How To Fix Mafia Wars Request Errors

Share:

How to fix request errors. Today many are experiencing errors when trying to post a Mafia wars related request [1]. Team Spockholm has identified what is causing the issue and created a workaround. To use it add Feed Fix to your Spockholm Toolbar by clicking the link below then follow the instructions. For those curious about what has caused this issue, Brandon of Team Spockholm gave me the following explanation.  There is a parameter called "targetId" inside the code that  Mafia Wars sends to Facebook to generate requests. For quite awhile Zynga has just set it to "0".  Apparently Facebook changed something in the way it interprets this now, and that is what is giving the error. Feed Fix modifies the code and removes the "0" before it gets sent to FB. For questions and/or feedback, go here.

Once Feed Fix is added to your toolbar, type any part of Feed Fix into the search bar and click on it to launch. After that make your request and it will work as it did before. You will need to re-launch it if you refresh the game or open another tab.

  4. Thank you for trying but unfortunately it doesn't work all that well at all. You can't share anything, you can't request anything and only a few things here and there work. Those who have MWAddon pro are lucky enough that most things can be automated and MWA is not messed up so it posts just fine, but anything native to MW is pretty much broken, even with this fix.

  5. Sorry, it worked. I didn't realize that you say "You will need to re-launch it if you refresh the game or open another tab."

  8. Endlessly Awesome. You guys are the best. If it was not for spockholm and the helper apps outside of ZYNGAs and FACEBOOKs bailiwick, I would have given up a long time ago. Simply put, spockholm keeps this game workable and I cant thank you enough. You Rock.
    Thank you

  10. Read the instructions twice and it didn't work for me. I got the message "fixed it", and opened a new tab but same error message. I'm glad it helped a few.

    1. You may have read the instructions but you didn't follow them. If you open a new tab you need to relaunch the script. It only works on the tab you launch it in.

  12. the best way to fix any errors in mafia wars is to simply delete and block the game, its gone from bad to worse in recent months/years. total waste of time.

    1. To get it to work in IE,
      Launch IE,
      Download, Chrome, ff, iron
      run your new browser. IE just is not smart enough for scripts.

  18. I just tried to download and Norton blocked it saying it was infected with 2 virus,suspicious and cloud.9. Can someone clean the download up please? Thanks!

  19. it works but you have to run it on every tab and reload after you refresh or return from the arena after fighting manually

    ReplyDelete
  20. it works but you have to reload it after page refresh and on each tab. If this doesn't work for you it could be something in you anti virus or firewall settings. I don't know this but I had to mess with mine to get demon to run on chrome
