How many of you are still buying GMB's now the glich has been removed??

Are you using the new GMB glich? The one where you work off line?

I use it...its a little more time consuming than the old glich, but once you get used to it is really easy congratulations

Not that I have time to do it much at the moment, do nt even get my visiting done very often Sad

What glitch?


you used to be able to refresh gifted MB's if you didn't like what was in it ..and keep doing it until you got what you wanted, but Playfish fixed it a while agol

There is still a way to do it, but it takes longer ...have a look here for instructions on how to do it

YES! thank goodness someone found a way around the glitch! seriously i thought i was going to have to quit.

it does take a little bit longer but like you guys mentioned, once you get the hang of it, it's no biggy.

i did notice a lot more junk back in there again. is that just me?

I think there is a lot more junk in there now...the ratio of 999's to rubbish is a lot lower now!

i never buy the boxes first. i always go offline then go to the store to purchase boxes. after i open it, if i don't want the item i refresh --while it's refreshing i put back to online so that PS never knows i bought the box.

i've noticed that if you buy the box prior to going offline, you are stuck with whatever item is in there.

I see...well, what if I already have one box prior to buying another one while offline?? Do you think that's the problem here??

i've noticed that if you already have a box it will be whatever PS has already assigned it. i even tried gifting it back and forth and it doesn't change the contents. when i do the boxes trick i usually use my other pet that doesn't have any boxes in his chest.

does anyone else have that same problem??

Okay!! I'll go try it out now...since I already have a few boxes in my inventory...I'll try clearing it out and doing the box trick and let you know...Smile

Edit: Success!! It really is that you can't already have the boxes in your inventory to be able to complete the trick...:p

I just tried the trick 15 times with a small RMB.
*I was looking for a space rug.*
No space rug all 15 times and
3 times I got doubles.
On average, how many tires until you get what you're looking for?

Dont forget if there is an item you cannot get out of the boxes you can check to see if there is one in Rosies swap shop that you can swap with

CLICK HERE FOR ROSIES SWAP SHOP

Or if it is a 999 item than you can ask for it in the 999 wish list

CLICK HERE FOR WISH LIST

make sure that the space rug is really in the RMB first. you can check on kogaweb via our home page. click on our home page up above, then scroll down to the bottom right corner where you will see the word "search".
you can search through there to see if that item exists in the RMB. that way you won't be wasting your time.

but like lea said, you can always go to the swap shop or put it on the wish list too! they are both great great!!!!

Thank you both for your help. I knew the space rug was in a RMB, but I like the idea of a list of things in the MBs. I will definitely check that out thank you. : )

Since 3 weeks at least I think, I gave up buying them, and about a month behind on the items Sad
Even sending the box to someone else didn't change the contents.

You're my lucky charm for boxes, if you can't do it, no one can congratulations

That's great!
Make sure to check the list of 999s too and stuff removed from boxes - we need to be up to speed and check what they're likely to remove.
Personally I didn't like that dodecahedron lantern and used some for payments last week, only to find they're gone now, so might rise in value (or then again, maybe no one likes them anyway congratulations)

ok it still works but only if you have zero boxes in your chest and you have to be offiline before purchasing your box.

click "offline" first
then purchase your box of choice
then open, if you don't like it then click refresh
while it's refreshing click "online" again.
don't click "online" until it starts refreshing or else you'll be stuck with the bad item.

good luck!!!!! when i just tried it, it gave me 3 stickers in a row!! whoop whoop!!!

I've been having decent luck with it I'll admit I don't do boxes as often cuz it's more time consuming and gets on my nerves lol. But I have gotten some good results, I need to do some more. I've gotten some of the cool newer items I've wanted and made some coins off ones I didn't I wanna buy that balcony so mama need extra $ congratulations lol.
