XDK splash screens, Crosswalk for Android build

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Sep 08, 2014 9:37 am

With the latest XDK version, how do I get the splash screens right so they aren't stretched out of ratio out on my 16:9 and 16:10 devices? Thanks.

Use 9 patch. It seemed to work for me.

hey thanks for the response. But I'm referring to the splash screens required by the "Launch Icons and Splash Screens" settings in the XDK Project settings.

I don't think there's much you can do about it, besides designing it for a smaller resolution (leave space around the edges)

splash screens and icons is a MESS in the latest XDK. the generated apk is filled with default splash screens that you have no way to change before you generate the apk

the produces a lot of extra files and bigger filesize

for now it seems they don't have any intention of streamlining that :(

Thing is they aren't cropped or letterboxed, they are scaled so that they appear stretched on my Nexus 5 and 7.

@codah Are you using the right orientations for each Portrait/Landscape tab & uploaded all the dimensions?
I'm just wondering because my splashscreens are fine on Galaxy Tab 3 (1024 x 600, ~17:10) & Archos 80 Cobalt (1024 x 768, 4:3)

@TwinTails Yep, my game is portrait only and I've uploaded all the sizes. Both the N5 and 7 are 16:10 and I'm guessing it's using the XHDPI which is 720x960 or "13:10" so it's stretched badly vertically.

I also have one device (older Acer tab at 1280x800, also 16:10) that 'appears' to look ok, but I think that's because it's using the MDPI (320x470) which is almost "15:10" and so closer to correct ratio and only stretched slightly.

Not sure how these are expected to work at all if scaled..

@TwinTails I'm wondering how could your splashscreens be fine on the Galaxy Tab 3, if the splash images are not 17:10, they would have to be stretched or letterboxed.. confused. Is there a setting I'm missing??

I just make my splash screen images distorted so when it stretches for 16:9 or 16:10, it looks correct. :D
