Ok so, on Summer 9th of my first year, around afternoon, I gave Lauren a gift when she was on top of the hill. Then the game froze and the ground turned black. I reset the game, and went about the day AGAIN as normally, and then at 12:02 PM it froze randomly again as I was running. I reset once more, then let the game run until then to see if it didn't just freeze at that time; I didn't have any freezing this time, but I decided to do nothing but the basics this day (feed animals, water crops) and go to bed, just in case it was the day itself that was the problem.
I haven't played Summer 10th yet, as I'm worried it'll freeze again. Anybody else have this problem? Does it come and go, or is it constant and make the game unplayable? I see a lot of people talking about it freezing in Winter, but never Summer. And I don't think I can swap out my copy for a non-glitched one, so. :/
