Hello! I’ve been working through the class (which is excellent, BTW), and reached the SquashyToad section. Eager to set up my Android devices, I ran into a few issues that might help others (also I had 1 question, the last bullet point). I am running on Windows 8 and Windows 10.
- When I tried to install the Android SDK’s through the SDK Manager, I got a lot of failures. Turns out in my case I had to run the SDK Manager as an Administrator (though of course my login is set as an administrator, go figure)
- I used the default checkboxes in the SDK Manager, which happened to use the Build Tools for 24. When I tried to build the demo Cardboard app in Unity, I was getting a very uninformative error about not being able to package the resources. After checking online, I discovered I had checked the version 24 build tools. I deleted that, then installed the latest version 23 build tools (since Android 6.0.1 was marked with revision 24). Then I built things fine.
- When I ran the demo on my phones, I do not see the menu panel on the floor that is shown in the video. I get the box and I can click on Cardboard to make it disappear, but no menu panel. When I had built the APK not forcing to Landscape Left, but to Auto-Rotation, I could rotate the phone and it did not have the split view (just not view in cardboard), then the button panel showed up. Any ideas why the panel doesn’t show up when it had the split-screen?
P.S. BTW I am using Unity 5.3.5f1
