    Thunder_Child, I learned soon much from your video =). Thank!

    I followed your instruction to try upload a 0.7 version of my game to iTunes.
    However, when i try click the plus sign to add a built to review for submission,it is stuck in 'processing' .

    Did I miss out or do anything wrong with regards ti this? I noticed yours is immediate and no processing when you upload your demo built for beta testing

    @drizzling let me ask a couple questions to make sure I inderstand what part of the process you are in.

    You created the app in itunes...and filled out the information needed ?

    You used application loader and uploaded a build ?

    When you click to choose a build to submit...this is where it says "processing" ? (i believe this IS what your saying).

    I have seen a build get "stuck" in processing overnight unfortunately. I have also seen build take less than a minute to process. You may need to publish a .8 version in the GS portal using a distribution profile, zip it and try to upload another build...a second one but not the same version number and see if it allows it.

    You also may have to just wait overnight and see if it finishes processing.

    I once waited 2 days and eventually called Apple support. They really didnt help me like I expected (please stop the processing). I had to wait and finally it just disappeared with no finish....I uploaded again and it processed in just a few moments. It an Apple "bug" when this happens.

    So it looks like you have done everything correct. No an issue on your part.

    Thank Thunder_child. I will try upload again soon =). Will keep u update of the process!

    Its my first game so Im at the experimenting stage regarding how to publish a game. Gosh.. It sure is tedious but its so much clearer after watching your video. I felt it really links and fill up my knowledge gap the publishing procedure, making it 'make sense' on the publishing process...

    You noe its one thing just follow blindly and not understanding it at all and another making sense of it and if any changes/updates in future. Your video explained a lot of 'theory' and it sure helps!!

    Do you happen to do any video regarding the submitting in app purchase procedure to apple? I have iap and Im bit intimidated to do it coz Im a noob.. so theres tons of unknown in my mind right now!

    @drizzling I am so pleased to see my viodes have helped you along the way. Most of my videos cover the basics of publishing...not including IAP but @Lost_Oasis_Games has a great video for setting them up in your app...I am not certain about if it includes the itunea portion of that process.
    Here is a link to Fryingbacon_studios website.

    http://fryingbacon.com/

    Ill make a video like this if I can tonight....short and sweet. That happens to be something I myself have needed help on so I am not 100% on that topic as well as others. Also @Lovejoy and @Braydon_SFX have videos.

  • drizzlingdrizzling Posts: 101Member, PRO

    Thats really sweet and helpful of you Thunder_Child =). Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience! Hope all members can come together and sort all these gaps out!!

    I learn so much from this forum than on the Apple site on the publishing process :D
    Hope game salad cookbook will have a more detailed version of the publishing process though.. coz for no coding background and first timer like me.. we really need detail and more explanation on every step!! LOLS...

  • Thunder_ChildThunder_Child Posts: 2,335Member

    @drizzling haha...cookbook needs more details.

    Keep in mind there are so many thing that can be done with GS...detailing all that is almost an unrealistic request. Definately stick with the forums as your "secondary guide".

    Search search search ! Ask ask ask...learnnnnnnn it!

    Do you have to make new certificates every time you make a new app, or just new identifiers and new provisioning profiles? I'm 99% certain this is a no, but I just wanna make sure.

    A new app ID and Provisioning profile is required for each app. You only need to make new certificates when the old ones expire.

    @Thunder_Child this video was really helpful to refresh my memory on the GS process.

    Lately, the apps I've worked on only got me as far as a local test build then I would hand it off to the client(s). I just had to make sure my APIs worked and that was it.

    The Mac desktop build tutorial was particularly helpful because I'm interested in created a desktop game with GS.

    I know this issue has happened before but it is ruining me at the moment. My app worked perfectly. I was testing in test flight. Then for some unknown reason after some minor tweaks I got this after an upload. The certificates hadn't changed but it wasn't working. I have since deleted the lot and started again from scratch using the Thunder Child tutorial and still no joy. The identifiers are the same. It is a distribution certificate. I am smashing my head into a wall.

    @Thunder_Child any ideas? Have you encountered this and solved it?

    "Dear developer,
    We have discovered one or more issues with your recent delivery for "XXXXXXXX - Simultaneous competitive multiplayer fun". To process your delivery, the following issues must be corrected:
    Invalid Signature - The binary with bundle identifier 'com.ezilyamused.XXXXXXXXX' at path [XXXXXXXXXXXX.app] contains an invalid signature. Make sure you have signed your application with a distribution certificate, not an ad hoc certificate or a development certificate. Verify that the code signing settings in Xcode are correct at the target level (which override any values at the project level). If you are certain your code signing settings are correct, choose "Clean All" in Xcode, delete the "build" directory in the Finder, and rebuild your release target.
    Once these issues have been corrected, you can then redeliver the corrected binary.
    Regards,"

    Great tutorial. I'm gonna need this. Thanks a million

  • Thunder_ChildThunder_Child Posts: 2,335Member

    First...hello my old friends...and new ones I ain't never met yet yo ! Just stopping by to ask....Does anyone here still use my Publishing Guide Tutorials? I dont know where the views are coming from but I get STILL...views of my tutorials...Just the iOS Guide alone gets between 600-1000 views a month. It seems they would be so outdated to not even be useful anymore. Im at over 156 days combined views since first upload 4/23/14

    Anyways....its just nice to see people watching. I use YT Studio to see my analytics...pretty cool.

    Hope everyone is having fun making games. I keep itching to come back sometimes...I miss my slots :-(

    Hey! Yep!
    I run our support site and consistently send users to your publishing tutorials. I’d say on average I send 3-5 people your way per day. They’re great!

    Good to see you around!

  • Thunder_ChildThunder_Child Posts: 2,335Member

    wow ! per day ! thats awesome thanks man. you have always been very supportive. good to see you as well...
