How do I Fix a game that was made using webgl effects.

  • I finally finished a game. I built the whole thing on my laptop and decided to put it on my desktop to upload it. And I guess my desktop doesn't have webgl and the game looks awful.. is there some easy fix I'm missing or am I doomed to redo a bunch of stuff so that it works without webgl... thanks

    This may mean you're using a browser that doesn't support WebGL, or has it disabled.

    Some browsers have a setting labeled "Use hardware acceleration" or something similar. If this is disabled, WebGL might not work.

    An alternative is to export the project as an NW.js desktop application.

    A NW.js application takes your game and bundles the WebGL and HTML5 platform stuff in with it.

    This way you don't need to rely on a browser for those things, though your file will be bigger as a result.

    To try previewing your game with NW.js:

    In the "Projects" panel, click the project folder (top-most folder).

    Then in the "Properties" panel, in the "Configuration Settings" section, change "Preview browser" to "NW.js".

    Now preview your game.

    You may need to download NW.js for Construct 2 first from here:

    Also, if you have a Windows computer you may need to install DirectX. Though installing NW.js for C2 should automatically prompt you to install DirectX if needed.
