Título: BennuGD Packager
Publicado por: josebita en Agosto 25, 2012, 09:19:37 pm
I'm releasing a preview version of my BennuGD Packager.
Right now the idea is that it should allow you to package your games for Android easily although it doesn't -yet- allow you to do much more than the basic. Still, I believe that it includes a few useful features:


Hope it's useful:

In case it's of interest to anybody, I'm releasing updated binaries for Android with scaling fixed and scaling support in mod_multi (until now when using scaling the coordinates returned by mod_multi were wrong). Download them here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/wxhf1wd4bp01p8x/bennugd_android_20120830.tar.bz2

And replace the contents of the templates/android/libs folder with those in this package.

So, I have finally installed the android sdk on my mom's computer (a lot of packages need to be installed by googles sdk manager) and created two emulators. I looks pretty nice, but the emulators seem very slow. What do you recommend? Using a virtual device with an intel cpu?
Also, I noticed that the keyboard on the emulator window doesn't fully work. B.t.w I ordered a usb on the go adapter, and from what I've seen on youtube it looks like you can use a usb keyboard out of the box!  :)

OS?

PS: You don't really need ALL the packages the SDK Manager offers you, just the ones you're interested in :)

Windows 7 64 bit. I installed it on my mom's pc because it's faster (core I3) mine is a pentium 4 with XP sp3.

Ok. The binaries I posted support x86 for situations like this.
Be sure to install and set up the "Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager" from the SDK manager. You can find installation instructions here:
http://developer.android.com/tools/devices/emulator.html (http://developer.android.com/tools/devices/emulator.html)
Section "Configuring VM Acceleration on Windows".
Then download (if you haven't done so yet) an Android 4.0.3* Intel Atom x86 image and create an AVD for that. In the AVD options, "Hardware" section, add a field for "GPU emulation" and set it to "yes". Also, add keyboard support there.

That AVD should run pretty fast.

* x86 images for 4.1 don't seem to be available yet.

I've updated the win32 build of the packager, in case it's useful to anybody.
You can get it from here:

I've updated the PPA version and now you can add AdMob ads to your games. Right now support is limited but it's working.
You should have packages available for Ubuntu Precise and Quantal in my PPA.

You can expect win32 binaries tomorrow.

Updated windows binaries are here:
http://code.google.com/p/bennugd-monolithic/downloads/detail?name=BennuGD_Packager-win32_20121214.7z

You now need the android-13 SDK as that's what the AdMob SDK requires.

Windows packager binaries updated. There's some bugfixing and compatibility with the latest official BennuGD release (after Splinter added the CD->CHDIR alias). There's some more stuff in the mix, but I'll comment when it's finished.

Uploaded new version of the Packager for Ubuntu to my PPA, some changes:
* Added support for XHDPI icons
* Check that "main.dcb" is present in the given directory, don't assume it. If it's not present, refuse to accept the directory.
* Try to find the AdMob Ads SDK Jar, don't just assume it's the same version as mine (future-proof the packager a bit for those of you where the packager was failing because you had a more recent version of the SDK than expected).
* Only try to find the AdMob Ads SDK if you actually asked for AdMob Ads
* (Possible) Adreno GPU fix

I'm gonna create an updated version of the packager for windows, JDK and all, wish me luck.

[Edit] Binary version for Windows available here:
https://code.google.com/p/bennugd-packager/ (https://code.google.com/p/bennugd-packager/) (Please note that the packager has moved from its previous location to a new project page separate from bennugd-monolithic)

It includes binaries for ANT and Java JDK for windows but not the Android SDK because of licensing issues. You shouldn't need to install the JDK separately anymore, just run the included BAT file.
If you have any doubts, please have a look here:
https://code.google.com/p/bennugd-packager/wiki/WinSettingUpPackager (https://code.google.com/p/bennugd-packager/wiki/WinSettingUpPackager)
And then ask any remaining questions here.

Let me know if this works at all for you.

I have updated the packager to support earlier versions of Android (2.3 seems to be working, now).
https://code.google.com/p/bennugd-packager/downloads/detail?name=packager-win32-20130826.7z (https://code.google.com/p/bennugd-packager/downloads/detail?name=packager-win32-20130826.7z)

Remember to unpack it to a path without spaces and run the included ".bat" file. You'll still need to install the Android SDK separately.

The BennuGD port is not newer than the one found in the previous build. If you want to use the latest code, you must compile my code manually.

Is this new update working for OUYA as well?

Nope.*

The code for OUYA has some small issues. If you want to create things for OUYA you have to directly compile the source code:
https://code.google.com/p/bennugd-monolithic/source/browse/#svn%2Fbranches%2Fmy_monolithic (https://code.google.com/p/bennugd-monolithic/source/browse/#svn%2Fbranches%2Fmy_monolithic)


* The code does work, but joystick support is not there and pressing any button in the controllers will make your app quit.

I see. Will you be continuing working on OUYA support later?
Seems pointless for me trying to compile it myself if controller input doesn't work.
Thanks for the update!

Yes, I've got some -unreleased yet- code that is working beautifully in the Ouya.
It's got joysticks and GPU scaling.

As I said, it's unfinished yet but as soon as it's working fine I'll release the code.

Awesome, I finally got past all the confusion about java paths!
Now I can see my app on the phone!
Well, mostly. Images from the fpg are not there, and sound is missing too. Also, touching the screen doesn't work. What am I missing?

UPDATE:Ok I was able to figure out the touch thing using mod_multi. So now the touch works!
But no sound or images. I tried pulling in loose png files, in case the fpg was causing the problem, but no success there either.
I also read somewhere that using more than one sound could cause the sounds to crash, but I couldn't even get one sound working. Any advice? I'll update if I can figure anything out....

Please, make sure that your FPG files are not compressed. Compressed FPG files are not supported.

Also, please user Pixel's Pixplantilla, which includes a much newer version of BennuGD for Android which works much better.

Kind regards,

Hello, sorry to bother everyone again. I'm just really trying to figure this out. If there's a better place to ask about this, or if anyone knows some documentation to point me to, I would appreciate it very much.

I couldn't find much advice on how to use plantilla, except for this:
http://www.bennugd.fr/index.php?mod=forum&ac=voir&id=512\

I didn't understand what to do about the keystore, but I tried it anyway.
I tried following the instructions, but I think I'm missing something.


compilar.bat ran my program in bgdi
exportar-android.bat ran a command window and then opened up a temp folder with nothing in it.
The window mentioned a missing file: *release.apk
I'm not sure if that's important. I tried creating that file manually and putting it in a few different locations but the compiler never picked it up.
Here's the entire window message:

Check the "export/bin" folder in your game folder, there you should find  the file "yourgame"-debug.apk, which you can then copy to your android device/emulator and try it!  ;)
That "temp" one always comes up empty, as far as I know. Just ignore it.
