64 bit android apk file

Post by AndyDuff » Wed Jul 10, 2019 6:03 pm

Hi all,

I have a question, which I suspect is a novice question, so apologies in advance.

I have been using Martin Fella's excellent 'startgamedev' to convert my .love file into a .apk file. Using this I have published my game, 'Push Blox' on Google Play. Now however Google is now telling me that I need to supply 64 bit .apk files. (Presumably then the .apk files that 'startgamedev' spits out are 32 bit.)

Is there a straightforward way to adjust somehow the startgamedev package to make it produce 64 bit apk files? Is it connected to the underlying love-android-sdl2 file? Is there a separate sdl file for 64 bit?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much for forwarding these threads! For some reason I couldn't find them when I searched earlier.

I will follow these up.

Thanks again!

This is an issue that's bothered me for quite a while. One of the reasons I started using love was it claims to be able to create Android games. Which is sort of can. But if you want to publish on the Play Store, there's no way to do that. (Not that I have anything to publish - IRL got really busy so that's just a pipe dream for me.) I'd really love to see a legit way to create 64-bit APK's from .love files.

EDIT - That's actually in the works right now, it looks like! The MartinFelis Android repo/mirror is currently being updated!
