Direct comparison of medium sized game Flash/AS3 vs. OpenFL/Haxe + Issues


#184

Have you seen https://github.com/HaxeExtension/extension-iap? Do you think this would cover it?


#185

Hi, very nice. Will check it!!! Thank you!


#186

Hi,

I have some code based on “DisplayingABitmap”. It looks like the following.

package;

import openfl.display.Bitmap;
import openfl.display.Sprite;
import openfl.events.MouseEvent;
import openfl.filters.ColorMatrixFilter;
import openfl.Assets;

class Main extends Sprite {

	static var PF_FILTER_BLACK_WHITE : ColorMatrixFilter = new ColorMatrixFilter([1 / 3, 1 / 3, 1 / 3, 0, 0, 1 / 3, 1 / 3, 1 / 3, 0, 0, 1 / 3, 1 / 3, 1 / 3, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0]);

	private function onMouseOver(event: MouseEvent) {
		cast(getChildAt(0), Sprite).getChildAt(0).visible = !cast(getChildAt(0), Sprite).getChildAt(0).visible;
		cast(getChildAt(0), Sprite).getChildAt(1).visible = !cast(getChildAt(0), Sprite).getChildAt(1).visible;
	}

	public function new () {
		super ();
		var bitmap1: Bitmap = new Bitmap (Assets.getBitmapData ("assets/openfl.png"));
		bitmap1.visible = true;
		var bitmap2: Bitmap = new Bitmap (Assets.getBitmapData ("assets/openfl.png"));
		bitmap2.visible = false;
		var bitmap3: Bitmap = new Bitmap (Assets.getBitmapData ("assets/openfl.png"));
		bitmap3.visible = true;
		var sprite: Sprite = new Sprite();
		sprite.buttonMode = true;
		sprite.addChild(bitmap1);
		sprite.addChild(bitmap2);
		sprite.addChild(bitmap3);
		sprite.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OVER, onMouseOver);
		sprite.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT, onMouseOver);
		sprite.filters = [PF_FILTER_BLACK_WHITE];
		addChild(sprite);
		sprite.x = (stage.stageWidth - sprite.width) / 2;
		sprite.y = (stage.stageHeight - sprite.height) / 2;
	}
	
	
}

So sometimes the sprite disappears when hovering over it or leaving it with mouse pointer. On Safari/MacOSX it always disappears if switching to another application window or changing desktop and switching back after that. Or after opening/closing the console pane in the browser window.

I have a workaround for this in my code now. So I have no hurry. Thought you might be interested anyways.

Many thanx and

Best regards
Andreas

#188

Hi,

Ok. Fixed it by manually compile master branch and using install.sh.

Many thanx and

Best regards
Andreas


#189

Sorry about that,

You should be able to use haxelib dev extension-iap path/to/your/git/repository and lime rebuild extension-iap ios to rebuild the binaries


#190

Hi,

short question. I can not get the example to work regarding payment. I can click a package to buy but then nothing happens. The console states:

I/trace   (13326): Store.hx:145: IAP: Available: true
I/trace   (13326): Store.hx:156: initFailed
...
I/trace   (13326): Store.hx:101: gold_x_1k
I/trace   (13326): Store.hx:382: PURCHASE WITHOUT IAP - productID: gold_x_1k

Which Android API level do I need to use? I have a FireOS tablet. Maybe its too outdated. Hmm. Which android version is required?

Many thanx and

Best regards
Andreas


#191

Hi,

Ok. Seems like my tablet is to old as Google Pay was introduced in 2015/2016. My tablet is from 2014 if I remember right.

Update: Android 5 is required. My tablet has 4.x.

Many thanx and

Best regards
Andreas


#192

I haven’t tried this in a long time, but I think there is something you may need to do on your account to make sure that purchasable items are set up, then devices may need to run in a special sandbox in order for your demo items to be available to “buy.”

Also, I believe that Amazon devices lack Google Play Services, so purchasing there must be done using another API. I thought I heard of a company that added Amazon support to extension-iap, though, but didn’t contribute it back. I could try and hunt it down if you need it


#193

Hi,

I will try to get a plain Android tablet. No need to support Amazon Fire tablets I guess. Would be nice still. But not required for now.

I will come back to you If I have problems with a ordinary Android tablet.

Many thanx and

Best regards
Andreas


#194

Hi,

Regarding disappearing display object containers I have this bug at multiple places and there is one I know I cannot solve on my own.

Any help is highly appreciated. I also think that this bug is kind of new.

Many thanx and

Best regards
Andreas


#195

Hi,

is there any way/chance to get focus out event with text fields working?

textField.addEventListener(FocusEvent.FOCUS_OUT, focusOutEvent);

I need this at several places. This would be amazing.

I guess doing this for text fields is not that hard as e.g. the cursor disappears if clicking somewhere else. In this place the event could be fired. Just a simple idea.

Many thanx and

Best regards
Andreas


#196

Focus events were recently improved, but if this still is not working, then we may have to write a small sample and run some tests


#197

Hi,

just in the moment I updated to latest lime and OpenFL. The issue still remains.
If you need a example I can try to set it up tomorrow.

Many thanx and

Best regards
Andreas

Hi,

any news here?

I have a crash in a Android debug build of our game. Do you have any idea? It seems like it happens randomly. Maybe out of memory or something. I have no idea. Please see attached the log:

I will test soon if this happens on iOS too. Unfortunately MacOS builds are broken currently too as there seem some misbehavior with window management or something.

It should look like.

Many thanx.

#200

The dev version of Lime has a new version of SDL that should fix the Mojave issue

It might also work better for GC, I’m not sure, are there native extensions active when it crashes on android?


#201

Hi,

I did not activate anything special. I can test dev version of lime today and report if my issues are fixed.

Many thanx and

Best regards
Andreas


#202

Hi,

Lime dev version + Mac OS build of our game does have the (initial) reshaping working, but there are other issues like missing graphics and wrong positioned display objects and such, but its a dev version so I guess I do not need to care.

Many thanx and

Best regards
Andreas


#203

Did you update GIT submodules, and perform a clean rebuild?

When we change dependencies (such as an SDL version) it usually requires an openfl rebuild mac -clean
