Title: Art of Earthify (3D live wallpaper)
Post by: AeroShark333 on May 28, 2017, 02:34:19 am
Hey everyone,

I wanted to share my newest live wallpaper I made using this library! :)
The live wallpaper is actually based on a previous live wallpaper I made but I was not really satisfied with the result there.
I didn't work on this project too much due to studies but when I had some free time I'd be working on this.
Anyhow, I am really satisfied with the outcome of how it is now. :D

Original project: http://www.jpct.net/forum2/index.php/topic,4784.0.html (I just noticed all these dead links but I blame DropBox for that... ::) )

Thank you for the positive feedback! :)

About the app not responding things... Is it possible to press 'Report' when the dialog pops up?
So I can know from the Google Play Developer Console where exactly the app hangs because I'm not really experiencing what you have myself with all the devices I got... :/

Thanks a lot!
I guess I solved it for the live clouds (silly mistake really...  ::) haha)

I got another crashreport though (I think from your device)
However, I have nooo idea how to solve this one...  :-\
Though when looking at the stacktrace, it looks like some kind of crash I used to have earlier on my current phone and previous phone...
Which I kind of solved then by having 'Config.blittingMode = 8'...
I added an option in the live wallpaper settings for that mode: Settings -> Renderer -> Blit compatibility mode

Code: [Select]
signal 11 (SIGSEGV), code 2 (SEGV_ACCERR)

It never Crashed on my device , I can assure you that, :)
But even after the update , it still displays "Not Responding" .
But if kept long enough , the scene is loaded behind the dialog box...

Hmmm, I see... it's probably because of the other error then in my previous post...
It might not seem like it's crashing but I think it does (and it automatically reports it to the Google Play Developer Console)
(Google changed some things that bugs get reported automatically sometimes.
But it's nice to hear that it's still functional nonetheless :)

So now... over a year later, I pretty much finished my application. (it should look a little different than the screenshots in the first post)
I never had really much time to work on it and I could probably work on it forever... but for me, I now feel like I'm done :)
I'd like to thank the people here for some of the support and I'd like to thank the maintainer(s) of the library for their awesome work on jPCT-AE! :)

I'll drop some promocodes here for you to enjoy the premium version of my app 'Art of Earthify' for free (it's not free otherwise)
How to use it? => Open the application => Unlock premium => Purchase => Press the arrow => Redeem code => Paste one of the codes below into the text field => Voila
(Note: these promo codes last till end of August; there are only 33 promo codes)

I've used the first code from your list. The rendering looks really nice and there seem to be lots of customization options. Well done!
I'm not using live wallpapers at all, but if I would...this one looks like a really nice choice.

Thank you for your kind words! :)

I do think live wallpapers have a bad reputation among most people as it might possibly drain a lot more battery...
But personally I believe this mostly depends on how often you come back to the launcher/lockscreen.
However, a solid wallpaper of course uses less battery juice.

I did set it as live wallpaper on my own phone and I don't really notice much of a difference in battery usage (but then again, I don't play around on my homescreen/lockscreen for too long).
I also set the live wallpaper on my Android TV box, where I can put all settings on max. without having to worry about possibe extra battery usage since it works on DC...  ::) ;D
