C2 manual for eReaders (ePub & Mobi)

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Jan 10, 2012 10:53 pm

Hi, I bought a Kindle a week ago and I tought it would be great to have C2 manual in it, so I started to convert it.

I've made it in ePub format and then converted to Mobi with Calibre.

It has the same formatting as in webpage (hyperlinks, font style...) and a full Table of Contents plus some tutorials and some useful official's blog entries.

How did you even download the manual in the first place? I get a 'coming soon' message when I click free download. I'm going to try to convert your epub version to pdf.

EDIT : The conversion was bad. No links, no ToC... any chance to make a pdf version? :)Cpryd0012012-01-10 23:44:49

I didn't download it. I just copy plain text of each page to the ePub and added formatting tags and links one by one.

I don't know how to convert it to PDF with hyperlinks and TOC, but there is a PDF version in this post:

In case you want to read the manual on PC there is some ePub readers, like Adobe Digital Editions and plugins for Firefox like EPUBReader.

That's great, thank you. I didn't notice your links in the last post to the PC readers, so I looked up one myself - link
Take it as an alternative to the Adobe DE, because I think Adobe's reader looks better.

Thanks for this! I was thinking of doing something like this myself after I did the pdf version, now I don't have too! Great job. :)

Thanks for creating and sharing the manual!

An e-book reader that I highly recommend is Calibre - it's free, open-source, and can convert ePub to a large number of other file types (although the PDF conversion is not spectacular, otherwise I would have posted a conversion as well). stemkoski2012-01-15 20:31:20

Thanks for this! I really hope this trend continues, as eBooks are widespread enough to warrant a version of the manual.
