Game Transfer from iOS to Mac

#1 2017-10-02 23:11:45
So I was able to transfer my game from my iPad to my mac without any problem using google drive. But when I went to send it back so I could be mobile, the iPad version of My Colony would not let me select and subsequently downloaded or restore the new backup created from my laptop.

Has anyone else experienced this or know of a solution I may be missing? The save file is present in my google drive, but is shaded so I can not select it.

iOS devices can’t restore files from cloud. And, as far as I know you can’t transfer the saves with iTunes either.
I haven’t tried deleting the save on the iOS device before trying the restore from th cloud, maybe you can try with a save that’s not your main.

A colony I’ve started on windows I wasn’t able to restore on iOS before but now I could. I believe that if your iOS device has a save with the same name it can’t replace it, but if you delete the old file (bc you played on other device) you will be able to restore the game. Again, I recommend you to test this with a colony you don’t mind losing, or losing progress.
