PdDroidParty problems

Hi everyone,

I can run all the example patches in PdDroidParty on my phone... but anything that I make from scratch will not run. I get a blank white screen. This is EXTREMELY frustrating as I am being so careful by following the examples of how they are used in the patches provided. I am not understanding what is wrong. I just made a grid of menu bangs by: 1. creating a new object 2. typing "menubang CM" (for example) 3. repeating, each with a different name "menubang DM" "menubang gm" etc... and to test it (to check it was working before I got more involved in this patch), I loaded it into droidparty and got nothing - a blank white screen.

I had the same problem when I tried it earlier with sliders instead of menubang. I gave up on that and decided to try this instead.
This is extremely frustrating as everything I read and find about this says droid party takes this object and displays it on the android device screen and this is not what is happening... does anyone have any idea as to what might be going wrong? Some common mistakes? Or more detailed documentation online? Even another forum where I could ask or find someone else who experienced the same thing?

    Hi Mike,

    well I can't say for sure but I've had some issues with a GS3 of guis not showing as they should... whereas it worked on other phones. What is your phone ? and android version ?

    could you post some code somewhere so I can test it ?

    It is always a little frustrating working with PdDroidParty as you don't have error messages to know what's gotten wrong. But in the other hand when it works it's really fast to prototype an app.

    I think it may be an issue with the GUIs displaying off screen... I got one to work, and then made a change and accidentally dragged everything to the left. When I ran that version on my phone, it was showing half on the screen, half off the screen... Is there a type of coordinate system in pd so you can tell more exactly where it will show up on the android screen?

    It's working!! I never got "menubang" to show up on my phone (android htc thunderbolt)
    But wordbutton is working fine instead. Sliders are now working and I never was able to figure out what I did wrong the first time, as far as I can tell I did the same thing I'm doing now.

    I experienced this issue too at the beginning, no idea where it's coming from :)
