Android 10 compatibility

Google Play Store has been nagging me about updating my apps to be "API Level 29 compatible with Android 10" for a while. They no longer will let me upload OHR games and are going to make my games down in November unless they are compliant.

Here's a list of the Level 29 requirements: https://developer.android.com/distribute/best-practices/develop/target-sdk.html

Is there a plan to update OHR for Android 10 in the near future? If not, I can always just distribute Android games on other platforms, although Google Play is the biggest.

Thanks guys!

Oh, yeah, I have to bump that target api number. Hopefully I can find my notes on how that works.

Thank you for reminding me. I got a similar notice for my android games, but got distracted and forgot

According to the "Plan for Android 8.0 target" mailinglist thread, both project/project.properties and project/AndroidManifestTemplate.xml need changing.

Quote:
When resizeableActivity is set to false, apps can additionally specify a minAspectRatio which automatically letterboxes the app on narrower aspect ratios.

This sounds important and useful. sdl-android stretches to fill the whole display, it doesn't preserve aspect ratio, which looks pretty bad if there's a significant mismatch.

And more changes to external storage permissions, again. We still haven't fixed access to external storage that was broken by Android 8.
