Disable display turning

edited February 2014 in Android Mode

Hi, I made a game for android using processing. When someone accidently tuns the display the game will reset (hours of gaming have been lost :/ ). I found ways how to disable display rotation of your phone. But is there a way to prevent it from processing directly or a way to only turn it off when processing is running?

    Or, if you want to use landscape orientation, change portrait to landscape.

  • Exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much! :D
