export for raspberry pi

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Oct 09, 2015 2:16 pm

Have been considering building a PI image to run as standalone construct 2 game console.

Idea would be to install on a base image of PI OS (TBD) the Chromium browser (for playing the games) and Nginx to act as webserver (configured for the various construct 2 Mime mappings).

The webserver would host a very simple application, which would show the names of the construct games which had been installed (e.g. exported as websites and copied to specific folder).

The PI would be set to boot with browser displayed at full screen, so you could select games.

If I started pulling this together would anyone else be interested in it (if so would put up on GITHUB).

Did anyone try HTML5 using the Google Coder project for Raspberry Pi?

I'd paste the link but my rep is not high enough. Simply google the phrase "google coder for raspberry pi".

In case you didn't see my blog post, you can get WebGL running on a Raspberry Pi 2, although it takes a bunch of hacks. It seems to work fine for Construct 2 games!

could you publish an image of your system configured to run webgl?

@fldr - why? the steps provided should cover it, and should help you stay up to date with future updates.

For non cpu intensive games, it should be fine to:
1. Host a local server on RPi with the Python module SimpleHTTPServer.
2. Put something in .bashrc to make chromium launch in kiosk mode on the locally hosted file.
3. Use the game! (You could even have a paddle that simulates keypresses :) )
Sorry about the username, old account XD
