iOS IAP crashing on reviewers iPAD


Trying to get an app approved on Apple.

Had several issues like excessive ads (which was determined to be caused by intermediate / interstitial ads between rooms...which is debatable)
Also issue with me linking out from the app to a website which provided information about a pro version of the app, which again is not really against any guidelines I read
An issue with being told I was forcing users to enable tracking even though I wasnt as I had an ad disclosure notice on app launch which users could dismiss and close the app (works on Android but on iOS you cant do end_game() so this was the issue)

Most recent issue is that they are saying the app crashes when they try to make an IAP on their iPad device:

Ive tested the IAPs on iPhone and iPad using both dev and adhoc profiles and it works fine. I was only able to find this crash issue when you try to CANCEL the IAP, in which case I saw the following in the XCODE debug console:

I assume this code error is in the official ios iap extension code?

Are there any known issues or bugs with the Apple IAP extension or the IOS IAP functions?

Huh, okay. I only downloaded the extension a few days ago, so I would have sworn it was already up-to-date. Maybe I got it from an old link somewhere.

I will see if I can get a newer version. Thank you!


Sorry to bother you again, but I just confirmed that I'm using the latest iOS_IAPs extension from the GM Marketplace.

Weird thing is, it's listing the file version as 1.0.0 even though the marketplace description says it should be on 1.0.2:



When you have a chance, would you mind checking the version window in your project to see if it says 1.0.0?



I made bug report this is their reply:

We actually released an updated version of the Apple IAPs asset last week to fix this (and a few other smaller issues). Please download the update and replace the extension in your project with the newer version, then you should be fine.

You can read more here:

YoYo QA Department
It should be 1.0.2 maybe first delete the extension form your project, then clean it, then go to you projects extension folder using windows explorer and see its actually been removed.
Then update the extension on the marketplace library to 1.0.2, then add it back to your project
then check the version you have it should say 1.0.2


Thank you for sharing the bug report.

I think I figured out what's going on - I'm still using GameMaker 2.2.5 but the new extension is only available on GameMaker 2.3. You're on 2.3, I presume?

I'm trying to figure out what my best course of action is. My project relies on a number of extensions that haven't been updated for 2.3 yet, but I don't think I can get my game approved for iOS without the new extension... really frustrating.


updated to 2.3 , unless maybe ask other extension authors to update theirs or send a support ticket to yoyo
