About this Guide
This Guide for Fusion 2.5 Android Exporter keeps you frequently updated with the latest instructions on how to build .apk files for your Android device since April 2017.
Everything is included: 64-bit support, fix license errors, support for generating the signed files for your Google Play .apk releases per command line
Android Studio is not required when you follow the instructions below.
(this solution is always conform with the Android Studio solution for the latest Build)
                                                                                                                                                                                                      
Guide Solution A - when you prefer direct download links on this page
Scroll down for the alternative Guide Solution B - when you prefer to download the latest supported packages by yourself with the Android SDK Manager GUI application.
(update: I will soon remove Guide Solution B completely, since old Manager application now slowly retires - it won't support later repository links anymore)
1) A: First step | Downloads
1. Your first task is to manually create a folder called android-sdk and store the .zip files there.
(example location: L:\Clickteam Fusion 2.5\Android\android-sdk)

You can find all the important downloads below(download size ~650 MB in total).

2) Install OpenJDK
Extract the downloaded archive into a new folder called jdk1.8.0_282
on your hard disk with Windows installed, for example:
C:\Program Files\openjdk\jdk1.8.0_282
                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
3) The Folder/File Setup inside android-sdk folder
a)     This is the android-sdk folder with your downloaded .zip archives:

            

b)     Now arrange everything as shown in this picture: CLICK[dl.dropboxusercontent.com]
         (extract all .zip files and create new folders when necessary
         + don't forget to rename the extracted folders when necessary - you can see this in the above image too)

                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
4) Fusion Settings
         open Clickteam Fusion 2.5 and go to Tools - Preferences - General tab
         and set the right paths for OpenJDK and Android SDK:

             Pathname of the JDK directory:
                   C:\Program Files\openjdk\jdk1.8.0_282\jre
                You can shorten the path a bit if you want and remove the \jre part.

             Pathname of the Android SDK directory:
                   L:\Clickteam Fusion 2.5\Android\android-sdk
                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
5) Build the APK file
         in Fusion create a New Application

         in Application Settings change Build Type from Windows EXE Application to Android application



         in Android Options choose:
            Build API 30 | Minimum Android version 6.0 | Target Android version 10.0



         build the Android application (apk) file
            File → Build → Application → Save

Fusion 2.5 will now automatically download and install the required gradle files for the first time. (this will take a while)

Depending on your extensions/objects and events, some extra cache files must be updated.
Then a working internet connection is necessary again, if you get a build error otherwise.

There might be an error tellung you about some licenses that were not accepted.
"License for package [...] not accepted."
In this case run the sdkmanager license online updater to quickly verify any missing licenses:

END OF GUIDE SOLUTION A - Congratulations! (below you can find the alternative solution B)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Guide Solution B - when you prefer downloading the latest supported packages by yourself with Android SDK Manager GUI
1) B: First step | Download OpenJDK
1. Your first task is to manually create a folder called android-sdk.
(example location: L:\Clickteam Fusion 2.5\Android\android-sdk)

OpenJDK
           ojdkbuild .zip (r282) → DOWNLOAD[github.com]
On your hard disk with Windows installed, extract the downloaded archive in a new folder called Java and rename the extracted folder to jdk1.8.0_282.
example of correct path: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_282
2) Install packages with SDK Manager GUI
Downloads
           tools_r25.2.5-windows.zip: CLICK[dl.google.com]

                 (source page: https://developer.android.com/studio#downloads)
           Android SDK Manager.exe: CLICK[dl.dropboxusercontent.com]

Get Android SDK Manager GUI ready:
in android-sdk folder from step 1) extract the 3 .zip files archive by archive in the order how they're listed above(replace existing files when you get a prompt) and then put Android SDK Manager.exe into the folder 'tools'. (if you want, move all .zip archives to a backup location or delete them)

