My Sunny Resort FAQ

My Sunny Resort
A quest requires the Cocktail Bar, but it costs Shells and I can't purchase any - what can I do?
The Cocktail Bar can also be acquired from card pieces, which you can receive from your free daily booster packs, or cards from visiting friends. Of course, you can also trade other players for Cocktail Bar pieces.

If you don't get the Cocktail Bar right away, don't worry. The story quests are not required to progress in the game, and you will keep getting other story quests when you level up, even if you haven't completed all of the previous ones. Guest wishes also change after a while, so you don't need to be worried about guests with unfulfillable wishes.
Do you have a forum or guides for the game?
We have a forum full of very helpful players here! If your account is an upjers account linked to the portal, you can simply use your username and password for your game to log in!
Help! My animals/buildings/decorations/plants disappeared!
If something is not where you are very sure it should be, chances are it's just invisible to you. This can be a result of faulty cached image files. Your Flash Player will often save some files to your computer to make loading quicker for you. But if these files get messed up, or aren't up-to-date, it can lead to missing items and error messages. To fix this problem, you should clear your Flash Player's cache.

To do that, go to the Adobe Flash Player's Settings Manager:

This'll bring up a little widget that lets you change the flash player settings (it may look like a picture, but it's interactive!)

To clear your cache: - Select the second tab (Global Storage Settings panel) - Remove the tick in the second box (the one right at the bottom "Store common Flash components...") - Confirm the change - Then tick the box again.

Then reload the page with the game and see if everything's there now!
How can I place the friendly dolphins in the water?
The dolphins are a bit tricky to place. The key is to make sure the rocks are exactly in the corners of the green rectangle:

How can I redeem my free code?
To celebrate the launch of My Sunny Resort, we rewarded players with free starter packs to help them get started in your own vacation paradise.


You can still redeem the code for these starter packs to receive:
  • 3,000 Hotel Dollars
  • a Gold Booster
  • a Sand Castle

To get yours, simply redeem this code in the game:

YOUR - FREE - CODE

To redeem in, just access the Shell Shop from the Bank in game.

Click on the Shell icon by your currency display or the dollar sign/credit card icon in your top menu bar, and then click the "Shell Shop" button. This will take you to our payment page. Scroll through the payment options on the left with the help of the little arrows until you get to the very bottom "upjers codes."

Clicking on it, will make some entry fields appear on the top right. Just enter your code, YOUR - FREE - CODE, into the boxes and hit "redeem." Log out and back into your game if you didn't receive it right away.
How do I send my friends gifts?
Unfortunately, you cannot really send your friends gifts in this game.

However, occasionally, you'll have to opportunity to choose a gift for yourself and your friends when you level up. And of course, you can always surprise your friends with some nice card pieces in trades (you can even offer them a trade for a random piece of theirs - so they don't even need to give you something valuable in return).
I bought Coins via PaysafeCard, but they haven't arrived yet.
If the debit wasn't successful, the amount of money is generally credited back to your code; therefore the money should still be on your card.

Please go to www.paysafecard.com

There you can check your credit and verify your turnovers.

Should the amount have been debited from your card, please state your PaysafeCard transaction ID as well as the date of your payment.

I can't find a specific player using the player search, and I can't send him messages or contracts.
All our game servers are entirely independent from each other. That is why it is unfortunately not possible, to transfer an account from one server to another, or trade and communicate between different servers.

You can only trade with players, if they are registered on the same server. If you would like to play on the same server as your friends and/or family or switch for different reasons, they need to register on your server, or you need to register on their server, and start from the beginning. Settings from one server cannot be transferred to another server. If you just want to talk to your friends while you are on-line, you can always do so via the forum as well!
I can't log into the forum.
Are you sure you're logging into the correct forums?

With the exception of Kapilands and Kapi Regnum, all of our Forums can now be found in the Portal. You can log in here with the same username and password you use for your games!
I didn't receive the activation mail with my login data.
Please check your spam and junk inbox. Maybe the activation e-mail is hiding there.

If you can't find the e-mail, please state your forum name and date and time of registration in your support request.

You will be sent a new activation e-mail.
I forgot on which server my account is registered.
If you saved your registration mail, this is no problem at all. Aside from your login data, it also contains the server info.

If you didn't save the registration mail, you can use the "Password forgotten?" function on every server. Along with the new password, you will be sent your server and the login data via e-mail. You can also try to log in on every server using the trial-and-error method until you have found your game server. Unfortunately, there is no other option.

