Pegasus

#1

After defold Jam where I put pegasus I had the idea to make more levels, fix movements, add coins for score and maybe publish it. So i made 30 levels. And I want to publish it as start in Windows Store, but I wanted to know if someone else done a publish there to tell how is process. Maybe @britzl knows?
Also if some want test it maybe if send me a pm with their mail I can make an invite to google drive for them to see it.

thanks for listen me, i wish the best to all

No, I’m not familiar with the process. But there should be a step by step process provided by Microsoft.

@Pkeod did you ever publish to the Windows Store?

I’m quite frankly not sure if it is worth the trouble?

I never publish before there sth. Just because is right now for windows setup thats why I thought better put there. I wanted to make to be for google play. So I done inside the virtual gamepad Joystick of @britzl
but could nt transfer for render from 800x800 which I had to 750x1344, or 1080x1920 so I thought better put somewhere for windows. And steam for 30 level I think will not work ,is better I think for mobile or something. thanks

does it need all rebuilt to other screen to be because to make with screen_fit couldnt . Thanks

I done vsync check, and adjust_screen_fit but wasnot going inside normal to render , I used the default render not an asset. do I have to rebuilt all levels and menus or not? Thanks

ok now i saw has apk for mobile the engine i will try this to see what can do. Thanks

I download the apk but when try run it i have this
http://192.168.1.6:38887/defold] error getting XML description: Permission denied: connect

do u know @britzl maybe what happens?

thanks goodnight for now we can continue tomorrow thanks

I never did… because first time people were impersonating us and squatting the names of our game names, and when you installed the versions it was just a .url to their site, Microsoft let this happen. Once that was cleared up then our publishing identify verification got messed up and stuck in limbo, and it took months of back and forth to try and get it fixed, finally got them to reset the process and I never tried to set it back up again. Probably will try again eventually and I’ll report on the processes. :slight_smile:

It probably is worth putting your game up if you are a smaller dev and can tolerate the process but if people are looking for your games they are not going to be stopped by them not being on that store.

@Elpidoforos_Gkikas for this game of yours specifically publishing it on itch.io would be a good start. It has much less steps to go through and you can sell directly if you want to. Try it out.

Ok I will try itch.io to see how can go, something more why gives me the above error when try connect the engine of mobile with pc and cannot see how show at phone. Also do i have rebuild the game for such screens or can render byitself? I think can happen the second but couldnt make it happen at pc. Also i tried make a android bundle debug but was saying failed compiling android resources. Thanks

Screen resolutions for mobile are all over the place. 640x1136 or 750x1334 are both good alternatives which match some iOS device resolutions:

https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/DeviceInformation/Reference/iOSDeviceCompatibility/Displays/Displays.html

On Android devices you typically see resolutions like 720x~1600 or 1440x~3200.

I’d probably use 750x1334.

I’d show more of the game background or inaccessible parts of the game on any additional screen space if the aspect ratio doesn’t match perfectly.

You need an account with Google and you need to prepare a page for your app on Google Play. Google has documentation covering the process: https://developer.android.com/studio/publish

Kalispera sas dear defolders, after some changes to levels and menu for be for android, I wanted to try to add playfab for have a hichscore more good. So I found @britzl example of playfab and some things in forum. And I put the playfab. In example main I change was the id of title in local function init_playfab() to be of pegasus, at controller scipt. I would like to ask if someone knows if I need to change sth else because even if i done three login normal the leaderboard instead of write the username and score was written anonymous.

Thanks

So please if someone or maybe @britzl can tell me what else must change to work the hichscore in code of example of playfab please help. thanks

PlayFab is still a good choice. But I haven’t worked with it in a while and the example I made is probably outdated. But the main PlayFab extension should be updated and you can use that in your game.
