Single File Wrapper

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Jul 20, 2012 2:01 am

Hey guys, I apologize if this has been answered elsewhere, but I've searched the forums and online and found nothing helpful. I've recently created an FGL account (Flash Games License) and have a Flash game I worked on up for bid. FGL only seems to accept single file apps, is there any way to do this with C2? I'd prefer to be using Construct 2 as I'm much more comfortable in it and find it a more streamlined and intuitive development environment, but I need to be able to wrap exported projects into a single container file. Any suggestions?

Construct 2 doesn't really support this, HTML5 games need a whole set of files to work properly. Would they accept a zip of Construct 2's output?

@ Ashley
Zips are no good, because they need to be able to link to one file only for embedding and downloading, apparently opening a zip is too complicated for sponsors :S lol. I'm guessing this is just a relic of the fact its primarily a flash marketplace. You can wrap an entire game in a .swf file, so it's both self-contained, but immediately usable for sponsors.

@Prinsukun
interesting link, I'll investigate it more and report back for everyone

Thanks for the replies!

Does FGL accept any other type of file besides .swf?
