Hi,
@Chris24XD
Try to DataUtils.hx in the extension folder.
And then
instead of
var stencylSound = new com.stencyl.models.Sound(-1, filename, true, false, 0.0, 1.0, ext);

put
var stencylSound = new com.stencyl.models.Sound(-1, filename, true, false, 0.0, 1.0, ext,1);

( or 0)

Hey the latest version here says v2.0, I found another version on the Discord server called "external data 4 fix" that says v1.6 .. the one linked here is the latest yes?

Assuming it is the latest, I was getting the "Not enough arguments, expected atlasID: Int" error when compiling, so I followed some  advice down below and added another argument to the line 95. Game compiles and runs but crashes when this happens: [image attached]

I have a file named "test.txt" in the extras folder and would like to modify it. There are  no other events or behaviors in this game. edit: correction there is one "when drawing" event that is drawing the text in "test.txt"

edit 2: it crashes even without the draw event

edit 3: tested on 2 different devices with different versions of android (5 and 8 ) - both crash

Any thoughts? Thank you!!! Been at this for weeks now   :'(

Oh in fact, my correction was already on gihub
https://github.com/ETHproductions/external-data/commit/63cb38ab97f80d8875c36cb0cbea0bb71f4a3c2b

Try the latest version ( which is on github), https://github.com/ETHproductions/external-data/archive/master.zip
if it still doesn't work I could install it and look at it...

Thanks for that. Tried the latest version. I am not getting the error but the extension still does not work as I expect. I must be doing something wrong? Could I trouble you to try this test? It's just a single scene. It exits/crashes every time I append text on Android.

This could be helpful: I started testing directly from Stencyl (before I was copying the .apk file and installing) and the log has an error message.

There seem to be somewthing wrong ...
A few things, what version of android do you have ?

Could you try this FileSave.hx ( I've just added a few traces) ?  and send me the log?
(put it in the external data directory)

Thank you very much! Testing on two devices with Android 5.1.1 and Android 9. I recently did a fresh install of Stencyl (Build  10558), Android SDK (via stencyl) and the JDK (8u251) No luck with that file I'm afraid. Here's what I did:

+Uninstalled previous version of the extension (deleted folders  from AppData\Roaming\Stencyl\stencylworks\engine-extensions)
+Copied the new filesave.hx file into the folder I installed the extension from (eternal-data-master.zip)
+Installed and enabled that extension
+redid the code to add text to the file as before

Thoughts? Thanks!

According to yoplalala's post, the only difference was the addition of a few traces. That means it prints a little but more information to the logs when you try to access the specific features that don't work. You'll need to share your new logs so yoplalala can see the new information.

*SMH* oooooh right. Sorry.

Do you need the bug report via the device's 'Take bug report' function from the Developer Option menu?

edit: or via Android studio? Sorry this is obvs all new to me!

It looks like it's trying to save to "/mnt/sdcard". If this is in fact the desired place to save data with this extension, you should be able to enable that by adding the following line to Settings > Advanced > OpenFL Settings in Stencyl:

Code: [Select]
<android permission="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
If this is not the desired path to be saving data to, the extension will need to be modified.

I've made a change to this extension to enable the blocks to work with the "Auto-update Running Games" option in Stencyl. For those interested, the updated engine extension is attached.

Is "Auto-Update Running Games" required for this extension to work?

(thx btw )
