I'm not sure if this is the right board. Oh, well, here goes nothing.


So, I deploy a game for android using RPG Maker MV, and upload it to google play store.


The apk was made by following the method provided in this thread :


forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?/topic/47780-androidios-tldr-converting-your-project-using-the-manual-method/


When I went to up update the apk on google play store, it ask me to update apk version, like this article suggest :


http://developer.android.com/tools/publishing/versioning.html
 


The example that article provide is written on xml or something and the method that I follow is quite different. I suspect that it can be done by tampering with manifest.json file, but I don't know how to do it.


Any help?


Btw, changing the "xwalk_version" didn't help.

Assuming you used the application in the thread you listed, have you tried just changing the version number to something higher than what you put in before?

Yes, I changed it from 1.0.0 into 2.0.0. Trying 1.0.1 are also not helping.


also, the version code displayed are not made of 3 component like the one above. It simply said Version "1", and the article above suggest to change it to version "2", thus I'm sure that 3 component version, "xwalk_version" is not related in this case in any way.

Have you tried compiling the manifest and then building the container manually?

If by compiling the manifest you meant wrote it in an editor, then save it as json file; and building the container manually is compiling it via command prompt; then yes, I already have done it.


Also I don't see why it's matter as the first article's step is just create the same manifest file and send the same code to command prompt. The difference is just that it's automated.

Solved. Turns out you need to put the Version Code manually when compiling via command prompt. If the Version Code is not provided, it will use "1" as it's default value.

I really get the feeling I should be doing regular YouTube videos whenever I make something cool in my game, instead of waiting for massive changes. But not going to lie... I always feel like it's never quite enough to merit an update, until it's a drastic change. :kaoswt:
