API level 8 no longer supported on Google Play

I tried uploading the Cooper Cube APK export to Google Play and it seems that, because of their recent policy changes, API level 8 is no longer supported.


Is there any workaround for this problem, can I change the targeted Android package for build through script or by selecting it manually somewhere in Cooper Cube?

Google introduced this change just now, which is a bummer, but I'll work on making it possible to use the play store with the next update of CopperCube again.

At least it seems to be en vogue by other game developers as well right now to publish games not on the play store, heh.

Update: as posted in the answer below, there is a beta with a fix available already. You can try it here: http://www.ambiera.at/downloads/...

this notice was a buzz about a year ago along with the 64bit requirement which will be enforced soon. good thing with the x64 issue this is not a problem anymore as I see CC android code is only pure java (no native libs) so no need for that.

hey niko, may I suggest for the update that you can just pick the api level to use where theres a list of all known then default to CC's 8 or the latest installed if that's possible (theres android command for that)

by the way your last sentence seems to be true, but it is still good to have that playstore accessibility with a wider reach.

Update: This beta version of CopperCube should already fix the problem, and uses API level 26 for Android. Download it here: http://www.ambiera.at/downloads/...

Let me know if you still have the problem.

The problem has been fixed, the beta version of CopperCube 6.0.2. exported the APK file & I was able to upload it successfully to Google Play Console :)



I did make a stupid mistake in my first export-try because I didn't check the App Version Code in CooperCube APK export dialog. It was sett to 0 so that first upload test gave me an error message concerning the version code not being a positive integer :)



As soon I changed it everything went smoothly so just check your App Version Code number before you start export to APK :)

Cheers!

I downloaded and installed the beta - and it messed up my scenes when I saved the project.

First time Coppercube ever messed up a file.

What exactly do you mean by 'messed up'?

All my textures were gone and my main 3rd person character disappeared.

In the end, I had to redo all three scenes because of this.
