Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Android shipping install crash


I'm hoping someone can help!

I've created a signed shipping apk build using the normal route, 'Package Project' -> 'Android All', which works fine.
I can then install using adb, again, works well.
However my issue is that if I try to install via download on the device, it will install fine but then crash from a black screen near instantaneously.
There is one caveat to this though, if the apk is installed via adb first then afterwards installed via download - it works.
This is causing issues for people receiving the build who are not near the office!
Does anyone know how to resolve this issue? I'm presuming it should work as normal eclipse made apks can install via download.

I'm having the same problem. I've shared my .apk file we two others, and on both occasions it has crashes on start - or nothing happens at all. (Note II, Note 3(android 4.4.2) and HTC One (android 4.4.4). I'm not sure if I need to edit the AndroidManifest.xml or something (which I have not done). I haven't looked into it yet.

Here's the Android ETC1 Shipping version apk-file if any devs wanna give it a try: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/21507613/OffshoreEquipment3D-Android-Shipping.apk

facepalm.. Turns out I didn't include the PAK files in the APK.. No wonder it crashes. There's a setting for "Package .pak in APK" in Project Settings > Packaging. My bad!
