I wanted to let you know that we are currently working hard to come up with updated, no hassle plugins for next release.
We already managed to have gideros studio automagically integrate a few ads providers (Applovin, Chartboost, Unity) into your Android studio project - and even into APK directly.
Gaming plugin is also being updated so that it works with newer Google Libs (currently tested on 9.2.0).
I also want to thank @SinisterSoft
for giving me a hand on this task, he has already enabled Flurry integration as well as Controller lib, and will work on Gaming/GameCircle backend very soon too.
Our objective is that you no longer need to tweak android studio files, manifest, and so on. If we succeed, Gideros Studio will be able to output a ready to be compiled project in the end.
Also many thanks to those who proposed their time to maintain those plugins. We are still working on proper docs to get you started with building gideros.
