Thank you for responding.
The desktop download of C3 never checked for NW.js version updates either ... rather than having to wait for us to distribute updates (which is a bottleneck I also wanted to remove.)
It sounds like the primary issue here is that the C3 desktop build does not automatically update. Is that an impossible thing to code?
It would have to be an entirely separate parallel update system. Besides, since the previewer uses your own version of NW.js, at least you can update immediately or to any minor or nightly release version,
Is a seperate update system better than none?
Shifting the burden entirely to the users to maintain updates does not feel like progress towards a better future, but instead a regression to older times.
Currently, browsers cannot launch executables for security reasons.
That's unfortunate, would be so cool to have the window open and paste the link across automatically.
I'm getting the impression that browsers just aren't quite ready to support C3 desktop development.
Have you seen the new remote preview options in the latest beta?
Thanks, yeah I think it's the choice of layout to run from? That's good, though what I was pointing towards with my post was having a faster shortcut to access Remote Preview, like a hotkey. For instance F5 opens regular preview, but what about Remote Preview? Or allowing the user to change this button to remote preview as well, since it's the primary way to test games.
