NW.JS - How will it work?

Post » Mon May 15, 2017 5:22 pm

I really like the way exports work, very nice to use.

I tried it out on the line of sight example which is about 600kb, took about 3 minutes to export to mac64 and ended up 181mb :shock:

Yeah its very big but it's quite straight forward in the ease of use department.
Androids APK limit is 100mb.
I'm assuming that the Android/iOS publishing will cover this (make it easy to do)
But you can have 2 additional expansion/data files of 2GB each though. https://developer.android.com/google/pl ... files.html

iOS Limiti also 100MB ("Over the air") but can also have additional data with 4GB and can then have addons etc that goes over that.

I've never exported to mobile but i expect the final file size of those will be a lot less then with nw.js (which is bundling the browser) so perhaps 100mb will be enough for those.

@Havok
You don't need to worry about Android and iOS versions. Since they will use WebView, it will only add 1~5 MB to the game files, unless you target Android 4 or older (in that case the build will include Crosswalk and will take + 50 MB)

@Ethan
If it's like Kyatric said, it took you 3 minutes because C3 also downloaded NW.js first time. Try a few builds to see if the other ones are faster.

Thanks!
I've been playing around with it and it's actually better than C2's imho.
