I've tried chiming in to a couple of existing threads with no luck, so thought I'd start my own..
• I made a complete Back Up of my iPhone 4,
• Restored it to my iPhone 5, everything works perfectly,
• EXCEPT Deer Hunter 2014, which has lost ALL progress/regions/guns/money/etc.
So, I've 'Backed Up' my whole iPhone 4 (as it had a cracked screen) using iTunes, and Restored it to my iPhone 5 (my brother had spare). After the usual re-entering email addresses/usernames/passwords and general signing in and updating Apps, everything EXCEPT Deer hunter 2014 that was restored to the new iPhone 5, was working absolutely fine. All the other Apps/Games work fine, and all have the correct Game Progress/Status/Unlocked Features/etc... But Not Deer Hunter 2014, which starts completely from the start again, yet signs in to the 'Game Centre' under my account perfectly fine.
I have been using the newer iPhone 5 for a couple of months now, and everything else is still fine, but no amount of tinkering (or manually copying and pasting game data) will get Deer Hunter to work with the correct game progress etc.
I have submitted a support ticket and follow ups ages ago, and after almost a month gotten a reply.. But I don't think they read my problem properly, and even after explaining the problem quite clearly and thoroughly, it seems they think I had a problem with my in-app Purchases, which was never even mentioned! They then only suggested:
• To Backup and Restore the whole iPhone via iTunes
(Which I have already done, and the restore doesn't restore progress for Deer Hunter 2014 only, which is why I'm submitting a support ticket).
• To contact iTunes, about my purchases with billing and in-app purchases..
(Which I did not ask about, and has nothing to do with Backup/Restore or transfer game progress from 1 iPhone to another).
This, after waiting nearly a month for a response, has been really, really disappointing. Not to mention frustrating.. :-(
Please, Please, Please, can someone help!?!?
I still have the 'OLD' iPhone 4, and Deer Hunter 2014 is still working on it with the correct game status and all current updates if that helps. I also have Backups from before and after the v1 and v2 updates I think.
I have tried manually getting the saved game data from one iPhone to the other with desktop apps like 'iExplorer' and 'iFunBox', where you simply copy and paste the info/files in the 'Documents' folder from within the App on the old phone, and into the App in the new phone. And again, this seems to work for other Apps and Games, but not Deer Hunter 2014!!!
There HAS to be someone out there that's come across a fix for this.. any suggestions??
