# Unity build issue - GooglePlayGamesManifest and GameServicesManifest

I have added leaderboard to my unity game for which I have used the google play services plugin. But when I try to build, this is the error I get:

 Execution failed for task 'processReleaseManifest'.
> Manifest merger failed : Attribute meta-data#com.google.android.gms.games.APP_ID@value value=
(\728999946156) from [:unityLibrary:GameServicesManifest.plugin] AndroidManifest.xml:10:13-42
is also present at [:unityLibrary:GooglePlayGamesManifest.plugin] AndroidManifest.xml:20:13-46 value=
(\u003728999946156).
Suggestion: add 'tools:replace="android:value"' to <meta-data> element at AndroidManifest.xml:8:9-
10:45 to override.


Here's what's in the first manifest file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- This file was automatically generated by the Google Play Games plugin for Unity
Do not edit. -->
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:versionCode="1"
android:versionName="1.0" >

<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="14" />
<application>
<!-- The space in these forces it to be interpreted as a string vs. int -->
android:value="\u003728999946156" />
<!-- Keep track of which plugin is being used -->
android:value="\u0020.20.20" />
android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar.Fullscreen" />
</application>


and the second file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
<application>
<meta-data android:name="com.google.android.gms.games.APP_ID" android:value = "\728999946156" />

• Presumably you tried following the suggestion in the error message: Suggestion: add 'tools:replace="android:value"' to <meta-data> element at AndroidManifest.xml:8:9- 10:45 to override. - what happened when you tried that? – DMGregory Oct 18 '20 at 16:39
