  • Hey Chinta,

    Sorry for the delay, but I believe I can help you with this.
    For all Windows Store games, you are required to contain a GDF file to meet each regions age rating requirements. Below is the guide to creating the document, so this should help clear those rating errors. 

    Create a GDF file

    To help share understanding of the age rating board itself and terminology used, read through the knowledge base below that goes through specifically that. 

    Age ratings and rating boards

    Each region will need a rating, once you create your GDF document that will resolve the errors you posted about. Thank you for your patience and best of luck with the game!
