    You'll need a device that is supported, either an Android or iOS one. In game, you'll have the option to use your Facebook credentials to login.

    Many websites and games use Facebook Connect to login to their services. In addition to convenience, they offer cross-platform compatibility.

      Yes, and CG has stated this often for the sake of covering any potential liability. That being said, many of us use them and they work just fine. Emulators run android just like a "supported" device and if the choice is between taking the tiny risk that your account could have a problem that won't be fix and not playing at all, well then that's not really much of a choice in my opinion.

        I'm not too happy about emulators being regarded like this. You WILL play in an Android platform, regardless of being in device or in an emulated environment, your FB account and Google account (the primary way of getting gems in this platform, much like Android devices would) would still be as legitimate as any other Google accounts. What WONT be supported, hopefully I'm right, is how players would interact with the game or any other circumstances brought in by playing in an emulator. I guess only CG can specifically can tell is what aspects are going to be supported, but I'm highly sure that players will still be supported game-wise. A lot of gaming companies have and should state that they do not support emulators as they are third-party players, they have to.

        My point is, if you're not going to play in an emulator, don't discourage people possibly trying to get back into the game via PC.

        ​EDIT: Kidnova thanks, you're on point on that one.

          Actually it works very well through Safari on the mac. That is one of the main ways I play. I have a mac sat on my desk at work pretty much specifically so that I can play HoDA every 2.5 hours and not lose my nats

                Considering I have not been able to play HODA on the browsers for quite a few months now due to unity errors confirms that their are issues but I wasn't expecting a total disband of it all. But as I have put far too much time and effort into it, I would find it wasteful to just simply wipe my hands of a branch that is part of the Thedosian world which I have loved so much over the years (I've tried the 4" screen and it's just too damn small). So I've been considering installing an emulator like nox but am unsure how to make sure it will connect with my facebook account. I would appreciate any help!

                  Sorry it's taking too long for me to make it! For a quick answer, log in to your FB account with the available FB Lite app or download the main FB app instead and log in from that. Then in the game, go to settings and connect to FB just as you would do with the mobile version. And yes, it's a shame if you quit Hoda just because of this!

                      Which emulator do you recommend? as I've tried nox with the facebook lite app and it continually says it's stopped working.

                        Currently using MemuPlayer, hope it works as mine does.

                          I sometimes use Nox, it isn't working for you, you can try Blue Stacks, it is also a great emulator.

                            I use Memu as well. It does tend to bog down when I'm doing a bunch of consuming, but that usually requires a restart and it's fine again.

                            All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                            Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted.


                            Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games and a report to Facebook.


                            What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                            It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                            To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                            What happens if I break the rules?
                            At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                            Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                            For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                            Posting Suggestions
                            In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                            1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                            Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                            2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                            3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                            4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                            5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                            6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                            7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                            In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
