    Yep. All tje srd plugins work fine on windows because they mostly have been made for desktop.
    What I'm trying to say to you that most of this plugins, including these two, are not made for work on Android. With or without Android MV client.

    I was banging my head against the wall for three days, because the gradle wouldn't build, and I couldn't access the folders in app. I fixed it eventually by downloading a previous version of Android Studio. Once I did that, it was easy.

    This release is not compliant with the Google Play 64-bit requirement

    The following APKs or App Bundles are available to 64-bit devices, but they only have 32-bit native code: 13.

    From August 1, 2019 all releases must be compliant with the Google Play 64-bit requirement.

    Include 64-bit and 32-bit native code in your app. Use the Android App Bundle publishing format to automatically ensure that each device architecture receives only the native code it needs. This avoids increasing the overall size of your app.

    Is there a list of which plugins are suitable for mobile and which are not?

    It's frustrating to have to test it on mobile everytime I add a new plugin.

    Hey guys, first of all thanks for all the great stuff you've done here!

    I have a small question for you:
    Do you think it's possible to add a background image directly in Android Studio to "fill" the black spaces left and right to the game?

    Again, thank you!

    Crosswalk is 32-bit only. Do not use Crosswalk (this is already the advice I give to everyone, don't use Crosswalk).

    The WebView version has no native code, so there is no 32-bit dependency (or 64-bit, the Java Dalvik byte-code is architecture independent).

    If you get this issue and you're using WebView then you'll need to report this bug to Google.


    That's a pretty good idea, actually. However, it can be achieved in RPG Maker MV via JavaScript, so it's not something that needs to be done for the MV Android Client.

    So with your Client in WebView mode there's no problem with Google Agoust Update?

    First of all, thank you so much for this.
    I did this, then put the apk file in Google drive.
    However, when I open the link, my phone starts downloading the file, instead of just starting the game.
    What did I do wrong?

    Nothing, you have to download the .apk then install it.
    If your app is not signed, it's possible that you need to allow unknown sources from your phone settings.

    Hi people!

    I am uploading an app.bundle to google play store. And during the process, i have some doubts.

    I have to make a new key(in android studio) for every new project(other games) that I will put on google play?
    Can I rename the folder "AltimitSystems-mv-android-client-e298b88" after I extract it from ZIP?

    I haven't had time to read through this thread yet, but has Xilefian or anyone else here expressed interest in payment for coding an Admob plugin that works with the client and a tutorial to go along with it? I've been trying unsuccessfully to find someone who's interested in the Classifieds board for awhile now.

    Hey everyone I have a little issue. I followed this guide 100% and have been able to export to android and turned into an apk and play on my mobile. The issue is that the sound effects that I created/added to the game will not play. Every other sound works fine and even custom animations I made that include multiple uses of the built in sound effects play fine its just the ones that I added. The only plug-in I am using is SRD_CameraCore and GALV_CamControl so nothing relating to sounds or gameplay in general.

    When I added these files I added both the m4a and ogg filetypes to the correct folders and when I exported to windows a little playable demo everything worked just fine. Every sound effect when unlocked plays flawlessly. How would I fix this for android releases? I went and checked the files and they both will play on my pc and sound correct and in RPGMMV they work as well they just wont play at all when I export to android. I also checked the folders after exporting and the files are there under the audio se folder as .rpgmvm files so I know it tried to use something...

    Try not to use encryption for Android. I think the .rpgmvm files is the extension when you encrypt files in deployment.

    Hey I tried what you said and redeployed Without encrypting and for good measure I also left exclude unused files just to be safe. After remaking the apk and playing through the first 30 minutes to level up I tried the skills again and the custom sounds still wont play. The rest of the skills are fine and anything that was built into rmmv like the music and sound effects work fine. For some reason it just wont play the sounds that I added.

    Sorry to hear that!
    Well, I can't find a reason for that... I see you put both .ogg and .m4a files. Do they also have the same name?
    "mymusic.ogg and mymusic.m4a"?

    Also, they have to be equal, include the capitalization of letters. Because Android reads the file different from Windows. Make sure to put these file names without spaces and all with the same capitalization.
    Besides that, I can't think(for now) another thing that you can try to make this work.
