Testing a Crosswalk Install

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Thu Feb 06, 2014 4:40 pm

Hi - I've recently tried to output a .APK file to test on an Android device using your "How to Export to Android with Crosswalk" guide.

https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/809/how-to-export-to-android-with-crosswalk

As a test, I tried to export one of your built-in example files ("Touch - zooming") in version r155. I did not change anything in the file.

I export as "Android" to my Intel XDK project folder. I refresh my file library then build.

The build seems to go fine. I download the .APK file from Intel (I have tried both x86 and ARM) and install to my device using the Android adb tool. My device is a Samsung Note 3 (4.3) running Google Chrome.

I can see my new application. I run it and get a black screen (with a few random RBG patterns in the bottom section of the screen).

Since then, I have also installed Genymotion and tried this on a number of virtual devices. I get the same result every time. Any advice? Am I missing a key step?

UPDATE: I also tried to test with the "Crosswalk Player" that you mention in your blog post:

However, the link is broken and I can't seem to find this player on Google Play.

UPDATE: I can also "Preview on a Local Network" using my phone and it works fine (in Chrome and native Android Browser).

Does the Crosswalk built in emulator run the game OK?

Have you tried emailing a link to yourself and installing it directly from Intel and not through the adb tool?

Hi, thanks for your help, Bertie. I could not find the "crosswalk built-in emulator." The Scirra documentation has a dead link to the "Crosswalk Player." Is that what you are referring to?

Regarding email installation, I get the same result - Black screen. I have installed homemade java apps using the Android SDK before onto my phone and other virtual devices so I don't think the problem is with the Android SDK install.

UPDATE: I just tried an extremely basic Construct2 application (similar to "Panning" example) and I was able to run it using crosswalk. I still can't get "Touch - zooming" to work.

As of now, I believe there might be an issue with the "Touch - Zooming" example which prevents it from running properly in Crosswalk.

Does anyone have a valid link for Crosswalk Player?
