Games for Mac Desktop/Laptop and Embedded Open URL behavior.

My game is set to open full screen. The button with the open url behavior is opening a browser behind the game and its opening a safari browser even if the embedded is checked or not.

If we are stuck with a typical browser.. can we at least get the dang browser to pop open above the game.

You have no way of knowing the browser popped up until you close the game. Waste of a behavior and the pro cost if its not gonna work properly. or in a expected manner.

Granted this is testing from the GSC preview... the HTML5 Preview.. and the publish and download adhoc test.

Is this different in the official file game file downloaded from apple store? If so cool. If not then my original opinion toward this behavior stays.

    Embedded only works on mobile devices iirc. You'll want to leave it unchecked on desktop applications, but it's been awhile since I've tested.

    This is an OS-level function you are asking for -- switching over to another app, essentially.

    There is no way to have the browser pop-up 'above' the game if you are running it full-screen, as there is no 'above' or 'below,' only the full-screen environment by which the OS excludes all else (perhaps except notifications and such).

    I actually like this. Cause I'll set a rule to open up the url as they are closing out the game. That way there is a url page. With comment page or like us on Facebook page. Etc etc. advertisement page.
