Hi. As part of my project to implement rankings I need to understand how CC works on Android so those players can also be included. Specifically, I know that there are numerous device resolutions that Android supports - my question is does anyone know what resolutions CC actually supports on Android? The Google Play page for the app doesn't say:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.funzio.crimecity

PS The reason I ask is that my rankings project will scan an image of your CC Stats Profile to extract the stats, but I have an automated cropping process as part of the workflow. On iOS this exercise is easier since all devices only run at 2 resolutions. Not so on Android :(

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Couldn't you assume the aspect ratio is the same and calculate the cropping based on percentages? Would alleviate the problem of iPhone vs iPad resolutions, too.

My camper account is on a HTC Rezound with a resolution of *1280 x 720

I'm not sure how/if that would work any better as I still need to know the aspect ratio of each device in case it varies?

I don't belive the aspect ratios are the same across all mobile devices - are they? iPhone comes out as 2:3 and iPad as 4:3?! I need to crop only the area that contains that stats info...I've determined the X/Y offset for the iOS retina 960x460 display by trail and error and I could use as the basis for calculating the offset for other resolutions - but I still need the resolutions, I think?

Just leave them out because they are left out of everything else and won't mind,

Hah hah yeah if only...I'm not that cruel...being a Mac Guy you learn to laugh first at Windoze and Android and then have sympathy for their plight :p

Anyyway, I think I've got it figured...I've found a grid on the interwebs with the resolutions at various dpi density and screen sizes.

Not sure how you're doing it, but there should be native calls in whatever OS/language/script you're using to return some of the basic properties of the image.
