Browsers and C2 animations

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Dec 03, 2012 4:26 pm

Can anyone tell me how well most of the modern browsers cope with C2 creations embedded into web pages. Sorry, i am new to C2 so i'm just thinking about making an interactive animated shoot'em game with some fun graphics. It would be very basic, just something that would add novelty to the site. Maybe stuff whizzing around on rollover - think HTML5 animation only with more interaction. Would there be any issues with it playing on IE 6 - 9?
I was also thinking about how many companies might want a seasonal / promo game on their site - gamification i think they call it! Interested to know if anyone is doing this professionally.
Apologies - that's 2 questions right?

C2 Exports HTML5, so older browsers that don't display html 5 won't be able to display everything properly.

IE8 and older don't run HTML5 games. Practically every other browser today can though.

Thanks Justifun & Ashley.
I am hoping there might be a script that would detect non-HTML5 browsers and simply load an image instead of the C2 game.

If you're using WordPress on your site you can try the BrowserBlocker plugin to easily give a custom image/text splash screen depending on the browser they are using: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/browser-blocker/

Thanks Jayjay.
Sounds like a good solution - if using wordpress.
