When publishing a game I see there are lots of options. But how do I publish the game as a runnable offline file on my computer?
Export Project > Node Webkit
You will find a folder with subfolders of for each operating system.
Says I need to buy a license. I am guessing there is no way around that?

That is a limitation of the free version. Features available are shown HERE.

Node Webkit is free to use, independent of C2 - you can grab it and manually package any HTML5 app into a NW package - Construct2 simply does automatically for you all the tedious setup work ;-)
Considering the ratio of incredibely useful features to a very reasonable price, I'd say it's better to buy a license for C2 than to waste time with manual export to NW ;-)
Yes, looking though the features it looks like a very good deal. Thanks for all your help!
