Initializing Games Client in Android

I'm trying the new Google Play Game Services.

At first I followed this howto https://developers.google.com/games/services/android/quickstart
and then finished this https://developers.google.com/games/services/android/init

I end up like this:

05-16 20:01:39.034: E/AndroidRuntime(18257): FATAL EXCEPTION: main

I've tried to follow the tutorial step by step. I don't understand what is going wrong.


ava.lang.IllegalStateException: A fatal developer error has occurred. Check the logs for further information.


I thought that logcat = logs and there is nothing more. So where can I find these "logs"?

My implementation is different only in one thing. I have a ClassA which extends BaseGameActivity and then ClassB which extends ClassA and implements View.OnClickListener
So I have all methods from https://developers.google.com/games/services/android/init in class ClassB

Thanks for any help

I had the same problem initially. What I had to do was look at the full, unfiltered LogCat log. There, I saw the message:

GamesIntentService(17929): Using Google Play games services requires a metadata tag with the name "com.google.android.gms.games.APP_ID" in the application tag of your manifest

So, assuming you created an entry in your strings.xml called app_id, try adding the following to your AndroidManifest.xml under the <application> tag:

<meta-data android:name="com.google.android.gms.games.APP_ID"
        android:value="@string/app_id" />

You can find your APP_ID in the Games Services tab

**Games Services** tab
