Selection frame like in RTS games, works both on mobile and desktop devices.
  • Hello and thanks for reading this message.

    I have a silly question, but which is not the answer.

    When we do a project in Construct 2, we have a gray frame limiter, which limits the movement across the screen.

    When we execute the project from Construct 2, the frame limiter appears:

    <img src="http://oi44.tinypic.com/huk6ro.jpg" border="0" />

    However, if we export the project to HTML5, and run it online, this frame limiter disappears, although the limit of movement across the screen still works:

    <img src="http://oi44.tinypic.com/bvgy.jpg" border="0" />

    Why disappears the gray bounding box when we run online?.

    Thanks and regards.

  • Hi Jesusruis,

    This gray frame is part of CSS styling of the web page. You can add a similar style via CSS to your index.html page (or any other styling you wish).

    The key point is, it has got nothing to do with the game itself - the frame is outside of the game rectangle, and does not limit or influence anything inside the game.

    Example css style to re-create the nice border:

    #canvasBox {
         top: 5%;     
         left: 50%;     
         margin: 0 auto;
       background: #616161;
       border: 1px solid #8F8F8F;
       padding: 15px;
       -moz-border-radius: 10px;
       -webkit-border-radius: 10px;
       border-radius: 10px;

    Hope it helps,


  • It's purely decoration for preview. If you like, you can add the decoration back to the export by copying the HTML and CSS.

  • Try Construct 3

  • Thank you very much for the answers, you are very kind.

    I'll try the CSS, although it's nice to know I can set any other frame.

    Millions of thanks and greetings.
