Windows Phone 8.1 Certification problems

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Wed Nov 04, 2015 1:07 am


I'm getting really tired of this. I bought Construct 2 thinking that I will do some apps for Windows Phone 8.1. God I was so wrong. First the sound issues, now this. I can't get through certification process. They send me something like this:

Notes To Developer
The app's core functions are not usable.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch the app.
2. Start the game
3. Notice the core functionalities are not working .

Tip: A Windows app may run flawlessly during development and testing, but after submitting it for certification testing, the app may crash or perform unexpectedly. Along these same lines, your app may not perform as expected after publication. This resource,, explains the most common reasons for this along with remedies.

On my device game works fine (except the fact that after minimising, it doesn't come back - I can't find solution for this). But as it's written above, testing deployed SDK version is NOT actually testing. I can't find option to upload package as Beta Release.

I'm getting really frustrated... First I had to cut my game in half now I can't even publish it :(

I would suspect it is the minimization issue to be the reason. Sometimes rejection info is not too helpful.
