[Solved] Choice GUI is not showing up properly in Android

#1 Post by NotReality_ » Wed Aug 14, 2019 11:42 pm

I recently export my only game i ever made in renpy to android, but now the Choice GUI is not showing up.
To short things up, i already included the screenshots of what happened.

This is what happen in my android phone.

And, this is how it should (taken from my cheap lappy)
So, how i can fix this?

I may slow to respond, because i posted this during school breaks.

The folder gui/phone/ has all the assets for Android.
This particular bug has been present for a long time, essentially the image for choice menu backgrounds is missing from the gui/phone subdirectory

Possibly the choice menu background, because in my opinion, pc and android had different folders with it, so you could make a background for it and it may work for some reason.

Just try and if the transparent background is gone, just an opinion how to fix it.

If it’s a bug, has someone created an issue on GitHub so that PyTom knows to look at this?

No, I've never created an issue on github (don't know how), but I have posted it on the forums several times.

First of all, sorry for very late respond. Yesterday i went home at 6, and arrive at home at 7. So i spent the rest of night just sleeping.

Second, if you don't mind. What is the name of the choice menu background file? I will try to find the workaround for this issue.

Third, is the the file is already missing before its packed to apk, or the file missing after it. If so, then my workaround will... maybe not work.

No worries - just understand that things mentioned here don’t always get noticed by PyTom, since he hardly has time to read every post. If you want to make sure it’s in his queue to get looked at and fixed, you can go here https://github.com/renpy/renpy/issues and create a new issue. That’s how he tracks what needs to be worked on.

Obviously, his life will be a lot easier if you describe simply and clearly the nature of the problem and how to recreate the issue. I’ve reported several issues that way, and they’ve usually gotten fixed in the next release.

Solved, i already found the workaround for now.
I just copied choice_hover_background.png and choice_idle_background.png from \game\gui\button to \game\gui\phone\button, and surprisingly enough for me, it works. Thanks for everyone who already replying to this post.

Marked as solved, i think.

Yes, that is how exactly it works, they had the same images but obviously to copy it with no problem.
