Suggestion: export more than one project at a time

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Oct 06, 2016 3:02 pm

i would like to have the option to export all projects in a given folder at once rather then to go into each project and start export one by one.

fyi: i need this feature because, i handle 60+ game project with lots of similarities between them and there are no cross projects feature at all (except dragging objects around).
if there are any cool tips about handling such a thing, i would love to hear about it.
i usually manipulate the xml files of the projects with my own exe code, to handle mass projects, i cannot mass export though without going in and opening C2.

would also love to hear Ashly :)

Until something like that is available you could use one of the numerous windows UI automation and macro tools (they let you record mouse clicks and keyboard entries and play them back, also allow variables for input (to set export names, in your case). There are literally hundreds of those, mainly targeted for automated software testing, but they can be used for a task like yours.

Please, can you give me some links? It's not related to the suggested feature in my case, but a software that can record mouse and keyboard event and save them in a file or play them back can be invaluable to a current research project. I couldn't find anything like that. I think I'm using the wrong keywords for searching.
