Black screen on loadscene android

We are using krpano in an android application which worked fine until we discovered a weird behavior on some android versions (6.0.1). The bug does not exist in version 7.0 nor 8.0.
The viewer works once in two calls :
  • We call loadscene the first time it works
  • Second call to loadscene we have a black screen (even for the same 360 image).
  • Third call works fine.
  • Fourth call gives a black screen.
And so on.

I do not have the problem with android versions 7.0 nor 8.0. Ios and desktop browsers work fine.

I am using the latest krpano version 1.19-pr16.

Thanks in advance for your help.

that's a core bug in Chrome 69 itself, your tested Android version are probably using webviews with that Chrome version.
Only single-res images larger than the maximum supported texture size (typically 4096x4096) are affected.

For the next krpano release I have already developed a workaround for it, but in newer Chrome versions (I think with Chrome 70 and newer) it is already fixed too.

Here a manual workaround for the moment - just add these lines anywhere in the xml:

Source code

<events name="androidchrome69largeimagebugworkaround" keep="true"
        if=" AND AND device.chromeversion == 69"
        onxmlcomplete="set(device.ios,true); if(global.backup_gyro_state === null, copy(global.backup_gyro_state,plugin[skin_gyro].enabled); set(plugin[skin_gyro].enabled,false); );"
        onloadcomplete="delayedcall(1, set(device.ios,false); if(global.backup_gyro_state, copy(plugin[skin_gyro].enabled,global.backup_gyro_state); delete(global.backup_gyro_state); ););"

Best regards,
