FIFA 14 requires a Windows Phone with 1GB of RAM to run, so unfortunately the Lumia 520 will not run this game. If you search for FIFA 14 in the Store app, it won't show up as games or apps that require 1GB of RAM are hidden. If you happen to open a direct link to the game, either on your phone or via the Windows Phone website, you should see a message ...

Games can be pinned to the start screen - simply go to the Xbox Live games app, swipe to the collection tab (if required), and press and hold your favourite game, until the context menu appears -- the first option allows you to "pin to start" - you can also choose to add a review to show in the marketplace or uninstall if you wanted.

Speed of game is directly proportional to the Class of sd card that we're using. Check the class of your sd card, mine is 10, games work good but there are occasional lags but they dont last long (the lags of course). Sd card with classes 4 or 6 probably creates worst experience. Always buy a sd card with good Class. Look at the below ...

Starting with WP8.1, some games back up their data (usually including player progress) to Microsoft's servers. However, not even all new games do this, and ones written before WP8.1 (or written to support older OS versions) don't even have the option (short of asking you to enter your OneDrive credentials or something). There are options, but they're all ...

As long as the developer doesn't support this officially you can't play the game on Windows Phone / Mobile. Microsoft has removed the Android subsystem from Windows 10 Mobile (previews) so there's no currently no way to run apps that weren't built for Windows. Your best bet is certainly contacting the developer.

The best way is to ask developers of the game about that. There exist a small chance that somebody will do reverse-engineering of API and create Windows Phone app without permission of authors. But it is very hard and risky

As far as I know, both of those games require 1 GB of RAM(1), and the Lumia 520 only has 512 MB. So that's the reason you're not able to find them in the Store. This should be standard behaviour - apps that aren't compatible with your phone for whatever reason don't show up in searches. You can always search for the app at WindowsPhone.com, or open the ...

It seems that a different Microsoft account was set up as the primary account on your phone. If you don't know this account then the only way to change our to your Microsoft account is to do a factory reset of your phone.

Just an update in case anyone comes across this question: as many likely know now, WP8 has since updated the ability to backup sms/calls/settings by default - you simply need to turn on the feature in the backup menu within the settings hub; backups will be stored with the associated M$ account, and can be restored by linking up the account with your new/...

Windows phone dev center is really the best place to start. There's a good, step by step guide to the whole process lifecycle. Then when you have specific questions jump over to StackOverflow and research/ask questions there. Generally there are two types of app: XAML based and XNA. XAML based apps are the types of apps with lists, text boxes and buttons. ...

The WiFi LAN Game is for when you are both connected to the same WiFi network. If you're not connected to the same network, this option won't work for you - there may be an alternate game that allows playing across the Internet, but this particular game doesn't appear to support that.

WP8.x and W10M encrypt the contents of the WPSystem folder (where apps and their data are stored) using encryption keys that are specific to the SD card. This is not, so far as I know, using the built-in security features of SD cards (WP7.x did this, but I don't believe 8.x or later do). However, there's not currently any known way to extract or reverse-...

This error code is associated with unavailability of service. This is probably due to an error with the Microsoft Store on the mobile device itself. Restart the phone. Sync your Microsoft account. Check time and date of your mobile is it correct? Also check regions and regional formats. Also, make sure your default applications installation location is the ...

Ok so I searched stuff in my phone and I found the "storage check" in the settings. It showed that I had 2GB of system BUT apparently what was taking so much space were the temporary files! If you go to details you can see Temporary files and you just have to tap on clear

That is unusually high. Running 8.1 on my 1320 and I Am on 2.61gb. Almost same figure I had when I was running 8.0. I would recommend to do a backup of personal files and go for a hard reset or using Nokia Care suite to reflash your entire system

That seems unusually high - on a Nokia Lumia 1020 running 8.0.10517.150, "system" is only using 2.41 GB for me. Installing other language packs could increase that figure, but I wouldn't expect that figure to almost double.

Unfortunately there is no way to backup your game or app data (as of Windows Phone 8 Update 3). According the official documentation, only the following is backed up (if enabled in Settings > Backup) The list of apps you've installed on your phone. Your call history. Your theme colour. The accounts you've set up on your phone. Your Internet Explorer ...

Croatia isn't on the list, sorry. There will not be an Xbox Live tile on phones running out of Croatia. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/countries . If you want to supply feedback to Microsoft on this I've got a number of feedback routes for WP listed on this page - http://dfwiki.devfish.net/technology.Microsoft-feedback-routes.ashx .

When in doubt, just rename them first, adding _ to there extension or something similar. Of course, this would suppose you still can obtain access to the device in case of failure. But none of these are required for you to reboot the device and/or launch ActiveSync, so I don't really see a problem.
