I fear that you're both talking of different things - and to be honest, I don't think you've solved Xeeko's problem. I also think it is basically the same as my own, so let me try and clarify my issue:
I need to use local .txt files in my projects that keep changing by other apps accessing them.
Simply put, I need to access local .txt files that are not embedded in the project whilst in preview mode. How would you do that?
-Would real-time importing a file to the project be a solution? How do you do that?
I had a couple of projects in Construct 2 where I was able to load the contents of a TXT file in preview, using NWjs or AJAX.
This was easy and functional in Construct 2 - you had several ways of importing a file and read its contents. Now because of the way Construct 3 works (especially on preview that runs on "https://preview.construct.net", instead of localhost), it seems to fire up CORS policies - and it obviously won't access any files on the "construct.net" "folder".
I also tried exporting the project but the embedded project txt files don't show up in the export folder at all. How would I edit them with an external editor?
Please disregard security concerns or efficiency - this is for local usage in my own computer where no one else has access to - and my disks are fast enough for what I need.
Thank you for your support!
