How to install plugins and behaviors

Post your completed addons to share with the community

Edit: this is now covered by the manual entry on installing third-party addons.

New addons
Newer plugins and behaviors support .c2addon packages. If the plugin developer distributes a .c2addon file, simply download it then drag and drop the file in to the Construct 2 window. Construct 2 will ask you if you want to install it. (This is only supported in r120+, so check your Construct 2 version if it does not work.)

Old addons
Older addons are usually just a collection of files. You need to close Construct 2 and copy the folders to the install directory - one of the following depending on whether it's a plugin or behavior:

<install path>\exporters\html5\plugins
or
<install path>\exporters\html5\behaviors

In these folders each plugin and behavior has its own folder with a couple of files in it. Copy the plugin or behavior you've downloaded there, launch C2 again, and you should see it in the editor!

Effects are slightly different: they're just a .fx and .xml file. These go in the effects subfolder in the install directory.Ashley2013-04-04 19:34:28

@Ashley, this goes great with Kyatric's C2 Plugins and Behaviors List.

If one upgrades, the recommended approach is to uninstinal then reinstall.

Is there a way to do this without having to find and re-copy the plugins?

E.g. can one set the plugin directory in a registry setting, then have the plugin dir in another location (not in program files)?

@tringio
.csx plugins are for Construct Classic and are incompatible with Construct 2.

Thanks for the info. Made me actually look at some of the code behind the standard behaviors and plugins in JavaScript. :)
