[quote="karolis":sxksor91]I prefer zip file download, atleast for now while its not yet released.[/quote:sxksor91]

I also really prefer the zip. If it can be installed and run anywhere (i.e., doesn't make any changes to the registry or deposit files in unusual places) then what does an installer do anyway?

It makes it simpler for some users. If you don't know whether you're on 32-bit or 64-bit Windows, or you're not aware of the fact there's a difference, the installer picks the right one for you. It also picks a good place to install the app if you're not an admin, so if you don't know where to put the files it chooses for you, and creates shortcuts for you. That might sound a bit patronising, but not all users are tech-savvy enough to know good answers to those questions. Remember Construct 2 is aimed at "beginner" users. Given it's alpha, we're only likely to attract tech-savvy early adopters at the moment, though.

Either way with zip or installer it's only a few clicks to have it ready. Is it that big a problem? It's still a portable application, so if you like, you can install, zip up the folder you installed it to, and take it where you like. (But I still think it would be better to take the setup with you, since it works out 32/64-bitness and whether admin privileges are available.)

You might've missed my post in r38.2 thread and in this version it's still missing (or it's not important?).
>Could you add to 'Preview browser' setting option "browse", or something like that. I use Chrome portable and C2 can't find it. Would be good to have an option to browse and set the path to it.<

@Noga, I'll see what I can do, launching specific browsers can actually be a little tricky.

Alternatively, supply the preview URL that can be copy&pasted into browser of choice.

So scroll down to the bottom of the actions... I've set up a simpler example that isn't hidden in all of those events. When the minimap up in the top right is clicked, it should be destroyed. But it is not. Any ideas?

Ah... I think it's because it's on a layer with 0 parallax! I'll see if I can fix it for the next build.
