I am using AIDE to code an Android game and I want to use Andengine to code my game. I heard that it is recommended to clone the git repository since the maker doesn't compile Java Archive(JAR) files anymore. However, when I clone the git repo and try to compile a simple Andengine project I get errors saying that there is a "compilation error in x86".
This means that my only option is to use the older, outdated JAR files. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
Best How To :
Copied shamelessly from my question here!
I managed to get the cloned repo from GitHub to work with AIDE. I have an ARM Android device, and not a x86 one (I'm not entirely sure many people have a x86 Android, do they?). This might help others having this problem:
To fix the compilation errors I went into the android.mk script that initializes the building of the machine code for Andengine. I commented out the x86 and ran my app with a basic Andengine project and it worked. Apparently it was trying to build x86 machine code for my ARM device.
I now have access to the full power of Andengine and can finally trash that crappy, outdated .JAR I had been using until now. This opens up many tutorials for me to use.
