  • Hi!

    I see this for old topic:

    It's a fundamental restriction of browsers. What are you trying to do? Why can't you use NW.js? That is the best answer.

    Ashley, how can this limit be circumvented? (C3)

    If you say can not, I will be very surprised!

    There is a lot of software that gives us a local executable HTML5 file!

    With photos and audio and, etc!

    (I need to export game as a html 5 game, and after import it in android studio (webview) )

  • For yourself you can just start a server with Python.

    For others use Nwjs, or the Windows Wrapper.

    Oddly enough if you upload it you can then install it as a pwa.

  • (I need to export game as a html 5 game, and after import it in android studio (webview) )

    This is what the Cordova setup does for you.

  • The limit of being unable to run projects on the file: protocol cannot be circumvented. It is there for security reasons. However it should not matter. Use the Cordova exporter for Android/iOS, the Windows WebView2/macOS WKWebView/NW.js exporters for desktop, etc. and everything will work. If you still want to test a HTML5 export locally, as mentioned you can use a local web server too.

    Hi Ashley

    why this limit just for construct?

    and another software create HTML5 file don't have this limit?

  • It's not a limit for Construct, it's a limit built-in to browsers. For security reasons all sub-resource requests on the file: protocol count as cross-origin, as if they came from an entirely different website. Often that means requests fail or security restrictions block features from working.

    Some simple tests or more feature-limited engines might not have any issues, but Construct has a sophisticated engine with a wide range of features, and the browser security restrictions mean it always gets blocked. However as I said it shouldn't matter: if you want something to double-click and run, use a desktop exporter.

  • Try Construct 3

    Oh, thanks Ashley!

    you don't have any idea for using games made with construct in android studio?!

  • Use the Android exporter.
