.EXE Maker object would be AMAZING (anyone?) - Scirra Forums

.EXE Maker object would be AMAZING (anyone?)

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Mon Jan 04, 2010 5:52 pm

I would love to see...I would droooooooooool over the capability to create an executable

with a few well placed objects and events...well you know and some structured coding.

Is this already a feature of Construct that I'm not knowledgable of how to do it?

Just for example if I make a program that allows the user to make eBooks from html files and output them into a stand alone .exe... :?:

Is this too general of a question? Im just wanting to be able to make a program that can make a program... an example of this is Construct itself...it allows you (the user) to create an .exe as a product. I want to make a program for the user to be able to make his\her own program.

We'll leave this one open, since Construct can't do this it's more of a feature request than general discussion or help.

Not sure I understand ... isnt this the feature request forum. Leave it open? What are you saying? You have to know Im a retard and need clarity.

I figure Construct cant do it and would request they incorporate something along these lines but I realize this kind of gets away from the gaming aspect of the app but to be honest I see construct aas waaaaaaay more powerful an app for creating apps then for silly game-play. Like giving all your children firearms and all they want to do with them is shoot cans off a fence for fun.

Nothing wrong with having fun but the power of a speeding bullet has far more potential than game-play...you can win wars with it...if you follow my lame metaphor or analogy or whatever.

You're the first to ask for this feature. Is it really that useful or important? I don't think it's realistic. How would you define how a separate EXE works, using events? That's going to be a very complicated system and will need to be thought out comprehensively, which would probably result in at least a 10 page spec, which we would never have time to work on...

You had three duplicate threads on this topic, or had you forgotten already?. One in Discussion, one in Help/Tech, and one here in Feature Requests.

This is a Feature Request, so this is the only thread you need. Your other two threads were locked.

Anyway, since Construct is a game maker, and not an app-making-app-maker, I really doubt your request will be filled.

This feature would be great to have.
Even though it is not an app-making-app-maker I would love to have this feature really.

He wanted it to be possible to make an exe from an exe made from construct.

I would imagine for things like making a program/game in construct, which could then make other games or programs.

Yes this would be heaven to be able to create something that creates something.

Construct itself is such divinity and I believe that this capability---once truely given

some thought---would open a door to great creative exploration. Think about it.

What program would you have your program be capable of making?

Perhaps a program that can itself make programs? lol

A game that can itself spawn game-lets that allows the player to expand your game.

Give me the ability to give someone else an ability. All power to the user...hurrah!

ME9876543: Your app could just have a button that downloads the latest version of Construct. Then they can make an exe with Construct.

Mipey: I think he wants to make an exe from an exe made from construct. (edit...oops didnt see that your questions was already answered)
