Build and publish an HTML5 game for ipad

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Dec 10, 2011 4:59 pm

I came across this on the internet-

Build and publish an HTML5 game for ipad (3 part tutorial)

The project was not done with Construct, but the section about getting the sound to work might be of interest.

I think 'Pode' posted something similar 11/12/2011.

Very interesting article!

I'm really annoyed by the audio situation on HTML5.
It really keeps me away of seeing it as a real possibility for games.

maybe I'm wrong, but since i'm not a programmer, my skills are limited (that's why I use Construct2).

Hopefully, it will change in the future...

I think this method with sound sprites on iOS is already discussed here:

I tried it on my iPhone and it works fine but I'm repeating here that there is still a problem with sounds on iOS in offline mode because there are no caching audio on iOS!ssusnic2011-12-10 17:56:45

The sound on HTML5 games made with Construct works fine...It's when using Phonegap that the problem arises.

   Yes, thats the one i mention in the post (i didnt have the link)

Do the sounds play on IOS when online?

Any chance you could post an example capx showing how you got it to work? I am still struggling to get my head round it.

Audio is always the the most overlooked feature on any device. Give it some time and it will be better.

Well... all the games made with C2, that I tried, online, not with phonegap, have sounds problems on my computer (with Chrome)
So... it's not just phonegap...

Something I saw : when you play a mp3 with the ipod widget in background, you can play sound SFX on top of that when using an audio sprite. So, for the when, if you want background music, you need to provide audio on a different link, let the player add it to his library, start it, and play the game...
There's also a plugin for Phonegap that allows to use native calls to load and play audio (transparently). I need to find back the URL for that plugin...
