[SOLVED] Add sprite in an "application"

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Wed Nov 20, 2013 8:40 pm




Hi everyone,
I'm actually working on a small application with Construct Classic.
I used "Application" as project runtime instead of DirectX.
But... It seems to be that for Construct Classic, a application can't have sprites, and so, pictures.

My question is: how to add a picture to an application then?
Second question: I could use the DirectX runtime, but is that a good choice for a simple system interactive application?
I mean, the application wouldn't use any animated graphics or other game type elements, just some file manipulation, so...

Thanks in advance!Lapstern2013-11-22 18:52:50

Unfortunately you will need to use DirectX I believe. The application mode is really just "Windows controls only mode", and doesn't have much of any graphical rendering capabilities :(
"Construct 4 lets YOU make advanced games! (but not play them)" Construct Classic - Examples Kit Dropbox is a pile of trash and if you need my old files PM me! :)

You can add a image at runtime by using python to access the winapi:

But it likely is simpler to just use the directx runtime.
