C2 and Cocoonjs short comings

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Jan 06, 2013 10:58 pm

Hi

My latest c2 effort (HIGGS ... Demo in the arcade) uses data structures held in XML and retrieved via the ajax object.

Been a disaster using cocoonjs as I use XML, local storage, web fonts etc. Are there any fixes/work around for these. I notice cocoonjs has httpxmlrequest, local storage listed in Api. Real pain where c2 plugins are not compatible/noted as notworking with cocoonjs.

?

The limitations with CocoonJS are documented here. The best thing to do is design your project from the start avoiding features not supported by the target platform, e.g. using Dictionary or Array instead of XML since they are supported.

Sure. I guess I latched on to the performance improvement advice :-)

Is there a quick way of injecting dictionary key additions in to an event sheet - or some other trick? I can convert the XML to 5 or so dictionaries. There are 118 x 5 entries to worry about

@Rushino - try Crosswalk for Android instead. It supports all the above.
