SFX Latency on Android - Help!

  • Hello there,

    I am creating a small game but I notice huge latencies on Android devices, so I created an simple app to play a sound whenever a sprite is being touched.

    I have a latency of about 200-300ms on my Samsung Galaxy S6

    Same happens on an S4 and on a Tab 7.0

    Latency occurs either if exported as HTML5 or made apk with crosswalk.

    On iOS and Windows it works flawless.

    Is this normal? Is this being addressed? Can I do something about it?

    Here's a demo video: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=109_1445598241

    Here's the app I made to test https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/327 ... 0Test.capx

  • Hello Alejocazu

    Yes, there is that sound latency on android devices. Currently there is no way around it. I have found, for me at least, that the more powerful the device the lower the latency

    on my TAB 2 there is a massive latency and on my S6 very little while my TAB 3 and S4 have the same 200-300ms latency you are referring to.

  • Thanks for your reply!

    So is this a Scirra issue (i.e. can I use another program and will have less latency?) or an Android issue? Is this being addressed?

  • Not sure, but I also make android games with click team fusion 2.5 developer. There is no latency when I use that app on the same devices.

    Android sound latency has been like that for as long as I have been part of this community, there has been some talk about it on the forums but I don't think it will change any time soon. For now I've just learned to live with it.

  • Well after having downloaded a couple of applications that require short latency (a piano, guitar, drums) I've noticed that the latency, although existant, it's WAY lower than Construct's 300ms.
