Anyone used Electron or DecSoft to convert C2 games into exe

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hi guys I know most of you have had many problems with NW.js and are getting fustrated. I was wondering if anyone has used alternatives like this Electron
http://electron.atom.io/
or
Decsoft

I heard about these on Reddit and it seems developers are making a move towards them. I am not a windows developer, android is more my style. But if your looking for an alternative than these look pretty solid.

I haven't tried them, but they do sound interesting. The more options we have, the better imo.

@armaldio Will you release that plugin, or is it only for your own purposes?

Ok cool I mainly make android games but was thinking about desktop versions of my game too. If you can get it to work correctly, that would be awesome!!

@glerikud I will release it :)

@PixelPower It already work correctly. I'm working on the plugin to interact with it like Nwjs (write to files, clipboard access,...)
Let me know if you are interested.

@armaldio - I'm interested in that plugin too. What do you mean though, that you're making your own exporter? Does that mean you can preview in electron?

@Arima It's not really an exporter :

- I've made a precompiled version of electron, and i've all setup inside the way you just have to export to the right folder and it should work.
Since exporting each time is a bit boring, i've also setup "liverealod". That means that instead of, closing and reopening the executable each time to test your changes, you can let it running and it'll watch for any changes. If there are, onliy the view is reloaded, automatically.
With electron, you can also have plugins that uses node modules.

The next step is using the "custom preview browser" option of C2, i'm sure that will work.

Don't get me started with NWjs issues, I constantly hope for updates that fix bugs and don't add new ones.
Any bug that I experience mostly gets blamed on chromium/nwjs by Ashley and in return they are blaming it on the game engine, leaving me in an endless loop with nothing but frustration and literally no progress being made. (I end up with dropping the feature for 90% of those cases...)

I think for 2016, Electron beats NWjs in a lot of different factors but see and judge by yourself HERE.

Yeah Tom and Ashley now say if something is broken , ask the other people to fix it. Look here for another example

update-for-kongregate-plugin_t178688

I posted something like this in response to Ashley and Newt

Point blank to everyone we paid for certain things so we should receive them period. No one paid Kongregate to use C2. We paid Tom and Ashley so they should give us support.

Do you go into McDonalds and ask where is my order from Burger King? No, because that sounds stupid.
