Android : Puzzle Game With 7x7 Grid Of Graphics / How To Save And Continue Game

Nov 12, 2010

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 :: Video Games - Graphics/SurfaceView Tutorial ?

Feb 23, 2010

I'm trying to learn how to make video games on Android, and therefore I'm needing to get some decent tutorials going on how to make graphics on Anroid using the SurfaceView object. However every single graphics tutorial I've tried (mainly SurfaceView stuff) has failed. Please note that I don't want to use XML, as it is out of my element, and Google just wants to sell that technique on the advertisement of neatness, which I can do programmatically.

One major problem I've run into is that there are many tutorials, both from Google and from third parties, with code that uses the import android.opengl.GLSurfaceView command, or either imports a subset GLSurfaceView, and that never works on my IDE. Every time I try to import either one of those, Eclipse wants to say that it basically doesn't recognize that package. The strange thing is that I CAN import android.opengl.*, although that still causes some of the code in those packages to be referring to unrecognized types and/or methods.

After trying to fool around with the first problem for a while, I noticed that the Lunar Lander example didn't try to import either one of those two problem libraries. So I pulled the code and referenced resources for that into one of my infant projects, leaving everything else in that project unused. Of course I did change which package the Lunar Lander code was in and changed the class name in or whatever, but that should not matter. I was able to get the thing to build in Eclipse. However when I went to run it, it would do nothing but crash. Without showing any Lunar Lander graphics or anything, the emulator would just give me this error message basically saying that my App has stopped working unexpectedly and makes me close the App.

1) What's the deal with the issues with the opengl.GLSurfaceView package?
2) What's the deal with the Lunar Lander example?
3) Where's a good, firm tutorial on how to make video games for Android

Games :: Angry Birds Missing Graphics / Something That Can Be Fixed With Re-install?

Oct 22, 2010

It seems that on my HTC Hero not all of the landscape features are fully rendered. The foreground hills and such that the pigs are on are just plain white. This makes it very hard sometimes to really see what all the obstacles are. I noticed this in the beta version and assumed it would be fixed in the full version but I guess not.

Is this something that can be fixed with a re-install or is this just a bug with the Hero? I can't be the only one with this problem (I hope)

Android :: Android Game Engine For 2d And 3d Games

Nov 19, 2010

There is a library called cocos-2d for iphone. There are number of games developed with that nowadays. Also, there is cocos-2d library available for Android too. I just wanted to know if that is also as stable as iphone one or its still not stable to be used in development.

Also, is there any other game engine available for Android? The ones that I know is AndEngine. Which one is better for development? If not both then will it better to develop using core Android API rather than using any game engine.

Android :: Graphics

Feb 26, 2010

I have rectangle white box. on cliking the rectangle I will draw a toolbar beneath the box and also call relayout to accomodate the toolbar ( size+100) ( i used surfaceview and in secondary thread i draw the toolbar) on click again on rectangle box it will disappear the toolbar and also has to resize the layout to original size (ie size-100) this is where I get stuck. I can disappear the toolbar however I cant call relayout either from secondary thread (says cant call from secondary thread). So I created a while loop in onlayout( this is where i create a thread to draw the toolbar) if i call requestlayout after while loop ends it doesnt do anything it doesnt call onmeasure etc.

Android :: 2d Graphics

Jan 14, 2010

I created a 2d game in java that runs as an applet, and i am now trying to translate this over to the android. As the android doesnt used paint() methods, i am thinking that i will have to import images of the game instead of drawing it, but i cannot find out how to do this. Anybody know how to add images to the folder and call them in the app? Also, how can i call a screen repaint() in the android?

Android :: Mix 2D Graphics With Layouts

Apr 26, 2009

I'd like to build an activity that is mixing layouts with 2D graphics. So for example, would like to introduce an edittext with an integer value and based on that value the size of a circle is dynamically adjusted and drawn. Any idea how to do this?

For plain graphics I am using this approach here - but how can it be expanded to cover Android layouts (buttons, editboxes, textviews, radiobuttons, etc.)?

Android :: Scaling Transparent Graphics In 2.0.1

Dec 13, 2009

I have some transparent graphics in my game. Up through 2.0.0 they have looked fined. Since Android 2.0.1 though, some parts of the fully transparent regions of the graphics are instead slightly opaque (e.g. a circular gradient that goes to 100% transparency will have a faint halo around it).

I have tried putting my graphics in ../raw/ but that did not help (as described at

I have also tried exporting the Adobe Illustrator graphics at 16-bit pngs (instead of 8bit), but that did not help either.

