Black screen on Android

Post by egorcod » Tue Dec 03, 2019 3:00 pm


I noticed that if I will start LÖVE for Android ( ... ndroid.apk) on my phone several times, sometimes I will get just black screen instead of nogame screen. Nogame screen starts as expected if I open notification bar. Can I fix that?

Did you allow it access to your media? Also try downloading it off of the play store if you haven't already ( as appose to an APK download :D )
I make games that run on potatoes :P

I have the same problem. If the app is already running, I will get a black screen upon opening my .love file. The only way to fix it is to close the Love app manually, after which any .love file opens properly. Even after generating an .apk with my game, the same problem happens: black screen if the app is re-opened while running.

I'm using a Google Pixel 2, if that is any help.

I have the same issue using the Love app on the play store. The first time I open a .love file I get a black screen, the second time it works.

I have a Google Pixel 1.
