Technical Issues and Game Bugs

I can't solve this puzzle/find this hidden object! Can you help me?
You can check the FAQ if there is something you are doing wrong or read through the walkthroughs and guides posted on this thread. If you can't find an answer, you can always post it in the forum so the moderators and other players can help you.

I think I have a bug/glitch in my game. How do I report it?
To report a bug, you can post on the forum or contact a moderator. Remember to explain the problem in detail. In some cases, Boomzap will request for your username, player code and save files. You can also check other threads to see if the bug has already been reported.

Where can I find my save files?
For Vista and Windows 7 users, the files can be found at C:\Users\<Your Computer Name>\AppData\Roaming\Boomzap\Awakening Kingdoms. If you are using Windows 8, just type "%appdata%" in the search bar to go to the Roaming folder. The AppData folder is hidden and if you're unable to find it, just modify the settings for showing hidden files and folders. The game folder contains .rms and .log files. You can zip this entire folder and email it to us for checking.

The moderators said they already fixed the glitch, but I still see it!
Bug fixes are installed during game updates. Make sure you are using the latest version of the game.
