    Thumbs up Possible iOS 9 Lockout Problem Solution

    I finally did enough things that I came across something that allows me back in the game. I had tried this suggestion multiple times on both my iPhone 6 and my iPad Air 2 without any success.

    1- Delete the MW App
    2- Sign Out of the Game Center (Do this through Setting, Game Center and Click on your Apple ID and then select Sign Out)
    3- Reboot your device
    4- Install MW App


    Here is what I finally did different. I was curious why the MW app seemed to install so quickly after I deleted it. After doing some research I found you can hide previously purchased items which I believe makes your device to a fresh download of the app. So here are the new recommend steps to take.

    1- Delete the MW App and select Remove Data
    2- Sign Out of the Game Center (Do this through Setting, Game Center and Click on your Apple ID and then select Sign Out)
    3- Reboot your device
    4- Open the App Store and select Purchased on the bottom.
    5- In the Search Box type Modern War
    6- In the Modern War box right slide and select Hide
    7- Now install the MW App again

    This worked for my iPad Air 2 but not my iPhone 6. I'm still working on the iPhone. Hopefully this works for others also. I am extremely interested in hearing if this does help others.

    I'm glad it worked for at least one device.

    First of all, do not update to iOS9 until it's compatible.

    Seems like the lockout is affecting customers differently depending on the device and Game Center set-up.

    One of these workarounds might work for you...
    Good luck until GREE gets a permanent & viable fix!

    3) Using iTunes remove app from device and sync
    4) Using itunes install app onto device and sync again
    5) Play game until it stops working again the repeat

    This worked for me during last lockout as well

    Thanks to the above for their help!


    If you have a different workaround, please post it.
    If none of these work, try them again. Can't hurt and you might get lucky the second time! (ugh, or third time)

    If nothing works after multiple reinstalls, please post your device type and any other info that might help, like if changing accts caused your lockout.

    Lastly, thanks for your patience!
    GREE knows this sucks for us. We want to be tapping, not reinstalling.
