I've put a game file on the M8. i dont have the game in my region so i used an apk and obb. The obb folder is shown empty after i try to play the game and check it. Games' files disappear, although still consuming space in the internal memory. I have to reformat the internal memory every time to get back that space. The obb folder is shown empty after i try to play the game and check it. There is nothing in it although i had put the game folder in it. But the space is still consumed. Can anybody help regarding this?

MINE IS A STOCK m8 UNROOTED.

First with plants vs zombies..but then when it happened i tried more games..all seem to do it. They dont play and there is no obb data of the game in the obb folder after launching it.

Sorry, I'm struggling here. I understood from @ethan3686 that maybe due to location (India) he had a problem installing this.

Your post of how to install the apk and obb shows this is about how to install the cracked version. In the UK you can download the game from the playstore with no problem unless you want the full version for free.
