bilibili Server Registration Edit

For the login screen there are two important buttons

Color coded to : Green - Recommended, Yellow - Crowded, Red - Full
(Note. Your data will only be saved on the server you registered on, so only login to said server)
- Enter game button - Login/Enter registration button
4. After selecting a server and tapping the enter game button, a popup should appear
4.1 Login Edit
If you have an existing bilibili account, then use it here. If not, click register.

4.3 Account Registration Edit
Enter your desired account name (This is not your in-game name) and password and register
- If it gives you a popup saying "帐户名已存在" then the username already existed
After registration there will be a few popups with your account name and you should be returned to the very first one with your login details already input, all you need to do then is just tap login to enter the game.
- If you get a token error popup, set your time to Beijing/GMT+8 time, this is needed as client needs to sync with server time
After successfully logging in with your new account this screen should appear -
This is where you enter your desired in-game name / Commander name
This name CANNOT be changed later.
Registration to Original serversEdit
I've never made an Original account before, so here's one of our Discord member's guide to make one: Click here for more info
CRITICAL WARNING: THERE IS A KNOWN BUG WITHIN THE APP STORE PERTAINING TO BILLING ADDRESSES IF YOU EVER WISH TO JOIN THE ORIGINAL SERVERS, MEANING THAT APPLE FORCES YOU TO DECLARE YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION, WHICH IS KIND OF STUPID SINCE THE GAME IS FREE, AND YOU DON'T NEED SUCH FOR A FREE-TO-PLAY PLAYER (ASSUMING YOU'RE NOT A PAY-TO-WIN PLAYER :D) . YOU CAN CREATE A CHINESE iOS ACCOUNT, HOWEVER, DOWNLOADING THE GAME IS A NO GO AND STILL FORCES YOU TO CONTACT APPLE SUPPORT FOR NOTHING BECAUSE ITS BUGGED. FOR NOW, THE ONLY OTHER WAY IS TO FIND A FRIEND WITH THE GAME IN AN APPLE DEVICE AND REGISTER FROM THERE.
IF YOU DID GET THE GAME FOR SOME REASON THEN LUCKY YOU. CONTINUE TO THE LINK ABOVE FOR THE GUIDE.
Re: Critical warning. You need to create an account via the workflow triggered by attempting to install a free app while logged out. It's the only way you'll see the 'None' option during payment setup. If you make an account first, you'll be forced to enter payment.
Additional Warning: if the images illustrating the email registration process on IOS is too vague and isn't informative enough, please contact the Admins or the original Guide poster to repost the Google-Doc with coherent highlights on each image: firstly, of what to choose to enter a viable email and WHERE to put it, step by step.
REVISION GUIDE FOR IOS:
As with the Android Registration Guide, signing up for the IOS version of Girls Frontline is pretty standard fare. Though there are certainly its particular hurdles one has to bypass, keep this in mind!
The most important thing is having your Apple ID set to China. However, people who have Apple IDs that still have store credit left over, you're out of luck since region-changing is easily prevented on said Apple ID. So it's best to have a fresh email and password on hand, 'cause you're gonna need to make a new Apple ID just for this, sorry folks!
As long there is no active Apple ID currently signed in on your device, you can follow these steps
First, go to GF's official mobile website (http://gf.ppgame.com/web/mobile/index.html) and select the white IOS icon through your IOS device's browser. This will direct you into the GF app in the App Store.
While there please click on the 'Get' button, and it'll attempt to download the app, before giving you the option to "Use an existing Apple ID" or "Create New Apple ID."
Please select the "Create New Apple ID," as it'll give you the option to select the country and bypass any mandatory billing information requirements since you're downloading a free app and can choose the 'None' option in the Payment Type menu in the following later page while creating your new Apple ID.
Since you'll also be needing to input actual addresses situated in China, you can use the sites below to find a street for the address option. Just make sure the ZIP/Postal Code and Area Code is correct for that region or Province you choose.
For example, if you can input Jiangsu as Region, and select Shanghai as your Province -- then the ZIP code would be 200000 and the Area Code for the needed phone number is 21. (by the by, the rest of the phone number can be made, as long as the Area Code is correct.)
Now, assuming you successfully past through the rigorous stuff, finally installed Girls Frontline and allowed it to patch to the most recent version, the actual registration is quite simple in-game as illustrated below.
Just remember to select a server that isn't in the red, so select a server color-coded yellow or if possible green, if there is one available, then select the yellow tab below the server listing.
And there ya have it -- afterwards, you will get an e-mail from Digitalsky shortly on your Apple ID's email to activate an inbox, just click on the blue button to confirm for activation.
