Android :: Classes To Use For UI Game Development

Aug 30, 2010

I am trying to determine how to structure the code of a simple android game I am writing. I am focused on the UI portion. The behind the scenes portion (like a pause/restart/switching/etc) does not concern me. The Android demo games source code already do a great job with this. Essentially my game will need a UI with a series of objects on the screen (roughly 100 or 10x10) that the user can interact with. I need to supply an image for each object as well as implement the touch events and animation events for each object. What I am wondering is what type of class do I use for each object so that I can successfully implement these methods and how do I implement that particular class. Note that this game only executes on a user interaction with one of these objects, meaning I don't need a "real-time" implementation.....

Android :: Game Development Scaling - Texture And World

Jun 26, 2010

We're looking for a method to properly scale our textures and world. The current method we're using is having an arbitrary world unit which calculates the screen resolution and receives the size of a pixel on all resolutions. However is there an easier way of implementing a scaling method for game development? We have looked through dip and other android native elements but these don't work as well for a larger scale on game development.

Android :: Libgdx - Game Development Library With Extension

Mar 21, 2010

I'm a bit hesitant to present this here already but today i put out the first architecturally frozen release of my game development library called libgdx. I go ahead and post the content of the description page of libgdx here so you get an idea what it is all about. A series of articles is currently in preparation at my blog at. I will continue extending the library in the near future and hope that some of consider joining the effort. Without further ado, here's a simple FAQ for libgdx. === What is libgdx? === Libgdx is my attempt at a cross-platform game development library written in Java with some JNI code for performance hungry code. It abstracts away the differences between writting an OpenGL application for the desktop via Jogl and doing the same for the Android platform.

This allows you to prototype and develop your application entirely on the desktop and only needing 6 lines of code to execute it on Android. Neat, so what does it offer? Libgdx offers modules for graphics via OpenGL ES, audio, input and file i/o. All modules abstract away system specifics so you can execute the same code on the desktop and Android. The graphics module offers full bindings to OpenGL ES 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. On the desktop almost all of the OpenGL ES functionality is emulated.

Android :: Suggestions About Multiplayer Game Development On IOS And Android?

Nov 12, 2010

I'm working on a simple game to experience the multiplayer game development on mobile plaforms especially on Android and iOS. I'm now planning network/multiplayer side of the game and need some advice.

Firstly i think about Google App Engine as the server side of the game. But i learned that app engine cannot connect directly to clients. So updates of the users cannot be send to others directly with this method. Then i started to think about serving the game on one of the gamers of the current session. But of course some of the features will be on the server. You think it is a good idea?

Second, I'm looking for a protocol to communicate iOS and Android. YAML and JSON are the ones i looked so far.

Any other suggestions about multiplayer game development would be appreciated. Thanks...

Android :: How To Design "manual Animation" Into Droid Game Without Code Delays?

Oct 3, 2010

I am writing a game for Android and I think I have a fatal flaw in my architecture and/or code. The architecture is basically two threads, one that just continuously draws the screen and the other than controls the movement of the drawables on the screen based on the user's touch screen input. In the latter thread, I'm basically doing manual animation (insert correct term here), meaning I move the drawables on the screen via methods that change the Drawables Rect as the game progresses. The "no-no" I believe I'm doing is inserting delays into these methods, so that it "appears like an actual animation." This all works fine and dandy because I have no reason to process any user input during these animations, but it's really bugging me that I'm designing a flaw into a lot of hard work with my game. I'm sure many of you can relate to this in terms of code design.

Android :: Animation.start - Or Animation.startNow - Does Not Start The Animation Immediately

Aug 30, 2010

I have a strange issue - from time to time the animation that should fade out my control (ImageButton) does not kick in immediately. I am using the fadeout animation to hide it and then in myListener on its end (onAnimationEnd) I put new resource as the image on the button.

Somewhere in my app code:

Animation a = AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(this,R.anim.fadeout); a.setAnimationListener(new myListener(location)); buttons[location].setAnimation(a); a.startNow(); // regardless if its start() or startnNow() it will work in most of the cases but not 100% reliable I actually can see in debug Log when its late, happens after few more clicks

Then in myListener.onAnimationEnd(Animation a):buttons[location].setImageResource(R.drawable.standard_button);

Seems there is a rule that the every 4th or 5th animation does not start ...

Android :: How To Store Path Of Game Pawn In Turn Based Game?

May 22, 2010

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?

2- I don't already own an android but i completed my first application using the simulator. Which android phone do u suggest for testing? I am an AT&T user and i use an iphone. Can i simply insert my sim-card in the new android to be able to test my app on the device?

Android :: Development Machine

Nov 23, 2010

With the latest SDK release, and the ability to download separate platforms releases into the SDK, the hardware resources required to develop for Android have increased significantly. Assuming that the developer targets all currently available seven platforms - that could take your dev machine to its knees. Taken alone the 'Android SDK Content Loader' takes nearly two minutes on a dual-core machine with 2GB memory.

As the title suggest the reason for creating this wiki is for everyone to list their development hardware configurations, and thus determine what is a well-suited machine for Android development.

The secondary reason for the wiki is that I'm trying to get my employer to provide me with a decent machine for development as I'm currently forced to work on a nearly 4 year old randomly-built machine, and expected to deliver great results. However, the reality is that my system keeps running out of memory, and I can hardly get a chance to write a few lines of code in between the numerous crashes.

For Gusty/Hardy, edit the file to read: SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"
For Dapper, edit the file to read: SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666" 2. Now execute: chmod a+rx /etc/udev/rules.d/50-android.rules

It works fine but everybody says that doing your graphics in the main thread, so I'm trying (and failing) to pass it off to another thread. Trouble is, I have absolutely no idea how since really I've never used Threads.

The examples that Google gives on using Threads doesn't seem to be very clear and I couldn't really follow it for what I want to do. Could I ask somebody out here to give me the most basic example of how I could do what I'm doing here efficiently using Threads?

Android :: Done With Development - How To Publish Apk

Jul 28, 2010

I'm just about done with development and emulator testing and I'm unclear how to proceed with getting my application ready for actual device testing and them publishing.

Here's my main concern: I have around 600 images that I will need to have loaded (on initial installation) onto an sd card. What is the best way to do this? HTTP? Is there an automated process? Is this handled by an installation script.

Are there documents that cover this type of scenario?

When it comes time for actual publishing the application, again, how will I handle loading the images onto the sd card during the initial installation?

Android :: Are There Phones That Cannot Be Used For App Development

Oct 28, 2010

Is it true that ANY Android phone can be used for App development and testing? I'm trying to find some inexpensive off-contract hardware for development and testing of our Apps. I've found some devices I can buy New with No Contract for $150 to $300 (like the HTC Aria or the Huawei Ascend). Is there anything that would prevent me from using these devices for USB debugging and app testing? I guess I'm concerned because I've read how the HTC Aria has been locked down by AT&T to limit applications. I suspect this won't affect me loading apps using ADB, but I'd like to be sure.
