    On the advice of wiki user "Downtochill", I hooked up my Android to my laptop with a USB cable and went hunting for a root directory related to the game.  Unfortunately, it wasn't as simple as finding a GAME directory.  No, nothing ever is.  I did find a frequently accessed directory with a very odd name:


    Digging down into the folders I found several groups of Mobage and My Monster Rancher assets including player profile icons, Mobage coin icons, screen graphics, and so on.  I concluded that ".ngmoco" was somehow meaningful to the Mobage people even though it meant nothing to me, so I deleted that directory.  Then I restarted my phone and re-installed My Monster Rancher.  There were a couple of weird messages about switching to wifi …

    Mobage support finally got around to writing me back.  Their suggestions were pretty standard stuff:


    First, I'd like you to restart your device. Simply turn the phone completely off, leave it off for 30 seconds, and then turn it back on.

    If this doesn't help, I'd like you to try initiating a Force Stop. It generally helps, and won't cause any harm to your device or progress.

    So now I find myself wondering if there is something wrong with my phone or if this is a widespread problem, or worse yet, if maybe the game has been cancelled and there has been no notification sent to anyone.  It's all very odd and I am not sure what to think.

    The one thing I have not tried is removing and re-installing th…

    I don't normally spend time contributing to Wiki-style databases, so I probably won't be much help around here.  However, as time goes on I'll make it a point to add details here and there as I can.  I guess I'd rather play the game than write about it!
