Ren'Py 7.3.5 Android 29 Update

#1 Post by PyTom » Sun Aug 16, 2020 3:53 pm

Hello, everyone.

The Google Play policies require that new apps target Android 10 (Api Level 29), and that if the application supports billing, it has to support Google Play Billing library 3. These changes are now required for new applications, and if you're updating your application, the changes will go into effect on November 1st.

I've made a new release of RAPT, the Ren'Py Android Packaging Tool, for Ren'Py 7.3.5, to make sure that you can release application while I finish Ren'Py 7.4. Since I don't have the ability to make new releases of 7.3, I've made the new RAPT available as a download: ...

To install the RAPT update:

1) If you already have RAPT installed, rename the renpy-7.3.5-sdk/rapt/ directory to "rapt-28", to make a backup of it.

2) Download the update, and place into renpy-7.3.5-sdk/ (this is the directory that has renpy.exe,, and in it).

3) Unzip the update. Make sure that it doesn't add renpy-7.3.5-rapt-android-29 to the front of each path - you should get renpy-7.3.5-sdk/rapt/ back again. If you see a directory named renpy-7.3.5-rapt-android-29, then copy renpy-7.3.5-rapt-android-29/rapt into the renpy-7.3.5-sdk/ directory.

4) If you had RAPT installed already, copy rapt-28/android.keystore over to rapt/.

5) Start the launcher, and tell Ren'Py to install the SDK.

Do these five steps, and you should be ready to release applications that target Android 10 and Google Play Billing 3.

Please let me know if you have any questions, if you have trouble getting this working, or even if it works fine for you.

Alright, this is fast. Thank you

Edited on August 27: I've successfully published on Playstore with this version. So far works well and no problem!
