Android :: Making Simple 2d Game For Platform

Jun 27, 2010

I'm making a simple 2d game for the android platform, which works perfectly from version 2.0 and above, but when testing it on a 1.6 device, it crashes immediately. On running the debugger, it seems that I'm getting a null pointer exception in the thread class. I was just wondering if anybody has any ideas as to where the problem might be.

Maybe there's some compatibility issues with this code that I'm not aware of--I'm very much a beginner when it comes to using threads.

Samsung I7500 :: Is Programming For Android Completely Different Fron Programming For IPhone?

Dec 24, 2009

I have made apps for the iPhone, but want to also code for the Android but want to know if it is first worth my time, second worth my having to learn another language, and third worth the effort in the sense that am I going to make a profit from this. Also if in any way Android code is similar, then will it be hard to bring the iPhone (Xcode) files, or copy and paste my iPhone code into the Android code.

Android :: Is It Ever OK To Use AbsoluteLayout?

Dec 21, 2009

I understand the problems with assigning a fixed position to UI components, but I would like to use AbsoluteLayout in a way such that the position of the components are chosen dynamically, calculated based on the screen size.Here is why I am thinking this may be easiest:I want to display a nXm grid of imageViews on the screen (n,m chosen by the user) with 0 padding betweeen the image Views.With absoluteLayout, I could easily choose the size of the imageViews and in a way that maximizes the amount of the screen that is used.The reason that using relativeLayout or LineraLayouts may not work for this is because when a user touches an image in this grid, I would like it to "pulse" (quickly scale larger than back to its normal size).If I scale an imageView using realtive or linear layout,it would resize the adjacent imageViews (since the padding is 0), which I don't want.

I would prefer permitting temporary overlapping of the imageViews.This is currently the approach I have taken, except instead of changing the position of imageViews, I am just drawing bitmaps to the canvas at the locations I calculated.I can't use the animation framework, however, on bitmaps that I draw to a canvas.Is this an acceptable use for AbsoluteLayout, or is there a better way to achieve what I want to do here?

Android :: Regarding AbsoluteLayout Being Deprecated In SDK

Apr 29, 2009

I have just realised that AbsoluteLayout has been deprecated in the latest sdk, however I have designed my apps based on AbsoluteLayout and it is very difficult for me to remove them and change it to a different layout. Can someone help me as to how I should proceed? Absolute layout was really helpful in positioning the elements to be accurate. One could always had different layout definitions for different screen sizes, and based on the current width and height the required layout can be set. Removing of AbsoluteLayout is creating a lot of frustration to me as I have already designed most of the things using it. Somebody please help me out.

Android :: What Is Alternative To AbsoluteLayout?

Sep 10, 2010

I see posts saying that FrameLayout is the alternative, and that I should use margins to position things (this strikes me as wildly counter intuitive, but ok... if it works, I'll take it). However, I can't get it to work, so, I'm looking for assistance. I'm aware of the fact that this may mean different things on different devices. I'm ok with that. I simply need a way to, programatically, and at run time, place an item at a SPECIFIC location. I don't want to rely on gravity (or the laws of thermodynamics). I just want to specify a location and have the element appear there :)

Android :: How Much Java Should I Have Learnt Before Trying Droid Programming

Jun 5, 2010

I have been seeking beginner learning books in Android, and of course found out that I should learn Java first. So I began studying Java and now I am quite comfortable with objects, classes, inheritance, interfaces, and just moved onto Layouts in Swing as well as Swing Features. But I am starting to wonder.... do I know enough about Java now? Can I start programming Android yet?

Of course I can keep going in Java, but have been itching to begin programming Android apps.

Any definitive answer here about how much Java I need to know before Android?
