Chroma Wave Live Wallpaper v1.05

  - Bug Fix: Black screen on Galaxy S II 
  - Bug Fix: No more horizontal line in wave gradiant
  - Update: Changed default colors

The main reason for this update is to get the Galaxy S II working.  On those devices we'd end up just showing a black screen, and it took a while to work out why this is.

Basically, despite having multiple layers of blending going on, Chroma Wave saves a ton of fillrate by rendering into a lower-res buffer first, then scaling that up to screen size.  The artwork is soft-edged so this is basically invisible.

The render buffer use for this was set to RGB, and apparently that doesn't play nice with the Galaxy SII's current drivers.  We ended up fixing the issue by setting our render target to RGBA, which isn't really ideal but at least it works.


  1. Hi,

    Is there an email ID I can reach you guys on? I write from inMobi and would like to discuss monetization opportunities through mobile payments.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.


  2. How do I get the Koi wallwaper on my Droid?
