Try as I might, this workaround has not worked for me thus far. I've restarted several times before learning about this workaround, and this latest lost game will not restore from Game Center. I have a rock solid wifi connection, and the GC welcome always appears when I start up the app. I hesitate to start yet another game. Very disappointing. Hope it gets fixed soon.
After losing and recovering saves many times, now, I can say that the solution is to simply force quit the app, start it again, and there is a chance that it will be back. If it is not, try again. Seems about 50/50 in my experience. Airplane mode, rebooting, and Game Center don't seem to have any effect on the rate of success.
Hope this helps.
Workaround won't work for me. Both iPhone and iPod missing save game. Very annoyed.
Same here, have lost my savegame. Unfortunately I have overwritten my save with a new one, because I wasn't aware I wasn't supposed to. Why... :(
Method fror taht topic has didn't heleped me. I've lost my savedata (but not Game Center progress). Bad bad and sh*tty annoyind frustrating bug. Please fix it! I'm really upset with that. Really upset.
PLEASE FIX ISSUE WITH SAVE DATA.
PS: Great Game! Super Game! But Save Data(((((((
After finishing a race with all three win conditions, I got the error "you have been returned to the start of the game because your Game Center status has changed." I checked and was now logged in as guest. After going back to the main menu, it gave me the error again, and now I was logged in as me, and got the achievement. However, the save data is missing and none of the fixes are working.
And now Game Center lost my achievement. I even have a screen shot of getting it, with the Game Center status error on the screen.
Logged out of Game Center and found that my save is now on the guest profile.
I tried this also Uglysquid. No luck. :-(. I'm really starting to fear that my save is gone for good. And i didn't even try to make a new one, since i lost the original one.
My save loss seemed to happen after i booted up the game on my iphone. I played it on ipad until then. But i didn't create a new game save on the ipad, when i saw my original save wasn't there.
