As Android supports multiple devices from different manufacturers
there are different screen resolutions supported.

The table that is available at
 http://developer.android.com/intl/fr/guide/practices/screens_support.html #screen-independence
is not very clear to me.

It shows WVGA and FWVGA in MDPI for Large Screens and HDPI for Normal
screens. So, if the image is kept in drawable-mdpi and its resolution
is 320 * 480 then which image will be taken by Large Screens device of

Moreover, there are two screen resolutions for HDPI i.e. 480 * 800 and
480 * 854. So, with what screen resolution the image should be built.

I want to place the background image which looks distorted in WVGA
emulator since its resolution is 320 * 480.

I have read about nine patchable images but I think they are better
for button images and edittext images so that they can stretch
according to the data in it.

Can someone please guide me in this?

2. how to achieve multiple screen sizes in android 1.5


i am new to game development in android.

i am developing a game and i need to use android1.5 only.

i wrote sample application using 1.6 and kept drawable-hdpi,-ldpi ... and
application is working fine in emulator of 1.6.
i made apk and opened an emulator (android 1.5) from command prompt
application is also working fine.

in 1.6 if i change emulator resolutions the application UI is resizing.
but in 1.5 emulators not.

is that mean, the application developed in android 1.6 runs in 1.5 emulator
but multi screen support is not achieved?

..."how to achieve multiple screen sizes in android 1.5". multiple screen
support is available from 1.6.

thanks in advance..
