Game Center moved to a plugin

Game Center moved to a plugin

Starting in Corona SDK build 2014.2455, Game Center (iOS) has been moved to a plugin. This means that you will need to include the plugin in your build.settings file. In practice, this means that your build.settings file should include the following within the plugins table:


Once you’ve included the plugin, implementing Game Center is accomplished via the same methods as before. Please refer to the documentation for details.

    Just out of curiosity does that mean that apps built before that (2455, currently using 2393a) need to be converted in order for the game center to work, or if I don’t plan to update those apps in the future this only applies to apps created after I switch over to build 2455?

      This only applies with apps built with 2455 and later. If you’re using 2393a then this doesn’t affect you.

    I am using glitch games library for game center. Can I just include the plugin in the build setting to keep the gg gamecenter library working?

      I don’t know what the glitch games library is but all you should need to do is include the plugin in your build.settings file.

      Hey Scott, Graham here from Glitch. In theory that should be fine but please let me know how it goes!

    Any chance of Corona updating to the newest Gamecenter so as to have both turn based and real time multiplayer?

    The only tutorials I find on GameCenter are 3 years old. Could you update that ?
    Searching in forums leads to tons of errors post, a complete tuto including things to do on Apple settings would be cool.
