Nope. Just use Photon.
You could have atleast made a new thread.

But that's not practical. I have seen many mobile apps do that portably and built-in the app. What am I missing here?
Is it a browser related problem or a browser missing feature?


It isn't the approach Scirra decided to support with their multiplayer plugin. It might be able to work as a third party plugin, but I am not aware of one made for this.
Mistakes were made.

Too bad.

@Ashley is it possible to request this feature for Construct 3?

Ashley suggested using c2 multiplayer and I assumed (incorrectly) that was what you were enquiring about. No thread hijack intended.

You can run the signalling server permanently on an offline LAN network, which means you only need to set it up once. But setting it up involves running a node.js server on a machine with the correct network configuration, e.g. setting up the firewall to allow server hosting, then identifying the machine's local IP address, and then using that address to connect to the signalling server with the Multiplayer plugin.

It's definitely possible, but I'd guess most players probably can't be bothered to do all that configuration just to play a game. By far the easiest thing to do is just go online and use the Scirra signalling server.
