OSX & Linux with Node-webkit games

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Jun 01, 2014 9:45 pm

Hi,

I have just about completed my game. Designed for the PC desktop with node webkit. It has mouse & keyboard support complete with PC xbox controller too.

Now as anyone who has output to node webkit knows you also get a OSX & Linux versions of your game too. Unfortunately i have neither of these available to test. Has anyone had issues with these versions of their games ? Does the Xbox controller work ?

Any thoughts appreciated :)

Mac works fine and so does the xbox controller. Never got the Linux one to work on Ubuntu 13/latest, don't think anyone cares about that.

@alspal

Do you mean the game wouldnt work on Linux or the controller ? Its not really a major issue i suppose but i dont want to offer the game for Linux if its not going to work ok.

OSX seems to work well, except for pretty old machines. I'm interested in Linux as well. I don't quite accept 'nobody cares about Linux gaming'. If that was true, Linux gaming wouldn't exist.

I would also be interested about this, but I don't have linux installed at the moment. And I don't have Xbox controller so that won't help much. So not very usefull input, but still :D

The nodewebkit export doesn't work on Ubuntu 13 is what I meant to say, no idea about the controller.

@sqiddster if that was in reference to me, I mean it in the sense that there's not much demand/care for getting C2 games to work on Linux among our community.

The forthcoming Steam machines run some form of Linux i think so it might be useful if it does work.

Sorry to bump but I'd like to share too.

I also never got the Node Webkit export to work on Ubuntu13, haven't tried any other distros though.

I did get it to work on OSX but I remember having to use a command on the .app file before running it. I can't remember what it was and I've been searching around for it to no avail. Does it just work out of the box now?
