renpy.input not working on Android 8.0?

#1 Post by cookienomnom » Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:19 pm

Hi guys,

Did any of you experience renpy.input() not working on Android 8.0?
Some of our players are saying that they can't get past the screen to input a text using renpy.input(), and all of them are on Android 8.0.
FYI - I've used RenPy 6.99.14. Is there a possibility that the issue will be resolved if I use RenPy 7.0?

Thanks a lot in advance!!

I remember seeing this issue crop up a couple of times, always related to Android 8.0

There is currently work being done to upgrade the Android API level to 28, which may fix the issue.
This is expected to be released with Ren'Py 7.1, so is currently not available.
