Question on jpg files
Fist up, I am admitting being stupid. Do the standard SS avatars have jpg files? OR Is it only personal avatars that have jpg files? I had a look at my game files in thumbnail mode and can't tell. What I'm trying to achieve: ALL my friends bar one, have SS avatars. I want to delete my jpg friend file as I can't find the person crashing my box. I know what the persons avatar looks like but can't see it in thumbnail mode. This is hard to explain so I'll leave it at that and feel free to cross examine me.

The standard avatars are not stored in the same place on your device as the the FB avatars. They are in the game files not the Social files. You are seeing a lot of jpeg files, as they are stored permanently on your device, even after the friend changes to SS avatar or if you are no longer friends. Delete away. But do make a back up of the folder before you start just in case you accidentally delete a important file in that folder (like player.prf) by accident. And remember, if any of your friends are using a facebook avatar that you have already fixed, then it will be re-downloaded faulty again when you reconnect to the servers and you may have to fix it again. By any chance are you looking at the game files on a mac computer Dee?

Also, you might be able to identify you exact friend by going into the Social_Hog folder and opening log.txt in textedit/notepad - scroll down to the bottom and see if there is a recent crash report it might look something like this:
"10:38:52: FILE NOT FOUND: /var/mobile/Applications/2B79C167-A467-4F10-91A2-2CEB4C23CE9C/Library/Caches/Mytona/Social_HOG/suid_(letters+numbers)"
The suid_ followed by a list of about numbers and letters is your friends unique game ID (i just removed the digits above to protect my own friends identity). You can see which friend the suid belongs to in either the gifts_list.xml in the Tavern updates new social folder (it is in a few other places, but that would be quickest as presumably you have a gift from your friend).

Thanks for that Argh. I thought the SS avatars would be in another file so this really helps. Much appreciated once again.
