Preview in multiple browsers?

Post » Thu Apr 06, 2017 4:16 pm

How long before we can preview our games in browsers other than Chrome? Will that feature be available in the desktop version of C3?

Remote preview can do that - but it depends on WebRTC, so just Firefox at first :P (it's coming to other browsers). It's not actually that easy to add in the desktop build, since we don't run a HTTP server any more, but we could look in to it.

It's an interesting question. Since C3 works offline as well, how do users preview their work in different browsers if they don't have access to the Scirra servers generating the link? Also, if those servers are down by accident or maintenance, how do the users preview in other browsers?

I'm torn between C2 and C3 even more now. It sounds like developing a game that works well in Safari is going to be a huge chore. Considering that most of the web is accessed by mobile devices these days, ignoring iPhone/iPad users is a mistake I think.

@Ashley, by support for C2, do you mean just bug fixes, or adapting it for the web as the web changes?
