How to Fix Farmville Out of Sync Errors

How can you fix Farmville “Out of Sync” errors which force you to refresh and lose unsaved Farmville game data which in turn makes you redo all the moves again. Farmville is one of the most popular games on Facebook and we are also Farmville addicts bugged by the Out of Sync errors often.


Farmville “Out of Sync”

Here are some common causes which ‘may’ cause these Out of Sync errors and here are some ‘possible ways’ to fix and avoid these “Out of Sync” Errors.

1. Dont Open Farmville in Multiple Tabs / Windows – As the game progresses, we tend to open multiple Farmville in multiple tabs and windows which causes the game to get out of sync in one of these tabs if it fails to refresh and keep track with changes in the other tab. So keep only one window or tab open and this will be avoided. This is more prone to occur with Farmville players with extra large farms with hundreds of animals, trees and crops which requires more syncing by the Farmville servers. You can also play on and not necessarily on the Farmville Facebook app, so keep either one of them open only.

2. Use fast broadband internet connection –  Farmville involves lot of data transfer, and if your connection keeps dropping packets, is slow and unable to sync fast enough with their servers as you hurriedly plant crops, you will get the out of sync errors. Try to fix your DNS to Google public DNS or Open DNS for better results.

3. Clear browser cache – Sometimes your inefficient browser cache can confuse Farmville with an outdated cache copy and cause out of sync errors. If refreshing / reloading Farmville does not work, delete your cache, restart your browser and you should be fine.

4. Update your Flash Player – Many times your browser flash player is outdated and unable to cope with the Farmville server refreshes and its latest version. You can visit the Adobe site, and download latest Flash player for your browser and enjoy Farmville.

5. Farmville is Beta – have you noticed the big “beta”  beside the Farmville logo, well it is meant to signify that Farmville acknowledges that there still might be bugs and they are considering feedback of users to improve the game.

These are some common causes we believe may be causing the Out of Sync errors, they may or may not work for you but definitely worth a try.

        same thing here Zynga sent me goodsync and said it had detailed info to fix the problem ….boy was that a joke. I have had several people who actually know a thing or two about computers try to make the goodsync program work with no luck if you find something please let me know.

        On the day the stables came out, I saw that I had the option to send a carnival float to my friends using 20,000 coin. Normally, you can only use the “send” feature by using farmville $. I thought, “this is really neat” so I decided to send my granddaughter and another young boy who both love Farmville the floats. Their farms went out of sync immediately and neither of them have been able to stay on their farms for more than about 30 seconds because it goes out of sync. I have sent a jillion emails to Zynga support explaining in detail that I believe the option to send the float using coin was a glitch and caused their farms to go out of sync. When my sister asked me how I was able to do it, I went back to my farm and the option to use coin to send the gift was no longer available to me in the market. I know the option was available on more farms than mine because Farmville Freak published the page showing the option to use coin to send a few of the items in the market. Unfortunately, on the same day, I had also put 99 Farmville $ in my granddaughter’s account and also sent her the pink pony using Farmville $. She hasn’t been able to enjoy any of it.

      Have all of you complained to zynga? I have they need to know.

      I have been looking all over the place on behalf of my mother for the answer to the “Out of Sync” mystery. She has not been able to log into her farm for about two weeks now. I have been looking for answers for her and I have even logged in under her name to see if the problem is with her internet/computer/whatever. I live in another city with a different make of computer and a different internet provider so I can safely say it is not computer/internet. I also play Farmville and I log in and play with no problem so it is specific to her account. I have told her that she is not alone and I told her about the 877 pages of complaints in the forums for Farmville but she still is so disappointed.

    • Karen O'Brien says:

      was accidently blocked.would like to get back in hope someone can help me,tried everything.

      • 2010 Costume says:

        Karen, someone responded above telling you how to do it. Basically, you access your privacy options and allow Farmville back. Hope this helps and you’re off farming soon…

    For the past few days I have been getting “Out of Sync” errors when ever I go into farmville on Facebook. My wife was able to do this on her account. Every time I go into farmville it gives me this error so I have not been able to do anything. I did a few times but what I did was erased because this dialog came up and when the page was refreshed everything was lost and reset to how it was. I am not sure what to do about my account.
