Firefox OS submitting problem

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Oct 29, 2013 5:45 am

So I was trying to submit my game to firefox marketplace for firefox OS, I exported my game as packaged app in C2, so I don't need my own hosting.
But when I upload my game .zip file, the web says "Your app failed with 1 validation error. Error extracting manifest from zip file"

my zip file already contains a manifest.webapp file in it and when I open it in notepad++ I don't see anything strange. Do anyone knows why this error occurred and how do I fix it? Thanks

Maybe it would be best to talk to Mozilla about this.

I can't seem to find the contact us link at the developer hub, does anyone know where to shoot my email at?

@Daggio did it tell you what the validation error was?

it only says: Error extracting manifest from zip file. No other information, so I'm confused

Thanks @TGeorgeMihai it seems the mistake was mine, I zipped the finished folder instead of all of the resulting files which makes the manifest inside a folder and not in root. It's fixed and my zip can be uploaded now

there's one new error, though, it now says this: Web App Manifest's `fullscreen` was of an unexpected type. The webapp.manifest fullscreen is set to true (not a string), so I don't know why this is an unexpected type. Can anyone help me with this?

edit:
nevermind that, I changed the fullscreen value to string and it worked! thank you all who helpedDaggio2013-10-31 06:59:59
