Save Options Edit
Below the game and interface options listed above are the Cloud and Save functions.
- Cloud Options: This is a double security: RG stores a copy of your progress "in the clouds". RG is a timely game, losing progress hurts! (Registering will reward you the Clouded secret trophy. )
- Overwrite - Overwrites your cloud save with the current game you are playing.
- Restore - Restores your last cloud save.
- Save Options:
- Save: Click here before you close the window, to not lose the few seconds of progress you might have done between the auto-saves.
- Export & Import See below
Making Back-Ups EditThe Import and Export functions are a-must-use! They enable to make backups of your game progress.
- To make a backup:
Click on the "Export" button, paste your clipboard into a file, and save.
- To Import the backup:
Click on import button and paste the save-code you previously made.You will want a backup when something goes wrong:
- All your progress has disappeared! (This has unfortunately happened so many times.)
- Or it can be nice to know you can always undo when you are stepping in to unknown fields and not sure if what you are doing is right.
- Or maybe you might simply miss-click and max-Buy excavations?
- Enables to use the RG tools.
- Offline builds can be exported into a file and left to progress.
- If you have some save files of different progress stages: Check something at a earlier stage of the game. Old save files from the very beginning of RG have never caused any problems (at least up til now).
Hard Reset Edit
Erases everything! To use if you wish to totally reset and restart the game from zero. Gifts are linked to your Kongregate account, and you will not lose them when hard resetting.
- ↑ Prior to the UI overhaul, RG v1's save, cloud save, import, and export options were grouped within a tab along with the soft-reset buttons. A screenshot if the previous UI of the save functions can be found here. Note: Screenshots of the previous UI can be seen browsing this wikia's image file histories. To do this, click on an image > more info. Below the actual image, click on the "File History" tab.
