairy Queen and the rulers of the realm formed an alliance to fight the first instances of Gloom. The Fairy folk, so vulnerable to Beastie attacks, took refuge in the remaining Kingdoms and used their magic to grow Gloom-dispelling Exploration Crystals.

When the Gloom receded, the Fairies returned to their nests in the forest. As a gesture of goodwill, they did leave one Fairy behind in each Kingdom to serve as an ambassador. The practice continues to this day. As a new ruler, you’ve just been appointed your own ambassador – Sylphie!

She’s fluttering her way to your Kingdom now, ready to help your fight against the Gloom. Just don’t underestimate her because of her size! Sylphie may be small in stature (even by pixie standards), but she’s ready for big adventures. At last, she’s leaving the nest for a life of excitement, fun, and danger!

…DANGER? Bring it on. When it comes to Sylphie, all that flitters is bold!

Castleville: Character Biography for Sonja: The Gold Digger

Character Biography for Sonja: The Gold Digger
Background
Sonja is a sexy, cutlass-wielding pirate with a thirst for grog and a penchant for pilfering other people’s booty. As captain of the Santa Lucia, she sailed the seas with her crew of miscreants, finding fortune and adventure in every port.

Castleville: How to Get Berries, Grog's Belch and Grubs

 How to Get Berries and Grog's Belch



Berries and Grogs' Belch drop from clearing grass, or tending cattail, small fern, roots and  mushrooms. So, if you need them, go on and click those in your neighbors. You will get these items and without spending energy.




How to Get Grubs



Grubs drops when you clear dead logs. If you don't have any, you can buy one from the market, by 250 coins. Be aware that if you don't have your limit of beasties, you can also have a wolf poping up when clearing this item, as all other forest items. If you are having problems to get them, try to clear dead logs in your kingdom and with beasties not maxed out.

The Gloomed Area for this quest is spotted easy due to the Ice Tornado near a Castle. Also this quest line is going to introduce a new character - the villain Hazel, owner of the Castle.

Glitch: Build more than 1 Laboratory






You would think that this glitch would be applied to other crafting buildings, but I tried with the workshop and it doesn't workSo, let's build more than 1 laboratory: 

Castleville: Gloomed Areas Part 2

Before the new quest line "Save George" Castleville Map looked aas the screen shot below. Somethings were changed (place of the portal) and the requirements new the bridge were change, also.


Zynga can change other areas. Maybe because so many people requested more Gloomed Areas should be unlocked quicker and lower levels.

What will come next? What are still there in the gloom? When is Zynga letting us using the Magic Portal?

Castleville Free Items 35 Golden Bricks plus 3 alchemist Powder

These items have limits: how many people click and on time. Grab them as fast as you can before they are expired or empty. Good luck!!!

Probably each person only can get 5 of each item per day.


About the clicks in Golden Bricks (same for Alchemist Powder):


Each person can get 5 golden bricks per day. Each link can be clicked by 50 persons, after that 1 person gets the consolation reward in coins and then all other people get "All Rewards Claimed". So, if you got this message it means 51 persons clicked there.


Note: We will keep updating everyday, so keep attention!

Castleville: Free Items 10 and 3 Energy Patched!!!! Gone!!!

Some of you started with problems to get the energy links some hours ago. I have bad news. Today (17 January 2012)  is the day that Zynga patched the 10 Energy and 3 Energy links. We have left 1 Energy Link.

This is what happens now when you click a 10 Energy Link:

Blank!!!!

blank screen

These energies were  removed from the feed.  At least we still have 1 Energy link!!!
Goodbye Mr. 10 energy Link!! Goodbye  Mr. 3 Energy Link


And what will be next? It doesn't make sense to remove the gold brick, iron pick, alchemist powder, iron ore, and many others more...  So, we still have other reward links.
