Reset Scene - Blackscreen

dapiondapion Posts: 353Member, PRO

Hi everyone,

I just make an app in the scene repeatedly reset.
Works well, but after each reset the scene briefly switched for a second into a black screen.
Is there a way to work around this?

I've also tried using the pause behaviour, but crashes the app each time from when the Unpause function occurs.
Think that's a bug.

Thank you in advance...
Daniel

    What rules are you using for the scene reset? Do you have any Change Scene behaviors in any of your actors?

    Maybe me just derping but would the enable ads be the problem? I mean if the ad is black and it takes up the whole screen? Just a thought

    I'm not sure. What happens if you uncheck that?

    I have tryed these two options...with ads and without ads.
    By booth the same, Blackscreen for a second.
    It's not the first time for me that I see this in my projects.

    You didn't have this issue by reset scene behavior ?

    @dadion, what is the base color of your scene? It is usually black by default.

    Now if you have a complicated of graphics heavy scene, then it can take a fraction of a second before your background overlay displays, causing the default black background to be seen for an instant.

    Change the default background to a color similar to your background overlay and see if it helps.

    He is right. You should try changing the background then seeing if it does anything

    My background color is standard black. I´ve changed it now to white but the same happens. ResetScene = Blackscreen

    Hrmm. This is most odd. My tiny brain can not think of any other problems that would cause that :p

    Is there an attribute that is part of the rule conditions that you posted above that is getting changed shortly after the scene starts? You may just have to turn off rules one by one until you find the culprit.

    Hi,
    I have to say briefly that I need the "Reset" to be display Ads.
    Previously I had used the AdMob Video Ads in my Project ...
    This I wanted to use as a kind of reward Ads.
    In addition, I do not know if I can use this Ads for my intention:-)

    Today I tried again there, but with RevMob and here not the error occurs (Black Screen).

    Therefore, I assume that it is the interplay between reset and AdMob.

    Here is a video with the "Blackscreen"

    @dapion, looking at your vid, that almost looks like a GS issue. Contact them to have a look.

    As an aside, remember that normal video ads may not be used in a "rewarded" context, it is against the ad network's TOS.

    Of course...I will contact the GS Support
    This was an attempt by AdMob ... but I also read that it is possible to use the ChartBoost Reward videos.
    I´ll try it out:-)

    Unfortunately, any kind of reward ads are not supported in GS at the moment.
