@Knifegrinder I compiled a test apk using VS2015 but performance is very bad compared to IntelXDK. Is there a setting that must be changet to get the same performance as with IntelXDK at least ?

Just tried the Cordova tools in the latest VS2015 Community, built the APK and tested it on my phone.

The bad side of the test is no musics nor sounds from the game.

Is this the Cordova side, Visual Studio or my phone (my phone was the almost-obsolete Samsung Galaxy Chat with less RAM)?

As for android apps, I feel XDK is the best. In VS you cannot use CrossWalk runtime that provides really good performance. For apks just stick to XDK.

Hello? Anybody know why this happen? How about you, @akkthedev and @lolva?

If no workaround on this, I may try again using Crosswalk.

Hi, did you use apk expansion files (if your apk was over 50mb)? If yes, then you cant put music or sound in the apk expansion and you have to put it in the main code. That leaves you with about 30 mb for all music and sound :|

@akkthedev - I dunno. But the APK size was under 10MB (about 8MB), so it means, I doesn't use any APK expansion. But I've fixed it by adding the Crosswalk Webview plugin, finally, there's musics and sounds.

@lolva - Add the Crosswalk Webview plugin by double-clicking "config.xml" inside the Solution Explorer and install it from the Plugins tab.
