Among many platforms, cocos2d-x let us develop for Blackberry Playbook.
Blackberry offers a simulator to ease development. Unfortunately my video card is rather old and my VM stops loading at the point shown in picture 1.
I’ve found an entry on Blackberry support site and many people were complaining about the same problem.
Blackberry staff told they would release a new version that would allow users with old video cards to run simulator and indeed they did it.
The new simulator will let you start it. The only thing you need to do is to enter on safe mode during simulator boot.
And how do you do enter on safe mode on Playbook simulator?
When you start simulator, you will see the message asking you to press ENTER in order to boot options. See picture 2.
Once you do that you be presented with menu where you can choose either a normal boot mode or safe boot mode. See picture 3.
Type 2 (safe mode) and press ENTER.
After that you probably will have your simulator up and running. See picture 4.
I don’t know why but sometimes simulator’s screen gets black and I need to power off / power on the virtual machine.
It’s not an ideal scenario but at least I’m able to develop.
By the way, I’m using VMWare player 3.1.5 build-491717 but it should work with a newer version.
