JPEG quality setting syntax

I use this command to save the screen as an image file. The docs mention that default quality setting is 90, so I want to reduce this to create smaller files. But there is no example in the docs using the quality setting, so I am not sure how to set it. I did try some variants, but either it was ign...

Re: Very simple Exit-the-maze game

jPV: Thank you for pointing this out. I must admit I have made a similar mistake in some of my other programs, so I will need to update these as well. For smooth movement I did choose to use only 1 pixel movement per cylcle, and I notice that using vwait() in this example will limit the character ma...

Very simple Exit-the-maze game

This is a simple basic exit-the-maze game made for beginners. The purpose is to show how easy programming in Hollywood can be, so this first code is stripped down to just what is needed to make it run. I might add more features to in in follow up posts later. Prerparations: You should make an image ...

Re: Detect incoming calls on android

Here is a small app for testing this with hollywood player on android. I just realized that my example shown above was not a good example, since installeventhandler must be put after function in order to work. @DISPLAY {Title = "Test", Width = 640, Height = 480, Color = #BLUE} Function p_HandlerFunc...

Which Android version and how do you switch to another app? I have tested on android 9.0 (my main phone), 8.1.0(tablet), and 4.2.1(old phone) The way I switch to other app is tested on all devices, by either pressing the home button, or use the menu button to show all running apps and select anothe...

Re: Makedir on SD card failed

Please post a minimal (!) test script, the code in the original post seems like an excerpt from something bigger... the code in the original post actually only need a couple of endif's to run. But here is an even smaller piece of code sufficient for testing If PermissionRequest(#PERMREQ_WRITEEXTERN...

Re: Makedir on SD card failed

This was on android 9, but I also get the same error on my tablet, which runs android 8.1.0, and on my old phone with android 4.2.1. I also did a test by using t.t.ExternalStorage instead of t.SDcard, but this also result in a similar error. Using ES-fileExplorer I do notice that if I stay at folder...

Re: Detect incoming calls on android

The InactiveWindow event handler is supported on Android but I don't know if it's going to trigger on incoming phone calls... it should definitely trigger when hiding the app. Unfortunately it does not seem to trigger on android for me. I have this piece of code in my game, which does set the game ...