If all that fails, you can still contact support to see if they might be able to help.

Keep in mind that in some of our older games, game accounts may be deleted after 180 days of inactivity.
I have transferred money via bank transfer in order to receive Coins. When will I get them?
Unfortunately we have no way of influencing the time the credit institutes take to process a transaction. This may take up to 3-5 working days, even if the money has been booked directly from your account, even longer in case of international transactions (our company seat is, as you may know, in Germany).

We generally credit all transfers the day they arrive on our account. Maybe your transactions is among today's arrivals. Should you have to wait longer than 10 working days until the Coins have been credited to your account, please check your entries, and contact us again, if you are certain you have used the correct data.

In this case please let us know the "reason for transfer" you have given in your bank transaction form, your User ID, the account holder's name and time/date of transaction.

I just redeemed card pieces, but the card I was promised isn't showing up in my card bar!
Some cards can only be used in certain resorts, and will only show in the card bar while you're in the correct resorts.

You can see if a card is only suited for a certain reward when you click on it in the shop, trading interface or inventory. You'll see an icon in the larger image that appears on the left.


  • Palm Tree - Beach Resort
  • Mountain - Mountain Resort
  • Giraffe - Safari Resort


You can always find all of your items in your inventory - the last tab in the shop:

I just started playing the game, but all the buttons are grayed out!
The game starts off with a tutorial, which is intended to to teach you the basics of the game. During the tutorial, the friendly adviser will tell you what you need to go - you'll see her speech bubbles and you can also click on her for more information. A helpful sun icon will guide you through where you need to click to follow the adviser's instructions.

This will go on for the first few levels, so that you don't make any mistakes that could get you stuck, but soon you will have the freedom to do anything you want!
I linked my game account to the Portal, but now I can't log in anymore!
Once you have connected an account to the Portal, you will need to use your Portal account information to log into your individual games, if you opt to log into them from their launch pages. Of course, you can easily log in via the "My Games" tab.

Some of our older games will require you to click a little portal button to use your Portal information to log in.
I wanted to buy Coins/Diamonds/Dosh/Gold Bars/Cocoa Beans via debit (Webbilling), but I could not understand the voice on the phone.
If you didn't enter a PIN, your money wasn't debited. You can simply begin the payment process over.
I will be offline for the next few days. Is there a vacation mode?
Ironically, there is no vacation mode in My Sunny Resort.

However, your resort will be just fine being left to its own devices - your guests will still be there waiting for you to get back!
I would like to delete my forum account.
Forum accounts are now directly tied into your Portal account; the two cannot be separated, and therefore, it's impossible to delete just your forum account.
I would like to delete my forum account.
The Forums are directly tied to the Portal; therefore, it isn't possible to delete just your forum account.
I would like to link an older game account to the Portal. How can I do that?
If you have a Portal account, any new game accounts you create will automatically be connected to the Portal. However, if you have an older account that isn't connected to the Portal yet, you can do that after the fact.

Just go to the "My Games" tab in the Portal.



You'll see a little "Link Existing Accounts" tab over the box with your games. Click on that.



Choose the game you would like to link an account from, and click on it. Enter your server and log-in information, and BAM, it's connected!

Please note: Sometimes difficulties arise if you have deleted Kapi Hospital/My Free Farm accounts and then try to link a new account. Contact support if this occurs!
I would like to transfer my account to another server.
You can of course register on another game server any time. Since our game servers are not connected, however, it is impossible to transfer accounts from one server to another. If you would like to play on another server, you need to register on that one separately.

You can close your current account or keep it, as you like. Coins, points and in-game money can unfortunately not be transferred.
Is the game good?
Yes, it's fantastic!
My account was reset to level 1! Where is my saved game?
Accounts do not get reset on their own. There are three reasons your account may appear reset:
  • You deleted your account via the Game Settings/Profile (this is pretty rare)
  • You are playing on the wrong server
    • A lot of our games have several game servers - make sure that you try all of them before you panic
  • You accidentally changed the language
      Make sure that you're playing the game in the right language. Our games do not switch languages - each language is hosted on a different server, and if you change the language, you'll begin playing a completely new account. Some of the more bilingual among us might not even notice. You can find the dropdown to change languages in the top right corner of the screen:

My forum account has been banned.
If you have violated the forum rules on various occasions, you have probably been warned by one of our forum moderators already, and are now banned.

