I am playing Asphalt 8 Airborne game in my Windows phone. I would like to switch over to Android and would like to continue playing it in Android. By doing so, I would not like to restart the game from scratch and would like to bring the game data like reputation, completed levels etc from my Windows phone.

Are there any ways and methods to achieve the same?

Note from the editor: It is like using Titanium Backup to copy app data from one phone to another, except here the source is a Windows phone.

  • Your question is not clear. What are you trying to solve? This sounds like a programming question, if it is so, this question will be an off topic. In case if it is not, please elaborate what you want in a better way. – Narayanan Oct 14 '14 at 4:26
  • Are you asking about a specific app or game? – Dan Hulme Oct 14 '14 at 9:37
  • @Beron, to avoid closure of this question and to aid reopening, I rephrased your question. Please feel free to edit or convey if it differs from your original intention. – Narayanan Oct 15 '14 at 4:52

    @Beron as far as the edit if this is what you really want to achieve then you need to use the help option in your game wherein you will have a chance to contact the customer support and you may tell him your problem. – user285oo6 Oct 15 '14 at 9:58
  • @Narayanan I think your edit was a bit too extensive. The OP's first edit where he added what game he was asking about was sufficient for the question to be reopened. You've also added "Windows phone" when Beron said only that it was from Windows (most likely a PC). – Dan Hulme Oct 16 '14 at 9:46

No, you can't get around it by copying the save data yourself from your PC to your phone. The reason the game doesn't support cross-platform sync isn't just because it doesn't know how to copy the files. (Obviously it does, or you wouldn't be able to sync on the same platform either.) It's because the different versions of the game have different data formats. So even if you did copy the save data, the game on Android wouldn't be able to understand it. It might ignore it completely, or it might crash trying to load it.

It was the developer's choice to do it this way. They obviously didn't think that spending time on making the different versions compatible was worthwhile.

    Nope. Same link: "Please note that only devices with the same operating system (Android, iOS, Windows 8) can be synchronized." – Morrison Chang Oct 15 '14 at 22:24
