Specifically for the gamed service, the following command in one of the posts about a similar topic on the Apple Support Communities worked for me, without any need to modify plists or rename files: sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.gamed disabled -bool true Changing "true" back to "false" will re-enable it, although I've not ...

Clash of Clans is not available for OS X so you won't be able to play it on your Mac.

The simplest way is to delete the game from your iPad, which will destroy any local stored game data, and will prompt you to remove the app from Game Centre (which I assume you want to do if it's corrupt on the Server). Then redownload the app (or re-add it in iTunes in your computer). This should allow you to start with a clean slate.

Steam. With steam, you'll be able to play it on Windows too, should you ever have the need. The same can't be said for the MAS, which only offers the Mac version. It's a nice bit of future-proofing, incase you ever get a Windows PC in the future. To put it simply, you get more for your money.

No, I have suffered some Game Center outages in the past, but could not find a source directly from Apple which stated so, not even the iCloud status page. The iCloud System Status page now lists the status for all Apple internet services, including Game Center.

Extracted from the Clash of Clans FAQ: Can I continue my game on a new device? Yes you can, but it requires the use of GameCenter. The only way to transfer your account to a new device is to have the original village linked to a Game Center account. Login to that Game Center account on your new device and you will prompted to load your previous ...

First of all, make sure you have added your systems knows about your Apple ID (go to System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Your User -> Apple ID). Then launch Chess; obviously you'll need to have an internet connection. After a short wait (a second or two in my case, might depend on your internet connection), a badge like the following should appear ...

That login banner is a provided aspect of the Game Center API in the iOS SDKs, as far as I'm aware there is no way as a developer to disable it from opening when the Game Center login completes. As a user, there is certainly no way to disable it, because it is part of the application's compiled source code. However, note that it's not the banner that is ...

Fill out the form to create an Apple ID using his information: https://appleid.apple.com/account He will then start using his own ID and probably lose his old history, or you could get a new ID. Someone must start fresh I believe.

For the moment it only works on iOS. I would assume there will be plans at some point for Apple to release it to the Mac, however nothing has been mentioned publicly. Apple has also not provided any web interface for it, and I suspect if they do it will be part of iCloud.

I am not aware of a way to force the updating other than running the apps to see if they will update things as a matter of course. Some app developers store the achievements in a way that they flow back from the game center - but it's more about how each developer chooses to use all the Game Center options. Look for a much better experience when iCloud ...

Have you tried contacting your credit card provider? Seriously, Apple's intention is that iOS Game Center friends are meant for "real" friends—rather than "Facebook friends"—so exposing your real name is not a threat. If you look at the issue this way, it feels more of a security enhancement than a threat. You can be sure the friend you are friending is ...

A game center account is simply an AppleID. You can go to https://appleid.apple.com and recover her password for the AppleID you want to use in Game Center. It might also be a password problem, so checking that the account is in good standing will give you better error messages and options to recover by using the website instead of logging in through iOS.

I was having the exact same problem. I was picking my true nickname (lizzie) and it just kept spinning and spinning and never would save. So, I decided to try a nickname I KNEW no one would have (my name spelled backwards). It saved immediately. Maybe your nickname is too common? Try something truly unique. Hope that works for you.

it's easy to do if you have the old phone handy. download clash on the 5s and play through the tutorial but don't make any town hall upgrades or buy anything with real money, then on the 5s navigate settings>link device and select new device. you'll be able to get a code from your old phone to transfer villages.

You'll want to use iTunes or iCloud to which to back up your iPhone prior to replacing it. For example, if you backup to iTunes and enable encryption, all your data and passwords will be covered as well as your apps. When you get the new phone, you would then immediately connect it to your system and use iTunes to restore your data to the new phone from ...

Use your old Game Center account for your new device too. Or you can follow the guide here: http://clashofclans.wikia.com/wiki/Game_Center_User_Guide

Solution found: download CofC on another device using the same GameCenter account (my iPhone), create a village on that device, go back to the iPad and CofC offered to load my newly created village. Problem solved.

You should just be able to delete the app and redownload it again, all game data should be deleted, then.

One way I know is changing your e-mailaddress to another one and then sign up with your previous e-mailaddress. It will be a clean account at that time.

Disable the LaunchAgent (not LaunchDaemons) and reboot your machine (without sudo): $ launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.gamed.plist In case you want to enable it again at one point: $ launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.gamed.plist

I don't think Apple has a way to delete things or let you delete things - this is an iCloud general feature / design goal. It's up to each developer to clean things (or ask you if you want things cleaned) when you delete the app or use the code in the app for resetting things. You'll need to work directly with that vendor unless Apple makes a change going ...

Supercell saves your progress under your Game Center account. So, if you get a new device with a new Game Center account, you will lose your progress. To keep your progress, you will need to link your device to hers in the Clash of Clans settings.

If I understand your question correctly you can: sign into your our Game Center on your iPad 3 delete the app from the original iPad (making a backup first) sign into your friend's Game Center on your iPad reload the game and verify the correct village loaded Once that is done, you should have both villages intact.

The first thing to do is open the damn thing and log out of Game Center, and delete whatever it still filled in.

You could set a new apple ID just for the game center for him (or you) and keep other apple-id logins the same for everything else. It seems there are some games where the gamecenter only manages leaderboard stats, etc, and others where your actual game progress seems to be tied to the id. But on the other hand, problems will likely occur when using some ...

I'm concluding the answer is no until someone proves otherwise.

I'm thinking that the server just must be down. I'm having the same issues logging into my game center on my iphone 4s. Perhaps it will fix itself within the hour as things like this apparently have happened before.

The Game Center progress stays with the account, not the device so you would need to check with each specific application to see if they also maintain the game status and would propagate it to a new account or you would be starting over when it detects a new account has been added to the same device. There isn't a general "it always works this way" ...

I had a similar problem. For me, there was a verification screen that popped up behind the login screen. I could not see it at all! Not sure why I thought of it, but dragging the frontmost window out of the way showed me the verification screen, I did what needed to be done there, and on I went to Game Center to be underwhelmed.
