Not working glob.glob() in Android build

#1 Post by AircGroup »


I have script that auto collect assets for LayeredImage. I write method on base glob(). This gets folders with images for one art and register LayeredImage in Renpy. This method working on Windows (PC) without problem. Assets founded and i can use. But in Android build this method not working. I test on device with root and in place find not have anything assets. I think okay try use as recomend on Android device - use os.environ but this also not working. How i must do finding assets in need folders?


Code: Select all

init -9999 python:
    from glob import glob
    import os
    def APT_INIT(paths, base="base"):

        for path in paths:

            a_Images = glob(os.path.join(path, "*\\"))
            # After i filtering images.

Code: Select all

init python:
        APT_INIT([renpy.config.basedir + "\\game\\mod_assets\\APT"])
PC - Renpy 8.1.3, Windows 7.
Android - BlueStack 5, NoxPlayer, Poco X4 Pro 5G

Android doesn't write the files to disk.

You need to use renpy.list_files.
