Unable to import iOS world/player data after reinstalling

PostSat May 09, 2020 10:31 am

I’m trying to restore old iOS save files but the game doesn’t recognizes them for some reason.

I’ve put them in the “3/worlds” and “3/player” directory via iTunes file transfer but after rebooting the game it doesn’t recognize neither my character or the world I’ve put a ton of time in and carefully backed up when I uninstalled the game.

I’m pretty sure this was still working in a version of Junk Jack 2 years ago.

Is there any trick to get this to work? I want to get back into the game but having to start all over after hours and hours of work just sucks.

If it helps, my backup is stored here on Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... lsCsvXlRgI

Most likely the save file format has changed and your saves are no longer compatible. If you're lucky you may be able to find someone to convert your saves through multiple versions to bring them up to date, but do not hold your breath as I'd expect most people no longer have multiple versions of Junk Jack installed.

Correct. The game only recognizes saves from 1 or maybe 2 previous versions. Prior to that compatibility drops.
1. Junk-Jack-Wiki
2. The world is big, 256 blocks high and 768 across.
3. Who is John Galt?
4. Lack of objection does not indicate consent.
