@Awakening - you'll be able to re-use the Browser object's Request Fullscreen and Cancel Fullscreen actions to enter and exit fullscreen with Awesomium apps too.

Awesome, one of my most expected features.

In the future, will there be a smaller exe export option (with no additional 10+ MB)? And when can we expect the linux-mac export? Not that I'd use them probably, but it would make C2 even better.

We have no plans to make a smaller export option - this will be the desktop exporter for the forseeable future. There's really very little to gain by rewriting an entire engine just to save a few megabytes, especially since it could be 6 months+ of dedicated work.

Mac and Linux support should arrive as soon as Awesomium support it.

@Ashley : you can UPX all .dll and the .exe (http://upx.sourceforge.net).
The compression ratio is about the same as .rar. The UPX code decompressed itself at runtime, so it stay the same size ondisk.

@Pode - great idea! That's reduced the empty project overhead to about 11mb, and it still seems to work fine. With some other tricks, it's brought Space Blaster's file size down from 21mb to 14.5mb. I've updated the download with the new smaller file.Ashley2012-06-22 17:23:02

I don't know the exact FPS since it's not displayed, but it's at least 50fps here. Very nice. Some fonts are illegible though.

[QUOTE=Ashley]- It should be possible to access files on disk as well.[/QUOTE]

WHOO HOO HOO

By any chance, would it be possible to set a preference or have an extra key command or quick access toolbar button for 'preview as EXE' instead of having to export to it?

That would be very, VERY helpful for those of us wanting to have disk file access frequently.

Awesome! Runs beautifully on my laptop, though it still has the bizarre transparency issue from the previous test demonstration.
