Game doesn't work when testing on android emulator

wongj19wongj19 Posts: 45Member

I have followed this video: on how to publish to the android store. I have signed the APK file and it is now sitting on my desktop. Before I decide to upload it I thought I would try to play it on Bluestacks which is a android emulator on my laptop. When I opened the APK file on Bluestacks it just crashes. What should I do? Please help.

thanks

    After opening the game it crashes or before? also you should try to test it on any mobile device, what if the problem is with your bluestack?

    Copy the apk file to the mobile through data cable and then browse from file explorer in your mobile then instal. Dont forget to "Allow unauthorized apps" in settings.

    I don't thats the problem. Because when I have previously made an APK and tried to open it on the emulator, it worked. But when I tried this new game that I am making, it didn't work. I think it has something to do with the coding but I can't exactly pinpoint the reason. Any thoughts?

    Check all the attributes under game, maybe something got misplaced, then again republish. Wish you best of luck

    Hi wongj19 just wondering if your issue is resolved? I'm facing similar issue where APK receives error message "Unfortunately 'app name' has stopped" and does not open. My app works well on iOS.

    Could you kindly advise what you did?

    Thank you
