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?

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.

Android :: My First Game Is Getting Slow

Aug 11, 2009

I've followed the excellent article on game development here:, and started my game based on the Lunar Lander example. The Lander example re-draws the background and everything else on each "tick". I basically followed its example and I'm using my game's background image to essentially "clear" the canvas so that I can re-draw everything from a clean slate. This, as I've found, has a negative impact on performance as my game is beginning to slow down. My question is, what's the best way to optimize this? If I want to "clear" only certain parts of my canvas, how do I do that? I've read the documentation for, but am getting confused by a lot of jargon I don't understand such as "clip" and "matrix".

Android : Pausing Game On Pop-ups

Oct 7, 2010

I am working on an application and I want to be able to detect when a pop-up (e.g Charger notification, task switcher or the dialog that pops up when you hold the power button) is obscuring the game so that I can bring up the pause menu. These notifications do not produce an "onPause" event. Does anyone know the correct way to do this? I know it can be done by detecting the focus loss from the surfaceview, however views can be added and removed I was wondering if there is a better way of doing this than adding a focus handler to each one and trying to keep track.

Android :: Saved Game Files

Feb 24, 2010

Where are 'Saved Game Files' kept? Internal memory or SD Card? Whats the best way to save 'saved games files'? for when I have to do a factory restore or Rom upgrades. For instance Robo Defence which is going to take me years to play and get to level 2000, will still be playing this in my grave, lol. What I was thinking is that I would backup my SD card to my PC, reinstall the game then copy files back from my SD Card or do I have to install a backup App like 'mybackuppro' to specifically back these type of things up?

Android :: Request For Test Of A Game On An Evo

Jul 1, 2010

Try a game I've released on an Evo? A user has reported that the controls are the wrong way round on the device. Like most arrogant developers :) I initially thought "dumb user error", but I suppose it *might* draw with the Y axis reversed.

The game is Pocket Racing Lite. Touching the left side of the screen should turn the car anti-clockwise, and the right side - clockwise.

Android :: IPhone 4 / Game Changer?

Jun 7, 2010

Andorid makers need to step up the game, as the new iPhone is very good, reading about the iPhone 4 right now (WWDC, Steve Job keynote) i was really amazed, i don't own any apple product and i don't like apple close system.but: 960x640 (326ppi) IPS Display with 800:1 contrast ratio Long battery life (7 hours talk, 6 hours 3G browsing, 10 hours WiFi browsing, 10 hours video & 40 hours music.) A4 chip (as i understand it's really the main reason of the long battery life now offered) 3 axis gyro ( i didn't see that one coming), a gyro+accelerometer+compass=six axis aware device (The wood demo is really WOW) 5MP camera (larger sensor) + 720P HD video @ 30FPS + LED flash iOS 4!For me, more resolution is always better (and since the limit of the human eye ~= 300ppi) , all mobile phone should have a minimum of 300ppi.The new Gyro is a welcome move, as i always wanted my phone to senses when i rotated flat on a table. this will not only be great from game, but imagine Google earth with six axis awareness.The A4 and the longer life was expected, but nice move Apple .The camera was screaming for an update and the HD recording is a nice touch.I still preffer FroYo to iOS4 ... but iOS4 is really amazing with loads of new features.iPhone was behind in terms of the hardware, but not any more.

Android :: Multiplayer Game Communication

Sep 6, 2010

I have to develop a multiplayer game. The game will be supported between different platforms: 1) Two android clients. 2) Android client and a web application (something like facebook and android client for Texas- Holdem game).

I want to handle the communication between the platforms through a service.

I have (C#) background so I thought to implement the communication using WCF service but I am not sure this is the best choice?! Can you please tell me if my choice is good or should I choose other approach to implement the communication?

Android :: Online Multiplayer Game

May 21, 2010

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 . 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?

Android :: Use Of 3rd Party Game Engines

Aug 20, 2010

I'm looking at building a game for Android and I've looked around for any sort of insight into how to approach it.I've run across a few game engines for the platform and I'm wondering if any of you have had experience in using them.I worry about spending a lot of time building an app that relies heavily on a game engine, that maybe is abandoned at some point or becomes incompatible with future versions of Android. However, some of the "out of the box" functionality appears to be nice to have.Just curious to hear if any of you have looked into this at all.

Android :: Get Rid Of Last Few Long Calculations In Game

Dec 29, 2009

Like the topic of the thread says. In my game I would like to turn all the calculations into FP format. I can eliminate pretty much everything else but I still need to do the the following calculation in long format.The value I get from this is the time passed since last frame, which is like.. two digit millisecond value, which naturally is more than good for FP stuff. After that calculation I turn the resulting value into FP integer and use it with the rest of my calculations but I'd like to get rid of that long calculation too. Any ideas how to go around this to do it in FP format?So any advice how to keep the same "accuracy" of the timer but get rid of the long calculation and have it replaced with nice and fast FP calculation. Any advices on how to trim down the System.currentTimeMillis()
