      Construct 3 Launcher - Q&A

      ► What are the system requirements?

      Windows 95+ ; ~5mb disk space; 30mb RAM; DirectX 9.0c

      ► Why do I need this, what has been made more "simple"?

      Construct 3 Desktop users are currently required to opt into the stable channel or beta channel version of C3 Desktop. This launcher makes things easier and doesn't require any specific release channel.

      ► Which Construct 3 Desktop release channel version do I need?

      It doesn't matter. The launcher works with any release channel version of Construct 3 Desktop.

      ► Do I always have to use the C3 launcher now?

      No! You just have to launch a release once. Construct 3 Desktop will always run based on that decision.

      ► Can I keep using Construct 3 Desktop by directly running project files?

      Yes! Once you've launched the release version you like, you can keep running Construct 3 Desktop, by directly clicking on the executable or project files (e.g. c3p files).
