HOW TO TRANSFER ACCOUNTS BETWEEN IDEVICES

Postby Wulf on Jul 23 2011, 6:53am

HOW TO TRANSFER ACCOUNTS BETWEEN IDEVICES
Image
Simple. The developers have made you a convenient webpage for just this purpose. You can now go to http://www.kingdomsatwar.com/transfer/ to transfer your KaW account between different iPhones/iPods/iPads. You will need the 40-digit UDID number off of the old device and the new device to complete the transfer. If you do not know your UDID than go back to the first post and select the appropriate "How to Find your UDID" link
WARNING: You cannot have more than one account on a device. If you transfer the account from Device A to Device B then the account on Device B be transferred to Device A.

You can transfer your account up to 5 times. This is to prevent abuse of this feature as a tool for account sharing.

HOW TO GET YOUR UDID IF YOU DO HAVE YOUR IDEVICE

Postby Wulf on Jul 25 2011, 9:35am


Image
WHAT IS THE UDID AND HOW DO I FIND IT

Image
The purpose of this guide is to help people find their UDID (THEMSELVES) in order to transfer their account from one iDevice to another in the event that your iDevice is lost, stolen, broken, or simply upgraded.

Before we begin I cannot stress enough:
DO NOT GIVE YOUR UDID TO ANYONE
The UDID is the Unique Device Identification number. It is a number unique to each iDevice (iPhone, iPod, iPad) that is used by developers to distribute apps directly into the device. The UDIDs are used to create an Apple-certified provisioning file and coordinate your device with your account.
:!: The UDID can be used to steal your Account as well as other Apps that my be on your device. Do not give it to anyone!
:evil:



Now, How to obtain your UDID if:

Image
I HAVE MY I DEVICE and I CAN PLUG IT INTO ITUNES
Image
If you have your iDevice obtaining your UDID is cake. (Not the kind of Cake that is a lie)
These steps are outlined on The Device Transfer Page
:arrow: Connect your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad to your computer.
:arrow: In iTunes, select your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad from the DEVICES list.
:arrow: Select the Summary tab.
:arrow: Click on the entry labeled Serial Number. The entry will change to Identifier and display your device's UDID.
:arrow: To copy your device's UDID, open the Edit menu and select Copy.
:arrow: Paste the UDID above.

If that is still not clear here is a link to a Video where you can watch this being done.

HOW MANY ACCOUNTS AM I ALLOWED TO HAVE

Postby Wulf on Jul 28 2011, 9:45pm

HOW MANY ACCOUNTS AM I ALLOWED TO HAVE

Image
You are allowed one account per idevice YOU own and only one Computer account.
    - You may not make an account on an iDevice belonging to someone else.
    - You may not create multiple accounts on an iDevice or use a ​ to access multiple accounts.
    - You may not share your account with anyone else.
    - You may have one Computer Only account
    - iDevices accounts linked to a PC do not count as Computer accounts.

Breaking any of these rules may result in immediate game banning and/or account deletion without warning.

So, For Example: If you have a iPod, and iPad, and an iPhone, and five Computers then you can have FOUR accounts total.
    - 1 on the iPod
    - 1 on the iPad
    - 1 on the iPhone
    - and 1 on the computer.
It doesn't matter that you have 5 computers you are only allowed one computer account.

NOTE: Lets say your roommate plays KaW. S/He may have a computer only account as well but I strongly recommend against using the same computer as the developers will likely not be able to tell the difference between two people using the same computer for their legal accounts vs one person illegally having two computer accounts.

Here it is from a Developers mouth:

kaw wrote:Can you have a Linked iDevice & a Computer only based account?
Can you link multiple iDevices & have a Computer Only only based account?
Can you link multiple iDevices when you do not have a Computer only based account?


Yes to all three of the above questions. As long as each iDevice is used to access only one account, and each account is only accessed from one iDevice, these three scenarios are fine.

What you can't have are multiple accounts which are PC-only (i.e. linked to Facebook and/or Mochi Games logins, but no iDevice). You can have a maximum of one PC-only account.

DE-LINKING AN ACCOUNT

Postby Wulf on Jul 29 2011, 12:47pm

DE-LINKING AN ACCOUNT

Image
Perhaps you want to link a to a different/new Facebook account. Perhaps you decided you wold rather have your iPod linked to the PC instead of your iPhone.
Whatever the reason there is currently no "User Available" way to de-link your account.

Should you wish to de-link your account you will need to do the following:
Compose a very well written and detailed eMail to the Customer Support Team at Device_Transfers@AThinkingApe.com. You may also use Support@AThinkingApe.com but may delay response time.
Explain in Detail what you wish to do.
Give them as much information as possible:
    - Your account name.
    - That you are playing Kingdoms At War
    - Your Current Linked Facebook Account's Associated Email Address
    - If you know the date you created the account that would help too
    (ProTip - Look at achievement on PC. If it says you got the 120 day achievement 10 days ago you created the account 130 days ago)
    Most requests are processed within 24 - 48 hours. If the Customer Support Team hasn't completed your request within 48 hours a second eMail is prudent. You may also consider contacting a moderator at that time to request assistance. Moderators cannot make this change but they may be able to get you priority support.

