Game circle incorrect key when we tried to compile and run upcoming version

Hi all, We are trying to rebuild our game that uses GameCircle. It complies ok. However, it crashes when start running. Logcat says that the GameCircle key is not correct (we used it before without problem). If we compile with a different packet name and different key, the game runs without problem, but when we want to upload it an update, we are requested to use the same package name. Do you know if this is an issue of our testing device (the key is cached somewhere?) or our building environment (windows)? The MD5 has not changed. Should we try to create another key with the same MD5 or is there a way to change the MD5 on the same machine, or should we try to get a key for a different machine and compile there? Thank you, Jennifer

Your best bet is probably to actually visit the developer portal and copy the apk key from the security profile associated with your application again. When you paste the key into the assets/ api_key.txt file, please make sure to remove any trailing space (this may be introduced as an artifact of the copy/paste operation). You should not need to generate a new key unless you have changed the certificate you are using to sign your apk (which it sounds like you have not…)
