How do I make Android games using Intel XDK or altenative?

I've already made my game for android by exporting to Ludei, but they add their own splash screen, and their servers are pretty slow.

How do I export my project to an apk using Intel XDK?

It may seem like it's easy to answer but it's not. I watched many tutorials, but they all use really old version of the XDK rendering my XDK version (v1995) useless.

Video of guy uploading his game to XDK (v1621): removed because low points blah blah

The closest I came to ever putting my project to the XDK was on a certain video of a guy choosing what engine his game is running, and he just wrote "c2", but I don't have that. I have a drop down menu for things like Phaser, Coco2d, Pixi, Easel JS, Basic Canvas Game.

Also that guy in the tutorial didn't have an option called Use Cordova Plugins, so I don't know if I check that or not.

I'm using XDK 1995
The emulate works fine, i've never exported a game yet.

The steps:
1- click on Start a new project
2- click on import your html5 code base
3- select your file location
4- click continue
5- enter you game name
6- use cordova plugins - yes
7- game project - yes
8- click continue
9- test emulate

So the game engine is set to "Basic Canvas Game" by default ?

Also how long does it take for a basic game to compile?

...It's been 10 minutes, is it usually this long?

20 now. Ehhhh

It's been an hour... "creating project: blahblah" and nothing but a loading bar.

intel XDK was my first option to export and it take about 5 minutes with my game (it depends of size). And If you use too many XDK Plug-ins it compile slower.

Now i export with Ludei cose if you dont have WebGl on your phone, some games (as mine) run veeeery slow.

Note: Some people have problems exporting their projects in XDK when use "minify project" when export to cordova ;)

This was fixed by reinstalling the XDK, thanks!
