I want to remote connect to my desktop from my phone so I can play online poker when I'm not at home. I've used log me in, but it is beta and it crashes. What is the best remote connect app out there that WORKS including paid apps?
I am getting started in android development and I really want to create some form of online game. My goal is to start out with a turn- based game and move onto advanced multiplayer games. I want to have users associated with their google account, provide some sort of matchmaking to pair people together, have their stats stored in a database, and use the stats for various leaderboards and such. I have read over an older discussion on this list at http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg75... . There was a lot of good information that I gathered but I still have some questions. What I have so far is an apache web server on a laptop that I don't need right now (2.0Ghz Core 2, 3GB Ram).
I have never really used Java (although I'm learning it for android), but I know C/C++, Perl, and Python. I am in the process of learning mysql databases, which will help with a lot of the stats features I want to implement. I have built a HTTP/1.1 persistent server in C before which did JSON parsing and used a threadpool so I am somewhat familiar with the low-level network calls needed. However, I'm thinking that a free server software must exist that would offer more security and better load-balancing than the server I created. One solution I am thinking is to just use the Apache web server, have android make a request to a perl module I create on the server, and then have the server look it up on a database and so forth. Then the server will just keep sending back the player locations or whatever. Will the Apache web server slow me down for what I am trying to do or I am looking at everything the wrong way? Are there some settings in Apache that I could tweak to give me better latency such as persistent connections?
So I was wondering is it possible to make an online pc game work on android ? Unfortunately I can't post links but if you search youtube for "Awplanet android" it would be the first video.
This video was made 3 years ago so this game no longer exist on an android platform because someone made it without the creators permission and sold it for money so it was taken down. Can it be made to work on android again ?
I own a rooted Prestigio Multipad Prime Duo 7" (PMP5770D) and I have a problem with "Order and Chaos online v1.3.0". As soon as I run the game, it stops without any warning. I've downloaded this game from a*kma*nia.co. What should I do? I solved Modern Combat 3 by changing the language in english.
Does anyone know what happened to the awesome Red Poker Texas Holdem that used to be on the market. it was the best card game Ive ever played on a phone and its not there anymore. anyone know where to get the apk?
So maybe I'm asking a question already answered, but, is there an app for Google Documents? Here's why I'm asking, and why my question is specific to me:I play a lot of poker. I need to start tracking my sessions and keeping accurate records. Problem is, in my casino, I get NO service, eliminating the ability to get to and edit my documents at the table. I need an app that allows me to edit a document and sync it later once I have a signal.
I have a square grid, for a turn based game ( grid is similar to the chess board ), but the moves in the games are different based on whether you have lapped your opponent pawn at least once or not.i.e if you have not lapped (beaten any of the opponents pawns) in the outer most grid as below.if you have lapped your opponent pawn once at least, then you get to reach home,this way.Any player having all his pawns reaching "home" first wins.The ones in yellow are safe-houses, i.e both the opponent pawn and the player's pawn get to stay in the same grid, this is not considered to be lapping ( the opponent ).The lapped pawn will return to its start point.Now the question is, what is the effective way to store the paths for the all the pawns.we will have 4 pawns for the player and 4 opponent pawns.Is there any pattern to store such static information, in a elegant way?
I have a puzzle game with a 7x7 grid of graphics, and a timer, its just about ready to go. But I am stuck on how to go about saving/continuing game. For example when someone exits I want them to be able to save and exit, then come back and click continue to pick up where they left off with all of the graphics in the right place, timer and score. I looked at onSaveInstanceState android examples, but not sure if this is what I need or how to implement it in my case.
So are there any Poker apps that let you play with two people on the same phone? Much like one they have on the iPhone, where each player has one side of the phone (like "2 Player Reactor" on Android, if you've played that).
All I see are online poker apps and poker calculators etc.
Anyone have experience with a good countdown timer that works well with Droid? I think I downloaded the "Ultimate Stopwatch" once and it didn't work well (The alarm sound was way too soft). There are dozens of timer apps, and it seems people have various problems with all of them, aside from maybe a few pay ones. But I just want something really simple. Just for timing things like cooking stuff in the oven and poker games. Any suggestions?
I'd like to add widget support to my app, but I suppose that it'll take quite a while until 1.5 is globally rolled out. I assume that widget support means that I need to compile against 1.5 and set up the minSdkVersion to 3, so I'll effectively lock out anybody with 1.1. Other than adding a second version of the same app for 1.5, what's the best way to approach this? Wait a couple of months until 1.5 is globally spread? (Assuming that all carriers even decide to roll it out in the first place.)
What's the reason that a phone needs to be rooted in order to take screenshots? I'm almost in disbelief that something as simple as a screenshot app isn't available (or built-in!) for an unrooted phone. It just seems like such a normal thing to do.Is it possible that in the future an unrooted phone can have an app to do this, or is there something about Android itself that doesn't allow it?
AS per the question, how many of the HTC apps require you to be online to do anything? Like are they all weather, sat nav, or use the internet to show you locations, and such? I'm just wondering how many apps will require me to use GPRS when outside of a WiFi zone, which would be quite a lot of places really!
Why do Android screenshot utilities only work on rooted devices? Linux distributions and desktop environments provide user-space screen capture tools. Why can't Android? I wonder what are the technical issues, if any, that prevent this. The only user-space procedure I am aware of, i.e. installing about 1 GB worth of development tools on a PC, hooking it to an Android device via USB, and disabling some of its funzionality (e.g. SD card access), is not user-friendly.
