    Android in-app purchase starter - tutorial

    Here is a quick guide how to setup your first in-app purchase. This will help you connect using the example provided in your examples folders.
    I will do a step by steps tutorial after this one, for now this will connect your right away with the google playstore if you are short for time.
    Make sure you connect okay first and test your app by buying your own product. So Set it to 0.99.

    After that, just delete the events you don't need, they are very obvious.

    1) Sign in your google devs account, I'm using one of my mine here.
    Follow these steps.


















    Mine worked at the first try, but if you do any updates - sometimes it can take up to two hours for the new version
    to show up on your phone.




    Sorry guys I missed one image.
    You need your dev key:
    here is where you get the key




    This is how you make the keystore. using the keygen Danny made.

    It's a good tutorial or how to set things up on the Google Play side, but I would still like to see a tutorial for things on the MMF side. I think it's great that you can have in-app products now but there still isn't a very good guide anywhere to show how the heck it works.

    did you try the examples that comes with the object?

    they are inside the examples directory inside you mmf installation directory, look at InAppAndroid

    they covers teh purchase flow and other the eventes that may occurs during the process

    I see the examples, but the examples don't teach what everything is. I look at the examples and I'm like "huh?" "what?" "how?" I mean they're great to have, but it would be nice to have a companion article or something to explain how it all goes together. Lots of it seems like a foreign language. I want to be able to put that together from scratch based on my needs. I actually have a game that's almost finished that I would LOVE to use in-app products with, but right now I still wouldn't have a clue how to implement it.

    Also, a step missed in the above tutorial is remembering to set your Public key in the properties of the InAppAndroid object! I've been banging my head against the wall for hours tonight, then magically clicked on the object and realised my key was empty

    Right now I think everyone in Clickteam is all production and no public relations, which is great in a sense- but then after the products are sold the attitude is: They'll figure it out; throw in a sample file. It would be great to maybe have one person on staff, part time, weekends maybe, who puts together how-to guides for this stuff. I mean, it took a while before someone posted a guide for setting up the Android keystore stuff and people NEEDED a guide for that from the very beginning.

    Moderator or not, I think this is uncalled for slightly. Clickteam are a small but very well-knitted team of developers who are very experienced in creating a robust, stable and solid product, aswell as managing all the exporters.

    The community is here to all help each other. All example files are provided for all extensions aswell as exhaustive documentation. Google IAP is not a walk in the park I understand that but I would much rather the developers at Clickteam concentrate on what they do best, developing the core product and extensions for us to use at will. People like myself and other helpful members of the community are providing resources, videos, tutorials and much more on a daily basis.

    I created the KeyStore Generator only after I saw people where suffering from confusion and/or trouble understanding the concept. If something's not broken, don't fix it. I saw after 5-6 weeks of release something was wrong so I fixed it. I wasn't instructed by anyone at Clickteam to do it, I did it off my own back.

    Secondly, as a Active Moderator, I speak on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis with most of Clickteam through chat and they always have their eye on the forum and any problems that may arise. I always try my personal best to attend to these issues whenever I can to allow them to continue with their own work. I don't mind and I'm pretty sure lots of other people who are part of this community don't mind when they provide assistance and support on behalf of Clickteam.

    I do agree there could be more put in but it's people finding the time to work on their own projects let alone provide the time to construct tutorials and more.

    We do need to do more tutorials! I agree.

    Always looking to hire people to produce some help/tutorial type of files if they have the desire.
    So if your reading that -- and its you, you know how to get ahold of me.

    Sparckman is doing great work!
    Apparently he is able to figure out how things work from the examples and help and now is able to expand out so others can understand also.

    Didn't mean to ruffle anyone's feathers. Danny, what you said kind of proved my point. After you saw people having so much trouble, you stepped in and made the keystore generator yourself. I thank you for that. I used it. It was great. It doesn't change the fact that something like that should have been made available on release, proved by the fact that so many people (nearly everyone) were struggling just trying to figure out how to use it. Even I was getting emails from people asking for help! The same will happen with the in-app products, everyone will struggle to figure it out on their own until someone, out of the kindness of their heart, steps up and makes a guide. All I'm saying is that instead of relying on someone in the community to eventually make a guide (which they might or might not), there should be official releases of those things by the people who make them.

    I'm one of the people who want to use the in-app products, just like I was one of the first in line to use the Android exporter, and right now I don't know where to go to find those answers. Do I just ask over and over in the forums? Do I email Jeff? Do I just wait week after week, hoping that someone will eventually make a guide just because they have some free time? Danny, I appreciate you making what you did. However, as a consumer who has invested hundreds of dollars in these products, I think I have a right to at least ask to see more time invested in official and reliable tutorials and teaching materials, even just in the form of step-by-step readme files.

    I'm surprised you don't agree with that?
