I'm trying to use a backgroundImage property on several buttons and views, and have each as a set of density specific images (/Resources/android/images/res-*dpi/image.png) as well as a default /Resouces/images/image.png. In SDK 1.7.5 this works fine but if I use any version higher that this the density images are ignored and the default is always used.
var win = Titanium.UI.createWindow({
	backgroundColor: '#604040',
	layout: 'vertical'

var image = Ti.UI.createImageView({
	image: '/images/test.png',
	top: '20dp',
	width: '108dp',
	height: '84dp'

var button = Ti.UI.createButton({
	backgroundImage: '/images/test.png',
	top: '20dp',
	width: '108dp',
	height: '84dp'

var view = Ti.UI.createView({
	backgroundImage: '/images/test.png',
	top: '20dp',
	width: '108dp',
	height: '84dp'


Running the attached project (above) on 1.7.5 shows me the same 3 *DPI images as expected, but anything above that shows the top image properly (it uses an image property), and the bottom 2 show the 'default' image (these use backgroundImage). I don't think I'm doing anything special, and I've tried every combination of OS, Javascript runtime, Android SDK, Ti SDK, emulator size, fastdev etc I can think of. The earliest CI build I've tried is 1.7.6.v2011120913042, also and many 1.8/1.9 CI builds up to 1.9.0.v20111214004742.

    Paul Thank you for raising this ticket, particularly as it is so well-formed. When using platform-specific folders, I don't think the /images/ folder is necessary, and removing it will resolve the issue (it does in my tests). Search for the term "default folder" in [Using density-specific resources on Android](https://wiki.appcelerator.org/display/guides/Using+density-specific+resources+on+Android). I will close this for now. Please reopen the ticket if this does not resolve it for you. If you do, please state the exact screens that you have tested. Cheers
