    I’m using Monkey2 and my gaming framework to make my website with. With Monkey2’s built in access to MySql, interesting things should happen.

    Is anyone else doing this? Have a link?

    Try fullscreen (using the button and resize checked). No matter what I try I cant seem to get the 1080p view to resize to a smaller size within the browser.

    Are in 720p natively?

    I think I have a solution. I have added a resolution selection window. It will allow will allow 720p on upto 4K. I have to fix a bug in my GUI but I should get this working today. But it seems to work. 🙂

    Cool idea. Any chance you can remove the top bar with the Resize canvas / Hide mouse pointer?

    If I would create a web site with Monkey2, I would also have a lowband page too for people with slow net. Even on my 60meg connection it took a while to show up.

    I have updated the site and added a resolution selection window. Now you can go from 720p to 4K resolutions. All very experimental. Image below is the site at 3K.

    I can. I’ll see how it does with just F11 (fullscreen) in the browser.

    It only takes about 15 seconds here on my 3Mb connection, then about 7 or so seconds to run (on a first time download). Try a shift+reload button and see how long it takes to get the data, then how long it takes to run after it’s downloaded. 😉

    Once it’s cached though it loads almost instantly.

    I removed the header bar and added a settings icon to the main window (brings up resolution selection).  Added a title bar to settings.

    I was hoping someone else had made a site with Monkey. I’m surprised no one has tried this. Fun!

    Took over 10 seconds on my machine/connection with shift+reload…

    therevills,

    I think thats pretty good as some of that time is probably initialization on Emscriptens part. The actual data total thats downloaded is 6.7MB.

    Did you see your starfield effect. 😀

    I suppose. But to be honest the website is aimed at PC gamers. The .wasm file is about 2.9MB and the .data file is 3.1MB. What would increase app load times is to lighten the .data payload via the use of HttpRequst. So far, I’ve not been able to get it to work in Emscripten. Maybe someone here has?

    The other cool thing to get going would be theorplayer with Emscripten. Now that Monkey2 is starting to thread this may be possible.

    I think I can pull this off give the above. 🙂
