Is it possible to play same account on 2 different devices? I normally play on my phone, but I decided to download the game to my Kindle. I thought there would be some prompt to enter my Storm8 id to retrieve my bakery, but it just started from the beginning and I couldn't find anything that would let me enter an existing id. Is it not possible to either play on multiple devices or switch devices altogether? Thank for your help :)

You can play the same account on more than one device. Just make sure you have two i.d.'s in case you want an account where you can send yourself gifts.

Are you sure it isn't there? It's kind of hard to find. From the main menu, click "Social", then "Invite Friends", then you will see where it says "Your Storm8 ID". Click the button that says "Account Settings" then you will see the green button that says "Log in to Another Account".

But how do I get the game i just installed on my Kindle to connect to this existing id? I don't see anywhere to sign in. When I go the the invite friends tab, it's asking me to create a new account. When i enter this id, it says sorry this account name is already taken and there are no additional prompts.

ETA - Mine's an older Kindle Fire if that makes a difference...

You can't login with the same ID on two different devices. You can only transfer, switch or create new account on the other.
1 account = 1 device.

You needf to create a new account first, after that you'll be able to login with your old ID. No idea why, thats just how they do it lol.

Oh I'm sorry, when you said that Kindle has no login I assumed you were the original poster and you didn't have a login because you hadn't made your storm ID yet or just didn't know where to find it. Since you've already done all that then for whatever reason they must not include a login on Kindle. I'm sorry, that sucks :(. So much simpler to be on both when your phone dies it comes in handy.

Well, boo :( That's not very nice for us Kindle users. Between my Android phone and now the Kindle issue, I feel a bit unloved. But I rarely use my Kindle for games anyway. I use it mostly for... gasp! Reading! Lol :D I just thought it would be nice to see my bakery on a bigger screen. Maybe I'll need to "borrow" my husband's tablet that he never uses...

I'm on iOS and in the upper right there's a storm 8 symbol that also morphs into an 8. Click that and "log into a different account" is a choice maybe there's something similar on the kindle? If not post it on the Bugs and issues section of the forum

You guys just confused me lol

I'm playing my same game on two devices.

Who - make sure you reread the directions in that link.

Make sure you've set a password with your id on your phone game.

Just because your playing the game & have a storm id and have given your restaurant a name doesnt mean you have set a password for
your storm id.

you need to set a password in the account settings on your phone game.

I never did that & lost my game for months and had to do way too much techie techie stuff with support, itunes & receipts for past
purchases. Think thats why my join date is so recent.

Yes you can. I play on my iPhone and Android tablet. One device doesn't ever kick me off of the other.

You definitely should. I bought a crappy Samsung tab last Black Friday. The graphics are horrible as compared to my phone but WOW!!! It is so much easier to play on this thing, especially when it comes to remodeling. No more trying to pull a chair over 800 times because my finger somehow keeps "grabbing" the table instead. A bigger screen equals a way faster remodel.

The new log out stuff is in the social tab, then in the invite friends part. You may have to create a password. But to get it on 2 devices you have to start a new game until you are able to invite friends then you should get the change settings which will then give you the option to sign in to a different account,

I know this has been answered before but I couldn't find a very current post. I am getting a new phone today. Can someone please give me the steps I need to take to get my game transferred before I activate and/or DL BS to my new phone? I've been playing for 3 years and would die if I lost my game! Thank you so much.

Just go to main/help/FAQ. Then make a password. You can then log onto your bakery on any device just using your storm8 ID and password. I have 2 bakeries that I go between on my iPad many times a day.

i like that you said "i would die if i lost my game!"

make a note of how many gems you have just in case something goes horribly wrong (it won't though). and it's always fun to use a new phone to set up a baby bakery! then you can have 2 places (and sometimes can gift yourself that one last part you need).

Einmomo, don't worry, it works fine if you keep your S8 ID and password handy. My iPad crashed last month and Until Apple shipped me a new part I used this feature to log in daily from a nbrs phone just to gift. Write them down before you initiate a transfer.

You can only have one storm ID (one game) assigned to a device.

If you have another device, you can start up another game with a different storm ID.

After that you can log in and out of your games on one device, but please note that once you set up a storm ID on a device, even if you log into your game with your other device, your game will still be available on the other device, so I do not recommend using a friends device to set up a second game.
Make sure it is a device you own .

Click on the Storm8 logo on the top right corner of the game and then click on “Account Settings”. Then click on “Log in to another account”. Do that after you have set up 2 accounts.

as far as i know, you can only loose gem dispencer - if you have it.
the point is that this thing is not working on android, and not even seen in your bakery via android. so, if you put smth on it's place - you will loose this thing forever:
https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?59840-Bakery-Story-Game-Guide&p=1413679&viewfull=1#post1413679


moreover, when you start on android, it is also possible that you will not have several recipes, appliances and decorations that was released with previous android versions.
(iOS updates are automatical, and all stuff added with them. but android had to download new versions to get them).
however, if you already bought that stuff, you will still have it in your inventory - you just wdnt be able to buy more.

you can check android versions list and compare wht you have / wht you aready mastered, etc:
https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?98579-BAKERY-STORY-Android-Versions-List


other things are pretty much the same. android have same login feature, so you only need to know your s8 id and password to it.
(however, do not rush to login. since it's new device, you can download bakery story, enter, and set up new s8 id and password, and to add your old account as a neighbor. i call it "spare account" - cd be helpful in sending gifts / answering requests when you need it :))

I have been playing RS and BS on a very old iPad for a few years. I just got a
new iPad and would like to transfer the games to the new device. I hope I can do
this because my old iPad is registered in my husband?s name and the new iPad is
registered in my name. I have done this with other devices, (with devices in my name),
but that was with the help of Team Lava. If anyone can let me know how to transfer
the games, I would truly appreciate it. Thanks very much.

Well, I checked out how to transfer my game to a new device. The info is very clear and informative. I guess I have a problem that simply is due to my old iPad. I never created a password for this game, since I never expected that I would need to transfer to a new device. Now that I want to do this, I want to create a password. However, (and again, this is due to my old iPad), when I click on the Help button, the game closes. I have tried many times, and the same thing happens each time. I can open the game to play, but clicking on that button closes the game. I really do want to transfer the game and I was wondering if I can do it without a password. I have all the other necessary information. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank very much for taking the time to read this. Hope some can help me with this.

According to my game, there is another route you can take but I don't understand it myself, lol. As I was thinking over your predicament I was going through my game options on my iPad to see if I could find a workaround for you to create a password. Sadly, I didn't find one for creating a password, but I when I hit the "Help/FAQ" button on my iPad, I saw these three tabs at the bottom. The first says "Forums," the middle says "Transfer Info" and the last says "Contact Us." I naturally clicked on "Transfer Info" and here's the pop-up I got:

47763

But, like I said, I'm not sure how you would go about using either Game Center or Facebook to transfer as I always did it the password way. I imagine you would login to Facebook via the "Settings" in the game on your old device, then when you open the game on your new device log in to FB on that one as well. I've done this for other games, but not any s8 games so I can't say for sure. I don't think trying the FB login would mess anything up if wanted, but don't try anything you aren't comfortable with; I'd feel awful if my advice set you back in any way.

Perhaps a Mod or another member could explain how this works in detail?

I'm afraid you definitely need a password. I would strongly recommend all players set a password just in case they lose their device. Please contact Support via support form (http://support.storm8.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) and select "Account recovery/Account question" category. Let the Agent know that you were unable to set the password and you want to transfer your account to another device. You can choose to transfer them yourself or have the Agent do it for you, after your password is set.
