Include extra files?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Jan 03, 2012 5:05 am

Is there a way to include extra files with our exported project, now that we have a html iframe plugin I have some interesting things I like to do, but I need the files included with the exported version.

When I export html5 I can copy the files manually to the directory and it works great, but I have no way of doing that with a chrome export.

Basically I am using the iframe plugin to display my html docs and images locally.

How come you can't copy the files manually when doing a Chrome Web Store export? You still get a folder of files just like you do with the normal HTML5 export.

That's a good question.

I'd say it's not possible at the moment, @Ashley will be the one that can give more details about the chrome export side of things.
Edit: Oh yeah right Ninja'd, when does that British sleep ? ^^

On the other hand, why provide the html docs in download with the app ?
The iframe allow you to host/access it online. You could upload it on dropbox, and still access it from your application.
The only drawback I see is the downloading size. But the "On loaded" event of the iframe would allow you to make some timer/symbol that signals the user it's downloading.

Once you downloaded the doc, it stays in the user's cache. Only the first time/downloading of the manual would be an "issue".

And this would still work as intended in the chrome export I think.

Thanks, I did a no no and assumed pack app mean it was packed. But yes it's just raw files in a folder.

I can still see including files within Construct IDE an easy way to keep track of shared assets that gets pulled in to the export, but I know you guys are pretty busy.
