There is now support for local file & folder saves in Chrome. This works right from the browser - there's no need to download the desktop app version for file access!
What you can do with it
- Save single-file projects (.c3p) anywhere on disk (previously you could only 'Download a copy')
- Open a single-file project (.c3p), edit it, and save it back over the original file on disk
- Use folder-based projects in the browser
- Set backups to be saved to a local folder
This is made possible by a new experimental feature in Chrome which we are using in Construct 3. You can help test it too.
Accessing the feature
This feature is available when you use:
- Construct 3 r219.2+
- Chrome 86+
In the main menu you should now find options Open local file and Open local project folder. These will load projects directly from disk. If you then edit them and press Save, it will save back over the same file/folder on disk. Similarly there are new save options Save as single file... and Save as project folder.... You will see various permission prompts while using these to ensure Chrome can access the files/folders on disk, but generally once you've granted access to a particular file/folder, you can continue using it for the rest of the session without any further prompts.
