    The new font rendering is AMAZING. I've always loved clean user interfaces, and with even more crisp and clear fonts I now have a lot more control.

  • hgy29hgy29 +1 -1
    Nothing changed about gdrbridge specifically, let me check how it behaves from command line

    Found the issue with gdrbridge: new html5 web player ports conflicts with gdrdeamon. I'll fix it.

    @hgy29, you see, you should've taken me seriously when i mentioned this bug in the beta. : )
  • hgy29hgy29 +1 -1
    Yes, obviously! But holidays made me forget this detail :)

    In this release you can, for the first time, put ads in Windows Phone and Windows store apps. That's very significant for monetization on these platforms and is the first time we've supported ads (or any plugin) on WinRT.

    It's taken a huge effort by @hgy29, the whole player had to be rewritten. I've heard there is good money to be made from WinRT ads so please let us know how you get on.
  • keszegh +1 -1 (+6 / -0 )
    altogether, i'm sure these releases contain a lot of work by many people, but by my experience indeed @hgy29 is one that has to be thanked for many of the new features and maintenance.
    thanks again for all the people who keep working on gideros core.

    Hi @john26 I suppose that it's in this path: Gideros Studio/All Plugins/ads/source/WinRT/Ads ... right?

    A stupid question too?
    I know recently there is visual studio for mac (not VS code) so is possible make an windows phone app or windows app with it... i haven't much experience with this platform... so thank for any feedback. :)

    Also +1 as @keszegh said: "thanks again for all the people who keep working on gideros core."

    I think you simply choose the pubcenter plugin when you export and the appropriate files will be copied

  • Hi folks

    When I exported my project from Gideros to Android Studio automatically I got the next error:
    Error:(661, 41) error: package IMarketBillingService does not exist

    So I added to my app gradle this
    sourceSets {
    main {
    aidl.srcDirs = ['src']

    and I fixed the above error :) but I get a new problem :-? :
    Error:(19) couldn't find import for class com.android.vending.licensing.ILicenseResultListener


    Well I tried to do the following:
    Clean project -> Rebuild Project
    (Build located in the toolbar)

    Without any success...
    Somebody's had the same problem that me or maybe you've some idea like fix it... Any feedback thanks

    @HubertRonald, it looks like you tried to use Google Licensing plugin, but that one doesn't work automatically despite the ability to select it. @Sinistersoft and I attempted to convert it to new plugin system without much luck so far.

    It looks like this plugin is using deprecated API and I don't know yet how to upgrade it. Any help would be welcome.

    I reckon we should disable it until it actually works.
  • @hgy29 Thank for your reply, I'm sure after I gonna try with more patiently the above
  • keszegh +1 -1 (+2 / -0 )
    @hgy29, how can we get the modifiers for the mouse events? is it documented in the reference?

    EDIT: i've found that it's at event.touch.modifiers but it should be documented nevertheless.

Howdy, Stranger!
