Important Question About Updating IOS Game

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Dec 08, 2013 12:03 pm

Dear All Construct 2 friends and Admin,
I am in a development process of my ios game with construct 2 and cocoonjs.
I have a question that always be in my head.

My question is, if i release an update of my already published ios game to the app store, will the new updated installation overwrite the old game data or reset the current player's save data?
or is there another step to be done to keep the save data to be not overwritten or resetted?

the player's save data will be the global variable that is saved after in-app purchased is made. i don't want my player to lose their game progress and their past purchase of IAPs to be wasted.

The answer is really important to me, and maybe some people will want to know it too.

Anyone experience creating ios game and has made an update for their game, please help us too with your experiences.

Best to ask Ludei about this - it depends on what their platform does. I'd suspect it keeps all user data.

Thanks for super fast response,
Ok. I'll try to ask ludei about this.
But, if anyone here who already published ios game, please share your experience.

Our game is not in the Appstore just yet - we're releasing it in January - but I think if you use webstorage to store the data and don't clear the cache with any events on game start etc. you should be fine.

I'd double check with Ludei just to be sure... actually, there goes another thing on my growing to-do list!

Hey dude,
Yes, i do think the webstorage will do this. But, still need to test it first.
Thank you.
