Solved (Build Arcade Environment)

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue Jul 14, 2015 2:14 pm

Hi

Is it possible to start game B from within a game A.
Then when the player quits game B he automatically goes back to game A.

I want to build a Arcade environment to launch my games and/or switch between them.
If it is not possible with construct 2 can u then point me in the right direction?

Im exporting to NodeWebkit

Kind Regards.

When you say "automatically goes back" that could mean one of two things ; do you go back to the position in the game you are already in, or do you go back and restart the game ; which do you mean ?

Good Question @paulscottrobson

It means this.

Game A = Arcade environment (its a menu to choose which game to play)
Game B = any game made with construct 2

Player chooses a game in the Arcade Environment (Game A) and presses play.
The Arcade Environment loads the game (which is a external game).
Player plays that game for a while and quits that game.
Player is automatically thrown back into the Arcade environment so he can choose a different game to play.

Hope this explanation makes better sense.

Ok, i looked deeper into the NW.js Object and it works.
U can run a executable from within a game.
And it does not quit the game already running.
So in my case its perfect, the player always goes back into the arcade :-)
