iOS to Android Switching Build?
« on: September 18, 2014, 01:22:32 PM »
I have just finished a game for iOS and I want to port it to Android. Everything is about 98% made with Playmaker, but my question is, if I switch the build platform to Android, what are the chances something will break in my game?

I know where are the iOS specific stuff is and i would take that out after the switch but I am concerned about the playmaker actions. Is there any chance of things breaking? Everything works great on multiple different iOS devices by the way.

I am asking this because I don't have an Android device powerful enough to test my game currently(I plan on getting one but it won't be for a little while). I have an old device but I am pretty sure it won't run my game(Obviously I am going to try anyway but just in case, I wanted to ask this question first).

The only plugins I am using are iOS Native which I will be switching to Android Native as soon as I get this straightened out. As well as Easy Save 2 and Simple Object pool. I know that I should ask the creators of those if they will work, but thats just some extra information for now, as I am currently worried about gameplay actions.

Thanks!

I don't foresee any problems with those that you've mentioned.

Also, remember that the android sdk includes a pretty good emulator. Other than the purchase related functions, you should be able to test everything else on the emulator, including leaderboards, achievements etc.

Thanks for the reply! One of my friends was telling me about the emulator, I had no idea that it had the ability to do what it does. I will have to try that. On my last game I just went straight to the device to test so I never tried it but now I might have to.

Thanks again!
