Well, I read @stelau4 's .net reflector tutorial and decided to try modding some games. But the problem is when I try to compile the APK (using option 18/ or option 12) I get a weird error and I can't figure out what the problem is.

I tried redownloading apkmutitool, but this problem is still here.

Here's a video showing the problem in action:


Exception in thread "main" brut.androlib.AndrolibException: brut.directory.PathNotExist: apktool.yml

I have no idea how to interpret that error, but is the apktool folder placed under the C drive and did you run the setup first and install the framework?
The folder is on my desktop, so yes its under C but i dont think i installed the framework, that might be the problem.... do you know which framewirk im supposed to install? I remember trying to pull dependencies from my device but it wouldnt connect to my phone.

watch your folder length...best to put any tools as close to root folder and with short folder name

Thanks for the suggestion. I've made the decision of not using apkmultitool since i don't need to decompile the .apk to get to the .dll or .so. As Stelau4 said, you only really need to decompile if dealing with modding smali or whatever, so I just use it to sign stuff.
