Greenlit flixel game, how to port to Steam?
« on: Sun, Nov 29, 2015 »
Hi,

I've done my Googling and apparently there is only two ways, one is to use HaxeFlixel and another is Adobe AIR. I'm a bit on a tight schedule and can't test them both. What do you guys would recommend and why?

Thanks.

I've partially ported my game to HaxeFlixel before, but after a few weeks of porting I hit some serious brick walls, mainly API stuff. If you have a small project you could port it to HaxeFlixel, but otherwise I'd suggest using AIR.

I released Super Lemonade Factory on Steam using AIR.

The joystick extension I used seems to crash a lot, so Joystick is not good with AIR. Still, everything else works.

If you have questions I might be able to help. It's quite a process.
