I use the latest stable and build for Android.

I cant get the autorotate to work at all, it refuses to rotate and i have test all i can Think of (now is landscape left and right checked in all scenes)

If i install the app and start it direct it goes to menu for 1 sec and then back to splash and freeze, you must kill the app and restart it, is this a GS problem or android problem? (how many players do you loose due to that is the question)

The sound stops working sometimes, must restart app to get it back....sometimes it is the sound effect which is imported as sound and mp3 and sometimes the bg Music which is imported as Music and mp3.(so far never both simultaneously)

Got some problem with display text also, have a button with display text and you shrink the font size until it looks good in preview but then on device its to big and a bit outside the button and sometimes even the wrong font.

So there you have it , some major problem i need to solve Before release.

Anyone recognize this and maybe have a solution.

Thanks

    The following are unfortunate workarounds/methods i use when dealing with GS&Android, not necessarily a fix but it helps.

    I set up only 1 landscape, landscape right (home button on the right), since its the most commonly way its used.

    If i install the app and start it direct it goes to menu for 1 sec and then back to splash and freeze, you must kill the app and restart it, is this a GS problem or android problem? (how many players do you loose due to that is the question)

    In the GS publishing portal i just put a black image in the splash screen. In the actual project i set up an extra scene (which will serve as the splash screen) with just the image of the splash screen that after 1 or 2 seconds it changes to next scene.

    The sound stops working sometimes, must restart app to get it back....sometimes it is the sound effect which is imported as sound and mp3 and sometimes the bg Music which is imported as Music and mp3.(so far never both simultaneously)

    I have nothing for this, GS has had sound issues with Android for a while now i believe.

    Got some problem with display text also, have a button with display text and you shrink the font size until it looks good in preview but then on device its to big and a bit outside the button and sometimes even the wrong font.

    Certain GS fonts are not in the Android phones system so it replaces it with another font. I believe Futura is one of the fonts with problems. Try using Arial.

    So there you have it , some major problem i need to solve Before release.

    Thanks

    Hopefully this helps.

    @Lovejoy thanks for the answers. i will try only landscape right.
    I also have a black pic in portal and a own splash, like you said...but still the problem if you install and start right after.
