Yup. My if that called the function in true was wrong.

For some reason my code is always returning the fail safe number. I just noticed that it wasn't actually working correctly.

public int readScores(){
			SharedPreferences data = getSharedPreferences("LIFETIME_GAME_DATA_2", Activity.MODE_PRIVATE);
			int bestScore = data.getInt("BEST_SCORE", 3);
		    Log.d("Best Score", String.valueOf(bestScore));
			return bestScore;
		public void saveGame(int score){
			SharedPreferences data = getSharedPreferences("LIFETIME_GAME_DATA_2", Activity.MODE_PRIVATE);
			if (score > readScores())		
				data.edit().putInt("BEST_SCORE", score).apply();

This is how my code looks now. I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Hello TechnoGoth. Ive read the link you posted a few times but it didn't seem to help.  The


 class seems to work perfectly though.

As it is Android, did you your permissions include the right to modify storage?


Hey frob. All the documentation that I can find says that when saving to internal storage you don't need to declare permissions. I went ahead and tried the code with and without perms when it wouldn't work though.

No gaming platform is dying.

Well, except maybe BlackBerry OS as a gaming platform...



This made me laugh.
