Emulator issues with 7.1.1 add in. RRS feed

  • Question

  • This maybe in the wrong forum, forgive me if it is and please move to the correct forum, but just wondering if anyone else is having an issue with the emulator with the 7.1.1 add on update, one of our projects work great with it like normal, but our other project is pixelated real bad and you can't make out the screen images or anything, I have done fresh reinstalls of both the add on and 7.1SDK and still nothing any more suggestions?



    Thanks

  • It sounds like you may be hitting a known issue with Graphics rendering (XNA) on the latest emulator images.
    (The last item in the Emulator Troubleshooting Tps: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wptools/thread/5b659eea-9a4f-45ce-8418-b9097d586197/)

    Emulator Video appears corrupted running XNA or Silverlight + XNA game.
    The emulator images included in Windows Phone SDK 7.1.1 have a compatability problem with some video cards or video card drivers.
    The problem appears as corrupted display when using the XNA graphics rendering engine in landscape orientation when system tray is visible.

    To work around this problem:
    XNA games should either set the orientation to portrait:
    graphicsDeviceManager.SupportedOrientations = DisplayOrientation.Portrait;

    -or- enable full screen mode:
    graphicsDeviceManager.IsFullScreen = true;

    Silverlight + XNA games which use landscape page orientation should disable the system tray:

    <phone:PhoneApplicationPage
    SupportedOrientations="Landscape" Orientation="LandscapeLeft"
    shell:SystemTray.IsVisible="False"

  • Thanks for that Eric, have been looking for this answer and doing this

    graphicsDeviceManager.IsFullScreen = true;

    Set everything to the correct format.




    Thanks once again.
