This is a quick step by step to backup your game to the cloud until Play Services are engaged by David.


Put that file in the Cloud ( Google Drive )

1. Go to the game and make a backup.
2. It will be named EK.bak or it will have a number attatched if it was during beta that you did the backup.
3. Open file manager on your Android device.
4. Select All Files, then Internal Storage
5. Look for the file mentioned in step 2
6. Long press that file and choose Upload
7. Select Google Drive and then click Save.

To Restore from the Cloud:

1. Go to Google Drive App
2. Find your backup file
3. Click the three vertical dots and choose Download
4. Put it in the same location as the backup you created.
5. Load game, and do the restore
6. Be happy you did a backup, be happy your new device has the save file on it, or just be happy that you know how.

The nice part is you have access to a restore as long as the Android device has Data connected to it. Please also note some cool ninjas know that you can make the file Available Offline, so not even Data is required.

If anyone needs more details, I can expand this to the original 220 steps I had written...

I hope this helps atleast one (2) person...

Thanks, very useful.

Alternatively, many people just email it to themselves. But it's true that saving attachments often doesn't allow you to choose the download folder.

I chose to use Drive for this walkthrough because:

While E-Mail uses attachments, Drive is direct control of of the file. Drive also provides sharing options, where an attachment can be unwieldy at times. This also provides quick multi-device configurations.

Since the last update, you can download the file on your android default "Download" folder, and the game will recognize it.
