First of all right click on Ren'py and click run as admistrator. (Some times a permission error occurs so I tend to run Ren'py as admistrator just to avoid this error while building my packages.) Then click on Android and install the SDK.
You may encouter the following error:
Code: Select all
Traceback (most recent call last): File "game/android.rpy", line 247, in call File "/home/tom/ab/x64lucid-deps/install/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 679, in __init__ File "/home/tom/ab/x64lucid-deps/install/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 896, in _execute_child WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified
Open up the file where Ren'Py is installed. Then open the file titled "rapt"
There is a zip file titled "android-sdk-r23_r23-windows". You need to manually unzip this file. Once unziped copy and replace the contents of the "android-sdk-r23" file.
Open the "android-sdk-r23" file then open "tools" there should be a file called android (or android.bat) If not go back to the zip file open the file and manually extract the android file from the zip file and place it in the "tools" file.
Go back to to the Ren'py window and reinstall the SDK. It should now work.
The configure step is easy. Just follow the instructions. Make sure you only use ASCII characters while filling out the options.
The code version has to be a number. Don't put any letters or words in like I did. It will cause an error.
The most commen reason why the android build fails is because one of your files contain non-ASCII characters. Go back an and check your files and your account name for any characters that may not be ASCII characters.
