Microsoft store issues

#1 2020-07-11 13:16:13
So I have taken a few months break from My Colony and when I came back apparently it is no longer free on MS Store. I have bought premium a while back and I have been playing through the Store edition. Is there a way for me to get my savefiles back? Or do I have to pay on MS Store again to be able to play the game? I want to switch to the ape apps version but I can't get my savefiles back. @bastecklein please help

Well if you uninstalled the previous free store version, I doubt you can recover your save files as MS Store games are sandboxed and all of your data is generally deleted when you uninstall the game. It is possible that Microsoft synced it for you, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

If you previously downloaded the Free + IAP version of the game from the store, you can still get it back. Just open the Microsoft Store app, go to the Downloads and Updates section, and click on the "All owned" link on the side. You should be able to find it there. @pecca1

O haven't uninstalled the free version yet, but MS Store doesn't let me open it, because it says the item isn't available. I have installed the ape apps version just today. @bastecklein
