Hey Everyone, A fair number of you have reported losing your account data when you updated Aurora Feint. Unfortunately, it seems this is a bug in Apple's Update process. Sometimes, under certain conditions, the updater will lose an application's local save files. Aurora Feint attempts to "backup" its save files to our web server to mitigate this issue. We've had some bugs with it, so it will fail occasionally for some people.
We greatly apologize for the inconvenience. We are completely revamping our account system. Your account will work like a traditional web-site/game account where you create a user name and password. We will also begin linking your accounts and characters to our own custom forum and other fun web site goodies to be announced at a later date.
The client update with proper accounts and friend codes will be released as 1.1 in about three weeks. It will support other goodies like being able to transfer between phones on your own, recover an existing account manually if the save files are lost, and a revamp to the community section using Friend Codes instead of your contact list.
This still does not fix the potential loss of data on Update until AFTER you have updated to 1.1. We're hoping Apple will address its update issue shortly.
Again we're really sorry about the frustration. It sucks a lot to hear you guys dealing with crappy issues like this. So, trust us, we're working to smooth things out.

Is there no way to recover lost data from you guys? I lost everything, I had all magic books completed, all essences mastered, all tools mastered, except for 7/8 on the time stopper and strategist, with all blueprints built except the master prep for battle for each. Forget the number of crystals and mined resources/tools. Seriously, I do NOT want to start over, it took me forever to get that far.

The sigs are a good way to tell if you device ever validated and updated with our system, since in the current release there is no in game method for this. I am adding a method for viewing this in game to 188.8.131.52. If the stats don't show up on the sigs, then we don't have them.

Tenoh, we seem to be rowing the same sinking boat here. How do I go about my signature then? (By the way, no matter how huffy I want to be and say that's it, I'm done, I'm not. I love this game, even if I'm back to peon status)
hi guys. I also have a problem with my signature, and therefore with the account data on the server. When I created the signature I got ID 431 but this points to an unknown user called "Fizulkar". My nick is "sciolto".

I have never had my stats show up in my signature. right now I get the [image] where my stats would be 0 all across the board. Is the reason for no stats in the signature is because I use the iPod Touch??
