Re: Gif animation runs slow on android only

Found the problem. Evidently livecode has a limit to either gif file size or number of frames. Went from 51 frames(981kb) to 9 frames(208kb) and the smaller gif animation plays at the correct speed.

Gif animation runs slow on android only

I've imported a gif animation into livecode and the app(anim) works fine on my windows pc. But when I build the app and put it on any android tablet it runs at only 1 frame per second - about a 10th of its normal speed.

Passing User Information from lite to full version

My lite version app created in livecode keeps a record of a user's name and score. I would like my full version app to use this same information (user name and score). I was hoping to have googleplay just update (replace) my lite version with the full version. This would keep the user name and score...

LiveCode 6.6 & 6.7 Running slow

Apps running in 6.6 and 6.7 on my pc and android tablets run slow. 6.5 and earlier versions work fine. So my question is - will subsequent version of livecode be optimized to increase the program speed? Or am I stuck with only using 6.5. Thanks Joe

Re: Package file was not signed correctly

Running into the same issue with windows 7 and jdk7. Where is the build.xml located to add the code. Will I need to use eclipse to change the build.xml. - Thanks Joe

Lock screen and disable user input

I'm developing a children's program. Small children tend to repeatedly tap a button/field. This unfortunately triggers multiple events and so the program does not stop at the appropriate time. The following code works for windows operating systems. But flushevents does not work for android applicati...

Re: app screen first appears upside down

I tried your suggestion by inserting the following with no success. I hope I'm wrong but what I think is needed is a new command in livecode that checks the current tablet screen orientation (before app launch) and "sets" the livecode app to that screen orientation. As it is right now a landscape ap...

app screen first appears upside down

My app screen first appears upside down until I rotate my tablet at least 45 degrees. Then it will correctly orientate right side up. Is there a way to have it orientate correctly (right side up) on launching without having to rotate the tablet. My code is below. on preopencard if environment() = "m...

Re: Problem parsing the package

Fixed: Two changes made on Android standalone settings. 1) The identifier field was not filled (formatted) correctly.

Problem parsing the package

I built and tested my app on 3 android devices. All work fine with "sign for development only". When I use sign with my key the app builds successfully. I'm entering my alias, keystore password and private key password (both passwords are the same). But when I try to install the package on the andro...
