Author Topic: Multiply BB on One Device : Attach your base(s) to SCID or Game Center  (Read 211 times)

0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.

DID YOU KNOW: Although a Boom Beach base lives on the server, the ability to control/access your base lives on files on your device.

If you created a base, and are not attached to SCID or GC, and your device  is: Broken, lost, stolen, or reset - YOU LOSE THE ABILITY TO PLAY YOUR BASE.

If you have attached to SCID or Game Center, you can recover  access to  your base after any of the above scenarios, simply by  logging back  into your SCID or GC and launching Boom Beach.

Linking to Facebook is NOT a recovery method - it is simply to bring Facebook friends into the game!

PLEASE ATTACH YOUR BASE NOW!

SCID (the new way)

Basically,
1) do SCID on your original game account and tick "remember me" (if you don't you'll just need another code which is a bit of a faff...)
2) Once done disconnect from SCID. which logs you out and takes you to a loading screen...
3) Chose option to play without SCID.... and you'll get a fresh base.
4) Play until you can 'connect' it to SCID.(as above) and you just log in and out of each one at will.

Game Center (the old way)

Open up Game Center App and log in. It will require an Apple ID.
Open Boom Beach
If this is your first time being logged into Game Center while using Boom Beach, your base will be saved automatically! You should see this when you open Boom Beach:




So now that you have your game hooked up you can simply Create Another Apple ID. I started my second game on a second device but you can RESET your device, create a second Apple ID with a second email and start Boom Beach up. It should give you a NEW Game to start with. Resetting your device will delete all your settings, email, well everything not factory, so it is probably better to use a second device. You can create as many BB games as you want this way and play them ALL on your preferred device.


Once you have 2 Apple IDs and 2 Boom Beaches running on separate devices, just sign into your various Apple IDs on your preferred device,

Sign out of your Apple ID
Got to Settings > Game Center
Tap on Sign Out
Then Tap on Sign In
Fill in the other email used for the second Apple ID and Password
Once it has logged in start Boom Beach
Game Center Alert
Do you want to load "GameName"? Warning Current game info will be lost.
Respond Cancel or Load

Load will load the associated game of the new Apple ID.

Cancel will Probably load the current game (from your other Apple ID) and save on the new Apple ID as well. Never had the guts to try this option. Did not ever want the same BB running on 2 Apple IDs. The other possibility is that it will just start a new Boom Beach and lose the one previously associated, either way it wipes the associated game for something else.

Now that you have both games you can sign into either at will on your device with your Apple IDs.

I personally use Game Center and the SCID video posted by Drew is in there.
Maybe I should modify the title...

I am also only using IOS on Apple gear. Is there other methods on Androids?

Sorry, I tried to edit my post but it wouldn’t allow me to.there is another thread by Tim somewhere re android.


People lost their bases when creating second accounts, I’m just wondering if we should just stick to SCID as it’s far safer?



After writing the above I do see the need for attaching as not everyone signs up for SC ID when they have one account!

Attaching with android...

 I’m wondering if it is worth splitting the topics so it is easier to follow? (New posts not threads!) 
1) attach to GC / google play and SC ID

2) creating a second account.start with SC ID if people don’t want to do that do the old method and run the risk of loosing. 

I can delete these posts or u can start a new thread and I’ll remove this when it is complete?

This post covers all I know of multi account play on one device, and references the specific threads that cover it, if one wants to explore further. Kind of an all in one stop to know how.

What I don't know is SCID without using GC first. Drews vid did not cover that aspect and I have never used SCID.
Toss me the info I am missing and I will happily edit it into the top post.

I know most everyone here now knows how to do this. It is more for someone new looking for info. When I tried to find this info originally, it was spread through many threads in SC Forums. I eventually figured it out by accident really when I got a second device.

The problem is that for people who are looking for information should really be directed to SCID (imo). 

With SCID there is no need for separate GC or Google Play accounts.  The information above on creating new apple ID's and google play accounts is simply outdated and risky. ie, not knowing what happens if you click cancel and not load. There is no need to reset the device. The number of complaints about lost accounts.....

Basically,

1) do SCID on your original game account and tick "remember me" (if you don't you'll just need another code which is a bit of a faff...)
2) Once done disconnect from SCID. which logs you out and takes you to a loading screen... 
3) Chose option to play without SCID.... and you'll get a fresh base.
4) Play until you can 'connect' it to SCID.(as above) and you just log in and out of each one at will. 

is there an advantage to having different GC accounts still?  Is that the only way to get ER across different accounts? ( I have no idea on how to go about this, I just know it is possible.) But I suspect it won't be if just SCID is used without the account being attached to Apple ID.

I have heard that in CoC, there are scammers that steal your account when you save your account through their email to SC ID. Do you think it is possible for those scammers to appear in Boom Beach too? If yes, then save your base instantly to Supercell ID so that you cannot lose it.

This subject makes my head spin. I still haven't created additional accounts to this day because of the confusion, android vs iOS, multiple devices and risk of overwriting my main account that SC warned me about ages ago. It sounds like SCID has simplified the process somewhat for a lot of people. So if a post can be written for Help/Support that encompasses everything that's still relevant on this subject in a clear and concise step by step manner I think that would be a big help to anyone trying to navigate the process.

Offline LilMiss

Yup! its a guide that is needed! 
But if there is no advantage to having separate GC accounts / Google play I don't think that we should address this method as it is out dated. 

If there is an advantage I think that we should still post it, along with the advantage... people can choose.

Updated original post with SCID info on the top.
As everyone adds down here, more accurate info I will move it up there.

Thx for the SCID info LilMiss.

I'll try to take pictures and go through the process of try to set up a new account! You can then add it to your post and no need to refer back to other  posts as it is the new method. Obviously keep LANfill's for the old version.
