Misc Suggestions

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Apr 26, 2012 2:39 am

Hi sorry for making my first thread a 'suggestion/feature request' thread but ... anyway:

Open last project at startup:
Same as Visual Studio and other IDEs.

Visible Grid:
While the editor has a snap to grid option it would be very useful to see the actual grid.

Run Command
The ability of executing external applications.

Clipped Tiled Background:
Same as Tiled Background but instead of seeing the entire background in the screen you only see the scroll in a given clip/rect.

Primitive/Canvas Drawing plugin
Same as the canvas plugin but official or at least a plugin to draw primitives over the game canvas.

Awesome work guys!
Sorry for my english

EDIT: BTW what is Object Grouping? I saw it listed on the store website but i havent founded the feature in the IDE.Fersis2012-04-26 02:45:16

Please explain this further. Do you mean an actual "run an external program" action? If so, forget it, it will never happen (due to security concerns), except if an exe exporter gets made.Fimbul2012-04-26 04:04:46

I was planning to create a plugin to allow the execution of external programs.
If you use a Flash/AIR or Java applet stub, you can access local filesystem and execute local binaries. You still need to ask user' permission, but in some scenario that can be useful...

Nope. I dont meant the actual app running an external tool i meant the Construct 2 launching an external tool. But yeah is not a make or breake feature.
