Some tutorials not running correctly on Android
I have been playing around more with seeing how Esenthel works on a tablet. As part of that I have been playing with some of the tutorials. A lot of them work very well but some don't seem to. For instance,

11 - Laser and Electricity
It shows the laser and the electricity but the background brick does not show up.

22 - Lights and Particles
The floor shows up but no fire or light

i am wondering if I am doing anything wrong or if it is a known issue or an issue with my drivers. I am running an up to date Nexus 7 and my android ndk is

F:\Android\android-ndk-r8c

Hi,

The default renderer for mobiles is RT_SIMPLE which does not support point lights used in the tutorials.

Possibly that's what's causing the issue smile

I have some issue. I changed in Video options Renderer to Simple, no result. I tried in InitPre add Renderer.type(RT_SIMPLE), no result. Give me solution please.

P.S. I`m try Laser and Electricity example. Mobile HTC Sensation XE, Android 4.0.3

Hi, the RT_SIMPLE renderer does not support point lights.
You could try using RT_FORWARD, but that one is slow.
