Everyone always asks how to upload/download worlds and I'm getting tired of typing instructions, so I'm just going to make a thread so that in the future I can just say "go here".

***Begin Lecture***

These (in blue) are the instructions to backup your JunkJack files onto your computer, you need to know how to do this before trying world sharing.

Step 0: Plug your iDevice into your computer and open iTunes.
Step 1: Click on your iDevice in the left sidebar.
Step 2: Click on the apps tab along the top.
Step 3: Scroll down to the "File Sharing" section and click on Junk Jack.
Step 4: Select the files you want to save (hold shift to select multiple files).
Step 5: Click the "Save to..." button

Step 6: Choose a folder to save to and click "Choose" (It might not actually say "Choose" on a pc but you get the idea).
In the pic below I am saving a backup of all my files onto my computer.
Since I already have each of those files in that folder I will have to click "replace" from the annoying little popup that appears.

Now that you know how to do that and have a backup of your files
(you did backup didn't you?), you can load someone else's world onto your iDevice.

Step a: Find a suitable world that you would like to try, it will most likely be a "mediafire.com" download.
Step b: Download that onto your computer (be careful not to replace the backups you just saved)

_____________________________________________________________________________________You can change the number of the world (1, 2 or 3) if you want.
Step c: Go through steps 0-3 from above.
Step d: Click the "Add..." button (#5 in pic) and select the file you just downloaded. You will have to click replace.
Step e: Have fun playing someone else's world.


Now to upload your world for others to use.

Step A: Go through steps 0-6 from above.
Step B: Go to mediafire.com
Step C: Click the upload button and choose the file you want to upload.
Step D: Once your upload is complete you will be redirected to a mediafire download page, post a link to that page on the forums.


Oh, I almost forgot to mention what the different files are.
The "charinfo.dat" file contains your inventory, craftbook and health level (possibly also statistics related to achievements).
The "world1.dat" "world2.dat" and "world3.dat" contain all information about their respective worlds including character location (these are the files you will transfer most often).
Any files ending in ".bak" are backup files of the other files. Which are created when you hit the backup button in the pause menu and are only used when you hit the respective restore button.


***End Lecture***

Jeez, making indepth guides is a lot of work, I'm tired now :yawn:
Hey look, most of the step numbers/letters look like faces if you turn your head sideways.

Thanks, I figured if I was going to do this I would go ahead and take my time.
I figure this guide is just about foolproof.

I was wondering if anyone would pay attention to the other folders I showed.