Should you not have received a warning from a moderator, you may have been blocked immediately because you have extremely violated the forum rules.

The reason and the length of your ban will be displayed when you log in.

Should neither of those things apply, please state your forum name as well as your email address in your support request; we will then examine your case.
My menu buttons are gone/the screen is cut off!
You probably just accidentally adjusted your browser's zoom - if you have a scroll wheel on your mouse it can happen rather easily.

To make it go back to default, click somewhere on the background of the game page - anywhere on the background/border should do - and hit the "Ctrl" and "0" keys on your keyboard at the same time.

Or if key combos aren't your thing, check your zoom in your browser's settings menu. Most modern browsers have something to click in the top right corner (a gear, three parallel bars, etc.) that will open the menu. There should be a zoom indicator with buttons to adjust it. Just make sure it's set to 100% and you should be good to go
The game is running very slowly. Why? What can I do about it?
There are a couple of reasons why your game might be running slow:
  • Hardware issues. Most of our games are pretty big and require rather decent computers to run properly.
  • Internet connection issues. If you see a lot of little clocks and lag, a slow internet connection might be the cause.
  • Long online sessions. The Flash Player will tend to get backed up and begin to struggle if you are logged into a game for hours at a time.
  • Running several Flash or Unity Player games at the same time. Try to avoid doing this.
  • Server issues. They are rare, but they can occur.
  • A Flash cache with corrupted files.


Some of these might be out of your control (and out of ours, too). Some general tips for making the games run better:
  • Log out of the game and back in every once in a while, to make sure that the Flash Player can keep up.
  • Play with a good internet connection. Of course, being connected with the modem/router directly is best. If you're using wireless, be as close to the hotspot as you can. Surfsticks only provide mediocre internet connections in most cases.
  • If your computer is not the newest, try to close other programs and games you have running.
  • Clear your Flash Cache regularly. You don't have to overdo it, but it's a good idea after patches.
  • Zoom in within the game. You might see less, but there are less graphics to process, and the game will run a lot smoother.
  • Turn down your Game Settings - most games have a couple of options in the Advanced Settings.
  • Make sure that your browser is up to date.
  • Try using a different browser.
The playing field is black/white/blue/green!
Something is probably wrong with your Flash player - it might not be active at all, or you may be experiencing issues with some of the settings.

First off - take a close look at your playing field. If it says "To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.1.0 or greater is installed" or similar in the top left corner (it may blend in quite well) you either don't have a Flash Player, or you do not have it active.

Checking your Plug-Ins To see if you have a Flash Player and if it's active or not, follow the following steps:

  • Google Chrome

    Type "chrome://plugins/" (without quotation marks) into your url bar at the top of the screen and hit enter.

    You will see a list of your plug-ins in Chrome. Look for "Adobe Flash Player" or "Shockwave Flash Object" and make sure that it is enabled (if it is, you'll only see a "disable" link.


  • Firefox

    Click on the three parallel bars in the top right corner of your browser:

    Select the "Addons" button:



    Select the "Plugins" category on the right...



    ....and look for "Shockwave Flash."



    Select "Always Activate", or "Ask to Activate" (if you want to give it permission every time you need it) from the dropdown on the far right, and you're good to go!



  • Opera

    First off, you'll need to open your Opera Menu and select "Show Menu Bar":



    Once you have the menu bar at the top, select "View" > "Developer Tools" > "Plug-ins":



    Make sure that "Enable plug-ins" is checked at the top, and look for "Shockwave Flash"



    Make sure that it's enabled! If it isn't, click the "Enable" link, then close and restart the browser.


  • Internet Explorer

    Click the little gear icon in the top right corner.

    Select "Manage Addons...". A window will open that will allow you to look at your addons and extensions. Look for "Shockwave Flash Object" or "Adobe Flash Player" in the "Toolbars and Extensions" category.



    If it is disabled, click on the "Enable" button in the bottom right-hand corner of the window. Close the window and restart your browser.
The time display in the forum is incorrect after the switch of the daylight savings time.
Go to your "User Control Panel" in the forum and click on "Board preferences".

You can switch DST by ticking "Yes" or "No" respectively in the menu item "Summer Time/DST is in effect".
There are several players in our household, is there anything we need to look out for?
Please always follow this essential rule:

In order to ensure that all our players have the same chances within the game, all trades between players using the same internet connection (at home, at work, etc.) are expressly forbidden. We cannot make any exceptions here.

