I am trying to implement leaderboard in my game using https://github.com/cgisca/PGSGP module.What are the steps which I have to follow to implement leaderboard using Google Play Games Services Plugin for Godot-3.2.2? As per the instructions given in the module I added the following lines in AndroidManifest.xml file.

<meta-data 
     android:name="com.google.android.gms.games.APP_ID"
     android:value="@string/app_id" />

Then created Strings.xml file and added the following code inside it.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
    <string name="app_id">745298242451</string>
</resources>

I created values folder inside my project folder and placed Strings.xml inside the values folder: res->values->Strings.xml (not sure whether this step is correct)
But when I export the project I get the following error:
https://photos.app.goo.gl/ffmhCopsc7zHZHN28

If instead of doing the above steps If I just add the following to my AndroidManifest.xml file:

<meta-data 
  android:name="com.google.android.gms.games.APP_ID"
  android:value="745298242451" />

I get the following error:

Did you succeed with leaderboard? I need to implement one now but not much info around.

I was able to implement leaderboard using the Silentwolf website. Link: https://silentwolf.com/
I did not succeed with the Google play services plugin. But the above link is free and the leaderboard is easy to implement. Just follow the instructions. And if you get stuck, I will try to help you out.

Thank you so much!
