Will my DataStore corrupt if I do this?

Asked by 2 years ago

If I go into a game (we'll call it the main game) and publish it to a different game place so I can test and edit without affecting the main game will it affect the DataStore at all? I haven't really tried this in fear of corrupting the players data.

Yeah, all the datastores will keep in the previous game. Anyway, I heard you somehow can transfer data stores from one game to another. Not sure how, but i think you actually can. Aimarekin 309 — 2y

A data store is shared in a universe ie the main game.You can enable or disable api access stopping changes from replicating to your live game. Though most ppl just use a test data base. User#5423 -10 — 2y

It's actually possible to transfer your stats into another place. The game, "Elemental Battlegrounds" has the ability to do so. Jxemes 75 — 2y

the other place is in the same universe so the data gets shared Operation_Meme 885 — 2y

For this, you should use GetGlobalDataStore. The word says it all. Global Datastore. If you use Global Datastores, as long as you use the same datastore key, your data will async across multiple places. You can use this to transfer your old data.
