Chartboost bug on device.

Hey guys,

I think I found a legit bug. My game displays a chartboost ad in between scenes but for some reason, on my device only, the scene never transitions to the next round. Everything is fine in the Android Simulator and also if I run the apk direct through Android Studio. This only occurs on the device...

My code:

in main.lua:
require "ads"
 
chartboost = Ads.new("chartboost")
chartboost:setKey("myKey", "myOtherKey")
and in the loading scene's init():
	chartboost:addEventListener(Event.AD_RECEIVED, function(e)
		print("Ad received.")
	end)
 
	chartboost:addEventListener(Event.AD_DISPLAYED, function(e)
		print("Ad displayed.")
	end)
 
	chartboost:addEventListener(Event.AD_DISMISSED, function(e)
		print("Ad dismissed.")
		sceneManager:changeScene(scenes[3], 1, SceneManager.fade, easing.linear)
	end)
 
	chartboost:addEventListener(Event.AD_FAILED, function(e)
		print("Ad failed.")
		sceneManager:changeScene(scenes[3], 1, SceneManager.fade, easing.linear)
	end)
 
	chartboost:showAd("interstitial");
So, it looks like something is happening when I get it from the test url on the Android Play store that breaks the event listener somehow? I mean, I guess I could disable the test mode in the chartboost web console and release the game to prod in Google Play but that's a bit of a gamble.

    @Astirian if you connect your device to your PC with a USB cable you can see debug text inside LogCat in Android Studio. Maybe check to see if 'ad displayed' etc actually appears in LogCat?

    It may be simpler that that; why not build a player on the device, so you can get the debug prints straight to the Gideros console?

    Yeah log cat's logging the ad messages, so the events are processing. I tried to get the wifi player working but had no luck at all.

    I've just released to production so we'll see if it behaves in the wild, yolo.

    @Astirian you could have made a beta release and we could have tested ;)

    Might have been something to do with the fact that I had 'no ads' ticked in the Google Play Console, we'll see if it suddenly starts working. Might explain why it only affects the game when it's obtained that way (i.e. through Google Play)? Anyway @antix I'm sure you're curious to see how it turned out, after all this time!

    It's a bit rough but it'll do for now. If it gets popular I'll tweak some stuff I'm not 100% happy with (rock collisions and frequency of pathing checks), might even add the fire breathing doods. :)

    I ended up using a mix of render target and grid systems. Which was insane (I know that now) but I made it work heh.

    Edit: Also I realised I'm not handling AD_ERROR, only AD_FAILED. So, that's important. ;)

    OK, so still no joy here @antix @totebo. Here's the LogCat dump. The advert displays fine but on dismissal my transition to the next scene just never happens...

    Spoiler tag for the ugly log.

    @Astirian interesting. I can't see whats happening in the LogCat dump.. I really hate those things with a passion :D I don't see any of your debug texts being printed in there at all so I wonder if it's actually functioning at all.

    I downloaded and on my Pixel C I got to level 5 before dying (after a few attempts) and no ads showed at all but the game never failed to advance to the next level.

    What scaling mode are you using?
    - On my Pixel C it seems to use FIT_WIDTH and the top and bottom if the screen are chopped off.. I don't see half of the logo at the top and do not see the credit banner at the bottom. Luckily there was enough of the gamepad showing ingame that I could still move down.
    - On my Nexus 4 it looks to be FIT_HEIGHT because I can see the logo and bottom banner but a little is clipped off the sides of the display.

    I found it difficult to discern where I was facing and shooting. I think the player should face the way they are moving and I think there should be some visual projectile when you fire so you know where you are firing. From the looks of it when you shoot it picks a target within a certain range and damages them. If they are in range the next time you shoot.. they get shot again, otherwise it seems to select another target in range.

    I found it kind of difficult to use the rocks to squash the bad guys. The rocks seemed to be just something to avoid because I got stuck on them mostly when trying to use them and died heheh. After a bit more practice I figured out how to use them correctly ;)

    Anyway, you finished your game which is totally awesome! I like the ghostly barrels and being able to dig freely about the map, well done :)

    Thanks @antix!

    Yeah, I overwrote the print function to squeeze every last bit of performance out of it. I usually comment that out when troubleshooting.

    I'll have to check the screen settings in the project to see what I've done there.

    Funnily enough I have most of the directional shooting code written but I had put it on the backburner and then got used to the current scheme haha! But I hadn't considered a visual projectile. Good feedback, thank you. :)

    I'm very proud of my ghosty() function indeed. :smiley:

    Interesting you made it to round 5, the ads are supposed to trigger on multiples of 3, although that could be a good thing. It's a mystery to me why my device doesn't respect the scene transition in AD_DISMISSED.

    Leaving the print statements inside the ad code isn't a biggy, it won't save much performance since there is no need for performance when those events happen :)

    @Astirian are you aware that it's not available in italy?

    @Astirian still not available, but maybe we just need to wait some time that the "thing" propagates through gplay store :)
