mobile mod - app crash causes phone apps to crash


Be able to select any event I want and not have the application crash on the phone.

I'm not 100% on what caused this, but I believe it to be that I selected the "Face Detector" event, it never finished loading and now the application on the Android and Windows phones has crashed and won't reconnect (though they continue to try). I'm going to have to force close Mayhem, it looks like, and I expect that to resolve the issue...

ERROR MESSAGE (displayed only on Android):

The app Mayhem (process com.Microsoft.Mayhem) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

JAY - this seems to be an error possibly more related to Mayhem itself than the phones/applications, which you said not to worry about...but I wasn't 100% about which category this would fall under (development or performance) since the app shouldn't crash, so I put it here just to be safe. Let me know if you would like me to continue or disregard these types of problems.

wait...should I only be testing with the "Phone Remote" event, anyway?

question has been answered, I apologize! didn't want to overlook anything =)

The FaceDetector part of this is a separate problem, but causing the phone apps to crash is a problem.

This does not appear to be fixed in v317

Does app crash still cause phone apps to crash? I have never been able to repro this. The phone apps (except for Android which is hopefully fixed now) have never crashed for me.

This does not appear to be fixed in v462. When I select an event that isn't ready and freezes/causes Mayhem itself to crash (just did this test using the System Tray Menu event), the phone apps disconnect and display a connection error.

Ah ok. That's expected. A crash in Mayhem will bring the server down and the phone apps will disconnect and try to reconnect. As long as the phone apps don't crash, this is fixed.

Then fixed it shall be =)
