How to create APK Expansion file?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Jun 17, 2014 7:23 am

Hello Constructors

Google Play limits the APK file size to 50 MB but allows additional expansion file of up to 2Gb.

I have seen this question on some places on the forum, but it was never answered: How can I set up my C2 and/or crosswalk to create such structure?

Thnx

I've asked Intel to support it automatically in Crosswalk. I'll nudge them and see what the progress is.

Hi there Ashley, you were awesome on the C2 podcast. :-) Any news from Intel about implementing APK Expansion files?

Perfect timing for asking @delaflaquita :) Intel integrated the expansion file plugin into the XDK build system today!
Tomorrow I will run few tests and report.

Wow, really? This would be awesome for the game I'm working on now, which includes some vids. Really had to squeeze to get it in under the 50mb limit. I'd love to be able to up that 10mb or so; would make a world of difference to the video quality of the included clips.

So...how do we go about using this?
Don't lose your work. Backup your game with Dropbox.

I got this info directly from Intel. I have been nudging them about expansion file for quite a while...
It might be that this option is still not official, since there are still few issues on the startup sequence (few seconds delay between the splash screen and the loader).
