How do I test app on tablet over wifi?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue Jul 28, 2015 11:21 pm

Is there a way to connect to the address and port of the test run on my computer with a tablet or smart phone?

Rather than going through the process of using an SDK to export to android, I would love to connect over wifi, and I think I can but i'm not sure how.

Any ideas?

Construct 2 preview mode runs as a webserver, so this should be working.

On your main PC:
1. Touch Win+R
2. Enter "ipconfig"
3. Find the IP-adress for you NIC (network interface card)

On you tablet:
1. Open your browser
2. Enter the IP adress and port 50000 in the address field (ie. 192.168.2.1:50000).

I guess Construct 2 need to be run as an administrator (right click Construct 2 icon and select "run as administrator") for it to work.
