How to use?

The Mobile Master Collection is a plugin collection that provides native mobile features for game application projects in both Construct 3 and Construct 2.


It is easy to add new features into your mobile application projects, you will only need to follow the steps below.



1. The first step is to add one of the native mobile plugins in the Mobile Master Collection, into your Construct 3 or Construct 2 project.



2. The second step is to add your native mobile credentials.


Some native mobile plugins require you to input your application credentials, for example in the Mobile Facebook plugin, you need the application id and application name of your Facebook mobile application project, both for Android and iOS to successfully export and build.


This is required to establish the link between the Android SDK or iOS SDK with the application project.

 

Guides

The Mobile Master Collection uses native mobile implementations and features​, which means projects need to be exported and built before use or debugging.


Native mobile features are calling Java or Kotlin methods on Android, and Objective-C and Swift methods on iOS. Therefore, application projects with native mobile features require exporting to Android or iOS to be able to run properly.

Built-in Debugger

There are times when there are issues with your projects and you are you not sure what is causing it. In this case, you can debug your application by looking at the browser console, and check if there is any error.

If there is no error, then it might be something else that is causing it. To properly debug, you need to analyze your project step by step, and in order to do that you need to be able to know the processes happening in your project and its objects.




In this case, the Mobile Master Collection plugins provide a debug property, which will allow you to see what is happening internally. In order to do this, please select the mobile plugin, look at the properties section and look for the debug property toggle.


The debug property toggle will log processes the plugin deem as important to display to the developer, including ordinary logs, warnings and even detailed errors.


After you are done debugging your application, make sure to disable the debug toggle property. This will not cause any issues with your application, even if accidentally setting this enabled for your production release builds. However, just because it is harmless, there is no need for this additional process to keep running, therefore make sure to disable this afterwards.

Android debugging steps:

  1. To debug Android applications, you need an exported debug .apk, or build your project in Android Studio or Cordova, and click the debug build button.

  2. From your mobile device or Android Studio / Cordova virtual device, enable USB Debugging. If you are using a mobile device, you also need to connect both ends of your USB cable to your mobile device and computer, and make sure your computer recognizes the device for debugging.

  3. Launch your mobile application in your mobile device or virtual mobile device.

  4. Launch Chrome's inspect devices page from your computer.

  5. Type into the address bar in Google Chrome: chrome://inspect/#devices

  6. Look for your application in the applications list of your connected device.

  7. Click the inspect or inspect fallback button. This will finally launch the debugging console.


iOS debugging steps:

  1. To debug iOS applications, you need to create an Apple Developer account.

  2. Requirements

  3. Testing iOS device

  4. These are necessary to create the credentials, for application build and testing. Afterwards, completing the requirements for publishing.

  5. Certificate (p12) and Provisioning Profile

  6. These need to be configured to be able to build the iOS application for testing.

  7. Latest Xcode does not require this anymore.
