  5. it works! thanks so much!

  6. It worked for me only 1st time, but i set only 100 coins, so i wanted to do it again. When i edit the file and start the game, It was everytime downloading original save_default file…but, than i figured it out. So u have to start the game, let it to download original files, minimalize, edit the file save_default by instructions above, tap PLAY, the game will load, minimalize again(u have to wait, when the game is 100% loaded), and edit file to original values…now just go into the game, and u have it 😉

  7. ok. u through me off when it said dont open the app. on my fone, after it is installed you have to click the icon on the apps menu and then when you open it you will be asked if you want is saved to ur sd card. this may help people that cant figure out how to change where it is saved to. Thanks a lot for the info!

  8. Great. It works like a charm. Thanks for the tip. Got 999999 acorns and 999999 coins.

  9. It works, but I have to end up starting it all over again everytime I close the app. Sad =(

  10. If I uninstall my game, and wipe everything, am I going to lose evrything I have achieved so far? I have over 200,000 coins earned and level 23.

  11. Have tried multiple times, followed directions completely. But it resets the original values everytime I start the game. Plz help.

  12. do we know if this still works? I’ve been trying all day long.. i noticed that after i changed the currency its saves as a .docx doc and I have to change to .dat (the original file type) and when I press resume I not get extra currency. When I go back and check the file its been overwritten by the original 2000 acorns and 10 coins.. am I doing something wrong?

  13. I have same problem getted whin I resume It’s returned to original value

    will this work on acer a500? 🙂

  16. Do i have to restart over or how can.i apply this to current.game.progress….???

  17. This worked fine a month or so ago, but then with the update, it crashed the game and it wouldnt let me update the game or play it. Error message was wrong size on server. New phone as of today, got it installed, changed the values and now when the game loads for the first time, it crashes completely and can’t play at all.

  19. Thanks

  20. good job.. my money is too manyyyy..thankz..

  21. It worked! A bit tricky especially the last part of the download.

  22. I was originally registered with their facebook app, and that info is saved on their database. This is why some of you might find it reset back to what your original village might look like with same amount of coins/acorns you had before leaving the app.

    I don’t mind starting over on my main FB account, but it seems this wont be happening. 🙁

  23. After the December update it doesn’t work.. No file called save_default exists anymore!! I think the developers got wise..

  24. It didn’t work 4 me. The app only added 147 chips, and when I went back on Astro Files Manager to check to see if I saved it, it was saved, so I went back on Bug Village and it took away the 147 coins that were added on before. ?????

  25. I tried to follow the steps exactly, but couldn’t find the save_default file. There are only a few files in the bug village folder, and most have “.big” extension. Any ideas?

    I installed ASTRO File Manager and also installed Bug Village. But when open Android —> Data—>File and don’t see file Bug Village to open. And don’t see “save _default” too.
    Maybe i wrong my step, help me please.

  28. Can anyone help us, we have tried doing your instructions for getting coins and acorns. Everything works until we get into files and need to hold the default_file. There is no default file. We have looked through everything in the file and there is no fields to change. If anyone can help as I really would like my daughter to have fun with this game but I am not willing to buy coins all the time.
    Thank you so much!

    I don’t think you will no longer be able to do this. Glu got wise and as of there last update they changed it. There is no save-daefault anymore. and I don’t think I want to keep trying if people say they are getting it and from the last patch the game keeps crashing. CRASHING=NOGOOD. remember this is just my opinion all do as they wish. HAVE A NICE DAY
