If I leave everything as default and use the setup screen to copy the files from the directory I was previously trying to use, it works fine.  It definitely seems to be a problem with selecting a different directory as the game files directory.

I don't know how that part works, never used it actually.
I'll try to have a look at it eventually, but right now I'm not in a mood to install Android Studio.

If someone wants to help, it would be most welcome...

Hi, Meridian.
Thank you again for Android OXCE adaptation. You do a great job. People from russian mobile community are really excited with it.
Only thing they asked - what about your plans of additional screen buttons?
Thank you again.

I'm postponing it each time I see it, because it's not the easiest nor the most interesting task to work on.

Maybe I can work on some "quick win" smaller features during Xmas... but no promises.

Does this have external sd card support (via the storage access framework) and if not would it be possible to add it to the next version?

Sorry, we're not exactly Android devs here.

Can you please write why is this needed, what problems does it solve, wtf is storage access framework and how you see it working?

https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/providers/document-provider I'm not a developer at all, so I can't answer as to necessity, but here's a basic API rundown.

    Hi again! I've been running the Android version for a few days, everything seems to be ok so far, no crashes! Thank you very much, please keep up the good work!  ;)

    I have run into a couple issues though:

    • MIDI music doesn't work for some reason (can't use a mod with custom MIDIs :( ).
    • There doesn't seem to be any support for features that require to press and hold a certain key in the desktop version (e.g. Ctrl to ignore line of fire).

    Sorry if those issues have already been brought up before; I couldn't help but mention them since they are rather easy to notice. I'd be happy to see them addressed somehow in a later version.

    Thanks again. :)

you can simulate ctrl, alt and other keys by using full-xize keyboard app, like hacker's keyboard. But simulate right mouse button looks impossible. :-(

Thanks, I guess I'll try it out if there's no other way right now... but the requirement to use third-party apps to gain access to some of the game's features is just plain wrong.  :-\
