Hmmm, just a quick question: i think i got andors trail through f-droid and still have the 0.7.13 version. Is this right? Do i have to do anything to update?or is the update not on f-droid and i have to wait a little longer until the update is there?
Many thanks for the help.

In f-droid, sadly yes. You have to wait a little longer. Unless, there's an update available or what. I haven't use f-droid but what I know is that expect the update to be either on delay or on waiting line in f-droid.

The main reason is, according to QQkp,

Unfortunately this delay is due to our rather old way to createthe apk
It was OK for Google Play, but F-Droid wants to recreate the apk and doesn't support our project in this state any more.

So you either have to wait (I can't say how long) or use the apk from our server static/AndorsTrail_v0.7.14.apk

Maybe it's the signature key? If you had installed Andor's Trail from F-Droid last time, you have to deinstall it first, before you can install the actual version 0.7.14.
This is because F-Droid uses a different key to sign the APK.

It would be a good idea to backup your existing savegames first.

Okay, thanks @nut for the help. Will look for my savefiles first and then i'll try it that way.

Edit:
Okay did backup my savefiles but it seems they are still in the andors trail folder. But:when i start the game the load button is greyed out. So, do i have to copy the save files somewhere else?

The new folder for v0.7.14 savegames is:
/storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.gpl.rpg.AndorsTrail/files/andors-trail/
Copy the savegames and the worldmap folder to it.

Probably you can't write directly from PC to it.
Then use a file explorer app to copy to the new v.7.14 folder.
E.g. the Android app Total Commander works for it.


As an alternative option you may deinstall AT again and install once more the old version, but this time with our signature static/AndorsTrail_v0.7.13.apk
Your saves should be loadable now.
Next install the actual version static/AndorsTrail_v0.7.14.apk that should make the mentioned copy (could take some time, be patient)

Well first of all many thanks for the help.
It seems it does not work with uninstalling then install the 0.7.13 from nut and then install the 0.7.14 from nut(although this time i was able to install the 0.7.14 version unlike when i had still the f.droid version installed). But with this version i still had no save files in the game(although the save files were still in the andors trail folder so it should have been able to find and copy the files to the new folder).

So i tried the total commander way but it seems i'm not allowed to write something in the andors trail folder. I did find it where it should be(its where nut did write) but when i try to allow writing something in there i get an error message.
So is there something i need to permit the total commander android app(and if so how?)?
And many many thanks for all the help!
