manaplus android not working after install.

Post by sudoma » 05 Sep 2019, 21:55

Hello developers and gamers.

Me and all of my friends have some problems installing the android version of manaplus.

In the playstore we download the client and if we open the client it automaticly shutdown without an error.

For most gamers already enough to delete the game.
We also did but i love the game so....

Afterwards i did some research and the error was that the client cant reach the folders/files needed to load the config files.
This was found by opening the logfile.

It seems like you need to give permissions manually to get the client working.

Solution:
1. Go to your phone settings.
2. Go to application settings.
3. Search for ManaPlus.
4. Select the permissions tab.
5. Enable Storage permissions.
6. Close settings and start ManaPlus.

Have fun playing.


Is it a bug or??? You can implent that the app is asking for permissions first.

And if you use the "scale" setting the buttons are not working correctly anymore. Better make a dot that can move 360 should do the trick. The nr1 and nr2 buttons are working like they should.

The more i play with the android client, the more it disappoints me because tmw is a wonderful game and i think you could reach a huge bulk of players if you make the client more human controllable.

I suppose its a general problem?
Cant you/we fix it?

It seems like in new versions of Android the apps have to first ask for some permissions to be able to do stuff, like ManaPlus needs the storage permission to save the updates and other file.

I had the same problem, it wasn't launching until I enabled the storage permission.

Can confirm this bug tooo, unless you give ManaPlus the storage permission, it wont work.
