I dunno how to update the game!

#1 Post by BKFeng » Mon Sep 04, 2017 12:05 pm

I already made the first version of my game...
first version:just change the icon and presplash but the story line remains default(which is Eileen speaking)
Then I made a. New version of it:
I started making the story, but when I export the apk(App) and play(update) it in my phone but it remains the same as old version. However,i can play the real version in android debug part... I really need someone to help me on this.
In a nutshell:
I can't update my game app in android but it runs normally in the debug on android! Put on and every one please help me!!!

I may not be able to update my game in the future.... Need Help! :(

Are you sure you've properly reexported the game and coded it so the new things happen?

How did you install the update on your phone? Did you copy the .apk over manually? If so, you are positive you didn't accidentally copy the old export over?

When exporting your game, it is a good idea to immediately go and edit your script and configuration, to bump the "version" by an amount (I use 0.01 for minor changes, 0.1 for large changes and 1 for major changes)

The way I reexport is as follows:
1)reinstall(whatever it is called) the sdk(the first button of the android section
2)configure, I never change the version number (even if I change it to 1.0.1(originally 1.0)
3)export. I cannot find the exported file... Meaning I was just located to the rapt/bin but I can't fine my game's name which should be CatzAdventurers1. 0.1.apk(sth like that) there is just unsigned apk of 1.0.1which can't be downloaded into the phone.

Secondly I am very very sure I made changed in code(as it can be tested in PC)
Which I added:
Bgm in main menu
More stories

But what did appear is just the old version(in phone)

If there is no way to the solution kindly reply me the way how u do to export. If really can't it should be my game/engine problem ,then u are welcomed to email me the engine u r using to export your game successfully at crazyhorsebeh@gmail.com

I just installed it by copying the file to my phone through a USB drive I did change the version code but when I exported the new version of my game(by adding 0.1) I can't find the all in rapt/bin. I only saw the unsigned apk,which can't be installed and run

Try using 'build distributions'?
