    I am trying to update my APK and it's saying it's still version 1. But I changed the Code Version to 2 and the Game Version to 1.0.1

    Currently can't update.

    After export open AndroidManifest.xml and check the line with "versionCode" is set to the value you want, if not just edit it. I do know the release we are preparing this is working (current version may or may not have a bug, I remember fixing this a while back though).

    Hmmm... then are you using the same keystore? And are you building a release APK?

    Hmm it might be that I didn't generate a new keystore when I did the latest apk. Yeah I'm building the APK the same way that we did for the one that got accepted. I'll see if it's the keystore

    NO, you NEED to make sure you are using the EXACT same keystore for any RELEASE versions. Otherwise you will NEVER be able to update you game. This is critically important.

    It's not obvious and completely different case than iTunes. :)

    We do have a note in the Google Play guide about it, though it is often missed.

    Ok got the right keystore thank goodness! @Andy are we able to utilize google play leaderboards? They say it's mandatory to have achievements. This isn't something we have to do on the bb end right?

    No, achievements are not really mandatory in my experience. I think you can enter dummy data (or maybe nothing at all). Maybe someone who has published recently can give some better info on this. (maybe make a new post with relevant title)

    You have to fill out the achievements, just add anything, it won't show, but google makes you add them, its stupid they should make it optional.
    You can't publish leader board until achievements section is done.
    Google play leaderboard is a pain, just a heads up.

    Any leaderboard tips for Android @playsgames6666? I have Alpha testing allowed in the Testing lab, followed the Developer directions but that only goes so far and is not from a BB pro.

    Ok. google play leader boards are a bit confusing first time round.
    Check list,
    leaderboard created
    app is linked, (most people miss this one.)
    achievements you have to create 5 just fill in anything.
    Licence key added in your code. (and they miss this one too.)
    leader board id
    game service id
    have you added game service id in strings.xml ?
    What is your error, what is your error message.
    Also leader board and sign in only work on a signed APK, So you need to compile a signed APK then install on your device for testing.
    Umm thats all i can help with, until i know your error message on your device. or your logcat
    Let me know we will get it working.
