C3 Remote Preview (Full Screen Problem & Slow) On Mobiles

From the Asset Store

  • Hi Ashley

    Is there any possibility that you can show us how you managed to preview in C2 with a full screen? to use it with our "C3 LOCAL PREVIEW"

    Why does the C3 Remote preview doesn't preview in full screen and on C2 it works?

    I'm wasting many many hours trying to make the mobile game UI as I needed to test in full screen to make work for both (Web & Mobile) but it's very difficult and time-consuming as I have to export each project and install it on the phones, makes changes export again etc.... just to test them in full screen.

    Also on old phones like iphone6, it's still loading very slow the C3 remote preview. I don't understand why you don't include the C2 preview over wifi into c3? as this works perfectly, it loads the games very fast and also it previews them in full screen so it's easier to make mobile games and test them.

    If you don't want to add it in c3 because you want to leave the "C3 remote preview" as a Paid feature then you can add the C2 preview over wifi in c3 as paid feature too, so you don't lose anything. I really don't understand why you remove it when you could have added them both as paid features. You made our lives so hard for making mobile games.

    I don't know what you mean. I would have thought they both displayed the same in a mobile browser or supported the "request fullscreen" action equally. What difference are you referring to exactly?

    Also as I've said in the past, remote preview should be as fast as local preview, so long as the device can establish a LAN connection. Whether or not that happens depends on your network configuration, which is out of our control unfortunately.

  • Hi, Thanks for your response,

    If I Remote Preview on C3 into my iPhone6 this is how it will look like using Scale Outer:

    it adds the top and bottom grey bar which makes it difficult to set the UI for all the screen sizes + desktop

    Also, I tried to add Request full screen with events but that doesn't work either

    =====================================================================================

    But if you use C2 Preview over wifi it will go full screen automatically no events needed, this is how it looks like:

    No Top or bottom grey bars

    So this is exactly how it will look like if you export it to the App store with Cordova so it's easier with c2 preview over wifi to create and adjust all the UI as you never need to export it just to see how the UI will look like at full screen, saving you the need to export each time just for testing UI etc....

    Yes, I understand, that's why I was asking the why? because as a company knowing that no everyone has fast internet normally you would add the tech that would cover most of the cases and that it will not depend on the internet so everyone can experience fast-loading the same as C2 Preview over wifi does just to be on the safe side to appel all the customers not only the ones that have fast internet, I guess wouldn't hurt to add as an extra the C2 preview over wifi and don't forget that also has the bonus that it previews directly on full screen on mobiles which is very important if you build Apps because otherways it forces you to export as Cordova and install on the phones each time just to test the UI etc... to see how it will look on real life. You will fix two problems at once.

  • I didn't know there was any difference in Safari between C2 and C3's previews. Their fullscreen rules are obscure, undocumented and change pretty much every Safari release, so it's hard to know why that happens or what to do about it.

    Browsers don't have permission to run a HTTP server, which makes it impossible to implement preview-over-Wifi in the browser, which is why we made Remote Preview instead. Since that's the only option, it would be better to try to figure out why it's not working at LAN speed for you and what could be done about it. It seems it's working fine for the vast majority of users, as complaints about it seem to be rare.

    I see, is understandable

    Hoh ok I didn't know that I guess not much it could be done, good to know so I don't hold any hopes.

    I understand

    I must be living in a very difficult area as there are just one or two internet providers here, will be nice if it was available that Virgin internet provider as they are the only company that has real fibre optic with high speed.

    Though our "C3 LOCAL PREVIEW" works really well for me, as fast as C2 Wifi preview or faster and it's consistent because it never fails, the only issue now is that full screen I cannot get it to work which will make it perfect. It Will be helpful if you have any idea how we could make it work in full screen when we export for HTML to work with our "C3 LOCAL PREVIEW" for testing purposes only, that will be the best possible solution as it works fast even in older phones like iphone6 etc...

    I will not take any more of your time then and thank you very much for your time.
