EXE wrapper for HTML5 - alpha test

  • Hmm seems to take FOREVER to load here.. and when you open it sometimes, it starts instantly but missing sprites and invisible spaceship, but that might be the loading time.. used 5-10 min now still under 50% :S

  • CandyFace, it has to load online at first, and there seems to be a bug that if you close it half way and launch it again, it doesn't finish loading so some things come up blank. However that's just because it's loading online, the real thing would load off disk so that would likely never happen.

  • Please note: we may make this a licensed-only feature.

    Don't. You can then enforce the "Made With Construct 2" splash screen like this to free users. <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    Tested in my work computer. dll issue, but game ran ok, sound and all. On close, there was an error message.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    well.. after the load time, which was loong.. does the game run perfect, no glitches here. so this could look promising

  • If you get the d3dx9_43.dll error, can you try installing this?

    It's similar to the DirectX update that Construct Classic needs. Turns out Chromium itself also requires it.

    After installing that, there are no more errors when opening the game, although for some reason now the game runs very slow, but it might be unrelated to this.

  • Works well for me with windows vista. <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> can't wait!

  • Win 7 Pro x64

    Runs very well. Impressively, in fact. No issues / errors from start to finish.

  • Runs well here. Maybe some frame skipping but I can't really tell. Some effects like explosions, and the fire effect when the ships moves, have a translucent box around them. Don't know if this intended or not. Gave me the same error as HotGod the first time I closed it, but never again the other two times.

    Must report that my attention span increased so much playing this as an EXE. Happy that a HTML5 game kept my attention for much more than a few seconds.

      Windows 7 64-bit Sp1 Intel Core i3 CPU M370

      2.40GHz

    4GB RAM

    Intel HD Graphics Core i3

    Latest drivers

    This is promising.

  • Worked well for me too, 64 Bit windows 7 at 60 fps all time.

  • Perect here too. Fast load. Fast execution. Not sure if 60fps though. A text with fps would be helpful. Win7 x64. One question : How the game files will be embed ? In a folder ? Inside the EXE ? And how do you plan to make the export game as EXE ? Of course the best option would be a simple option on editor Export as EXE or something, that would package everything ?

  • WinXP SP3: Demo worked flawlessly.

    Please do make this a licensed only feature.

    That way it might get a lot more polished. Thank You!

    Played the demo from start to finish. YOU WIN!-at the 3rd or 4th try. Very addictive Space Blaster demo you have there. No DLL errors, game run very nice. Little sound lag at the beginning and there is development time to optimize speed. Awesomium is awesome!! Good that is still early. Awaiting any update on this front! Monetizing games will be a heck of a lot easier this way. :DD

    Once we have compiled our first game EXE-s and its ready for donate or pre-purchase:

    Protection against pirates could be effective by simply releasing a new version using new content every week. Crackers will get annoyed with frequent updates quickly. The idea is to try to make good updates so everyone wants to try the new features!

    Very good news!!!!!! Thank You Scirra!!!!!

  • Worked perfectly here, But I got an error message after closing the game

    Win 7 x32

    This is promising.

    I forgot to add this too: watching Ashleys EXE wrapper run perfectly on my PC increased my Space-Blasting attention five-fold and gave so much hope! Armed with an EXE finally we can be serious game developers!! :D

  • Nice! I got a 'c2wrap.exe has stopped working' message upon closing as well, but it loaded quickly. The fps wasn't great on my machine either though - it was consistent, but no higher than maybe 30 fps.

  • 60 fps all the time here...on win7 32,but i also got the "c2wrap.exe has stopped working" message...great tool anyway
