I am currently developing a Breakout-Style-Game for a customer. This is my first project for the blackberry, but I already finished most of the work;
Our customer defines the following target devices: Storm 2 (9520) and Bold (9700) - both are using OS5; As it could be possible that we need to develop the game for other devices (not just blackberry) in the future, I have chosen to develop the game as a MIDlet (and i am using mostly the J2ME Library, except for a few specific things), where I used GameCanvas for all my Display-Screens.
On the Storm2 I have locked the Screen in Portrait-Mode, because Landscape-Mode would cut off the lower end of my Background Graphics (and my paddle is not visible then, etc).
The Blackberry-Bolds' Screen has the same Resolution as the Screen of the Storm2, but the Bolds'-Screen is Landscape instead of Portrait, so when I start the Bold-Simulator, my Graphics are cut off.
My Question is:
Is it possible to rotate the whole MIDlet (or the whole Graphical content of it), so that it will display in landscape mode on the Bold? (like the Storm2 does automatically when i tilt the device and not restricting the rotation)
The User will then have to play the game with a tilted bold-device (keyboard on the right, screen on the left).
Thanks for your time,
