I'm new to android dev. I would like to make a game.

I'm looking for a 2D game framework that handles all the opengl stuff,
is such a thing existing ?

I heard that submitting a game to the android market is not open to
all countries, is that true ? I'm living in France is there a turn
around to submit an appl to the market ?

2D and OpenGL? You know that OpenGL is mainly for 3D?!

Thats right. I don't know which countries have the permissions, but I
guess France is one of them.

Your welcome!

 I don't know of any frameworks as of yet -- you might try pinging
Chris Pruett to see if he's releasing his side-scrolling opengl game
any time soon (check out his Google IO talk on real time game
development for Android). Also look at his sprite method test, which
covers the typical methods of drawing 2D sprites on the screen.

1. Can't change date/time on Gingerbread? (iMX R10 and R10.1)

Hi all!

I've ported Android 2.3.3 to my Freescale iMX-based board, and for
some reason I cannot change the date or time.  (This problem occurred
on IMX's R10 and R10.1 releases.)

Changing the value in settings has no effect.  Moreover, the time in
the top-right notification area does not refresh every minute.

Logcat output follows:
I/ActivityManager( 2135): Starting: Intent
{ act=android.intent.action.MAIN } from pid 2392

I'm not sure if it's in any way related, but I dmesg output shows the

Appreciate any advice or troubleshooting tips.

Best regards,



2. Downloading image from URL with spaces in the path in Android

Hi, I want to download image from the path. This is my code:

String urlString = 
- DJB146.gif";
url = new URL(urlString.replaceAll(" ", "%20"));
bm = BitmapFactory.decodeStream(url.openConnection().getInputStream());

But it returns me null in bm. Any ideas how to make this code to work?
