Hi guys,

Ive started the game and for the time its allowed me to play ive had a fun time ... unfortunately every time i build a canteen around 1 minute later it freeze crashes and kicks me back to home dashboard without fail ! This is very frustrating and has made the game unplayable for me ... any ideas before i just call it quits and uninstall ?

Yeah same with me every time I zone a canteen.

Game-breaking for what appears to have the potential to have been a very fun game.

I'm not wasting any more of my time with this, luckily I actually tried it before I purchased the extra maps etc.

Very disappointed, which is a shame because I would happily have paid the £20 to upgrade the free version if it actually worked.

I'm having same problem.
Sorry this isn't a solution.
I'm just saying that it's not just you. It's happening to me, too. I was glad to read this because I hadn't figured out that it was the canteen that was triggering it. But, sure enough, that's gotta be it. I abonded the first build and started a new one. I got to the canteen at different times on each build. But it was definitely when I tried to get the canteen going that it crashed on both builds.
Bummer deal. Hope they they put an update patch out soon.

This happens to me too. It actually didn’t crash before today. Thought I’d let you know bits not just you still.

I believe I may have discovered the cause and cure.

I don't think it's the canteen per se, I believe it's the serving tables. More specifically, I believe it's caused by the automatic purchase of food trays.

Basically, I really wanted to play the game so I experimented as much as I could to crash it. What I think I've discovered is as follows:

- Don't place any serving tables or benches before zoning the canteen.
- After zoning the canteen, place tables and serving tables individually, at normal speed, one at a time. Ensure they have been installed by the workmen before placing the next one.
- Repeat this technique with all canteens.

Yes, it's a ball ache. But I swear I could not crash the game doing this. I've been playing for the last few days building 3 or 4 different prisons and I cannot crash the game anymore using this technique. Yet if I place all my tables and serving tables, then zone the canteen, the moment the food trays are ordered for all the tables and serving tables, the game crashes.

I'm sure this is working!

I can actually play without the "crashing fear".

Would be interested if anyone else tries this and it works for them.
