Getting started with GameCircle ... unable to read api_key.txt

Hi Im in the process of porting me game from Scoreloop to Gamecircle. Ive generated the api_key.txt and put it in the assets folder. Opening the apk file showss that it is in the right place. im signing the app with the same certificate, however, I get this error on startup: E/GameCircleClient(12308): Unable to read api key. GameCircle requires an api key to be included in 'assets/ api_key.txt'. GameCircle will not initialize. Where am i going wrong? Thanks!

Ok, in anser to my on thread, ive made some progress. When I changed my Java init code from the example in: https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/gamecircle/documentation/jni-api.html to: https://developer.amazon.com/appsandservices/apis/engage/gamecircle/docs/initialize-android It started to work! Im now getting some different errors, but im sure I can work with them. Ironically, I got it working 5 minutes after emailing amazon support!! Adam

This error is also thrown if the api key given is not correct. Either the package name or the MD5 fingerprint of the certificate that is used to sign your your apk is wrong in the API key settings. Please follow below guidelines in order to generate the correct API key. https://developer.amazon.com/public/apis/engage/gamecircle/docs/create-a-gamecircle-configuration#Generate%20API%20Keys If the problem persists, please send us the GameCircle configuration name, the API key name through ContactUs ( https://developer.amazon.com/public/support/contact/contact-us )

This is a known issue. Please make sure to store the API key you receive from the developer portal in a safe place for reference.
