How do I get wifi preview working?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Thu Apr 30, 2015 2:08 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm new to Construct 2 and I'm just trying to get the wifi preview working...

I've set up the firewall and run Construct as admin. The app loads up at the correct ip address on my PC - 10.0.1.2:50000

When I try to look at it on my iPhone, or Mac, I just get a "server stopped responding" message. Does anyone have any ideas what I could do to fix it?


Thanks!

You say you're new but have you got a license?

It says here https://www.scirra.com/store/construct-2 that preview over wi-fi is not in the free edition, so maybe that?
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

As zenox98 beat me to it - This feature isn't available in free version.
But if you have steam license, check your firewall

Hi, I've got a license for Construct. It definitely works on the PC I'm working on. It's just that all the other things on the network can't load it up...

Just for future reference in case anyone else has this problem, I fixed this by changing the "find PCs, devices and content on this network" setting in the the wifi network settings. Apparently this is how you change a network from public to private in Windows 8.
