When I posted earlier today about the Pet Society cooking problem regarding the mushroom stool, I was reminded that a commenter named Chef had asked me to post about the “Cheesy Mayor glitch” moths ago. Sorry it’s taken me so long to post!
Since Momo is only an “apprentice chef,” she has never experienced this glitch, but players who have reached the “A List Celebrity Chef” rank are experiencing huge problems cooking. The “A List Celebrity Chef” level unlocks the recipe to cook the Cheesy Mayor. Once players unlock this level, they get a “save failed” 3008 error when cooking any dish, so their kitchens are completely paralyzed. Pets who reach this level can’t cook the Cheesy Mayor, or anything else for that matter.
There are two long discussions of this problem on the Playfish forum here and here. According to the posts in these topics, the problem was reported to Playfish in April, but it still hasn’t been fixed. Chef wanted me to warn everyone that we shouldn’t be in hurry to cook the Cheesy Mayor in Pet Society because you won’t be able to enjoy cooking until the problem is fixed. I feel sad for all the pets out there who love cooking and who’ve been receiving this error for months. Come on Playfish, get this problem fixed so the Pet Chefs can have fun cooking again!
