Exporting with CocoonJS

  • I'll switch to CJS until the performance issues with Crosswalk are resolved and would like to know what should I be aware of.

    • my game is similar to Flappy Bird style
    • want to target iOS and Android (lower versions better, but it's ok if only iOS8+ & Android 4.0+)
    • using leaderboards, ads and IAP

    Should I use canvas+ or can I use WebView+? I've read about some audio problems, screen flickering, crashes, long loading times. How does it look now, near April 2015? What problems could I have while exporting with CJS?

  • 1) Canvas+ is for Android

    WebView+ is for iOS

    Canvas+ is good (faster than Crosswalk)

    and WebView+ is very smooth (I didn't check but Silverforce did )

    2) Recently I didn't experience audio problems on Android app

    3) C2 loader is not visible in CocoonJS, but there was some post with information how can you fix it (so players will see loading bar or percentage); we could ask Ashley to fix it, but we all know the answer <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile">

    4) You should remember that loading images on mobiles is slower than on PC. So it is important to optimize size of images (i.e. remove not neccessary images, change resolution) = you can save a few seconds of loading time.

    5) The biggest issue is that now you can use only MoPub for ads. And MoPub means low fillrate and NO backfill from AdSense. So you will get #clt@$$#$# fillrate and $#@#@# eCPM.

    HOWEVER...

    there are Atomic Plugins made by Ludei, but you can't use them yet in ludei cloud service. Ludei told that they are still working on updating their cloud service.

    When they will do that (= native AdMob in Canvas+ / WebView+) then CocoonJS will shine like a star

    Usable links:

    https://github.com/ludei/Construct-2-plugin

    https://github.com/ludei/atomic-plugins-c2

    Summing up: you can release your game without bigger problems (I think so) but we are still waiting for native ads...

  • Try Construct 3

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

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads

    Atomic plugins look promising, hopefully the cloud activation isn't far away. Thank you for the summary.

    It is not far, but it requires more work than expected. The main problem we are facing now it that we are moving to Cordova. And we are testing what implies to export C2 using Cordova for Canvas+ and the Atomic Plugins. So far, C2 requires jQuery. Canvas+ does not support it yet. That is why is taking some time.

    In addition, it will be possible not only to use the atomic plugins, but any single plugin available on a public cordova repository.

    Regards.

    thanks for update,

    so is it matter of weeks or months?

    I mean: Atomic Plugins + C2 + Cloud service

  • Hello,

    A matter of weeks. We expect not to find more difficulties.

    Regards.

  • ludei Cordova for Canvas+ sounds great!
