Missing Marketing Icon with XCode 9


#1

Hi, Looks like there’s a new requirement for iOS uploads. I guess a new Projucer options needs to be added?

thx

#2

Actually, I guess this might not need to by a Projucer option - I’ll just try adding a 1024x1024 image to the resources.


#3

Don’t you just need to upload it to iTunesConnect? Does it really need to be part of the app bundle?


#4

I’ll check but it appears as though it needs to be part of the bundle in Xcode 9 as it’s the uploader that is chucking out this error. I’ll investigate more today though and post back


#5

I use the Contents.json provided by MakeAppIcon, and it lacks this particular size. However, it’s easy enough to drop in the iTunesArtwork@2x.png provided one level up in the MakeAppIcon folder tree. Just throw that in there and drag it in the doodad, and Bob’s your uncle.

But yes, both Xcode 9 and Application Uploader will fail if this icon is missing now. AFAICT it doesn’t fail from Xcode 8, but I’m already using 9 for deployment because AUv3.

Cheers - will be doing an upload in an hour or so

Xcode 8 is still fine - I was quite happy running Xcode 8 and Xcode 9 beta sidebyside until the XCode 9 beta decided to update itself and remove 8. I still had an outstanding beta bug with Apple aswell so was a bit miffed, but luckily it had been fixed in the final release


#7

I have one waiting on TestFlight approval right now that was built against 5.1.2 and Xcode 9. We shall see what we see, but I don’t anticipate any troubles. It’s something I’ve done a lot in the last few months. (8 apps since the end of May, woof.) Other than that missing icon, everything else seems fine.


#8

Anything already in progress is fine - even though I got the warning, it still allowed me to send out a new beta update without the extra resource - it’s only when starting a new beta (i.e. new version number) or submitting to store that it’s enforced, so you should be fine…

just reread and seems like you are starting a new beta - good luck!
don’t know how your reviews have been recently, but the last 2 beta reviews I submitted took 2 and 3 days respectively to get picked up - 5 mins once picked up, typically


#9

hey Chris, where did you drag the new icon to?


#10

If you highlight this:

And scroll down, you see this:

Just drop it in the spot, and you’re disco.


#11

Hi, this is what I see. I guess I’m looking in a different location to you…?


#12

Hi Fabian - any word on whether this can be automated into Projucer?


#13

This is on develop now - 38a4baa.


#14

Great. Will give it a go tomorrow

looks good, thanks
