*MAJOR NEWS* Intel this June ending support for making .apks

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Mar 25, 2017 5:37 pm

Intel is ending its build server this June. That's absolutley ridiculous. Basically whats used to take files from Construct 2 and make them into android apps, apple apps, and windows apps is being ended >< Why, idk.

Which leaves us Construct 2 mobile devs with using another program if there is one, writing dos commands, or using Phone Gap which is $10 a month if you have an app that is more than 50mb or if you have more than 1 app that you want to use Phone Gap to build it with in terms of converting it for a mobile store.

You can install Git, node.js, Java, Cordova and the Android SDK to build locally without having to upload anywhere:

Git, node.js, Java, Cordova and the Android SDK though involves writing dos commands. All of the alternatives, except for Phone Gap, involve writing Dos commands, dont they?

Also having to write Dos commands means its going to take considerably longer publish apps for testing and uploading.

You make a .cmd file that you launch each time you wanna generate an apk:

All the hassle is gone. I don't need to count on any online build service.

This works with Crosswalk too? Where can we read more about how to do this?

if the build server is gone, I wonder if we need to do anything ahead of time to be sure we can build our apps elsewhere, such as getting the signing certs?
