iCloud Sync Failure

Postby LJSurfa » Fri Dec 12, 2014 11:13 pm

Does anyone know why my games are not syncing over devices. All the settings seem fine on both devices but if I play on my iPhone it doesn't sync to the iPad and via versa.

It's really annoying because I have to play each level twice.

None of the games sync. Little War 1&2 and BIG war.

Any suggestions to help as I am going to lose interest if I can't find a fix.

Thanks.

Forgot to say. It's an iphone 4 on iOS 7 and an iPad with retina (4) on iOS 8. Different systems shouldn't matter though I don't think.

NO WAY! I just read that ios7 and 8 don't sync. This can't be right though as my words with friends still works. Any knowledge. Ta.

Ah, that might well be it. I didn't know that myself.

A few games, probably including wwf, use a custom feature that sits above cloud sync which is more like central server for the save states. The API for that can't handle some of the complexities needed for our war games though - we've already looked into using it and had to rule it out.

(Think what happens if you do one thing on one machine and a different thing on the other and press sync - something's going bang)
