Backup to iCloud???

BHDBHD Junior MemberRegistered Users 74 Posts
I've just had Contract Killer 2 ask if I wanted to Backup to iCloud.....

I said yes....

Has there been a program change and Is this really backing up progress?

If so... well Done!

If not, please dispel the myth ASAP lest people have a false sense of security.

Assuming it is backing up to iCloud, how does one trigger a restore?

R.S.V.P. ASAP

    OK Well that answers my question, sort of....

    If you saved to iCloud & Restored then it does work.... Although that's little consolation to you.

    Glu's normal response to back-up questions, loss of progress etc. is to recommend a full device backup via iTunes.

    It does leave the part of my question about how to trigger a restore unanswered....

    BTW... If you did back-up to PC since the iCloud backup you could restore that.

    Of course, if the game had a built in backup facility......:rolleyes:

    ok, thanks......
    but what about on android devices?

    I do have a Android phone, but I don't use it to play CK2.... I'm on an iPad.

    I have seen posts saying that if you link the game with your Facebook account on an Android device, you can save game progress that way.... Not tried it, but seem to remember a reference to it in GLU help.

    Why does the GLU FAQ not make mention of the Save to iCloud ability?

    I've triggered this by accident several times without realising what I've done or how I've done it.....

    There is a cloud symbol on the bottom left of the main menu screen

    Have the programmers not told support about this?

    I could have been saving to iCloud for ages and avoided a lot of misery.

    I shall, of course, do an iTunes backup to PC before doing a restore from iCloud just in case it doesn't work.

    That meant you were at level 7 when you last backed up the game in icloud and so when u loade the game from icloud, of course it will get you back to level 7. So the thing is, constantly back your the game (or other games or apps u have) in the icloud.

    I can confirm that iCloud Back-Up & Restore do work.

    Having done an iTunes backup to PC, I did an iCloud backup.

    All seemed well, so I checked my inventory and took a screenshot, threw a grenade or two, took note of my inventory, then did an iCloud restore and checked my inventory again.

    All was well, so I now use iCloud all the time... BUT... I still do an iTunes backup every couple of days.
