"Create Backup" broken on iPhone/iOS #54

Backups Bug v2.2

@JanJastrow JanJastrow commented Nov 19, 2019


I'm trying to export my settings/save games with the build-in function "Create Backup", but I'm running into issues.
It shows an field with the json data to copy, but there are multiple problems:

  • It's very hard to copy everything since iOS does not mark everything if you tap inside the input box (it only selects from the end to the first forward-slash) -- maybe some JS would help to select everything
  • The data is incomplete. It seems like there is a 1000 character limit for the data in an input box, so it's impossible to export the data.
    (at least my data is incomplete (json) and it would not let me import the data on a desktop browser; also my data is exactly 1000 characters, which is unlikely to be an coincident.)
    Maybe there is another way to display/download the data like with a <textarea> or <a href"…" download>

How to Reproduce

Settings -> Storage -> Create Backup

Device Information

i am having the same issue.
iphone x 13.3.1, using safari.
The export backup, only contains a fraction of the characters needed in safari.
I am therefore stuck, with playing from safari on my phone. I would very much like to transfer it to my pc, so i can sit better, and use real keyboad buttons.

This is not the case in chrome or firefox. But in chrome and firefox, there is some issues regarding copying the data, and i cannot save the generated file, from chrome or firefox.
