RenPy new version - install Android SDK again...

#1 Post by Apa » Sat Jan 20, 2018 1:32 pm

This is follow up to thread
>>Android Build failed Renpy 6.14
>Please hit "install sdk" again.
I do not install SDK to every RenPy version.
I create link instead
Directory of C:\renpy-6.99.14-sdk\rapt

I wonder if you can change RenPy to look up Android SDK in env. instead of installing it:

If RenPy needs specific Android SDK Tools Revision or Build Tools, RenPy can try installing it into existing Android SDK or log error message and we can install it ourselves.
Android SDK is relatively big and It’ll be great if we don’t have to download it every time. :oops:
Thank you!

Okay, I have the same question. Can I change SDK Api level to like 28? Because Google will require minimum Api level 26 for the apps from August!

Yeah, both of these things concern me too, though I was just assuming that the latest version didn’t have the api issue. August is just round the corner and I have a new app and a few updates in progress. I’m still running an older version of Renpy, do you still get this issue on the latest version?

A total rewrite of the android build system is being worked on. The goal is going to be to use a version of the Android SDK installed using Android Studio, and that's going to support a new API version. It's going to be tight to meet the deadline, but I hope to at least have a compliant prerelease out by then.
