Wish there was just a check box in the settings you could enable to increment the ‘store version’, it’s such a pain to go to project settings -> android and manually change it everytime you need to change it (which is every time you package the project)
It has always been like this, even in “classic” Android development. Same thing for iOS. And you don’t need to increment it every time you pack the project, this number is only used in production by the Play Store to distinguish your builds.
Yes but to test leaderboards & achievements etc, the game needs to be published (internally), basically every time I pack the project, I also publish it for testing on the play store. So I do need to increment it everytime
Edit: You still need to increment it even for internal builds, not just production builds, otherwise google doesn’t accept it.
