Build Tutorials APK, and Web
Are there any build tutorials for APK, and Web? I Googled, and cannot find any..
For example lets say As a test I want to use a basic tutorial World build. Where there is a tiny amount of land, and one character to run around. Just in order to learn the Build, to Apk, or Web..
For instance I attempted, an Apk build I received errors..
I also attempted a Web build, which was successful, But I cannot find the file..

Hello,

Could you attach the error output from the apk compilation?

For web compilation please use the provided Web tutorial included in the "tutorials" project. It may be called "Web app" or something similar.
Select Web platform build target, and select publish option, it should compile and upon success it will open a folder containing the necessary files automatically for you.

The Apk error is: Application package Tutorial must have a minimum of 2 segments
I found two other websites that reference this, once is in Asian, and the other the user figured it out, but does not leave a record as to how they fixed this..

As pointed out here: http://www.monkey-x.com/Community/posts.php?topic=2917
From what Im understanding is that before I first attempted to Publish the Apk.. A pop up window popped up, and I made a name that did not contain 2 words in it... But for some reason I cannot get this window open again to edit the name..

The Web Publish, I followed the Tutorial. Im able to find the file now, and run it by double clicking on it in the Publish folder, but the html page left in the debug folder loads in browser, but leave an error of Emscriptem Exception thrown, see JavaScript console with two check boxes resize canvas, and lock hide mouse pointer and full screen button, and the window where the game would be is black with -1 in the upper left corner..

Hi,

I've answered the first question in your original thread:
http://www.esenthel.com/community/showth...p?tid=7112

As for the web, you need to upload it to your server, I've noticed emscripten has issues when run directly on your hard drive.

Ok. I Managed to change the name, and that error is fixed now Im receiving another error.

These are the 3 Errors:
Build Failed
C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\tools\ant\build.xml 601 The following error occured while executing this line.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\tools\ant\build.xml 720 The following error occured while executing this line.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\tools\ant\build.xml 734 Class not found javac1.8

Would this have anything to do with the Lib paths? If so what are the correct Lib path, and for includes.. If not what else can this be..?

Yes I have installed:
Java Se Development Kit 7 update 71 (64bit)
Java 7 update 71 (64bit)
Java 8 update 25 (64bit)

I uninstalled Java 8, and I ended up with an error.. So I uninstalled all Java reinstalled, and same error.. Then I uninstalled again, and did a registry fix. Then I had a JAVA_HOME error which I pointed windows 7 variables to C:\Program Files\Java

The build was successful after this, and so was the publish, but I am unable to find the .apk file now.... I looked in all the folders and there is no .apk
I named the app build as tutorial.test
theres a test folder and an apk folder but inside was R.java.. I can seem to find an apk file.

Hi,

Yes that could be a problem, please uninstall all Java 8 related software on your PC and keep only version 7.

After that please make sure that:
"Build\Show Options (F9)\Paths" points to Java JDK version 7

RE: Build Tutorials APK, and Web
Yea I had a path problem but I fixed It.. I replied while you replied.. I have a successful build and publish now.. But... I am unable to find the pesky apk file lol.. I looked in all the folders inside the build folder... and I cant find it...
I rewatched the publish video to see the persons location.. I noticed, that when the publish was successful, no folder named publish popped up.. I looked inside the build folder, and there is no publish folder...

I deleted the build folder, and rebuilt the application, and then did another publish, and the folder popped up, and theres an apk file in there now... I put the apk file on an Android Tablet, and it installs and loads.. Didnt have any touch countrols guess the default input code is not working.. Ill figure that out later..

Esenthel doesnt seem to check when you do it multiple times giving the popup folder as it would on a clean build, and publish..

Hi,

The Editor will open the folder with the APK everytime when you use Publish option.

You don't need to do that for test development, just connect your android device with USB cable, and press the "play" button on the bottom of the editor. It will automatically install and start the application on connected device.

Idk.. Wasn't opening for me till I deleted the build folder, and recompiled, and then published again.. For me it bugged out..
