Newbie: Does Construct 2 use flash/Javascript?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Oct 14, 2013 4:06 pm

Hi everyone, i am new to Construct and my goal is to make a few simple games to add to my membership smartphone app.

I want my membership app to have an arcade linking to various simple fun games.

Games like fruit ninja, maybe a simple platformer etc.

My question is the app service I use allows html5 but does construct solely use html5 or does it also implement java, javascript, flash etc.

If so that makes adding them a little dicey.

Thanks for your patience and help.

Well I suggest a little more reading on the subjects.

But to answer your question. C2 exports a JavaScript program which uses a browsers canvas and other browser api. There is no Flash.

Any HTMl elements are only a visual wrapper for the browser.

C2 doesn't really use CSS as part of it's game design.

CSS is only used when using the few DOM elements like Font, Text, Button. However as a good rule of design for true cross platform.

* Times when you would use DOM. Editors, information, prototypes.
* When not to use DOM. Any commercial release of a game or App.

However, except for the DOM parts. C2 doesn't use HTML5 except to have a Canvas and even then Wrappers don't use it all. So no. C2 is really primarily just a JS game engine with a HTML5(only) wrapper page for a browser.

Just as an information.

Wow, that was like a foreign language. I appreciate the feed back. Coming into this great program is a little overwhelming. I wanted to find out specifically flash because of the Iphone ban on it.

I know my questions are very basic, but I am coming in with no prior knowledge and kind of groping around in the dark. I wish there were more tutorials. I thought the first one was great but then it left you off with no instruction on adding sounds etc.

So I kind of need to ask stupid questions to crawl, walk, run.

Thanks

@Dan Blast

I don't understand the 'wish there were more tutorials' reference. There are 39 pages of categorized tutorials in the Tutorials section at the top of the page.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
