    .jar size limit in Ovi Store

    Hello everyone,

    would anyone please be so kind to tell me, what is the maximum allowed size for J2ME application intended for publishing to Ovi Store?

    I have tried the search but have spotted only an unconfirmed number of 2 MB.

    Just in case, a few details: casual game, uses 3D, for N97 and compatibles.

    Thanks.

    Hi

    The 2MB is correct and confirmed in the Publisher's Guide for Ovi Store,
    you can open it's a PDF right pane, about middle on this page:

    Hi.

    I think this is weird (and bad), if 2 MB is the new limit on games and application size(!).
    It is virtually impossible to make anything decent that has proper sound and graphics this way - esspecially when people are expecting HD like graphic and sound experiences (even more so on the upcoming N8)!

    I have seen games in the Ovi Store that are much more than 2 MB, for example:

    Ovi Maps Racing (Nokia) - 8.5 MB
    Wave Blazer (Polarbit) - 4.7 MB
    Iron Sight (Polarbit) - 15.1 MB
    Dance Fabulous (Nokia) - 29 MB

    So, according to Ovi's own publisher guidelines the above games should be removed imidiately from the store? (I presume, that this is of course absurd, but neverless, the question has to be asked.)

    Dear Henrikweide,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    There is currently no size limitations when uploading J2ME application. We are currently updating the publisher's guide to reflect this change.

    We apologize for any confusion caused in this matter. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to contact the Publisher Support Team at PublishtoOvi.Support@nokia.com.