Android :: Graphics - Tools Recommendation

Oct 13, 2009

I have much experience with Java, and am quickly getting to grips with Android. But I have very little experience with graphics... most of my work has been logical, back end web development. The last time I did any proper screen drawing was in the good old days of Applets (years ago).

I can see that Android has a very complex graphical interface, but I don't know where to start. I've looked at some of the sample apps that come with the SDK, but it's slow progress.

For example, I'm trying to learn by developing a simple rolling ball. Currently I'm using onDraw(Canvas canvas), a paint object, and path.addCircle() to draw a circle, which I then update frequently. However the result is jerky, and slow - I want to see it flying around the screen! Clearly this isn't the right way to go about it.

So two questions I suppose: 1) What graphics tools would you recommend to implement my example? 2) Where can I learn more about the graphics capabilities of android?

Android :: Curved Graphics In OpenGL ES

Aug 18, 2009

I was disappointed to discover that OpenGL ES, the flavor of OpenGL implemented in Adroid, doesn't appear to support the usual techniques for drawing graphics involving curves. I'd be happy with either OpenGL's low-level Bezier evaluators, or the more advanced NURBS approach, but AFAICS neither is supported - only straight-line graphics are possible. Does anyone know, am I missing something basic here? Is there a way to generate curves of any sort in Android's OpenGL implementation? I am still fairly new to Android development, so that's certainly possible. Note that I'm not talking about functions related to Canvas - I know about drawOval, for example - but I specifically need 3D.

Android :: How To Keep From Running Out Of Memory On Graphics For App

May 10, 2010

I've been working on an Android app in Eclipse, and so far, my program hasn't really grown past midget size. However I've already run into an issue with an Out of Memory error. You see, I've been using graphics comprised solely of bitmaps and PNGs in this program, and recently, when I tried to add a little bit more functionality to the program (mainly including a few more bitmaps and causing an extra sprite to be created), it started crashing in the graphics thread's constructor -> sprite's constructor. When I tracked the problem down, it turned out to be an Out of Memory error that is seemingly caused by adding too many picture files to the program and creating Drawables out of them.

This would be a problem, as I really don't have that many picture resources worked into that program...maybe 20 or so. I haven't even started to include sound yet. These images aren't all that fancy. My questions are this:

1) Are programs for the Android phone really that limited on how much memory they can employ, or is it probably something other than the 20-30 resource pictures causing that error?

2) If the memory for Android apps is so awful it can't even handle 20-30 picture resources being loaded into Drawables that exist at the same time, then how in the world are you supposed to make decent graphics and sound for that thing?

Android :: How Can I Minimize Stuttering Of Graphics?

Dec 31, 2009

How can I minimize the stuttering of my graphics?I am using MANY ImageView's in my program (and JUST ImageView's). I change their positions directly, when I need to change them without using "onDraw" to redraw everything. Is it ok, If I do not overwrite onDraw? I have in average 10 objects which I added to the mainscreen-layout.These 10 objects are 5 trees and 5 flowers. The trees and flowers have 5 different states and therefore 5 different ImageViews which I all added to the layout, whose just are invisible. So I have about 50 ImageViews added to my main screen When one of these objects changes its state, I just make its ImageView invisible and the ImageView of the new state visible.Is it ok to do it like that?I realized that if I just use one ImageView for every object and change the ressource of it when its state changes, all objects, which are currently added to the mainscreen-layout, change their position to (0;0). That was the reason, I have so many ImageView's added to the mainscreen-layout.Is there a better solution for that?

Android :: How To Put Graphics On Top Of My Camera Preview

Sep 10, 2010

I see a couple of threads on this topic, but none of them seem to answer the question, so, I'm giving it another go...

Very simple idea... I want to some portion of the screen to preview (and shoot) the camera and the other portions of the screen to add my own graphical elements (buttons, colorful frame around the camera preview, etc).

The example that comes with Android fills the screen. The obvious solution (that doesn't seem to be working) is to use my own SurfaceView (rather than the one they do in the example) and have it sitting in my XML. The code (beneath) doesn't crash and reports that it's firing up the camera... it just never renders on the screen.

I have no idea what I'm doing incorrectly. My guess is that it has something to do with the display thread never having the urge to redraw anything after it renders the initial screen, but I even tried adding a button and initiating the camera to render on the surface view upon button click, but that has not provoked it any further.
(most of this code is pulled directly out of the Android sample code, so, I'm sure it's correct. I'm just doing something wrong in how I pull my View in after the fact, I think).
