I need an .exe file to upload to itch.io but how can you publish for windows with GS?

    Hi @sinbot,

    .exe publishing for Windows isn’t a feature of GameSalad at the momet (perhaps never).

    The only possible way I know of is to publish to HTML5 and wrap it in an .exe as described in link here:

    https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/576/method-to-create-a-single-html-exe-file

    I’ve tried this method with some success, but it relies on the fact that your game will need to run well when published in HTML5, most games will suffer from the usual sound/text/behaviour issues that have been regulary reported in the forums.

    I hope that helps.

    Not to mention performance issues.... it's dog slow for slightly more ambitious games, and lots of things just plain don't work.... :frowning:

    Thanks guys I'll give that a try. I did noticed html5 had some glitches but fingers crossed...
