Great stuff!
Which library did you find it listed with?

Hi SF,

How does this differ to the older version of the borderless code - I used the older one and it worked - a bit of a delay between window and borderless (less 1 sec) but otherwise same.

Is this a borderless requirement for win 10 or specific platforms - glb 16?

Nice one!!

I too am using GLB for some business side is the start of my simple grid data viewer - but your GUI project looks very nice!

What are you using for your database backend?

No worries - I tried convert a long time ago to epub format for another service - but it was a mess - and the platform didn't generate any the epub format had the downside of being DRM free and could be pirated all over the place.

So just stuck with kindle - i may look at kobo again - very hesitant to put on unsecured platforms.

That book looks great, is there any way of buying it that isn't on Amazon? Prefferably as an ebook.

There is kindle version of both my books :)

Hi Guys

An article I wrote last week about 80s BASIC - and how I rediscovered it is trending as a top story on Hacker News :)

Maaad! But great!

Instead of SLEEP

Using a timer variable that uses gettimerall() millseconds value to allow you to skip mousechecking on every loop.

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 :)

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 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=""

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.
