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.

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Yes - the Game Center sign-in can be the same or different than the Apple ID entered in other places (i.e. iTunes Store and iCloud). Make your son an Apple ID for his Game Center and later he can use it for other uses.

Game Center only saves games achievement. It never saves game progress. Game developers resolve different method to store your progress. 1. iCloud Storage: Your data are stored locally on your iCloud account. Usually you just have to reinstall the game and you’ll be able to continue the game without problem. Eg. Pocket Planes 2. Facebook Connect: The ...

At this time it is a little late. You will have to factory reset one of them, redownload the game and start that game with a new gamecenter ID (do not use your old one for your base, but a brand new ID). Then you will have a new account. You can switch between the two by simply changing your Gamecenter ID from one to the other on either device. Without the ...

iPhone 4 GSM Black: I had the same issue when I updated to 6.1.2 from my previous version 5.1.1 when the evasi0n jailbreak came out. I solved the problem by restoring to the factory default. Then I went through the beginning steps of the iphone introduction, when i open and logged in to gamecenter everything came through pretty smooth... I jailbreaked it ...

It doesn't look like you can transfer In-app purchases between devices: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4009 Subscriptions and replenishable In-App Purchase cannot be transferred or synced to another iOS device. Non-replenishable In-App Purchases and auto-renewing subscriptions can be transferred to another iOS device authorized with your iTunes ...

If you ensure that each device has a distinct iCloud account so that the Documents and Data for each device is stored in a separate account, you can have the 4 devices all share one Apple ID for purchasing and have a separate account for each child's mail, contacts, messages, etc...

You will need to check the settings app and sign out of the App Store for the account you don't want to purchase things. There are about 5 places you can enter an Apple ID in the settings so that you can mix one app for music and apps, another for home sharing, another for iMessage, another for iCloud and another for Game Center.

As bmike mentioned, there are multiple places to enter an AppleID to be used with the various Apple services. Some apps use the main iCloud account where others can be configured to a different ID. If the iPod is primarily for your son, or anyone else, I would recommend setting up the iDevice under his Apple ID then log into the family account for other ...

You can log into your old account again directly in the GameCenter app: start GameCenter go to your profile and scroll down tap on your account name (at the bottom) to log out log in with the old account

This may be possible by opening the "Game Center" app on your youngest son's device and logging him into a third Apple account, or possibly just logging him out of Game Center. Depending on the game, if you are playing over wifi at the same time he may not need to be logged into the Game Center account for the others to see his activity.

There does seem to be a way to disable Game Centre, but it's not obvious, or wasn't to me. Sign out of Game Centre. If you then start a Game Centre game it will pop up asking you to log in to Game Centre again. Instead of logging in, press the Cancel button in the top left hand corner. Then Exit the game and repeat until you've opened the game and ...
