Howto run an android project using an emulator

I created an android project (for the first time) and compiling works, but then it asks “Select device” and there’s nothing I can select,

how do I setup an android emulator?

You can do some basic stuff in the Android Emulator from Google, but don’t expect too much from it.

You have do the following things:

  • Create an AVD with a system image of Android 4.1.x.
  • Set the parameter hw.gpu.enable=yes.

    The BasicGame template works fine, but the terrain examples won’t work for me.

    I’m eager to see your results with the Android Emulator from Google. I hope you post it in this thread.



    Edit: NiftyGUI works too, but without the fading effects.

Thanks, will try it out soon.

Ah, with the Android SDK you can create AVDs.

They work perfectly, altho they are quite slow compared to normal smartphones.
