Android Question

Cocos2dx build issue

I have latest version of Cocos2dx which is v3.12 and latest ndk r12b on Mac OSx El Captain.
I tried countless times to build my project for the android platform and I'm keep on gettting a "realocation overflow in R_ARM_THM_CALL" error.
And the libraries don't end up linking.
How do I fix this error? Do I need maybe a previous version of cocos2dx or ndk?

Please Help.

Here is the whole error message:

Answer

Try NDK r11c:

http://dl.google.com/android/repository/android-ndk-r11c-darwin-x86_64.zip

Also make sure you have the following line in your Android.mk:

LOCAL_ARM_MODE := arm

That worked for me (and I also had the same errors with NDK r12b). Hope this helps!
