In short my main goal is to go commercial. I would like to know if c2 has the following abilities:

-Able to make an *.exe file

-Database (or something to allow file saves and store data for characters/items rpg or adventure style)

-allow code to be added (mainly for ads) or a way to monetize the game/application.

Thankyou for your advice and or information you can help me with in advance

:)

@ Yudraciell

Hello Yudraciell,

As of r100 (The next C2 update), the ability to export to *.exe should be added. This will be released in a few days time.

Within the game you are able to use a variety of objects such as arrays, webstorage, Dictionary etc... To store relevant data for your game. If this is not enough, you are able to communicate with a database via a PhP webpage, but this requires you writing your own PhP page. Alternatively information can be stored in XML format, where by you can send call backs to retrieve the information you want. But again this requires you to write your own XML tables.

Concerning monetising your game/application. There are a variety of ways to do this now, either with thrid party portal sites such as Kongregate. Your own site. Or with the upcoming exporters. If you are able to code in Javascript, you can create your own objects to allow for the input of your own coding snippets.

I am interested in which advertiser will allow you to paste code directly into an HTML5 application/game. I understand it is common with Flash games, but at the moment I understood most advertiser would prefer adverts to either be infront of the HTML5 application (Such as with Kongregate), or besides its (Such as with adsense).

Hope that helps at least a little,

-Adam
