Menu missing in ninja demo
« on: March 12, 2016, 09:43:51 pm »
Hello everyone,

I am new into opengl es 2.0 android development and I already tried a few animations with motion data,
which worked quite well so far...

Now I was looking further into animating complete humanoid 3d models with bones and skins, which is the
reason I came across jPCT and the android ninja demo.

After the integration in Android Studio and a few fixes for a successful gradle build, the ninja app compiles
without a problem but I am unable to find any accessible menu. The only thing I can do is adding and removing
ninjas...

Unfortunately there are no selectable animation options or any menu buttons for starting and stopping the
animation - is that intended like this with the latest release of the Android Studio sources?

Maybe I am looking for some functionality which I saw in the demo video here:

http://www.aptalkarga.com/bones/


If I am not completly mistaken I am also seeing some error in the main.xml layout-file:

"Rendering problems: bones.sample.android.MyView class cannot be found..."

I would very much appreciate any help or hints...

Kind regards,

Ray

PS: Currently I am using Android Studio v1.4 and Android SDK 21 for compilation!

menu should be accesible via the menu button. not sure why it doesnt exist in your case.

in download section there is a direct link to apk, please install demo app from there and check if menu is accesible.

Tried that before I started going over recompiling the sources with Android Studio...

Simply nothing at all for me to see - I mean where should I expect the menu button?

Cant find any layout-file to figure out the positioning and I cant see nothing in any of the
screen corners...

Shall I make some screenshots?

the menu button in not on the screen. it's android's standard hardware menu button, must be somewhere below the screen

Omg... silly me!

Since access to the menu-functionality is hidden behind a long press on the left button of my
Samsung Galaxy S5 while the short press opens the task manager, I often kinda forget about it...

Truely shameful to even start such a topic for that!

Sorry...
