Amazon Appstore rejects because app displays json file

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Mon Apr 28, 2014 11:10 am

Hi. I submitted my app to the Amazon appstore but they rejected it and said some code is shown on launch.
Has anyone else this problem? I exported my project for the Amazon Appstore and entered the verifikation/app key to get a .json file.
I uploaded everything to my server and it seems to run fine there. But the appstore test gets an error.
I created a ticket and got a reply from them.

Thank you for writing in. After installing & launching the app on device, we are able to see the below json file on device

----
{
"verification_key": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
"launch_path": "index.html",
"permissions": [
],
"type": "web",
"version": "1.2",
"created_by": "Bl4ckSh33p-Soft"
}
----

It seems there is a misconfiguration in URL, rather than referring .html file you might be referring to json file.


Why does it show the .json file when they test it? I don't see it when I run it on my PC or mobile.

The C2 engine would not do this, so it sounds like a mistake on your part. Hard to say what it could be without more information.

But what could I have done wrong? Its not very difficult or complicated to click export, select Amazon Appstore, enter the appkey and then upload everything via FTP. :)
I tried it on PC, iPad3, iPhone 5S and an android tablet and it runs fine without any errors or text shown when I open the URL on my server.

I used 2 Plugins (clay.io viewtopic.php?t=71658&start=0 and system date viewtopic.php?t=63492&start=0).
Its a simple app with some countdown timers (eso-research-assistant-esora-track-your-eso-research_t103475). Nothing "special" with effects, physics or animations. Any ideas?

It might be best to ask Amazon, especially if you can't see the problem on your own device.
