Re: Roku Screensaver Input

I don't think you can get key presses during a screensaver. Look at the screensaver documentation here  https://developer.roku.com/docs/developer-program/media-playback/screensavers.md . check out the section "Sharing active data"  As the billboard scrolls onto the screen, set a flag in th...

My published games   http://mattmoores.com/roku/ I started really retro in 2011  but never published https://my.roku.com/add/CQGXN and this d...

Re: Free Roku Game "Nohzdyve"

Hey Komag, Thanks for playing.  You are right there is a delay between rounds.  I think I put in a button lockout to prevent the game restarting too quickly and it will continue to play if you wait just a little bit. I probably made the delay a little too long and I will fix it the next time I have ...

Free Roku Game "Nohzdyve"

I recreated the game "Nohzdyve" from "Bandersnatch" that is on Netflix. This is pure Brightscript using roScreen. https://my.roku.com/add/69GH2C It is a non-certified channel so you will need to click "ok" to the warning when installing through the web portal. More info...

Re: Nohzdyve game from Bandersnatch ported to ROKU, play for free

I see that over 100 people have viewed this post, but I only see 7 installs of the game.  Curious why there is no interest in this game?  It is free to play and has no ads. Is the non certified channel warning putting people off? Or has no one here watched "Bandersnatch" on Netflix and doe...

Re: Best Audio Format For Looping With roAudioPlayer

It would be great if we had an audio Buffer we could have access to for sound mixing and playback.   I tried writing a mod/xm player in brightscript, but since I need to write each .wav file to the device which takes over a second and the fact that brightscript can be slow at parsing large arrays.

Re: How To Minimize Unfilled Ad Impressions (when using Roku ad server)

Ditto!! I am working with another video ad provider for a channel that has gone over six months without being put on a live Roku ad server (which is a continuing saga of "Please be patient we are looking into this" thanks Team Roku.) Anyway, the other video ad provider has also only been f...

Re: Change background of focused letter of MiniKeyboard?

 You might be able to use a task node to getPNG()

https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/ifDraw2D 

The example will draw a colored rectangle and save it to the device storage then set focusBitmapUri to that file

Re: How to convert rgba to hex?

You can use a bitshift function rgbToColor(r, g, b, a,LE=false)          if LE=true'(LITTLE_ENDIAN)             return ( (a << 24) + (b << 16) + (g <<  8) + r )         else             return ( (r << 24) + (g << 16) + (b <<  8) + a )         end if      end function

Re: Video Ads not using RAF

I am considering looking into this as well.  My last 2 published channels have not been put on live ad servers and I have been writing Roku for months about this with no resolution. One channel keeps showing Roku Co. ads and the other keeps showing match.com ads. and neither are generating ad impres...

Re: Empty ad pods

I am seeing this too.  Something similar happened in in October but not this drastic. I am down to low double digit impressions yesterday. I think someone has completely dropped the ball in the ad department. I have a channel that was published 5 weeks ago and has not reported any ad impressions whi...