Some people may be uncomfortable giving their password to anyone. Even ATA. Here is what you do.
    Step 1: Log into Facebook/Mochi and change your password.
    Step 2: Go through transfer process
    Step 3: When process is complete log into Facebook/Mochi and change your password back

TRANSFERRING ACCOUNTS BETWEEN FACEBOOK AND/OR MOCHI ACCOUNTS

Postby Wulf on Aug 16 2011, 11:18am

TRANSFERRING BETWEEN FACEBOOK AND/OR MOCHI

Image
Perhaps you want to link a to a different/new Facebook account. Perhaps you would rather use the Mochi Interface. Perhaps you don't like the Mochi interface and wish to use the KingdomsAtWar.com Facebook interface.
Whatever the reason there is currently no "User Available" way to change which Facebook or Mochi account houses your game.

Should you wish to move your account from Facebook to Mochi or Vice-Verse or switch from one Facebook/Mochi Account to another you will need to do the following:
Compose a very well written and detailed eMail to the Customer Support Team at Device_Transfers@AThinkingApe.com. You may also use Support@AThinkingApe.com but may delay response time.
Explain in Detail what you wish to do.
Give them as much information as possible:
    - Your account name.
    - That you are playing Kingdoms At War
    - Your Currently used Mochi/Facebook Username
    - Your Desired Mochi/Facebook Username
    - If you know the date you created the account that would help too
    (ProTip - Look at achievement on PC. If it says you got the 120 day achievement 10 days ago you created the account 130 days ago)

    If you wish to swap accounts then spell that out carefully. For example:
      I currently have MyKawAccount1 on Facebook with username xxx
      and
      I currently have MyKawAccount2 on Mochi with username yyy

      Could you:
      please transfer MyKawAccount1 to Mochi with username yyy
      and
      please transfer MyKawAccount to Facebook with username xxx

    With these requests the devil is in the details. Make sure your eMail is organized, detailed, and easy to understand.

Most requests are processed within 24 - 48 hours. If the Customer Support Team hasn't completed your request within 48 hours a second eMail is prudent. You may also consider contacting a moderator at that time to request assistance. Moderators cannot make this change but they may be able to get you priority support.

Never give your passwords to anyone! ATA will never need nor ask for them.

LINKING FACEBOOK AND MOCHI

Postby Wulf on Oct 13 2011, 9:39am

Many concerned about rumors that MochiGames may be discontinuing its hosting of games such as Kingdoms At War.
Although the login issues have been resolved for now the future of KAW on Mochi is uncertain.
The Developers of KAW are hard at work looking for alternatives but for now encourage players to link their Mochi account to FaceBook in order to secure access their KAW account via PC.

To follow are steps you can follow that will legally allow you to access your account from both Mochigames and Facebook. This way if Mochi has a service interruption you will still be able to access your account from Facebook. You will be able to use either interface.


Step 1: Go to http://www.Mocigames.com and enter your login information.
    Image
Step 2: Click on the "Account Settings" tab
    Image
Step 3: Scroll down until you see "Email Settings". Here you will need to change the eMail address to match the eMail address of a Facebook account that is not currently linked to a KAW account.
"Verifying" the email address is not required unless you want Mochi to have the email address so they can contact you. (ie. in the case of "lost password")
(Alternately you may create a new Facebook Account using the same email address you used for Mochi however you are advised to read FaceBook's terms of use prior to making multiple facebook accounts)
    Image
Step 4: Now it is time to go to http://www.Facebook.com and log out of any existing Facebook accounts and then log into the Facebook account with the email address that matches your Mochigames email.
(Remember the Facebook account cannot be one linked to any other KAW account)
    Image
Step 5: Go to http://www.KingdomsAtWar.com and click on the green "Play FREE now" button which will bring up a "New Player" tutorial.
(If it brings up an account other than the "New Player tutorial" then this facebook was already linked and you will not be able to proceed with the following steps)
    Image
Step 6: On the upper righthand side of the screen click "Link iPhone"
(Do not worry, we are linking Mochi to Facebook, an iDevice is not required and no iPhone account will be harmed in this process, just click the button)
    Image
Step 7: On the new screen click the button that says "Link My Account" under the "Mochi Games player" section.
    Image
Step 8: Linking Complete. You will now be able to access the same account from either
Mochigames at: http://www.kingdomsatwar.com/mochigames/play.html
or Facebook at: http://www.kingdomsatwar.com/play
When you see this screen you are all done.
    Image

Note: If you get a the following screen then the Facebook account you used was recognized by KAW as one already linked and you will not be able to link it manually. Repeat the above steps using a new Facebook Account or contact: Device_Transfers@AThinkingApe.com for assistance migrating your mochi account to Facebook.

Linking A Droid/Kindle to a PC

Postby Wulf on Jul 22 2012, 12:40pm

Image
LINKING DROID/KINDLE TO A PC
Image

Download and Install KAW on Kindle or Droid

On Main screen click the little Cogs "Gears" to go into settings.

Click Link to Facebook.

If you have an account already on that Facebook you will be given the choice to keep your Kindle account or your Facebook Account.

Chose the one you want to keep. It will be accessible from both Facebook and from Kindle/Droid

The Other Will Be Deleted!

Simple as that.

If you want to use Mochi instead of Facebook Only the Developers can make that link.
eMail Device_Transfer@AThihnkingApe.com to make the request.
