iOS Intel XDK experiences

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Nov 01, 2014 4:07 pm

Browser close doesn't do anything on ios because there is no native api:
https://developer.apple.com/library/ios ... index.html
If Cocoonjs or ejecta does something on ios, then we can look into it, or maybe @cranberrygame has a plugin.

We are still looking at the other issues.

- Game won't go to landscape mode. It's just stuck as a small little box in the middle of the screen.-
- Browser -> close command doesn't work (no way to quit).
- There is no audio at all. [Is the media plugin required for this? I didn't need it on Android so I assumed the same applied to iOS]
- "Somehow I got the whole screen selected (as if I wanted to copy) and the copy prompt came up."

I have none of these issues on Android.

Fullscreen and landscape orientation was selected in the project settings.

XDK uses the Cordova capability, but that doesn't work for ios https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-6462 https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-6182

I see there are some cordova plugins to lock orientation so that would be the quickest solution.

@megapowerskills
@GeometriX

I tested the plugin and it works. If you request landscape in c2, and add the 3rd party plugin in XDK:

name: landscape
plugin id: net.yoik.cordova.plugins.screenorientation
repo: https://github.com/yoik/cordova-yoik-sc ... tation.git

Then it will lock landscape

Oh, @IntelRobert, when you say "request landscape mode in C2", do you mean as an action under the browser object (on start of layout), or in the properties setting for the project itself?

@GeometriX
I only tested the properties setting for the project.

A user has reported that when they use the landscape plugin and admob together, they don't see banner ads on ios8 devices. We are investigating.
