In the last blog post about creating Android Eclipse projects with Unity3d we introduced our Unity3d editor extension called AJUnity2Eclipse, which makes it possible to create an Android Eclipse project directly in Unity with one single click. During the nearly two weeks in the Unity Asset Store we collected some feedback and feature requests and there was one comment that was in particular quite interesting. One user suggested a feature to make it possible to create Android Live Wallpaper projects instead of a stand alone application project. We wondered if this is possible and did some testing on integrating the unity player into an Android Live Wallpaper Service. After facing some architectural problems and struggling with the event forwarding mechanism we in fact got it working!
Create Android Live Wallpapers with Unity3d and AJUnity2Eclipse
The latest version of AJUnity2Eclipse (available in the Unity Asset Store) provides an option to chose, wether you want to create a stand alone Android application or an Android Live Wallpaper! Please note that this is still an experimental feature that is roughly tested (with the Angry Bots demo that ships with Unity and some of our own projects) and currently only works with Unity3d version 3.4.
If you have any issues or suggestions, please send us feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org! Don’t forget to mention your exact Unity3d and Android SDK version, this helps us with bug fixing and to improve AJUnity2Eclipse!
We hope you enjoy the new feature and would like to see some cool 3d Live Wallpaper in the near future!
