  • Android - Game Cache (How to use Game cache in Android)



    Hello friends today I am going to tell you about Game Cache..
    What is game cache and How to use it in your android phone ?
    Many of you , on seeing Game Cache with a game leave the game and think who will download this Game cache , what will happen if it will not work ,my 150-200 MB will be wasted .. So I will not download the game.....

    So today I will tell you What is Game Cache? ,Why is it needed and How to use it ?



    so starting with ---
    What is game Cache
    Cache is a part of game that consist of Music, Videos and Image, usually large files.We need it to run the game properly. Usually users don't want to download such big file in one go so they can download the game and game cache separately .


    How to use it ??

    For better understanding I am taking example of an Android game CSR racing

    Size:- Game (35.2 MB) and Cache (117.1 MB)

    so



    For this game you need to download the game and game cache (I am attaching the download links)

    Game (Download link)
    Cache (Download link)
    Credits for game -android.mob.org

    Cache Directory- For this game the directory for the cache is  [ sdcard/Android/obb ] , For different games this will be different, the directory is usually given in the Game description

    1- So you have to download the Game and cache to your pc 
    2- Install the game 
    3- Copy the cache (ZIP) file to your phone
    4- Now you have to use File Explorer to extract the cache to the specified directory (you can use any File explorer as - (Xplore)
    5- Open the "obb" folder, where you've extracted the cache archive. There would be a folder (1353608252_com.gameloft.android.anmp.gloftzrhm) with subfolder (com.gameloft.android.ANMP.GloftZRHM). Move the subfolder (com.gameloft.android.ANMP.GloftZRHM) and its contents to the "obb" folder, and delete the remaining empty folder (1353608252_com.gameloft.android.anmp.gloftzrhm)
    6- That's all. Now you can play the game

    Errors
    1- If the game asks for additional files to download that means you have put the Cache in wrong directory

    Note:- When you Remove the game the cache is not deleted automatically you have to delete it manually

    Thanks for reading .......

    If you have any problem you can comment here or you can also use contact us page to send your query privately. . .. ... . ..  I will be happy to help you .

    2. Hi Vikrant,

      I have Samsung Galaxy Core with Jelly Bean 4.1.2. I tried to install Asphalt 7 after downloading from torrent. It contained 2 files- com.gameloft.android.GAND.GloftA7HP and Asphalt 7.apk. I installed the apk file, after that I moved the com. folder to SdCard0>Android>Data folder, Then I tried to run the game from the Game icon, but it is showing downloading options. There is no folder named obb.

      1. Hello Tathagata
        Ok you have downloaded it from here, I guess http://thepiratebay.sx/torrent/7475736/Asphalt_7_Heat_for_Android_with_SD_files

        According to the Up loader the directory for the game i.e sdcard/android/data is correct.. see that you have copied the "com.gameloft.android.GAND.GloftA7HP" folder to sdcard/android/data ,not the files of the folder ....

        so try copying the whole folder and run the game, the game should run correctly but after that if the problem persists may be the apk file has some problem or the SD card files have some problem ....
        Tell me if any other problem persists

      1. Hello Lovepreet.... As you say that there are no sub folder after extracting the cache file . Check whether some files are there or not may be some error has occurred during the download or Extraction of the ZIP ....Check the size of the extracted folder that must be around 117MB to check that all files are there ..Check these things and then tell whether it works or not ..

    27. Hi
      I recently got a LG G2 phone which does not have an SD card, therefore the SDCard/... file path does not exist. I do however have a file path Android/Data... I basically want to know where I should put the cache data (the obb file) since I can't seem to find a path that work. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I search the web everywhere but can't seem to find an answer.
      Thank you!

        Hmm. and the answer to your problem:
        I want to tell you that In android OS external sd cards are named as extsdcard and internal storage as SDcard0 as default ,....
        the game cache goes to the obb folder inside the android folder and android folder exist inside the Internal memory of the device...

        You need to look for the Android/obb inside the Internal storage of your device ...

        and I am happy to help you ... keep visiting .. :)

    29. Thanks for the quick reply!

      So for example, taking Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, they specify the path as: sdcard/Android/obb/, meaning mine will be under (internal storage)/android/obb/(folder containing obb file) ?
      So the only folder I'll create is the /obb/ folder since I don't have one yet... ?

      ReplyDelete
    30. Sorry for all the messages!

      I saw I already had an obb folder which I expect to be the correct one as it's under Android and contains data of another game. I did, however, try it with Kingdom rush and then after I install the .apk they tell me "Download failed because you may not have purchased the app". Can't understand why it's not working...

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. Hmmm... I will suggest you to download a small apk game that comes with game cache and try it because there may be a problem with the Kingdom rush...
        Try any small game and then reply ... :)

        Delete
    31. Yes, I tried it and other games which contains game cache seems to work fine. The problem has to be with the Kingdom Rush. I'll just look for it somewhere else and try again. :)
