Corona - Feature Requests/Feedback

Welcome to the Corona SDK feature request/feedback tool.

Tell us what features you would like to see in Corona by entering new ones and/or voting on existing entries.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • You only have 15 votes. Use them wisely! You only regain votes if we delete or close an item.
  • Write short descriptions/comments to give us context on what you need and mean.
  • This tool is not for asking questions or long discussions. Use our forum instead.

What features should we add to Corona?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Update firebase sdk and gps to 11 on android

    In order to take advantage of the new firebase features like phone login and performance logging on android, firebase needs to be updated to 11.

    Google play services would also need to be updated 11 as well.

    • Support logging in app purchases in Flurry

      In order to get revenue data into Flurry, one needs to use the logPurchase() method instead of the logEvent() method. Currently Corona only supports the logEvent() method.

      • Add desktop base directories

        It would be really helpful if we had access to other directories for quick access to assets located outside our container on desktop apps.

        For example, i am developing an editor, in which users can choose their own images to texture their levels. However, currently there is no easy way to load any image into Corona outside of our project.

        The proposed solution:
        Add a system.RootDirectory or system.AbsoluteDirectory constant to be able to load images/assets from any place, using the absolute path.

        As an additional feature, folders like the user folder, global temporary folder and many others could be added…

        • Trimmed Images from tools like TexturePacker should be "untrimmed" when loaded in Corona

          Currently, when you create a trimmed image sheet in TexturePacker, Corona takes the sourceWidth and height and positions the image within those dimensions.

          Corona should also scale the trimmed image within those dimensions so that you can supply an arbitrary width and height to display.newImageRect() and get a proportional image.

          You can dig into the SheetInfo table to get the frame's trimmed width and height, and scale that manually to create a proportional image relative to the new width and height that you want. But Corona should do this automatically behind the scenes if it detects that an image has…

            • Manipulate text size, style, font, and color like HTML

              Allow the embedding of html (or something similar/easier) to manipulate text including: size, style, font, and color.

              Specifically, color would be nice. Example:

              display.newText("You have chosen <font color=(1,0,0)>red</font>.")

              • a rewrite for webView module

                Current webView has many bugs & limitations, for example:

                (1) It's always on top. The app cannot detect user swipes when webView is there. The app cannot show some menu on top of the webView.

                (2) The loading event for iOS is sometimes missing.

                (3) There is no 100% way to tell what the current URL is.

                (4) The webView gives blank screen for some links.

                (5) The webView does not load pages fast enough comparing to Safari/Chrome.

                (6) The webView cannot show loading progress indicator because there is no way to know the progress

                (7) The webView cannot share…

                • Tag Support for timers (same method as Transitions)

                  Transitions 2.0 allows for control by tag groups. Allowing timers to also support tags would make them much easier to control as scenes are entered and exited.

                  • [PLUGIN] Official support of Tile Maps ( TMX )

                    As a game engine, some common game types / layouts should be supported, in form of Startup Template. Currently we can only rely on 3rd party tile engine. Implementing Tile Map game is still a pain.
