BG:EE Android does not run while using ART runtime.

What it says on the tin. Using the ART runtime, BG throws an ANR on startup.

    ART is a new Android runtime being introduced experimentally in the 4.4 release. This is a preview of work in progress in KitKat that can be turned on in Settings > developer options. This is available for the purpose of obtaining early developer and partner feedback.

    Important: Dalvik must remain the default runtime or you risk breaking your Android implementations and third-party applications.
    It's experimental, so there is going to be problems. Given that it was only introduced in 4.4 and Beamdog is trying to make the game compatible with 4.0, the best option is to revert to Dalvik runtime.

    Oh, no doubt, it was a heads up, not a complaint. ART is going to be taking over from Dalvik at some point, and the majority of programs are not broken by it, so... yea.

    Thanks for the head's up; we should have a fix for that soon!
