Need help on "build failed" Crosswalk

  • Hi, I could really need some help with this.

    When I try to build in intel xdk using the "crosswalk for android" I get this message:

    "An error occurred while building the application. Verify your build assets are correct and try again."

    I have built this app before, and it worked, but now somehow, it doesn't.

    I tried with other apps, and they worked. It's just this one

    And I don't have any different plugins for this.

    In the intel buildlog, it says:


    .../tools/ant/build.xml:720: The following error occurred while executing this line:

    .../tools/ant/build.xml:734: Compile failed; see the compiler error output for details.

    I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out, David

  • Hi david88eve,

    That code does look like a plugin is added, or the project name is messed up. Double check your project settings for android-crosswalk builds and also make sure you do not have plugins installed in the intel config additions file.

    Worst case, try creating a brand new app and copy the contents over

  • Thanks for the info imafett.

    Tried what you said, but it still would not build.

    Heres what I ended up doing.

    * I updated intel xdk to newest version (was on 1332)

    * Started a new project and named it something else

    * Built it successfully with crosswalk stable (forgot to change to beta)

    * Changed to crosswalk beta

    * Rebuilt, and failed (now with some other error)

    * Changed from app version 0.0.1 to 0.0.2

    * Changed from app version code 1 to 2

    * Rebuilt, and success!

    But my game runs poorly on my htc one x..

    Quick question: I've created a game with size 320x180, less than 10 objects, 60fps in chrome preview, 8% cpu in chrome preview, and 15 collision checks per tick.

    The game keeps missing collisions and runs very choppy.

    Am I missing something, or is crosswalk just that bad.

  • Well, you are running an almost 3 year old Android device. I have an HTC one test device and it does run pretty bad, but so does everything else on it (edit).

    Really, you can't remotely compare a desktop to that phone (quoting the 60fps n Chrome Preview). Do you have another device or an APK that I can test on. I do a lot of testing on a Galaxy S3 or Nexus 4 at work (baseline for newer phones in the last 2 years)

  • Ok, will have to update then

    Btw. Now I get this error with intel xdk:

    Any Ideas?

  • Figured it out. Now it was project name like you said in your first post
