Quote from: Lufims on December 15, 2022, 10:16:08 AMI used apktool to decompile the castlevania sotn apk, and now I don't know what to do with that, someone know how to port the game to pc?
Quote from: akualung on December 16, 2022, 11:15:39 AMI know what I'm going to say is stupid, but the most sensible way is just installing an android emulator and run that game on it.
Quote from: KingMike on December 16, 2022, 09:50:53 AMYou port it with a lot of knowledge in a preferred programming language. Seriously.If it was something so simple, it would have been done long ago.
Quote from: Cyneprepou4uk on December 16, 2022, 01:41:03 PMSince you already have a source code, you can read it and write basically the same game with your programming language in some game engine. Or maybe you can open it in Visual Studio and adjust it to a PC version or something. I don't really know how it works exactly, but I would start with looking that up.
Quote from: Lufims on December 16, 2022, 12:41:32 PMMy pc doesn't even run youtube with the video in 720p, so I can't run an android emulator
Quote from: Lufims on December 16, 2022, 02:41:51 PMbecause java code is very slow in pc
Quote from: Jorpho on December 19, 2022, 01:25:20 AMYou say you "decompiled the APK", but that probably doesn't mean you have any kind of human-readable code that you can easily rewrite in a different language.
Quote from: KingMike on December 19, 2022, 04:02:36 AMdoes Java even produce binary files or are apps entirely run by interpreting the code?(my feeling is like, yes, there is a binary level

Quote from: Cyneprepou4uk on December 19, 2022, 04:56:26 AMI think it's possible to get the code, as it says herehttps://stackoverflow.com/questions/3593420/is-there-a-way-to-get-the-source-code-from-an-apk-file
Quoteit's not going to return the code you wrote. It is instead going to return whatever the compiler inlined, with variables given random names, as well as functions given random names. It could take significantly more time to try to decompile and restore it into the code you had, than it will be to start over.
Quote from: KingMike on December 19, 2022, 04:02:36 AMIs Java still used on modern smartphones?My understanding is that the extent of Java was like mid-2000s flip phones.I can't even remember since using Java in a programming class circa 2005, does Java even produce binary files or are apps entirely run by interpreting the code?(my feeling is like, yes, there is a binary level and that it kinda was the point of Java: to create cross-platform programs by means of emulating fictitious hardware)
