@Astro i dont know for sure.first of all maybe you were already loged in, in xdk and it didnt need you to type again your email.after the build process it doenst give you a link to download the apk?it happens to me too in the start i think it was a bug that the devs fix it cause yesterday i got the option to download the apk via xdk or via my email acount.are you sure that you build via crosswalk android?and not android?sorry but i dont know what is the problem.Maybe to ask someone from the intelxdk team or ashley.

@AnD4D
x86 or 8086 is an Intel designed hardware architecture. I would say that 99% have a an x86 based physical CPU.

ARM is another CPU design. ARM is designed with reduced instruction sets, shorter distance between RAM and CPU to provide more effecient and low powered CPU's.

The difference is like Vegetables and Meat. If you want cook a recipe for steak you really can't use vegetables. If you want vegetable juice use you can't use a meat.

The reason your tests don't work is because your mobile devices are ARM based CPU's as most mobile devices are. Might as play a 3D glasses game on a 30 year old TV.

@spy84 I'm not sure what it is. Funny thing is it was building the apk properly and sending me a link when I set the project up wrongly.

Now that I have set the project up correctly (at least I think I have as it actually pops up in the simulators now) the option to download and send to email never appears like it did at first.

I know it's in beta and it seems very promising, but I can't wait to get to testing. I have "vacation" time and I want to spend it developing mobile games with C2.Astro2013-12-22 03:23:07

@Astro When everything is working, the build finishes in about 3 months and you get a message that it finished and an email. When it isn't working it will time out after 10 minutes and you won't get a message or email. It looks like that is happening now and the problem is on our side. I will report the failure.

Crosswalk vs other runtimes. The goal of crosswalk is to provide a full featured standard html5 runtime. This makes it easier for c2 to use the latest features of html5 and is less work for c2 to support since it is standard and more up to date. It is based on chromium, and Google, Intel, Samsung, plus many individuals are constantly contributing to the code base to make it better. AGI/Ejecta/Cocoonjs provide a subset of html5--mainly canvas and optimized for games. If they have everything you need--that's great. One of the nice features of C2 is that it doesn't lock you into a choice about build targets. We hope to get over the current set of issues and then users will get the benefits of the continual improvements in chrome.

There you go Astro, you should get an email in 3 months. ;-)

@IntelRobert Thanks for that. I'd love to know when the issue is resolved. It's about to time to move some projects forward.

@InterlRobert

20MB just for "engine" is 40% of 50 MB Google Play limit. And for now Construct 2 does not support OBB files etc. Also it means less downloads over mobile connection (because of file size)

anyway if it will get smaller (over time) + support ads + good memory management then "wow!" szymek2013-12-22 06:33:35

I would say this is true for PCs, but is the other way around for mobile
