  • Main Bundle Is Remote

    This option is optional and needs to be used with the Resource Server Address option.
    If set, the main package is configured as a remote package, and along with its related dependent resources are built into a built-in Asset Bundle — main under the remote folder of the release package directory. You need to upload the entire remote folder to the remote server.

  • Start Scene Asset Bundle

    This option is optional.
    If set, the start scene and its related dependent resources are built into the built-in Asset Bundle — start-scene to speed up the resource loading of the start scene. Please refer to the Start Scene Loading for details.

  • Resource Server Address

Resource Management for Alipay Mini Game Environment

Alipay Mini Game is similar to the WeChat Mini Game. There are restrictions on the package size. Resources over 4MB must be downloaded via a network request.

Cocos Creator already helps developers with downloading, caching and version management of remote resources. The specific implementation logic and operation steps are similar to the WeChat Mini game. Please refer to the Resource Management for WeChat Mini Game documentation for details.

Note: Currently, Alipay Mini Game only supports loading resources from remote server via HTTPS on the physical device, so the resource file must be placed on the HTTPS server, otherwise the resource loading failure will occur.

Limitations of the Alipay Mini Games

The following modules are still not supported:

  • WebView
  • VideoPlayer
  • Custom Font
