Tutorial Request?
« on: August 25, 2014, 12:16:17 AM »
Can someone make a guide of some kind, on how to develop an app for android? I've been wanting to make a personal app for use with the family, and I have no idea where 2 start.

Although I have yet to try it out, you could try Xamarin, which lets you build cross platform apps in Visual Studio with designer support.
I am done scripting for RMXP. I will likely not offer support for even my own scripts anymore, but feel free to ask on the forum, there are plenty of other talented scripters that can help you.

Thanks for the fast replies o.o Since I kinda learned the basics of eclipse, I'll try gameus's first, but I'll look at Xamarin as well because I have been curious in getting into the apps market :P

Appmethod is another cross-platform system too, which is what I'm using for app building. Pretty decent it seems; you get a free trial for all of the platforms (well, maybe not all, but a few I think) and after the trial expires, you still have the android platform for free, with the option of purchasing the support for the others.
Next off, how to create a first person shooter using microsoft excel.

The app I'm going to build is pretty basic, it's not really a game. It's just an app to shuffle and call out a deck of cards for this 'loteria' game my family loves to play. I've already set up android studio, with the tutorials, so now I just need to find the time to actually work on it :P
