New Android Export Experiences

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Dec 20, 2013 9:04 am

I can't get it to install too. It's extracting and then it just crashes.

Windows XP 32bit

Does anyone know: Is it possible to do the whole process online? Or will I definitely need this software on my PC?
Free Android game: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... VSMrMonkey

"Seven Birds VS Mr. Monkey" is a simple yet fun game.

Mr. Monkey is being attacked by birds and without a way to escape all hope seems lost. But if you think Mr. Monkey goes down that easily you are mistaken!

Help Mr. Monkey to upgrade his skills, get special attacks and show these birds who's the boss!

I manage to instal XDK and test one of my games, but unfortunatly the FPS dropped from 55-60 in CocoonJS to 10-15 in XDK. I am using Samsung Galaxy S2 for testing

If you're seeing reduced performance, how does it run in Chrome for Android? That should produce similar results. If you've never optimised your game for mobile before and you're just trying it out on Android for the first time with Crosswalk, it's also possible your game is taking advantage of the fact desktop PCs are 10x faster or more. You should test games on mobile from the start and it's not really Crosswalk's fault if you haven't done that so far.

Text objects changing every tick can be pretty slow so try hiding them if you have that. @Ize, I noticed you had some debug text that looks like it changes every tick, that's definitely going to kill performance.

Made the test again
CocoonJS 50-60 FPS
Android Chrome 40-50 FPS
XDK 15-30 FPS (and graphics seem a little pixelated and blurry)

I have no physics in my game, just bullets and a sine behaviour (maybe sine is doing the low fps ) I will test more

@flemmig I did not manage to download apk either. I used their launch app for Android.Cipriux2013-12-20 13:48:04

Right now the Intel part of it all seems a bit.. non-verbose. I have not been able to get an apk-link, too (the spinning "building-wheel" just disappeared), but I'm suspicious, since the Build-Page shows no "previous build".. so I suspect it did not build at all or crashed on the cloud.

It would be better, if one could see some sort of progress log of what the cloud builder is doing, but alas, nothing Scirra can do about that.

Seems like my hunch was right... no APK link means this:



Not sure why the build fails though.

@Ashley Are there any known culprits that must not be in a project right now to work?
