Hi All

Just to let you know - so far I have managed to reduce wake locks from 2.10% to 1%
It's still above the threshold but much better.

Audiomix is still the tag that seems to be causing it so any other suggestions to try to decrease are most welcome :)

Hi

ALLOWESCAPE FALSE
AUTOPAUSE TRUE

i think it was necessarily for Autopause True if ads are present?

Hi Guys

This might be usual info for some of you...
I was investigating the wakelocks for some of my busier apps - in the region of 2 - 3% of sessions have stuck wakelocks - Google bad behaviour allows for 0.10% so it's a problem and Google said it would affect store visibility if not addressed.

The main tag that seems to be the culprit is Audiomix (so sound and music) - possibly related to users switching jumping in and out of apps or due to adverts.

In order to try and fix this I modified some of the SDL Java file slightly...to perform a release of sound resources before native pause - and so far, it seems to be reducing my wakelocks!! Yay!!

My test app was 2.10% wakelock and is now down to 1.49% and that is with only a small portion of the total installs on the new version...If it gets down even further I will let you know.

Code: Text [Select]
 public void surfaceDestroyed(SurfaceHolder holder) {
        Log.i("glbasic", "surfaceDestroyed()");
                if (SDLActivity.usePauseCall==true)
                        SDLActivity.glbasicOnPause(1); // 1=pause
        if (!SDLActivity.mIsPaused) {
            SDLActivity.mIsPaused = true;
                         SDLActivity.androidAudio.pauseMusic(); // gp
                        SDLActivity.androidAudio.release(); // gp - releasing sound resources
                        SDLActivity.nativePause(); // SDL2 - moved down in sequence
           
                }
        enableSensor(Sensor.TYPE_ACCELEROMETER, false);
    }

Is this what you mean...

Android SDK Tools Revision 24.0.2
Using latest Build Tools: 21.1.2
API level:        22

Im also on an older GLB but that is because I am using AE 2.9  (only for the reason to make sure my adverts still work - I am using Google services

<meta-data android:name="com.google.android.gms.version"
              android:value="7895000"/>

Only issues I have are background wakelocks related to audiomix - but loads of other frameworks have posts about the same issue - it only appeared since Android 8.0 came along...and its a problem for everyone including Unity - not sure if someone fixed it yet.

Guys
Just so you know I did recent update to game-killing bug I had to fix
I just updated the manifest to target api version "26" and uploaded the new version it worked fine - no increased crashes or anything.

I still have pre-api issue with the stuck background wake locks - which is high - and liinked to Audiomix
I am investigating trying to fix with a change I did SDLActivity.

So Google is still working for now using current compiler but using target of the higher api

That's handy alright!

I'll soon update the code. It will compile on V16 (lots of compiler imporvements were required)
Hi
On v16 compiling the Thermal printer code
"BluetoothAndroid.gbas"(67) error : GPC0006 wrong number of aguments : "android_JAVACALL" called with 2 args. Required: 0 to 1

(also tiny misspelling - aguments)

Hi SF,

That's a pity about Otaku publisher...
Why not do a a new Greedy Mouse game (if not done already)?
You could post to all your previous buyers that the new game is coming etc.?

Great stuff! I'm sure most people buying it are interested in learning and using it, and will help to grow the userbase!
:)

No, I just didn't happen to have better videos available - I am quite short on spare time and the STEM release cost me quite some grey hair.
However... [drumroll] it seems to have paid. I never expected this large impact.

Just wondering - did you purposely only add desktop games into the trailer? was this so users would not expect mobile features?

13
Me too
:)

The code also works on Desktop now, yes.

Hi _ I downloaded the sample but it says Android_javacall function not found...I am missing something?
Also - for desktop - windows - surely javacall is not used?

WTF! really niiiice!
