Android crash
« on: February 22, 2019, 08:00:11 pm »

I recently installed Solarus DX on my phone. The theory is great ! But as soon as I come in contact with the android 'home' button it crashes.
I get a nice message asking if I want to open the app again, but that's not quite the same thing.
* Exit should not be 'restart', but exit.
* switch away from solarus ( to answer the phone,e.g.) should work and not crash
* should not crash with other android buttons either
Is there an introduction to how to develop solarus on android ? This seems like such a simple thing ...

You must probably have found the old hacky android port of Solarus DX which is not done by us.
A new android player for solarus quests is in preparation. This will not be an app generator but a .solarus files player.

But the team is busy with other business for now. I don't really know when this android port will be ready. If you are interested it's  on gitlab :

I would be happy to receive feedback on this one instead.
