Extend NW.js options

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Would it be possible to improve the NW.js capabilities?

I've been playing around with it and found that there are parts which are not easy to accomplish.

  1. .exe icon. - This can be changed using some external program to edit the .exe file after export. If this other program can edit it, why not C2 on export?

  2. Parameters. - There appears to be no way to use startup parameters with games exported via NW.js. This can be achieved by loading the index with the nw.exe file which is downloaded to run C2 files with NW.js in the first place by adding the runtime parameters as get values and then using the browser object to read these values. Is there no way that this too can be incorporated?
Nothing goes unanswered!

Would be nice indeed to have both, sure there are ways around those (as you said, the icon can be changed afterwards, and a configuration file can be used instead of parameters some might say), but still this request is valid and would actually make the exporter more complete than what it is currently.
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

You can find a program that can replace the icon of it here, it's called Resource hacker.
The moderators are corrupt and ban for no reason, especially that condescending neckbeard asshole Kyatric. The forums are filled with fanboys.

@Nesteris We know. But it's still a pain, done using ye olde software, for only Windows executables.
