so far, it seems nobody is happy with Pro2. I for one continue to use Pro1 which works ok, and I'm reluctant to even install pro2 for 2 reasons:
1: I thought from the beginning that this protection scheme was needlessly complex, and reading other users, it seems flawed
2: I'm a little bit worried installing this foreign apk, given that Google banned it from the play store before. I asked twice the reason of this ban but had no reply
I wish you'd just trash this pro2 system, which doesn't have any added value other than bothering people, and go back using Play store like before. Else, I'll just use Pro1 until it won't work anymore, then go back using Sikulix on my Emu.
Please, pretty please, resolve the ban issue with the play store, you'll then be able to add new functions to Ankulua instead of trying to fix this Pro2 protection scheme
P.S. and I'd still like to hear why Play store banned Pro1
First, only very limited people said there is license check problem. And some is not license check, but killed by Android because out of memory.
Second, here is the information from Google about banning AnkuLua Pro.
And taking screenshot of games is "access in an unauthorized manner ... other apps on the device." From day one, we assume that google may ban AnkuLua one day. It's hard to argue with Google on it. And we are afraid that the trial version will be banned too if arguing with Google.
Third, please keep using AnkuLua Pro if you still own.
Finally, we are willing to help users if any problem.
PS: Hope this answers your question. Thanks for your support.
Don't get me wrong, I still think Ankulua is a great app, the best for game automation, that's why I'm using it. Pro1 is able to run for days without quitting (the game generally crash before Ankulua), I just think that getting out of Play store is a bad thing.
As I understand it, it is just a matter of time before the trial version gets banned too, when that happens, you won't have any exposure anymore.
While I'm pretty sure you're right when you say it's hard to argue with Google, I'm surprised of the reason: just searching for "screen recorder" on Google Play returns a heap of results. Also, there are at least 2 other game automation apps still in the Play store, and while they are far less powerful than Ankulua, they are not banned (yet), but they just pick colors on screen, could that be the reason?
Anyway, I hope you'll come to a satisfying solution, until then, I'll stick to Pro1 which works great, but I'm aware that I won't have any update on it anymore.
I feel now that Ankulua Pro2 killed & restarted by OS is also related to network. When network is poor (e.g., using VPN), Pro2 has higher chance to be killed. I highly suspect software bug; otherwise why OS tries to kill Ankulua first? Why the game is not killed, which uses much much more RAM.
As I said before: 1) One time license check fail should NOT auto stop Pro2, you can pause/idle it until next licesence check. 2) If been killed & restarted by OS, please re-run the script automatically from beginning.
I don't think the above two items are difficult, but the developer is just too lazy!
