Arcade game compilation!

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Fri May 17, 2013 5:49 pm

I'm interested on releasing a minigame arcade style compilation with the retro vibe and all. I have some arcade games already to my disposition in .exe format made in Gamemaker. Is it possible to embed them inside layout screens or is it better to re-construct (no pun intended) inside construct classic?

appreciate any help, thanks in advance

Hi Kraed, you can call the EXE's from Construct using the File Object I believe http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/construct/index.php?title=File_Object.

Hope that helps!

thanks for the suggestion, i managed to work something very similar to what i want but not precise. i'm looking for a way to make a window open when one is closed and visa versa.

Hmm, so you're looking for a "main" screen that opens the other games and closes itself, then when a game close it opens back up?

I know it's possible in VB.NET, not sure about Construct Classic.
