Issue with Android UI disappearing
« on: February 25, 2014, 05:42:16 AM »
I currently have an issue on Android where the UI occasionally disappears or gets stretched across the screen. This occurs while I am using the interface (e.g. I'm holding down one of the buttons and the whole UI disappears for a moment) It seems that the functionality remains even if the UI is stretched or not visible. In other cases, buttons have no text but then the text appears after I start interacting with them.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? And / or does anyone know a way to fix this issue?

Check these:

-UI camera must use Forward Rendering.
-Don't use multi-threaded rendering.
-Some devices (phones) have texture limits, check the size of your textures(atlases etc.) if it is not bigger than 2048x2048.

@CarlosMassiah: Multi-thread rendering is a bugged feature in Unity. Never use it. I also recommend filing a bug with Unity. Maybe they will fix it some day. Maybe.

It was indeed the Multi-thread rendering. Thanks for the responses folks.
