android image during startup
Hi again.

When an app is loaded on iOS, it shows the portrait or landscape image from the app settings until it is ready.

But i've noticed this does not work on android. The screen just stays black a few seconds. Is it not possible to do something like this on android? Or am I perhaps using the wrong image size?

Regards,

yvan

I've implemented this with a thread, loading data and displaying the logo.

Thanks, Carlos.

That won't go well with 2.0 though. All gfx's are in the Project.pak, and I would need it during load time.

The best solution would be if the images you supply for iOS would also be used on Android. I'm just wondering if there's a problem with that.

The iOS operating system displays the image read from the package. The Android doesn't have that functionality.
You need to:
Display the image as the first thing in your app, then continue to load other data. (please note that you can't display anything until engine finishes to load basic engine data like shaders)
