Let’s pull out the screwdrivers and tighten some bolts, before you go crazy with no access to Mini Militia.

These will be the major flaws we will go after and find out how to fix them together.
Step first is to remain calm. I know you are desperately waiting for it to starts working. Perform each of the techniques mentioned below to solve the issues.
Server list in Custom List Do no match
Some of the Mini Militia players are facing problems with the server list. The server list in the Custom mode does not match with that of the other player’s list. This mismatch occurs due to the difference in the version number of Mini Militia on both the devices. If you are facing such a problem than you and your friends need to update the application or both of you need to download the same version of Mini Militia. Once both of the devices run on the same build you will find that the server list is exactly the same as of the other players.
With the current version the server list has the following entries:
- Clan Matches
- Battlezone India and India 2
- Team Matches
- Free For All
- New Players
- Battlezone US
- Battlezone England etc.
Clear the Cache and Data
Issue: General method for all issues mentioned above.
Cache is just some small amount of data that the application frequently needs for basic functions. Sometimes due to changes created by the Android OS these cache files may get corrupted. Applications not responding to user input is another ill effect of corrupted cache. Removing these files and letting the application create fresh one may work in rare chances. To clear Mini Militia’s cache go to:
- Locate the “All” tab
- Wait for the list to populate and find “Mini Militia” in the list.
- Tap on “Clear Cache”
If clearing the cache don’t help, try clearing the data as well by tapping on “Clear Data”.
But remember clearing data will remove all your game settings like your purchased store items list, your custom avatar, and temporarily you rank and EXP. The becomes exactly as when you downloaded it.
If clearing cache and data don’t help, it’s time to move on to the next fix.
Move to Internal Memory
Issue: Slow and lagging performance.
The reason why most of the apps prefer internal memory for installation is speed. Generally, SD cards are slower than internal memory thus the CPU has to wait longer to fetch and process data from internal memory. If you have moved the application to SD card, clear some space in internal memory and move it back in.
To do so follow the steps as mentioned in the above method and in place of clearing the cache choose “Move to internal.”
Reinstall Mini Militia or Update the App
Issue: Crashing and unfortunately stopped working.
Sometimes during download and installation process some files may get disrupted. The best solution for such matters is to reinstall the application. Otherwise, there may be an update that did not install, that had major issues resolved. Installing application from 3rd party website may be a cause of the disruption. Install Mini Militia from play store or sites like minimilitia.org and Appsomanics.com.
Issue: Mini Militia is not installing and crashing.
Doodle Army 2: Mini Militia requires Android 3.0 Honeycomb or above to work flawlessly. Any device running on lower version then this won’t be able to support the game. All the permissions need to granted while installing it.
Online Offline Multiplayer lags
Issue: The game hangs too often when playing in Multiplayer Mode.
You must have observed that sometimes during gameplay players bypass you in a flash. Sometimes they hover in mid-air and won’t die on shooting, and after a few seconds, both you and he die. That’s a frustrating moment.
The reason behind this glitch is slow internet connection of your’s over your opponents. Mini Militia requires a constant data rate of ~20 Kbps. When you shoot at your opponent who has a slow connection, he may not report it in his application and before downloading the details of him dying he shoots you. The result of which is both of you loose points.
The solution of this issue is to shot the hanged player enough that he will die after getting the connection and move to other location away from the spot instantly.
Offline Multiplayer lags are caused due to the incapability of the hosting smartphone to handle and manage multiple devices. The solution is to ask a person with a better device than the rest of you to create connection and host. Even though you can connect 12 players but something more than 6-8 will cause lags.
Reset App Preferences
Issues: Connection lost, Login problems and players not found.
Resetting the app preferences with set default settings for all disabled apps, disable app notifications, background data restrictions for apps and any permission restrictions. You will not lose any app data through this method.
How to reset:
- Go to settings
- Scroll down to Installed apps
- Tap on “More”
- Tap on “Rest app preferences”
- Go ahead and click “Rest apps”
1. Factory Data Reset
Doing a Factory reset will make your smartphone get to the initial conditions and setting when you first bought it. Backup & reset will improve your device’s performance for playing Mini Militia.
Important: Performing Factory Data Reset will wipe out your entire data excluding apps, photos, and music. We suggest you back up your device first.
To perform a factory reset, follow these steps:
- Back up your device if you want.
- Tap on settings “gear” button.
- Reach out to “Personal” and tap on “Backup & reset.”
- Read instructions, cross your fingers and tap on “Reset Phone.”
- Allow the device to restart and enjoy lag free Mini Militia.
2. Developers Options tweaking
Developers options let you sneak inside some of the hidden features of Android OS. We will exploit this feature and see if we could get Mini Militia working again.
To enable Developers Options head over to the “About Phone” section in the settings. Next scroll down to “Version” and keep tapping util developers options are enabled.
Now go back and open the Developers option and turn off “Don’t keep activities” is it was enabled already.
3. Server Problems
Sometimes in the quick play and customs section of the game, you keep on seeing “Trying server…”. This happens when you are on a slow speed connection. If you don’t think the connection is the problem and then you might try tweaking your APN settings of your phone. Sometimes the developers may be maintaining the servers for next major update in that case you will not be able to connect to other online Mini Militia players.
4. Game Hacks not working and Hackers Problem
The developers of the game are readily trying to short out all hacked versions of Mini Militia. In that case, some of the hacks may not work for you. The solution is to download the latest versions from minimilitia.org. If you are searching about how to defeat and remove hackers from Mini Militia, then you need to read this article.
Finally, you can also try these methods:
- Turn off power saver as it reduces device performance.
- For smooth operations always start the application after clearing the RAM junk.
Problems related to servers are harder to fix from device end than that related to login and pro pack buying problems.
