Hi

I would like to view and also have the possibility to edit the game inside a Text Editor similar to Notepad? I take the language is HTML5 and javascript.

Is there way to this inside Construct??? Or a different way to do this?

By the way - was Construct developed with C++?

Regards

The generated code is usually obfuscated (minifer), so it is very difficult to edit it using Notepad.   The way to edit a game is have access to the original .capx and use the (c++ created) editor.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Editing code is not possible inside Construct 2 itself, however we have a great Javascript SDK:

With this you can write your own plugins and behaviors in Javascript which should be what your'e after!

And the reading of the blog article about C2's architecture which should help you getting the hang of how C2's working and what you can or can't do with the notepad and C2 projects.
