Android platforms 32 bit and 64 bit are supported for Gorilla3D, but due to IDE/NDK restrictions different OpenGL versions are used:

  • Delphi 10.1 - 10.2 - shaders are compiled for OpenGL ES 2.0
  • Delphi 10.3+ - since Android changed its publishing conditions to a minimum API level 28, we are allowed to use OpenGL ES 3.0+

Remarks: Due to OpenGL ES 2.0 on Delphi 10.1 - 10.2 it is not possible to use the complete render pass spectrum. Especially render passes with multiple render targets are not possible!


For Delphi 10.3 and since v0.8.1 and implementation of order-independent transparency rendering the minimum NDK API level 21 is needed!

For Delphi 10.1 - 10.2 an elder NDK version is installed and no API level 21 is available. Therefore packages are still compiled with transparency sorting and OpenGL ES 2.0 usage.


Due to major changes in API restrictions, we decided to handle Android compilations of IDE versions older than 10.3.3 as deprecated!
