  • Thank you.

    Have you tried compiling ios with iOS 11 SDK. Because I am getting some errors and crashes while app is runnings.(Bad access crashes).

    thanks.
  • In my project "Other Linker Flags" were set to -ObjC, it is required for appodeal. However, this causes some crashes on Gideros. I removed it now I dont get any crash.

    Solved:

    Downloaded the latest, I get this error on iPhone.
    module 'lfs' not found:
    no field package.preload['lfs']
    since in one of my scenes:
    require("lfs")

    Oops, I had to add them to my plugins folder inside Xcode.

    Or better, add it to your plugins folder in gideros studio ;)

    It dose not let me to add the standard plugins, it opens up the location, when I highlight the plugin(lfs), and then ok, it dose not add it.Or maybe I do not know how to exactly do it.
    There is no folder for ios under lfs plugin folder.

    @zoolax, since Gideros 2017.8 plugins can be added to the project directly in the project tree: right click on 'Plugins' below your project name and select 'add plugin'. From there you should be able to choose 'LuaFileSystem' plugin and add it to your project.
    Gideros will then add LFS to your iOS project on export automatically.

    Is this what you are doing already ?

    Gideros 2017.9, Player.exe crashes after I attempt to close player window on Windows. Any clues ? Same on Win 10 and Win 7 machines.
  • hgy29hgy29 Maintainer
    Doesn't happen here, but it may be related to the code you previously ran. Can you come hope with a code that triggers it ?
  • PaulHPaulH Member
    I just installed 2017.9. On the Player on Windows the TextFields using TTFs have become blurry, similar to how they looked on WinRT if the fonts were created before the initial window sizing took effect. I don't know yet if this only effects the Player, but right now small text is almost unreadable. I didn't see this on 2017.8.2. Any ideas?

    I've figured it out. In the Settings dialog for the player, on the Configurations tab, the resolution was set to 320x480. Changing that to the resolution of the monitor where I run the Player brought back the crisp text.

    Well, I found a gem.
    local bgimage 	= Pixel.new(Texture.new("app/gfx/bg.jpg"))


    If I try to load (big) image as Pixel, instead Bitmap, Player gives error after closing

    Guys, My prior version of Gideros, in the export dialog, had "choose plugins to export". I just installed the new one. No such button". How can I include plugins now(easily)?

    Never Mind! I see that they are now part of the project! Very Nice!!!
  • I am getting "Fatal Exception: com.giderosmobile.android.player.LuaException: Invalid font size." crash report. But it doesnt happen on every sessions. Randomly, it crashes the app even if the font size is valid.

    Nice catch @Yan, Pixel wasn't freeing textures leading to memory leak and crash on QT exit. I fixed it for next release.

    Nice ! Might it be a reason of memory leak if I use Pixel also to show particle with a smaller 15x15 pixels sprite ?
  • hgy29hgy29 Maintainer
    Impact is quite minimal if you reuse the same texture files, because gideros caches them anyhow, so not sure if this would be a reason in your case.
