Hey bois, i'm trying to make an riddle game, and the first challenge is for the player to realize that, he will have to go inside the game folder, and open a file called "Layout.txt", which contain the following letters:
And then, every time he starts the game, he reads the part ("Blank") soon, Blank, will go to a variable in which it will be compared, and if he agrees with the comparison, he will move to another layout, soon at first. My problem is, how can i do to read a file outside of construct 2 (I don't want any suggestions to be told to add the file to C2) on a specific line? (I've tried using ajax, NWjs, however, I don't know how to read a file from outside C2, and this will be necessary because the player itself will have to change it, and if I upload it to C2, the player will not have access to the file.)
Objective: To be able to read the specific part of the text file outside Construct 2 (Like in game's directory , in which if the player changes to the name of some layout (which will be given when the player finishes a puzzle within the game)), in which that he will do to progress, he changes the layout for the written agreement where the ("Blank") is, (Blank is the initial layout, so the player will have to change the name to enter the next one.) and then, continue progressing in the game, and changing layouts through of that system.
Summarized: Read ("Blank"), in an text file that has to be outside of the Construct (Like in the game's folder), using ajax, NWjs or any other plugin, in which you can read text files outside the Construct.
Please help, i'm trying to solve this for more than an day, i know this is such an specific question, but, any help will be so grateful!
