Singnet users cannot play restaurant city

My wife loves to play the Restaurant City and she was frustrated as she was unable to login to her favourite Facebook Game. Server problems and login issues has always been the problem with Restaurant City and we have learn to live with it since Playfish is not able to resolve the problem. But this time she was unable to login for 2 days and it look strange. The game will just be initializing forever and will not load the Restaurant City Game.

  1. great! it works totally!! you guys are genius..how did you find out? stupid singnet apply settings without informing clients…BOO!

  2. Many other Singnet Users have this problem also as I found out in the Playfish forums. This solution was from fellow singnet users. I hope to share and benefit all Singnet Users in Singapore playing Restaurant City.

  3. hey thanks, i did this and was able to play for awhile and when my wireless@sg got disconnected and after reconnecting, i get this message
    “Safari can’t open the page “http://apps.facebook.com/restaurantcity/?pf_ref=sb&ref=bookmarks” because Safari can’t connect to the web proxy server (HTTP). To change your proxy settings, open Safari Preferences, click Advanced, and then click Change Settings. For help with this problem, contact your system administrator.”
    and my entire safari was unable to load anything.

  4. This solution was meant for Singnet Personal Customers. If u are using wireless@sg, there is no guarantee as u may not be using singnet network but other telcos network also.
    U need to disable the web proxy and everything should be OK.
