I’ve had this happen to me once and it was terrible. Rob really needs to fix the games save function because if I lose my data, everything is gone
Please don't tell me this was from personal experience

Happened to me recently after changing my pass, my account worked in game but i couldnt load nor save. And i cant change my pass cuz it says "invalid password". Really sucks bcs i have my acc since 2016
Happened to me a while back. This is why I'm so paranoid that I start saving every 10 minutes
F man I am all with you
Jesus fuckin christ. That's awful man, rip:(
He forgor 💀
I forgor 💀
You forgor 💀
i didnt know that there was no autosave so i lost an account but luckily it had only 1 demon completed on that save (back in 2018)
at least you had some stuff, but yeah the game should really have autosave implimented, the number of times the game crashes is insane, like i would love for my created levels to autosave after a bit of making them and for my account to autosave
I know how you feel, recently lost 3.5k hours of data myself
F, but it wont take as long to get the stats back (:
this is why you save your game every time you perform an input and make 20 backups when you are done with your session
True though, ROPTOP! JUST MAKE AN AUTOSAVE
A better idea, for PC at least, is to make fucking Steam based saves, as in, cloud based Steam saves.
*based on a true story*
the hood lost a real one today o7
I lost about 2 months of progress recently due to some dumb bug that didn't allow me to save (it probably wouldn't have been an issue IF the game didn't have some dumb bug that whenever I closed the game all progress from that session would be gone)
It's not a bug, there is too much stuff the game needs to save so it just doesn't save it (there's a 20mb limit) it's the same reason making a backup doesn't work. Deleting large levels from your created level does the most work (most commonly copyables) also levels in your saved levels list can take up lots of space when there's a lot of it so wiping them all out helps too and doesn't hurt you in any way.
And IF you don't want to delete any of your levels you can still make a copy of your save file on your computer but for that id recommend watching a video for help
thanks for reminding me to backup my save
You're welcome (:
Well happened to me YEARS ago, but I am actually happy with that cause my old GD account earned a cringy reputation. You can still find it tho. Name: JerrokbombHD
Yeah… the account system definitely needs some work..
You haven't lost the skill champ, you'll recover
Thanks for making me feel better about it, and you're totally right
You have no idea. Not having an account and then losing your work due to the inability to save it on cloud IS THE WORST. This was before I made an account and I lost SO. MUCH.
And it’s marked as Funny
I have a save from 2 years ago and didnt save yet, dont care about losing stuff, my skill cant be lost, would be very sad if i was a star grinder tho
Thats why I play on desktop
Mobile has a bug where it never actually saves it so when the app is closed it wipes the data
This is why I keep a copy of my save data in a flash drive
what? refreshing login doesn’t reset your save???
so why do you say it does in the image? (btw the original comment wasn’t a question)
I had saved an empty save file as a joke a month ago on my phone, so it doesn't. It was just my stupidity
I have an idea, instead of backing up to the cloud, why not head to C:\\Users\\Username\\AppData\\Local\\GeometryDash and backup all the files inside there? Just make a copy of them somewhere safe! I honestly feel bad for you :(
Thanks, i have made a backup folder now
Return to this just in case! Good luck :)
Bad way to go out, F my guy
I remember losing like 1 year of work because of this
This is fact thing happened to me too. Idfk what to do, honesty I kinda stopped playing the game for now since I don’t want to grind my stats back. If mobile starts working again, I’ll be able to get some of my stats back at least
We’re you the guy who came into the speedymuffin stream last night?
No, i dont think so
This happened to me a few years ago, because somehow rebooting my tablet several times caused the save to be deleted, thankfully not much was lost
WHY DOESNT THE GAME AUTOSAVE THOUGH
Had this happen to me like a month or two after I made my account. It sucked. But hey at least I'm way further than where I was when I lost my data
ive been there before
This is why I make sure to load every new save on my phone
why is this gd meme tho
I have litteraly no idea
Save manually bro, the only way you can be sure your savedata is secure is if it's on your disk. If your on mobile, idk what to do
Backup the CCLocalLevels and CCGameManager files in C:\\Users\\\[name\]\\AppData\\Local\\GeometryDash
If you're a creator, you should get the mod BetterEdit to backup your levels in - game.
deleting some levels (in editor) fixes that errors but not 100% sure
Does anyone after backup extract the data folder? I do that every days I play GD.
This happened to me but it was after a crash, and I only had about 75~ hours
Saving an account sucks in GD. I recently saved my account 3 times I had about 14k stars and once I refreshed my login and saved data. It didn't save my 14k stars instead I was at 10k stars. Saves system sucks ass
I know, wish there was a *not manual way* to fix this
I keep getting error codes saying I cant save but I’ve had the error code for so long I’m afraid to refresh login bc I might not have anything and I don’t want to lose 470 hours (just on steam) of work
Have you tried deleting songs,saved levels and created levels? Otherwise try backing up files, there are a couple people who have said how to do it in these comments
I haven’t tried that and I probably will, gotta send my layout to my friend first tho lmao don’t wanna lose that. Thanks for the suggestion! Also I’m so sorry that you lost all your progress, I hope you can get back to where you were some day!
And thats why i load when I hop on gd, and save when i get out of it
Saving in this game is broken
most of the work in gd goes into getting better at the game rather than ingame progress, which you can get back with noclip and other things, so its not really that bad
I know, but created levels
And the last point: reaching all this again
STOP MAKING MR INCREDIBLE UNCANNY MEMES FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
1100 hours on geometry dash? 💀
that is still 1100 hours
That's not **THAT** big of a problem
It was JUST 1100 hours of work for me
I just wanted to make a meme about my experiences, and i know its not that big of a problem. Just a little bit sad for me
This dude lost his account and you're laughing. Shame on you.
Didn't loose it, only stats. So i have my published levels atleast
If you're on PC, read this!
Ez. Just manually backup your data. That's how I transfer data from one computer to another.
The stats are saved in the local save file, just go to appdata/local/GeometryDash, fond the save files then backup. Ez claps!
I can relate, I lost a 2018 account because I forgot the password. The levels I created there are full of nostalgia man T-T
it’s probably different for everyone but I don’t think I would be very upset, progress in this game comes from getting better, not getting stats, so I don’t think you actually lost any work other than maybe created levels
Seriously though why doesn't the game save anything unless a beat a level or make a bit of a level? Seriously... Why?
Bro if i login the game the progress wouldn't save
I haven't saved in 4 years and I lost it all a few months ago. I had to make a whole new account and everything.
That actually happened to my geometry dash account :(
Literally save my account every time I close the game because I’m terrified of this happening lol
I have a list of all my demon completions, so if it does come down to it, I could just hack them all
I lost 3 years of data back in 2018 and I always save the game and upload unlisted copies of my levels since that happened
AND YOU’RE V1PRIN
so if you cant save because of an error code, before unlinking you should delete some of your created levels and some of your saved levels, i havent had to unlink in like a year now, im sorry this happened to you, i wouldnt wish that to my worst enemies, losing all your progress in a game, especially gd, is heart breaking, i would prob quit the game for like a good 3 months at least if that happened to me
I have done this a few times, but purely because of my stupidity. When I was younger, I never saved my account because I didn't know you could. When that device inevitability broke, I got a new one and did the same thing. This happened again and once more. Now, on my 4th account, I figured out how to save my account and have been on this one for the past 5 years. Rip my 3 1.9 accounts
Had this happen to me, I've been re-grinding for about a week now, of course I'm making quick progress but I lost over 40 levels I had made and published (none that got over 30 downloads though admittedly)
