Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Does anyone know...

If you export your project from Construct 2 as a WIndows 8 export, open the SLN file up in Visual Studio 2015... would you be able to build and export that from VS 2015 as an android APK?

I see VS2015 allows for exporting to android.

Have you tried it?

Going to give it a shot tonight when I get home and the chores are done..., unless anyone tells me of the madness in the theory.

Got it to build the unsigned apk in Visual Studio 2015. Half the size of the IntelXDK build.

Do a Cordova export from Construct 2. Create a new Cordova app in Visual Studio 2015. Drag the contents of your Cordova export into the www folder of your Visual Studio Cordova app.

From there you can debug test it Ripple - Nexus and build it for android.

And what about the Crosswalk advantages (WebGL, Memory management, Letterbox fullscreen modes supported, Support for XML parsing, Support for web fonts)??

Dude I was just wondering this myself, glad you were able to successfully test it, now I need to try it myself.

Thank you for this!

@Trent123 I got it working using Visual Studio 2015. but I got 10 FPS instead of 60 with IntelXDK. Do you know how to specify the browser (Crosswalk version maybe) ? What FPS do you get compared to IntelXDK ? I am actually pleased that the game starts instantly and the apk is 400KB, insane difference, but performance is very bad.

Interesting topic. If it's worth the time I might try exporting my XDK game with VS2015. Although I don't know how to sign an apk...

@glerikud if you only want to test it, VS2015 builds 2 apk : one is unsigned (and need to be signed by you) and the other apk is already signed with a debug key ready to be uploaded to your Android device.
