ScummVM dev builds

Post by cire_07 »

ScummVM black screen on all dev builds for android, waited hours nothing happens. Really just want to run riven. I have done it before.

also the buildbot does not show any past versions. There is probably some index of past versions but I can't find out how to get to them, it is not sign posted form the buildbot.

Phone: Alcatel onetouch c3

please help

I thought that was the unique with this issue... But I'm running my own compiled version...

In my case, the problem is in the AndroidManifest.xml as it register two activities with the MAIN filter.

This is my custom patch regarding this..

Code: Select all

Index: dists/android/AndroidManifest.xml
--- dists/android/AndroidManifest.xml
+++ dists/android/AndroidManifest.xml
@@ -28,14 +28,7 @@

@ cire_07 I also experience the black screen for the dev builds. When using the stable versions 1.8.1 and the latest 1.9.0 I don't experience this black screen issue.

If digitall's fix works hopefully it can be applied to the dev builds, but why does it work for the releases, but not the dev builds?
