Construct 3 NW.js desktop app [Deprecated]

From the Asset Store
Casino? money? who knows? but the target is the same!
  • Can Ashley or anyone following this topic let me know if a Mac version for the desktop ever released?

  • construct.net/en/tutorials/exporting-macos-wkwebview-2718

    Thank you, but that's not what I'm asking. Years ago Ashley said he planned to make a C3 desktop build for Mac and I'd like to download it if it's available.

  • If he did he would use that... probably.

    I think he's a bit tired a version control though.

  • The instructions in the original post should work for any platform NW.js supports: Windows, Mac and Linux. However I would advise to use Construct in the browser wherever possible, as it has almost all the features of the desktop build, and is more reliable.

  • As a random confirmation, I successfully used the Remote Preview tool in Linux (Manjaro).

    I used Construct 3 in Chrome, and used the remote preview tool so that I can preview my project in NWJS. I installed NWJS and needed to copy/paste the remote tool files (which was the complicated part, as Manjaro, by default, doesn't allow you to write files to the system folders - you either use the terminal to copy the files as root access, or you use a different file browser that allows root access to system files). Worked great after!

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

  • I ended up having issues with this on Windows. When trying to open the nw.exe alongside the package.json file, I keep getting an error in debug that says "Cannot open ZIP from file handle" with the hex right after.

    If I try to run it without it though, nw.js features become unavailable.

    Any idea as to why this might be?

  • Running Construct in NW.js is now deprecated and will no longer be supported (see the updated original post). Please switch to using Construct in the browser at editor.construct.net instead.

  • The preview for Nwjs tool is broken for me. When I load the remote preview it gives me a chromium style failed to load page.

  • "The webpage at preview.construct.net might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

    ERR_FAILED"

    console log:

    The FetchEvent for "https://preview.construct.net/" resulted in a network error response: the promise was rejected.

  • Ah, that looks like a bug in NW.js 0.64.1. I reported it to NW.js here.

    NW.js 0.64.0 is not affected so download that version instead and it should work.
