I’ve written a small game, that is only controlled via some sensors. There is no touchscreninput or something similar.
The problem is, that after a few seconds of gaming, the screen turns off (because of no touch-input)
Is there something like a manifest-entry that prevents the screen from this behaviour?
The simplest would be adding
android:keepScreenOn="true" to the layout in your xml.
use this code in the your game’s Activity as first line in the onCreate() after the super call:
This will result in the System handling the screen for you.
PowerManager pm = (PowerManager) getSystemService(Context.POWER_SERVICE); WakeLock mWakeLock = pm.newWakeLock(PowerManager.SCREEN_DIM_WAKE_LOCK | PowerManager.ON_AFTER_RELEASE, "My Tag"); mWakeLock.acquire();
and put the permission in your manifest file
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WAKE_LOCK" />
dont forget to release that lock in your
You can request a WakeLock as specified here: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/os/PowerManager.html
