Using Construct 2 from Dropbox

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Aug 28, 2015 10:00 am

Would Construct work If I download one into my dropbox folder, and launch it from any computer I have log in with dropbox? And If it wouldn't, is there any way to use it in cloud?

You just want to play the game online out of your drop box?

It's easy, just put the game folder in DropBox, and right click the Index.html and select "Copy Public Link"

Then paste the link online, or in an HTML page.

like this pong game:

*** Edit: -Sorry as of Oct 2016 dropbox no longer supports playable game links

If your Dropbox is less than 3 years old then you'll need to create a public folder - just Google for the link.

You mean Construct the program. Like run it from your dropbox and start working? I dunno, the easiest way to find out is to try it. It would admitedly be a very handy if it works.

Well construct is portable so, as long as you make sure that all files are downloaded first, it should work fine.

Also I would be wary of having the license file in any kind of private cloud service, it may be better to keep it outside this folder and putting it each time in your documents folder instead (I may be paranoid).

Also, the nw.js preview might not work as expected if C2 is used like that.
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.
