I tested your demo app and it doesn’t go next level? I finish a level and then i see green checkmark and then admob interstitial ad load. once the ad is finished or i close it, the game goes back to the same old finished game. It should go to next word game. This is a bug in your project ?
Just checked, it works as expected. Please try again.
I am testing your demo APK. It doesnt work for me. What happens on your side?
What is your device and android version?
OK I purchase the code. I am stuck on strings.xml. I see <string name=”admob_pid” translatable=”false”>
but the ID is not a typical admob id that start with pub-XXXXXX
What field is this? What should be in here?
Thanks for the purchase. The admob id typically starts with ca-app-pub-XXX. In the admob interface, you get this id after creating a banner/interstitial ad.
can we add category ?
I see in the comments many have the same problem with the Admob_pid which is not a typical admob id that start with pub-XXXXXX
Do you mean PID=Publisher ID or the ad unit id?
It’s the first time i hear it and i don’t know whether to buy your product or not.
I think you should first purchase the item, before asking the question.
I will, thank you!
hi are you going to make something new for android ?? this app is very good so far !! would be nice if you invent something new
Thank you. Currently, I work on an android flip book and some html5 games.
I’ve just released a new kind of word search. You can check it here:http://codecanyon.net/item/word-search-challenge/16074365
Can I add new language by myself?
Yes you can easily, just follow the instructions in the help file.
Hi, it been a while since I looked at this app. Have you updated the DB word with more words?
How can one add more words?
Is there a restriction to length of word?
Hi, I didn’t add any words. Restriction to word size is the size of the board.
Thanks for reply. Just to confirm, if I add words that are too long, it will not be shown on board?
Also I see you have leaderboard in the new one, any chance of adding same for this one?
If the number of letters in new words are greater than board size they won’t show up. No leaderboard planned for your game.
i wanna buy, but i need to ask something, can i add multiplayer feature in this code??
Sorry, it is designed for a single user.
I’ve opened your game app with my updated Android Studio version 2.1.2 & SDK Manager and I get the following:
Failed to sync Gradle project ‘WordSearch – Android – Studio’
failed to find Build Tools revision 23.0.0 rc3
Install Build Tools 23.0.0 rc3 and sync project
And this pop-up when I click on the link:
All packages are not available for download!
The following packages are not available:
- Package id build-tools;23.0.0-preview
It seems that this Build Tools is an older version…so according to my research, people have resolved the issue by going to ‘File>Project Structure…>App’ and to go down to 22.0.1 or up to 23.0.1. After doing that, it gives me more errors. I’m back to square one.
Is there a way for you to correct that in your Android Studio to a more current Build Tools version? Without correcting this, it will not allow me to get into the project.
First make sure your SDK is up to date. There are a number of places in the project where the version is written so please perform a global search by hitting CTRL+SHIFT+F.
Well, first, I did mention that my SDK is up to date and that your preview is out of date – but that didn’t work, though got it fixed through another solution. Thanks for the code anyways – great game to pass the time!
please help me in fixing this issue
I am getting with this app only
Error:(16, 0) Gradle DSL method not found: ‘android()’
hi im getting very often the same app crash at this point here : Do you know how to fix this ? Any solution would be very nice …its a bug in the app
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to invoke virtual method 'android.content.res.Resources android.content.Context.getResources()' on a null object reference
in word.java in line 139
boolean substringAllowed = Settings.getBooleanValue(context, context.getResources().getString(R.string.pref_allow_substring), false);
is this the problem ? because this object is always null because the pref key allow_substring was never set ?

”...find the following line in MainActivity.java:” do you mean GameActivity
Excuse me .. it’s frist time to me for reskine .. i can’t display the ads .. can you tell me what i do in detail please
You just need to create an id in google admob website and enter this into strings.xml.
I do that.. the change only in strings.xml ?
what about changes in GameActivity?
In game activity make sure it is not in test mode.
Yes it’s comment
If you entered your app unit id into strings.xml then it should work fine now, but don’t click it you get banned from google.
Can i change java code to make grade size start with other value like 6*6?
Yes it is possible Please check prefs.xml and Constants.java.
Please start from the beginning following the instructions in the help file. Every file is in its there is nothing missing.
should be change package name only with line ended with R or every line have a name trimax ?
What you should do is clear. Change the package name in AndroidManifest. Then if you get errors in java files, update them according to the new package name.

You shouldn’t show it on start because the ad may not have been loaded.
Can you send me eclipse version for this game? i’m not familiar with android studio.
Today I purchased your code. Tried to Hindi as new language. I did as you have instructed.
But display in the game shows strings ( Hindi is Unicode characters multi-byte). in separate boxes. Any help?
Like: स ॉ अ ॅ
Please check the default android font roboto at this address: https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Roboto. See if your characters are included. If not, you need to find and install a font that supports Hindi characters.
Thanks for the reply. So I need to create a folder in assets and put the font file. Where and all i need to replace the font reference?
The textview is under res/layout/wordsearch_grid_cell.xml. You can also access it by code in WSLayout.java.
can you please send me an example files of both files (how to include) noto fonts as i am not well versed with java code. Thank you. vasthurengan-at-gmail-dot-com
here’s a good tutorial on it: https://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/quick-tip-customize-android-fonts--mobile-1601
i tried but of no use. i think the problem is where you split the string. pl. look at the screen shot http://prnt.sc/dxnxb4
The characters are not latin so I don’t understand anything about them.
it is like for example the arabic word الإنعكاسية which is only 5 letters
is shown in 10 cells ا ل إ ن ع ك ا س ي ة
But in the bottom it shows the word correctly (your arabic app is perfect just for you to understand i split and show)
Did you try to use the Arabic version with Hindi words?
Yes I tried Arabic also. Created new language and dB. Imported words as instructed. The problem comes while you split string
Please look at the WSLayout/populateBoard method. The board is populated there.
i viewed your arabic now and learnt same thing happens in Arabic also. the letters shown in grids are not full letters (conjuncts are separately shown).
There are special accents in arabic that are not displayed but they don’t cause a problem (No one has reported). Did you try logging, displaying your characters in logcat?
