Android Scaling Issues

Post by xNick1 » Sun Mar 17, 2019 7:35 pm

Code: Select all

wWidth, wHeight = lg.getDimensions()
sx = wWidth / imgwidth
sy = wHeight / imgheight
lg.draw(img[r], quad, x, y, 0, sx, sy)
I'm not using scale(), I calculate sx and sy for every object by dividing screen dimension and the objects dimensions
It works fine on my pc, but it doesn't fill the whole screen on Android

what if I try with getPixelDimensions()?
I'm using the latest version 0.11.x on the repo to compile the game for Android
I didn't have this problem with 0.10.x but it seems like I need 0.11.x to publish the game to the playstore

That's my conf.lua, I don't know if it can help

Code: Select all

function love.conf(t)
    t.identity = "game"
    t.appendidentity = false
    t.version = "11.2"
    t.console = true
    t.accelerometerjoystick = false
    t.externalstorage = false
    t.gammacorrect = false

    t.audio.mixwithsystem = false
    
    t.window.title = "game"
    t.window.icon = nil
    t.window.width = 1280
    t.window.height = 720
    t.window.borderless = false
    t.window.resizable = false
    t.window.minwidth = 1
    t.window.minheight = 1
    t.window.fullscreen = false
    t.window.fullscreentype = "desktop"
    t.window.vsync = 1
    t.window.msaa = 0
    t.window.depth = nil
    t.window.stencil = nil
    t.window.display = 1
    t.window.highdpi = true
    t.window.x = nil
    t.window.y = nil

    t.modules.audio = true
    t.modules.data = true
    t.modules.event = true
    t.modules.font = true
    t.modules.graphics = true
    t.modules.image = true
    t.modules.joystick = false
    t.modules.keyboard = true
    t.modules.math = true
    t.modules.mouse = true
    t.modules.physics = false
    t.modules.sound = true
    t.modules.system = true
    t.modules.thread = true
    t.modules.timer = true
    t.modules.touch = true
    t.modules.video = true
    t.modules.window = true    
end

Does this work?

Code: Select all

wWidth, wHeight = lg.fromPixels(lg.getPixelDimensions())

I was trying to solve a problem. I couldn't compile apks anymore after I lost my old laptop lol.
No, this doesn't work either.
It seems to work only the first time, as before.
It's pretty random, sometimes the game is full screen, other times it's like that:

I think it's cause of the new DPI thing hmm

Edit:

Code: Select all

local frame = lg.newImage("assets/images/menu/frame.png")
local fWidth = frame:getWidth()
local fHeight = frame:getHeight()
local fsx = wWidth / fWidth * 1
local fsy = wHeight / fHeight * 1
local fx = 0
local fy = 0

function BackgroundMenu:draw()
    lg.draw(frame, fx, fy, 0, fsx, fsy)
end
As you can see from the previous picture the frame doesn't get drawn correctly.
wWidth and wHeight are calculated like that: wWidth, wHeight = lg.fromPixels(lg.getPixelDimensions())

Could your problem be related to the space reserved for the system buttons? I don't know how that's handled in LÖVE, if at all.

That could be the reason.
I have software buttons.
Any ideas?

Btw, it works the first time I launch the apk, but only the first time ever

My only idea is to check for any notification in love.resize.

Maybe someone else can shed more light on the issue.
