Where is the qcar-resources.dat access?

November 26, 2010 - 8:15am #1

I'm trying to write an app that wont need to be rebuilt when the target images are updated, added or deleted.

If I could change where they're stored to a writeable directory and then read them from there then I could have an auto-update function that would write in a new qcar-resources file.

EDIT: If it's in compiled code is there a way to override it?

This feature is still a ways out, for now you will have to update your application in the Android Marketplace when you want to include new targets.

We don't have a public feature roadmap at this time. For now, please continue to make feature requests in the forums.

Hey,

Just looking at the first non-beta release and this feature hasn't yet appeared.

Is this something we can expect in the near future?

Also is there a feature request list/SDK feature roadmap maintained anywhere?

Best regards,

Lee

Hey,

I am also very interested in this feature, I see that qcar 0.10.0 was released after this posting.

Was it decided that this was not something that will be added?

My application at present expects this future behaviour in order to be useful long term(without the need for an app upgrade each time).

I think the main use case is the limited shelf life of some of the trackables, if someone releases an App, for instance Kellogg which provides some AR interaction with there current cereal boxes then as those changes in the week or month as a current marketing campaign finishes it would be far simpler for the application to download the updated qcar-resources.dat and config.xml than make the user upgrade the whole application.

Cheers,

Lee

Thanks for that.
I guess the end user could just update the app though the Android Market to get a new qcar-resources.dat.

This isn't possible with the current version of the sdk, but it is a feature we are talking about adding. Look for it later in the beta.
