game not loading in android

Hi there,

I am very new to gamesalad and i have used the template basic shoot em up to try out.

I ventured further to find out on touch screen control and decided to explore.

i end up using two simple control "up" & "down" with spawning to shoot laser. i published and play the game on my android phone. it works :-)

now i try to add on more buttons "left" & "right" & "fire". But this time the laser spawning is solely on the "fire" button. i tested on preview and it works. so i published it to try on my android phone.

unfortunately, this time i can only see the game loading on my android phone for a while and it just exit.

can anyone enlighten me on this issue ?

thank you for your kind attention

    I am not too sure how you test on android device as I mainly test with iPhones.
    But may be is similar way.

    For Iphone, I use GSviewer to test. Sometimes, it will take 1-2 times to load the project into GSViewer. GSViewer sometimes does not load properly, it might stop if the connection between phone and my mac is not good enough.

    For Android, I do sometimes test on my tablet. And I always publish an apk thru Gamesalad site so that I can download and install to my tablet. Rarely has issue though.

    Are you using the gamesalad viewer? Make sure you have the most up to date viewer version 1.25.

    If you are trying to ad-hoc without the GS Viewer and just downloading your apk, you DO still need to sign it before it can install on your Droid

    Did you install the android SDK? Did you create a keystore? You need a pro account to publish. You must publish through the pro account.

    I have all that done.
