Hi again.

Thanks.

I found out two issues in your project and after fixing them I was able to deploy to my Android phone.

Issues:

- Your code is referencing a statusMsg text field. But in your FLA the text field is called StatusMsg (with capital S). So I changed the text field name in the fla to statusMsg;

- Your JSON file is not human readable or corrupted. If you try to open it in a text editor like Visual Studio, you're gonna get a message telling you that it is either binary or uses an unsupported text encoding. So I created a temp JSON file called questions_temp.json to test the game.

Another thing I had to do was to include the data folder that contains the JSON files like I described in comment #7.

Here is a link with the corrected files and structure, and also with an APK if you want to test in a Android device right away.

I hope this helps.

Hi.

This is not an error. It's just informing you the size of the exported SWF.

Regards,

JC

Is there any error being shown in the Window > Compiler Errors panel (Option/Alt + F2) or in the Window > Output panel (F2)?

Can you post a link to your FLA? Because we need to see your code.

Hi. Thanks.

But can you share the actual FLA? You can upload it to Google Drive, Dropbox, WeTransfer, One Drive, or another file sharing service of your choice and post the link here.

But before investigating your file, I see that you're loading a JSON file. Are you including the JSON file in the AIR properties?

No, I never knew I had to upload this file there. I never got to the publish part I just kept doing test as that’s how the book did it. So was I supposed to do this after I wrote all of the code?

You can do this at any moment. You can do this now.

It's because if you don't do this, Animate CC won't include the JSON file in the app directory/bundle.

Also mobile platforms are not like desktop platforms. You can't just put your files anywhere and save/load them from any place.

You have specific folders that you're allowed to access.
