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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

No. I do that all the time. I have a TH 3 village and a TH 8 village. When switching from my TH 8 to TH 3, it gives me the message. I later switch back to my TH 8 and it is perfectly fine. From here (http://www.reddit.com/r/ClashOfClans/comments/1n51uh/is_it_possible_to_have_2_villages_on_one_device/) it says (quoted from Chief LPFX): Each time you ...

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.

I'd suggest makeing a complete back up of your first-gen iPad via iTunes and then restoring it to your iPad 3. This should conserve the game saves and iOS app data.


1

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


1

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.


1

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.

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...

Yes you can, but village is on your game center acc, so you must change your game center account and the game will start from zero.

This game saves progress to Game Center. If you both use the same AppleID for Game Center to log in, that would explain what you are seeing.


1

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.


1

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

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 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.


1

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.

Yes, it's possible to suppress the Game Center Welcome banner programmatically from within your app, at least under iOS 7. My approach is predicated on a few observations: The banner is presented as an additional UIWindow within your UIApplication. This window always seems to appear at index 1. (presuming your app only uses one window.) The banner is 66 ...
