Want a faster CityVille? Then it's time to let Zynga store some data
Or not, if you're the paranoid type (like me). A new loading screen has appeared in CityVille, and it's Zynga asking players to let it store some information on their computers to help the game load faster. If this sounds familiar, that's because it is. Zynga has introduced this option to two of its other popular games that you may have heard of: FarmVille and FrontierVille.
While the option is rolling out slowly to players, your loading screen will soon appear with a button in the upper right hand corner that reads,"Want to Load Faster? Press Here." This opens up the Flash Player settings, and asks if you would like to allow Zynga to save some user data on your computer, which is said to in turn help your CityVille load much faster.
However, if you had issues (not technical, ethical) with the option when it was offered in Zynga's other games, then you're probably not going to gel with this either. However, Zynga played it smart this time around and has offered a full guide and FAQ on not only how to install the speed boost, but how to remove it in the event that you don't dig it.
Zynga also brings up an interesting point here: If you've allowed Zynga this access through FarmVille, then you're already experiencing faster load times in CityVille. That's because each game is using the exact same domain name, "zcache.zgncdn.com." I would imagine that all Zynga games use this domain, meaning that if you allowed it through one game, then all Zynga games could load much faster for you. That is, of course, if you're cool with it.
