it didn’t work in Android in Dekstop it saved a file in Monkeys own folder (not app folder but the main monkey folder) when you take away the /
Nnothing happens in either platform with the /
Do i have to give Android permissions to write somehow?August 1, 2018 at 6:59 am #15209
The path given on my Samsung Android phones is
One had sdcard inserted one has not still both gives the same path from the External command.
I don’t know where to go from here to be able to load and save onto the card, have I missed something?August 1, 2018 at 7:06 am #15210
Permissins are required, but as far as I see they already added into manifest by default:Monkey12345<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" /><uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" /><uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" /><uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" /><uses-permission android:name="com.android.vending.BILLING" />August 1, 2018 at 6:48 pm #15224
Thank you sooo much it did work i was just not looking at the right place !
I was looking at the root of the sd card but what happened was that external points to android/data/com.monkey2.monkey2game/files on the internal memory. (very much like ios does with some apps)
Also I checked that on the phones with a sdcard installed the same path is created but always empty. So external means the inbuilt memory/drive, with some special path added to match the name of the app.
This is what you get when you are new to these kind of things 🙂☺👌August 1, 2018 at 7:03 pm #15225
The next issue would be to place it correclty becuase that place was a thousand clicks away. I seriosly didn’t even knew there was such a place inside my phone called Android/data/blalbbala. But it is a great startAugust 1, 2018 at 7:16 pm #15226
I made a list for anyone who might want to load and save files on the Android.
On the left is the name,on the right you see the path to put in your Monkeycode.
My files /All files = /storage/emulated/0/ (path here continues with Downloads, Playlists, Pictures etc)
Images = /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera
Videos = same as above
Music = /storage/emulated/0/Music
Documents = /storage/emulated/0/Documents
Default Monkey2 (Externaldir command) = /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.monkey2.monkey2game
device storage = /storage/emulated/0
SD memory card = /storage/extSdCard
This probably changes from models and versions but its good facts to begin an understanding how it works.
