Title says it all. Anyone knows a method to export games made in MZ or MV that include node.js scripts to android? Majority of the methods I've seen are basically mini browsers that load your game, but browsers have no support for all th extra stuff node.js has, thus my game won't run

You can try building it with Android JS. You will need some minimal programming knowledge.

Worked on that for a while... then noticed that ALL nodejs code needs to be within a single index.js file. Is there any alternative?

Sorry, I haven't used it too much. But you should be able to replicate how nwjs does it (look at the index.html of a MV project for example)

it would be possible... but would require such a huge amount of work, and maybe for me to have 2 sepparate files for a mobile and a desktop version of my game, considering how I make use of node-specific code in many parts of it.

NodeJS's scripts don't work on mobile or at least not in a way where it's easy to do.
You could use a framework that bridges the mobile code with the frontend, like Cordova (cordova.apache.org) or capacitor (capacitorjs.com) does. I would recommend you to start with Capacitor, since it's easier to write a plugin using that. I haven't tried with Android but writing a plugin for iOS it's a breeze in comparison to Cordova by a lot.

Why keyboards don't sleep? Because they have two shifts.
I realized a while ago my game was toooo big in scope. even now I wonder am I trying to do too much by myself. and that's after completely changing the format of the game.
Last week at SLC. Cali awaits. TBH I love SLC more than SF.
Back home now. I had a good time, but I had a checkup this morning so I had to come home for that. Now I'm just waiting for my therapist meeting tomorrow...
Decided to work on Wishful Wanda today. Since it's a BFB spinoff game, I decided to make the Huang brothers
Easter eggs! I'm actually pitching this to the BFDI team, btw.
I'm a bit perturbed that my two week project in a different engine is already shaping up to be far better than anything I've done in this one. It really calls into question my future plans. :kaoswt:

I guess I'll release whatever patches I made for Poppet Quest, then abandon it for my new project. I mean unless it somehow wins (I doubt it but hey sure). I'm not sure about And Remember Tomorrow.
