Re: PNG with transparent gradient image with roImageCanvas

Hi Tifroz, d, roImageCanvas combined with an roVideoPlayer is the only way to achieve this. This said, I would love to hear if there is a better alternative. roScreen combined with an roVideoPlayer is a way to do this with much more responsive graphics. Please see this thread which includes a downlo...

Re: Beta Scene Graph Components

Hi Dacian, the issue should be fixed in the next build-release. No idea when that will happen, but hopefully soon.

Re: Oops - generated a new genkey - was that a mistake?

What you don't want to do us upload an update to an existing app signed with a new genkey. So cancel those submissions. Download the existing published package and use that to rekey your device with the password you used previously to running genkey. You always want to use the same key for an app, t...

Re: PNG with transparent gradient image with roImageCanvas

roImageCanvas is really not the ideal way to do graphics or animations. It works best for static screens, and is OK for slideshows. It is possible to do a UI with it but performance will rarely be better than barely adequate except on the higher end roku devices. It is recommended to use roScreen or...

Re: Channels Installed on Roku But Not Showing Up on Home Sc

This is typically caused by a channel not including the legacy poster artwork references in the manifest, and the artwork they refer to. Make sure you have these in your manifest file: mm_icon_focus_hd=pkg:/images/icon_focus_hd.jpg mm_icon_side_hd=pkg:/images/icon_side_hd.jpg mm_icon_focus_sd=pkg:/i...

Re: Memory problems

Generally to free up graphics memory: Release any variables referencing the bitmaps, i.e. regions and sprites: sprite.remove() spriteregion=invalid bitmap=invalid then call SwapBuffers() or finish() if the screen is single buffered. That should free up the unloaded texture. If you are using he Textu...

Re: Is developer.roku.com officially dead?

I want to kill this thread because the title may be confusing to new developers coming to this forum for the first time. I'm going to attempt to rename it "Improving the developer.roku.com site".
