    Found a simple trick dealing with phenomena.
    When you manage to get the phenomena in the room you want, search it and wait for the popup that tells you what you found
    Instead of continuing back to the manor, close the app completely.tap home then double tap home to shut the app down
    When you return to the manor, the phenom will still be in that room for you to retry. Rinse and repeat until needed.

    Whoa.. Really? affraid
    Sounds good - though a little bit against the "game flow" - but hey where is that in waiting for WEEKS for a special phen to appear in a room. So - cool. Did you combine it with a turtle? I lost some charms in the last weeks by crashing, but shutting it down shouldn't do that to my turtle, no?

    I thought that the Corset / Neptune / Emerald does not show up as a normal drop item after you search the room, but only when you return to the main map screen does it tell you that you received the item. If this is the case, wouldn't it be too late since you returned to the map screen and the phenomenon is already gone?

    I just posted in another thread that this technique worked perfectly.
    Neptune does appear in the list of things found.
    Anyone searching for Neptune should read that thread!
    I got mist in bathroom after an hour of infinite energy searching and used the trick five times
    To get Neptune.

    Why would you think that? 'course it does. It appears as the other things in the popup window afterwards, I even tapped on the emerald then because I couln't believe it showed up.
    so.. GO! get that stupid Mist or whatsit in the bathroom, fire up a turtle and get yourself the Neptun! *shove* jocolor

    It's not a silly comment...none of those items showed up in the "found items" box that pops up when I completed them. Once I returned to my manor and the items fell on the screen is when I saw that the quest had been completed. Not sure I even ever saw them...

    Well... come to think of - I don't remember seeing either the corset nor the Neptun. But I do remember seeing the window popping up with the emerald symbol together with two others (like tooth fairy ir else). Because I know i tapped on it to be sure I wasn't halluzinating. cyclops After _weeks_ if not months of waiting for it, I might have been geek , but I don't think so.

    It may be something that changed with the update, so you never know! I doubt you were hallucinating Razz Good luck to all those still searching! I will try the phenomenon trick to get the achievements though!

    What exactly does it mean to "tap on the home button"? Is this the button on the iPad itself, and not a button within the game?

    Correct. The trick here is to see what items you got from searching the room, and if you didn't get the item you're looking for, go back to the iPad home screen, kill MM, and restart MM. When it restarts, the phenomenon will still be in the room, and you can try again. (At least, that's what I gather... I haven't had time to give it a shot yet)

    I've been hoping to try this but can't get the stupid idol to appear on the bedroom. I've started banishing it from other rooms in hope it would pop up faster in a different room but it doesn't seem to be helping...

    I don't know if this is something that changed with the last update, but the phenomena don't seem to be afraid of the dark anymore. Just left my african room in nightmode, switched to the lab, and after that an Ufo popped up in the african room. Don't know about other phenomena though.

    Another trick. Get the phenomena in the room. Before you explorer backup the documents folder using iFunBox. Close app first is best. Play room. If you fail. Exit app and copy back documents folder. Warning. You will loose any progress since the backup obviously. So don't collect gifts. Have fun

    You're right, I had the library and hallway in night mode and now mists are in both of them. They weren't afraid at all. Smile

    I have to test your theory. It sounds good. Just wanted to say that I have NEVER seen a phenomenon in any room that asks for items to get in. My geek relative tells me that it is probably a software impossibility. That is why you can't get the mist to go into the fortune telling room. It CAN'T. Find the Neptune in the bathroom in mist mode. That is what I've been told by many people who have found it by accident.

    I noticed that the phenomenons never appear in rooms that request items to enter. So, I wouldn't expect to see one in the Fortune Teller room.

    Now, If I need a phenomenon, I summon it many times until I get it to the requested room. Note that the game has a bug and sometimes you lose the diamonds and no phenomenon appears. Thanks the app developers, that they returned me the summoning items after a complain. They told me that they will correct it on the next update.

    Yes, it is known that the phenomena do not appear in rooms with entering-item requests, nor in Rooms with a curse in them - the latter being something even seasoned players stumbled on...
    Earlier on the didn't like the night mode either - after the last updates they appear also in those.
    I didn't know about the summoning bug Shocked - if that is indeed so (as GI reacted to it), you should put it in the bugs-section!

    Hi guys,

    new here!

    So it seems to work quite fine with the "don't explore curses room" and leave the phenomena in the rooms until it gets into the room you want.

    It leaves less room available for next phenom to appear in and also less rooms for you to explore. With as min as 1500 energy points spent I just managed to get 5 phenom. (took me that long to get it in the right room.

    By this experience I left out oceanic, sakura, room 51 and lab in my explorations...luck or not triggers were always in other rooms. (I had bedroom and library in witch curse so left these out as well).

    Enjoy!

    "EDIT" Just finished the room with mist...2 rooms later I got will o the wisp in...definately works fine and consumes less energy.

    In the current version, you don't have to do the extra rooms as you mentioned. I just explored, kept notes on iPad notes, bought the phenomena(muppets anyone?) for diamonds and did emerald and corset in an hour or so.

    Yop agreed,

    the only problem seem to arise when you fill all rooms with a phenomena...then it looks like you need to "reset all rooms" and start over.


    EDIT: For some reason it is not working anymore since last update Sad Damn should have done neptune while I was at it Sad

    Admin wrote:I believe my theory on Phenomenons (phenomena) is correct.

    Here is my observation:
    1. If I do the same room over and over and over, phenomenons do not appear.
    2. If I do different rooms, they randomly appear.

    Here is my theory:
    - of all the open rooms, one room is the 'phenomenon' trigger.
    - search this trigger room, and a phenomenon will appear in a random room.

    How I tested:
    - I have all 16 rooms open.
    - If I do African room 16 times, I do not get a phenomenon.
    - However, if I go through all the rooms, in order, I will eventually bring out a phenomenon before I go through the list of all rooms.
    - Each time I had a phenomenon, I cleared it by searching the room.
    - I then started going through the list of rooms again, in order starting with Living Room
    - Each time I did this, a phenomenon would appear before I cleared all the rooms.
    - I have tested this for 6 iterations, and receive a phenomenon each time.

    If this is true, this would also explain why we have more phenomenons at earlier levels - there are few rooms to search, and we search all of them. As we gain higher levels, we ignore the earlier rooms because they do not give good experience or items.


    Of course - now with over 30 phenomenons and STILL not a single one in the Fortune Teller Room, I think the Neptune quest hates me. Crying or Very sad


    Hi,
    So far what I've noticed is that, MIST Phenomenon comes only in room with night mode.
    Will-o-wisp is a rare one.
    As randomly as they might come, the phenomenon depends on each rooms SKILL LEVEL.
    UFO comes only in rooms with EXPERT level ( also in night mode i think). So, the rooms below that Skill lvl will not get it.
    Will o wisp comes after or around Professional skill lvl of a room.

    Have u noticed these?

    Well, I'm just 42 level and might not know much. Sometimes, when I want the phenomenon to come in the room that I desire, then I'll keep the cursed room open. I mean I don't play in the cursed rooms.

    I recently tried to play the living room over and over to summon a phenomena and I get quite often now. I use less energy than when doing the rooms in order.

    But it might be that is really just random.