Of course it is always possible, that friends, colleagues and family members using the same internet connection are registered on the same server. In order to differentiate between these PC-user-communities and cheaters, it is unfortunately necessary that everyone sticks to this general rule.

If you do this, you can play on the same server without any problems. And let's face it, there really are plenty of other players that you can trade with as well.

Thanks a lot for your understanding and keep having fun playing!

What are landmarks good for and how do I use them?
What is a landmark?

A landmark is a special decoration that can only be placed outside of your actual resort area; for example, beach landmarks are placed in the water. Landmarks are usually pretty exciting decorations, for instance frolicking dolphins or a pirate ship!

Landmarks can be charged with Hotel Dollars, and then they will give you rewards at regular intervals for a certain time period.

How can I acquire a landmark?

Landmarks cannot be bought and are collected from card pieces. These, in turn, can be acquired from special NPCs or seasonal events in the game.

How do I use a landmark?

Landmarks always make great decorations, but they need to be charged to provide rewards. Clicking on the magic wand pin on a landmark will open a dialog where you'll have the option of charging the landmark for a certain amount of Hotel Dollars.



Once you have done this, the landmark will be active for a given period of time (dependent on the landmark), and you will be able to pick up a reward at regular intervals (also dependent on the landmark) by clicking on the Shell icon:



These rewards can be Hotel Dollars, experience points, or even Shells!
What does the taxi stand do?
The taxi stand lets you send guest groups to your own or your friends' resorts. You might want to do that because some of your resorts are tailored to certain types of groups (size or star class wise), or you simply don't have room somewhere but don't want to waste your guests. Of course, you can also just help out friends that need certain guests. You can set which types of guests you want to receive in the taxi stand settings.

The taxi stand doesn't produce anything, and doesn't require staff to run it. All it can do is transfer guests (1 group per slot per day).

You don't need a taxi stand in your other resorts to receive guests, but you do need a taxi stand in any resort from which you want to send guests.

In the beach resort, the taxi stand has a one-time cost of 81,000 HD. This will give you one transfer slot. Additional slots cost 40,500 HD, 81,000 HD, 121,500 HD, 200 Shells, and 203 Shells). Aside from these one-time costs, there are no additional costs for transferring guests. You don't get anything for transferring guests either. The taxi stands for the other resorts are a bit more expensive.
Why am I on the black list?
Being on the black list just means that you can't receive e-mails from us anymore (with the exception of support e-mails). Usually, you wind up on there because you unsubscribed from our newsletters or other mails, but you can also end up on our blacklist by marking or e-mails as spam or not being able to receive e-mails (for instance, if your inbox is over capacity).

If you would like to be removed from our blacklist, all you need to do is explicitly ask us to do so (something like "Please remove my e-mail address (xxx@xxx.com) from the black list.")
Why can't I log into my account?
There are a couple of reasons why you might have trouble logging into your account. Here are several possible solutions for your problem:

  • Are you sure that you have chosen the right server? You need to choose the server you registered on, if you want to log into the game. If you are unsure which server you are registered on, please check your registration confirmation mail. Please also note that our game is available in several languages. So please make sure that really have selected the US-American version, or that you indeed are registered on the US-American version.

  • If you are certain that you have chosen the correct URL and server, please verify that
    you have entered your login name and password correctly. There should be no unnecessary spaces. These may have been added accidentally, if you have copy/pasted the password.
    Also note that the password is case-sensitive. So please check that you haven't accidentally turned on your key lock.

  • In case forgot your password, please use the option "forgot password", and you'll automatically be sent a new one. Use that one, to connect to the game. You can later on change it in your in-game Profile. If you don't receive the email with your new password, please check your Spam-Folder.

  • Please also note that your login name may differ from your user name (depending on the game you are registered on). Your user name is the name that is displayed within the game, in order to connect to the game, you need to use the login-name.

  • We also run nightly backups some time between 2 and 5 am CET/CEST (Central European (Summer) Time). If you're experiencing issues at that time of day, it's likely they are just temporary. Try again a bit later!

If you are still unable to connect to the game, please contact us again, if possible, by giving us the exact error message you receive when trying to log in!
Why is my staff not unlocking more products?
To be able to produce more products at a shop or attraction, you will need to train your staff.

There are three different skills you can train:

Friendliness - increases income
Speed - increases production speed and decreases guest visit time
Qualifications - determine how much experience their work brings you and which products they can produce

To unlock new products, you need to spend your skill points in "Qualifications".
