I'm not looking to upload to the Google Play store, just play the game from the sd card on the phone. There seems to be no official tutorial on how to do this online, or in the game's engine. How do you export and play your MZ game on Android? Thanks.

Oddly, it seems different from MV. It's not in the documentation or options for deployment...you'd have to do it on a Web server, I suppose.

I took a look at the product description on the Web and Steam stores, and unless it's someplace I don't see, they don't claim that MZ can create games for Android or iOS. It only says the controls are enhanced for touchscreen support, which can be applicable to laptops.

In the deployment options for MZ there is an Android/ios option. Why would it have that option if it isn't playable on those platforms?

@Nico Kaneo It is playable. I've done it before. :rolleyes:

You have to package it yourself.

I'm sorry . . . I know that's a hard pill to swallow that there's not an easier method, but it's probably this way because Google keeps changing things.

Did you ever figure this out? I am wondering the same thing. The lack of online tutorials is disappointing

Is there a tutorial for packaging?

MZ only has the web deployment and this is what I recommend for MV as well although they have other options for Android and iOS but I do not recommend those. I did it for iOS and it should be similar for android. Another developer I know plans on doing an Android tutorial in the next couple weeks so I will post that here too when it is done.

part of the common event help menu I'm working on. I used Yanfly's Common Event Menu to set it up and here's a screen of once you've selected one of the options. This one explains the 6 different battle commands.

You know your room is too tiny for how much stuff you have when it gives you literal insomnia. I just cleared a bunch of stuff out and man it feels good!
