    Hey guys,

    Be sure to check out this video that is posted in the Step-by-step Android Sticky.



    Im not sure what Eclipse is. Its not actually needed but I guess if that works for you go for it.

    I would recommend you install more than just the 4.0 sdk. For example nook publishing I think requires 2.2 I personally installed 2.1-4.0

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    Hello there,

    All these tutorials of yours seems helpful and all, but I have got a problem slightly off topic.
    I just can't find the zipalign file in sdk/tools. Neither is it in the "tool-build"-folder, and I have the latest version of the SDK, API 21. Does anyone know where to find the zipaligner?

    Look in your SDK folder under build-tools and I believe it is in 19.1 they moved it, you can then just direct Gamesalad there, or copy and past it too the tools folder.

    Thank you so much!! It worked! I guess you can expect seeing my game on Google play soon! :D

    Thanks again, @BBEnk!

    Thanks for the vid! I thought I would just write a quick FYI for

    Im not sure what Eclipse is.

    along with this thank you note :)

    Eclipse is an editor, very very useful for creating Java/Android programs (or PHP/C/C++ etc you can download just the support files you need (eg: just for Java) or support files for all languages - that way you have one familiar editor to make all your programs ), it's open source as well and comes with a great set of tools for debugging, testing and so on.

    Not really needed if using GS though as GS does most of the coding the the background and offers users a simplified drag and drop interface.

    Hope that helps :)

    I have followed these directions step by step, Ive watched the video carefully. Yet still when I go to open the APK signer, gamesalad can not find the zipalign. I show it the path and it excepts and signs it, however when I submit the signed APK to google play, it says the file must be zipaligned. Ive spent literally 3 days straight trying to figure this out, redownloaded everything!
