  • After 23 views and no replies I take it I'm the only one with this problem?

    Could anyone confirm if their crosswalk player is working fine on r192?

  • Is the Crosswalk Player still maintained by Intel? I thought they had dropped it. What version of Crosswalk is it using? Does it work if you build a Crosswalk app with the XDK?

  • Hi Ashley, yes building with XDK works fine. I was on an older version of the crosswalk player 5.something. I upgraded the player to 8.37.189.14, but results were the same. When previewing a game in crosswalk player on both 5.x and the latest version I just got a black screen. I could still preview through Chrome though. I then downgraded back to R191 and the player worked again. I will give it another bash tonight. Seems its just me with the issue so could be something with my setup. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thank you

  • Not sure if the player has been dropped. If so then that's ok, I'll just test with Chrome going forward. I liked the player as it is a full screen test on my tab, but I'd much rather have the latest version of C2 running.

  • We made some changes to the Crosswalk preview mode recently but I guess if the Player doesn't support Cordova (which it might not on content over http://, which the preview is) then it would be broken. I reverted it to the r191 code so it should work again. But I think nothing will work differently to Chrome in the Crosswalk Player because of that restriction. You may as well just test in Chrome and use the 'Request fullscreen' action to get fullscreen.

  • Perfect. Thanks Ashley
