Still having issues with Nvidia shield and white screen, have deleted the /android/data/com.unbrokensoftware.launchbox folder from the internal storage but still a no go. Uninstalled and reinstalled, S9 is still reading with no issues however.

 

Did you export games to an android folder from launchbox pc and copy it to the shield? Not sure if you need the games or not but I have my exported folder transferred and it works fine after 0.10 update.

After deleting the android/data/... directories on both the internal and sdcard, I reinstalled V0.10 on my Galaxy S8 and after the initial white screen freeze, further attempts to start the app seem to work now. I can try this on my Shield tablet later tonight.

Progress!

 have you been able to write to your SD card and not just the phone memory? if so do you need to give ppermissions? I checked the app on my S9 and it has write access to my SD card

It works fine on my phone memory but cant get it to show on my sd card

 

cheers

Sorry, I should have mentioned that. No, I have not been able to read from my sdcard. Even though the app seems to create the directory on the internal and sdcard after I deleted them, only by moving the directories to the internal have I been able to get it all to work. I am sure this will be addressed.

Getting Unexpected Error when trying to install it from The Google Play Store.  Using my PC via Chrome to send to Nvidia Shield TV as it's not listed in Google Play directly on my Shield.  The option to install isn't grayed out so I should be able to install directly from there instead of having to sideload.  Any suggestions?

This may be a dumb question but does the "export to Android" option only appear in BigBox? I have the latest Launchbox for PC and trying to figure out how to export for Android but cannot see the option. I'm REALLY hoping the Android version will not require a PC in the future. Thank you.

So I have to ask, where to get the latest beta? I get 9.10 when I download for PC with the email address.

Thought i'd leave a comment, as i couldn't get any of the games to launch after clicking the boxart, it would just quit back to the shield launcher, I have a ssd set to internal storage, and my retroarch was using my ssd's shared storage, moving retroarch back into the shield's internal storage fixed the problem.

I finally got this working last night here is what I had to do. 1st it installed the application to my internal storage then I went into the phones settings and moved the application to my SD card. At that point I did a export from my PC and exported to my SD card, but every time I opened the app it did not show any platforms despite me being able to see them when I browsed to that folder on the SD. So I went poking around in the internal storage and found that there was some files including a license a few other files that were present there but not on the SD card after moving those files to the SD card and reopening the application I could now see my platforms and launch games using RA. Hopefully this will help out anyone else trying to run it from a SD card.