SDK Manager GUI instructions:
         run Android SDK Manager with 'Android SDK Manager.exe'
         and wait until Android SDK Manager is done with loading packages

         hover the mouse over any package with Not installed status to check the download size

         choose latest supported Packages:

             Tools:      Android SDK Tools(already installed)
                                                                                       Android SDK Platform-tools 31.0.1 - and if you can't see it: HERE[dl-ssl.google.com]

5) Build the APK file
         in Fusion create a New Application

         in Application Settings change Build Type from Windows EXE Application to Android application



         in Android Options choose:
            Build API 30 | Minimum Android version 6.0 | Target Android version 10.0



         build the Android application (apk) file
            File → Build → Application → Save

Fusion 2.5 will now automatically download and install the required gradle files for the first time. (this will take a while)

Depending on your extensions/objects and events, some extra cache files must be updated.
Then a working internet connection is necessary again, if you get a build error otherwise.

There might be an error tellung you about some licenses that were not accepted.
"License for package [...] not accepted."

You should do this for a new installation: uninstall any Fusion 2.5 export modules and Fusion 2.5 itself in main installation folder with the original uninstaller programs, backup your remaining extension files(just make a .zip archive of the full Clickteam Fusion folder after you are done with running all uninstaller programs and move it one folder location higher in the folders tree, then delete Fusion 2.5 installation folder) and then in order install Fusion 2.5 base software with original main installer, then install Android Exporter and any other export modules too, then run the update installer for the latest Fusion Build 293.1. Then extract your backup .zip archive and don't overwrite existing files in extraction process. Then follow solution A in the Guide again and don't forget to set your path(s) in Fusion preferences correctly - also double check that there are no empty spaces in your paths at all.
Wodjanoi  [author] May 16 @ 7:45am 
No. 292.26 is ok, but I suggest a clean installation in your situation of all exporters and Fusion 2.5 itself(when you installed platform-tools and everything else properly and you have Fusion 2.5, Build 292.x and you see this error, try reinstalling Android Export Module - you can quickly backup any of your extra extensions after uninstallation process:
If you have Standalone Clickteam Fusion 2.5 Build 292.26, I assume you can simply update to 293.1 directly when you are online and start Fusion 2.5, but for clean installation to fix your issues you better login into clickteam community forum - Support Forums - Product Owners Lounge and find your correct installer programs(you find Fusion 2.5 main installer and update installers for dev or standard versions there).
Timur May 16 @ 7:15am 
Oh... I've just noticed that my version is 292.26, and it's not Steam. I guess it works ONLY with 293.1?
Wodjanoi  [author] May 16 @ 7:05am 
Alright. What version of Fusion 2.5 do you use now? Steam version and 293.1?
Timur May 16 @ 6:44am 
It now gives me an error saying "an unnamed file contains an incorrect path"
Wodjanoi  [author] May 16 @ 3:48am 
You need the higher target versions and latest fixes for Android platform anyway, so please install the latest available Build of Fusion 2.5 - that's 293.1.
It seems what you use here is a version from years ago which is not using Gradle yet. When you have the Steam version, please check if there is an update available for Clickteam Fusion 2.5 or install an update for the Standalone version.
I still have my instructions on how to build for older versions and avoid your error here, but this guide is up to date with new instructions for Gradle. There was no reason to still include my old instructions for older Fusion 2.5 Builds in this Guide anymore.
Timur May 16 @ 1:20am 
I've done everything as in Guide Solution A, but it doesn't let me to choose android version higher than 5.1 and also when I try to build my application it gives me this error:

Buildfile: C:/Users/DELTA-~1/AppData/Local/Temp/And98CA.tmp/build.xml

BUILD FAILED
C:/Users/DELTA-~1/AppData/Local/Temp/And98CA.tmp/build.xml:84 : Cannot find D:\GAMES\Clickteam Fusion Developer\Android\android-sdk\tools\ant\build.xml imported from C:/Users/DELTA-~1/AppData/Local/Temp/And98CA.tmp/build.xml
