    I wonder if Construct 2 could make an use of this library?

  • Our engine already does most the things on that list, and those it doesn't are already planned. Generally we prefer to avoid using third party libraries and write our own version, especially if they're small (this one's only 5k), so we don't get hosed if the library author disappears/breaks it/doesn't want to maintain it.

  • Try Construct 3

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

  • Well, it appears to be open source, so you could at least get some ideas and possibly more efficient methods there.

  • Hi, The current C2 audio does not work at all on Android, neither android browser nor chrome on android. Sounds dont play at all, clip, or happen late. Music wont play etc. Colleagues have got audio working perfectly on android using howler. I guess we are going to have to try and get howler integrated with C2, as sound on android is a requirement, unfortunately. It has to be HTML5 - apps are not an option. Anyone already working on this?
