I downloaded Adobe AIR 18.104.22.168 Android (15.8 MB) and extracted the zip to a folder.
In attempting to add this SDK to Flash CS6, I get the error: The selected folder does not contain a valid AIR SDK.
i'm pretty sure you don't have flash pro installed on an android os, so that wasn't the correct sdk.
your flash pro must be installed on a mac or win computer. use the mac or win sdk.
I used AIR 22.214.171.124 SDK for Windows and the app icon is still only half the proper size.
are you displaying on a retina device and don't have retina icons.
To my knowledge, it is not. Besides, the app icon that resulted in the Air 3.2 SDK publication was the perfect size.
The same issue occurred to me as well.
I am not sure if this will work but i intend to do it on the next app I will be testing.
I never tried it but maybe since flash asks for a 32*32, etc.
I suggest you just add just your 72*72 sized image and try. I have no guarantee it will work but I suppose its worth a shot.
Flashy, thanks for the suggestion. I tried it and got the same half-sized icon. I even tried it with no icons and Adobe's default icon also appeared half-sized.
As I mentioned above, the icon appears full-sized when AIR 3.2 SDK is used (was something changed on the way to 126.96.36.199?).
On the bright side, the icons appear correctly on an Android tablet, iPod, iPad and iPhone.
Maybe these comments can help the Adobe developers get to the bottom of this?
I don't know, the same thing happened to me.
I was using AIR 3.2 and my app would stop working but icon was correct.
Now I have AIR 15.something and it runs but the icon is very tiny
Lets Hope Adobe fixes this bug in the next version of AIR(Air 19 maybe) or is there some kind of workaround.
- In your flash project, set everything up in the publish screens.
- Under include files, add the 96x96 icon and the 144x144 icon.
- Close publish dialogs.
- Manually edit the manifest to add in the 96 and 144 icons
- Close XML
- Goto file XML descriptor properties - change to read-only
- Back to Flash and File - Publish
I don't think you need to do the read only step. Also, the full set of icons is longer now. These are the sizes you want:
Thanks Flashy, it worked!!!
However, this shouldn't let the Adobe developers off the hook - we shouldn't have to jump through these hoops and they had it right once with AIR 3.2 SDK.
My experience tells me that without the Read Only step, the publishing process replaces the icons listed in the <icon> section of the XML file with your choices of uploaded icons in the icon tab of settings.
For example, if you fill the <icon> section with all the icons you list and choose to upload NO icons in your publish settings, the Adobe default icon will appear for the app.
I know this sounds dumb bu well I tried to publish an app of mine yesterday and I changed the xml & published but after publishing the xml reverted to normal I did this after I found the solution buried deep in the web. So how did u do this.
I know this is kind of dumb but help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Flashy, I'm not sure what you are asking. My previous comment was meant to say that I think the Read Only step in your suggested solution is most important for the device icon to appear full-sized.
Sorry my bad I misunderstood something forget it and btw was my answer correct.
If so please mark it as so others who visit the thread can know the right answer.
I have some interesting news...
I'm updating an Android app, using AIR 18 in Flash Pro 2015. It was a good chance to check what I've said about icons.
Sure enough, I can add the seven icon sizes to the XML, and they stay intact. Even if I go in and change some things in settings, or stop manually managing the ANEs in the app, the icons do stick around. The final APK has all the different resolution icons in it.
But, on an S5 the home screen icon was generic and small. That was after doing some debug tests.
The interesting thing is that if I went into publishing settings and did a release build, straight onto the S5, the icon then looked correct.
After that I couldn't get the small generic icon back, any kind of build would still show a correct icon.
Strange, Adobe still looks like it has a whole lot of bugs to fix.
