Q: On iOS I get an error message saying: “Authentication error : GC error”. How can I solve it?
A: Please go to your iOS device settings. Scroll down to Game Center and log out. Log back in again. If that does not solve it, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: My game got stuck.
A: Please go back to the menu and reload your game from the running games menu.
Q: How do I add friends to play with me?
A: For PC: Open the game. Go to your profile (button with meeple silhoutte). Navigate to the friends tab and search for your friends username (3 letters min.). Click on the friends entry and then on the yellow meeple silhouette with the green “plus” icon on the top right of your profile window. You will see your pending friend request in the friends panel. As soon as your friends accept your friendship requests they will show up in casual games as selectable opponents. This works on PC platforms.
Mobile: Open the app. Go to your profile (button on the left top) and search for your friends name. Add them by clicking on the + symbol. As soon as your friends accept your friendship requests they will show up in casual games as selectable opponents. This works on all platforms. (For a detailed walkthrough – you can have a look here: https://digidiced.com/hauptmenu-main-menu/)
Q: I am on (any) platform. Can I play against a friend on (any other) platform?
A: As long as our game has been released on both platforms you can play against your friends.
Q: I get an error on Android saying my account could not be verified. How can I solve that?
A1: Please try to clear your app and device cache. Go into Settings menu. Press the Cog icon in your notification shade. Find Apps in the menu, then locate the app that you want to clear the cache for. Tap on Storage and clear your cache.
A2: Make sure Google Play is up to date. We still use this for account verification.
Q: In this ranked game I encountered a bug and lost RP due to this. Can this game be redone, can I get my RP back, etc.?
A: While we feel your loss as fellow gamers, we cannot start checking every single game for possible bugs. We can therefore not recover any lost RP. If you encounter such a bug, please do not hesitate to inform us with a bug report from the running game (if possible).
Q: Nobody answered me. Am I being ignored?
A: No! While no bug report is forgotten in our ticketing system and we try to answer everyone, sometimes we are just plain busy fixing and developing things. Please visit our homepage and look for your game. On the game page you will find a green link to the community support compass (not all games are equipped with that yet, but we are on it). The support compass will state any info concerning the status of the game and coming patches. You can also see what bug we are trying to reproduce and what is fixed in the coming update.
Q: How do I get these awesome avatars that are not in my game?
A: All of our games feature new avatar pictures. So buying more of our games = more avatars to choose from. Sometimes we give rare ones out when there is an event going on. Make sure not to miss it by following us on twitter or facebook.
Q: Your app seems to use a lot of battery power. What can I do?
A: All of our games have an HD option in the main menu, which you can turn off. This also disables some animations or graphical elements users find distracting.
Q: I have your app on that platform and just bought it for another platform. Can I use the same account on both platforms?
A: Yes you can. Navigate to your profile (yellow meeple silhouette) and hit the upper left positioned menu button (three horizontal yellow lines). This will open a sub menu that holds the merge accounts function. Please follow the instructions statet there.
For all games on the old server (all but Gaia Project) use this address and enter the details of both accounts. Click on the button to merge.
Now log out of the old account and log back in. You are good to go. All games will be synched on both devices.
Q: Concerning permissions on mobile devices. Which ones and why do you need these?
A: Identity & Contacts: To access Google Play and enable online play.
Phone & Device ID & call information: To check the online status of the phone.
Photos/Media/Files & Storage: To save local games on the device.
Full Network Access: To enable online play.
We do not access your call informations or any personal data! (and we do not want to). We will take an additional look, if we can reduce any of these, but rest assured that we have no other than technical reasons for the permissions. We use Contacts: Find accounts and not Contacts: Read your contacts. Why Google chose to put these confusing terms here we really do not know. Again: We do not want your contacts. We want to make sure your account can connect to our server. Thank you for understanding!
