I don't know, I compile by a single command using gradle, see here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MeridianOXC/openxcom-android/oxce-plus-proto/README.md

Code: [Select]
gradlew assembleRelease

The libraries/tools mentioned there are bit older than what I actually use I think (can't check now)... I believe I am using android ndk r14b

I use Android Studio to do android stuff. There is a "Build Variants" panel, in which I can switch between debug and release variants. If release variant is selected, then in "Build" menu there is a "Generate Signed APK..." option. It will basically run the command you wrote, but before that I have to set my signatures (in this case I use my existing one).

The topic only comes up once in a while, but would it actually be possible for anyone but sfalexrog to implement "Force Fire" any way by now? It's incredible that this port exists and works as well as it does, especially "now" that thankfully OXCE+ is supported, but it would be just that much better with that feature intact :)

I feel horribly confused with all of this outdated stuff.

You're wrong... left mouse button click is emulated by a simple tap.

Hi guys, I just installed this port to my phone to be able to play while traveling.
Is there a way to use final mod pack?
It seems the game crashes if I activate it.
Thanks in advance!

Yes, it is possible to play final mod pack.

Which version of OpenXcom for Android are you using?

Thank you for your quick answer!
I'm using final mod pack 2.2d (latest)
and OpenXcom-v1.0-ga8e05cf
maybe it's the wrong apk?

That version is more than 2 years old... in the meantime there have been breaking changes in OpenXcom.

You have two options:

1. delete file /Final Mod Pack/Ruleset/commendations_FMP.rul
This is the file which is causing the crash... after that you should be able to start the game. However, it may happen that some features still don't work 100%.

2. upgrade the OpenXcom for Android version:
a/ either vanilla... I don't however know what the latest version is... seems like there is no recent update
b/ or you can upgrade to OXCE for Android... there is a version (less than a week old) available for download here: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,5258.0.html

Hi thanks again, I would like to proceed with OXCE but it seems I can't configure it correctly.
Are there any written instructions on how to setup it?

EDIT: it seems that trying a few times solved the issue. Now I'm trying to activate the mod

EDIT: it worked! Thanks for your time and keep up the good work on youtube :)

I've been playing on an older version of the OXCE Android port for a while and it occurred to me that it's probably about time to upgrade. I was just wondering if right clicking or control clicking had been added in any form yet? As much as I love the port, the lack of those features has been my biggest gripe.
