Contruct 2 Repository

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Thu Feb 05, 2015 2:08 pm

I personally found it very hard to keep track of all the great Plugins, Behaviors and Effects that are available for contruct 2 so far, so i made a little tool to quickly check them out:

It previews the Plugin/Behavior/Effect and allows to download and install it with one click.

For plugins that are hosted on own webspace or paid plugins the program allows to visit the homepage of the author / website to buy the plugin. A forum link is also provided.

Currently i've only added a few samples in each category for testing purposes because i was wondering if anyone else is even interested in something like this.

Sounds like a useful thing as long as it's constantly updated and accessible.

Yes, it needs a lot of work to keep them to the latest version.

Well, once i have the "basics" in it's quite easy to update (replace a zip file on my server), the rest is done automatically.
Let's just say i have a bit of free time at work sometimes ;)

If you can make it happen and keep it updated I think it would be amazing.

OK i'll iron out some bugs (and add error handling :P) and then i'll upload a test build. Don't be amazed by the size (30mb)... it's because i use awesomenium for the realtime previews

YES YES YES YES.

This is a must. Currently, plugins addons and things like that on C2 are a complete and total mess.

We absolutely need this tool. I know a lot about UX and UI design, I can give you a big hand at making this tool useful for everyone @Ize - PM if you need help with this.

OK guys, i'll try to get a test build out in the next few days.

@notnsane yeah... the ui is not really pretty right now, it works and that's it... if you have a concept that would be better i could try to make something

@rexrainbow i know, it's worth it for your 100 million plugins and behaviors though ;)
