I just downloaded it. It's new ranks. It worked for me!

It disappeared off my game manager, so I wasn't able to click into it.

I am heart afraid to uninstall Midnight Castle as I lost my whole game, losing 572,200 gold coins and 2070 diamonds, along with numerous pets, eggs and inventory.  I did email Elephant Games and they said they would restore it as best they could.  That was November 2021 and I'm still waiting.  Having to start again from the beginning and having now reached level 73, there is no way whatsoever that I will uninstall this game.  I absolutely couldn't bear to have to start all over again for the 3rd time.  I'll just have to do without the upgrade.

Would you believe - I don't actually know how to?  Technophobe!

There is a thread here -- somewhere  that tells how to do it. Sorry can't find it right now.

I have cc'd Aegram on this post, she should know where it is and get back to you.

Thanks AEgram if you can help!

Back your game up. -- is what TLB2 said.

In reply to your comment that you don't know how.......there is NO WAY TO BACK UP YOUR GAME.

On YOUR computer, there is a hidden folder (use Google to find out how to unhide them) called AppData that's in your Computer User account. The path to the files on your computer is AppData\Roaming\Elephant Games\Midnight Castle. .......Inside that folder will be another folder (content) and three files. Without special software, you cannot open two of these files to determine what's inside. The logfile.txt doesn't really tell you much that novices can understand. Perhaps those with programming experience understand. 

That said, those files on YOUR computer only contain your user ID and your friends. When you launch the game, the game server then delivers your game to you based on the ID. The file from your computer then displays your friends within your game.

All the rest of the game files -- your level progress, inventory, pets, amulets, event floating objects, coinage, diamonds, shards, ......E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G except your friends is housed on the Big Fish Game Server. .....IF something goes wrong when the data is sent to that game server and doesn't arrive, IF their game server has a hiccup, IF you get a message that there was a problem with your game save........your game is lost....gone...kaput.    And, there's not one single thing you can do to rectify that loss.

However, if YOUR COMPUTER has an issue with not getting a download, if the game as you play it on your computer isn't placing items in the appropriate former locations, if something doesn't work right during your game play.......Big Fish CAN resolve those issues because all the relevant files are on THEIR SERVER.

Thank you both for your help.  The original problem of losing my whole game was definitely an Elephant Game problem and I suspect the disappearance of the download was not the fault of my computer.  Looks like I'm just stuck without the upgrade.  Thanks anyway,
