GPS, microphone and camera
« on: 2015-Oct-05 »
Hello,
I wanted to ask if GLBasic supports things like microphone, GPS or camera access on android and iOS.
So you could use a picture you took before with your camera as the background for a level.
Is this possibel?
Thanks in advance

Hi,

Yes, you can obtain GPS fairly easily using AndroidExtras (please see other forum posts related to this).  The microphone shouldn't be too hard to achieve.  Taking photos is more complicated.  I did implement this using AndroidExtras a long time ago, but never made the code public as I didn't like the way it worked.

As for iOS, I've no idea I'm afraid.

Thanks for your quick answer :)
I found the thread about AndroidExtras, but no exact link to download AndroidExtras (actually, I'm not really sure what this exactly is :( )

And is there a documentation about the commands for GPS, etc.?
