Read from random File

  • I know there is no direct way to do this, but I am open to suggestions.

    I want to be able to read from a local folder a series of xml.

    /root

    Application.exe

    /levels

    1.xml

    2.xml

    3.xml

    I want to be able to point Construct 2 at a folder, pick a file at random, and load it. One way is to say get file Int(Random(0,100))+".xml" or something like that. But I'm not seeing a way to do it on the fly. This leads to issues like people slipping bad data into an XML file.

    (maybe put some type of key system in there)

    I could make it one large XML, but I don't know if that is scaleable. Consider this, if I have an XML with 200 nodes of level data, you have to walk that entire document every time. If you break it up into 200 files, your app can target a much smaller dataset.

    Thoughts?
