In Topic: Async connect/disconnect doesn't seem to work

18 December 2014 - 08:47 AM

 

It is worth noting that the Networking Event does not get triggered in clients when the server disconnects, and that neither of the network_type_* events will be triggered in clients when the server they are connected to disconnects, even if the connection is TCP based.

 

The implications of this is that you have no choice but to write your own methods for detecting whether the connection to the server is still open. GameGeisha's method is the easiest method I can think of.

 

Thank you I somehow missed this in the manual. This behavior seems very odd to me, however... this is the first time I have run across a tool or programming language in which the client did not know if the connection to the server had been lost!

Go to File -> Preferences, Scripts and Code tab and check "Use the new debugger".


In Topic: The Guide To Set Up Android Is Horribly Wrong And

You have to install the driver for your Nexus 7 on your computer. Simply enabling debugging mode and plugging it in is not enough.

 

GM allows you to disconnect your Android device and continue testing new versions, provided you already have the runner on the device. Because it cannot connect via USB that is what it is telling you to do.

 

This I think is something the wiki could explain better, namely, you have to configure your device manually.


In Topic: Tri-Memory

The black bar at the bottom is hidden on the iPod, it's designed that way. Game is nice overall and runs smooth on my iPod. I can't tell if you've pre-designed where the cards are placed or if it's completely randomized.

You must purchase the Android module to be able to export games to Android. If you just purchased GM: Studio professional, it includes the ability to test your games on Android, but you cannot create an APK until you purchase the module.
