You know that college kid who says he wants to make video? He draws up half a design document and tells everyone he knows he's a game designer and all he needs is a team of people and he'll be rich and famous in no time. I'm not that guy. I have a passion for not just experiencing video games but also creating them. I still look like that kid: in school, not making money yet from my games, occasionally slacking, and maybe a bit TOO enthusiastic, but I'm absolutely dedicated.

I am only spawning one bullet at a time and it is not overlapping anything. Also, I am aware of Libgdx and have chosen not to use it. Thank you for your suggestions.

I have posted this on the Java box2d forums as well. I will update my question if someone is able to help me there.

@NicFoster Box2d was made to use polygons. And besides, I am creating only one new shape this way (using vertices) and it is still a square. I highly doubt that simulating one square made out of vertices is making Box2d so slow as to be unresponsive. Thank you for your response, but that can not possibly be the problem here.

I did as @Jiddo suggested and got almost identical profiling results. I have not altered maxPolygonVertices. All my bodies right now have 4 vertices and are between 0.5 and 2 meters.

It seems to be hanging inside of box2d. Various methods inside of world.step() especially while solving time of impact.

There are no errors. The application just "hangs" until android offers to force close it. The stack trace is written to a file on my phone that I can't access without root access. I did, however, narrow down the problem to my create() method.

comment How do I draw a scrolling background?
Is 2400X480 larger than your scree? Because if so, you only need to draw it once at a time. If the player can't view it there is no since drawing it.

How about adding a screenshot? Your problem is extremely vague. You have to be as specific as possible to get good help from this site. Were you drawing your background as one large image or as a set of tiles? I assumed a large image because backgrounds are not normally constructed from tiles. The level structure usually is but not the background.

What do you mean no solution? What is still going wrong? Perhaps 200 is far too much to multiply by. I was thinking a number between 0 and 1 might be right.
