Hi,

Leaning towards an Android version of our word game "LettersFall".
Only issue is loading the 5MB English dictionary file?
Can someone suggest a viable method to do the above which would work on Android?
Let us know, thanks...

Pehaps in a 2 D array

words [ 26, 1000]

words [ 1. 1-1000] - all words starting with A
words [ 2. 1-1000] - all words starting with B
words [ 3. 1-1000] - all words starting with C
words [ 4. 1-1000] - all words starting with D
words [ 5. 1-1000] - all words starting with E

just so that it becomes faster when doing a search during the game

my thoughts anyway

Hi,

Thanks for the reply...
Are there any size limitations for a single "agc" file?
The entire dictionary is about 5MB.
Target platform is Android (we have an HTML5 version already: www.LettersFall.com)
Thanks!

from what ive seen, I think google play allows 100mb per game or is it 50mb , unsure. but yes - other guys might be able to confirm this though

The agc file doesnt go with the APK file, its the bytecode and media contents

You will be fine with a 5MB file.

I would encrypt a text document though
