Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Apr 18, 2013 1:37 am

Right now Classic is effectively retired. We have not yet made an official announcement to that end, but we probably will at some point. Everyone familiar with the move from Classic to C2 knows it was a ground-up rewrite with a modified feature set. I assumed everyone not familiar with the transition would be new users who would naturally pick the newer and better supported C2, so I'm curious as to why you would pick the older and unmaintained Classic instead. Maybe we should hurry up and officially retire it to avoid people expecting its features in C2.

I have to admit it always find it weird having to add the "2" when talking about Construct to someone
If CC is here to stay around, C2 could be something like Construct Live or Construct Universal
It's probably hard to change the name now tho :p

Agreed! @Ashley should have called it Ultimate Hyper Gaiden Construct 2: HTML5 Turbo Collector's Anniversary Special Championship Edition.

That rolls better off the tongue. ;)Manley232013-04-18 02:29:46

The future may seem to be HTML5, but it's also 3D and increased immersion (Oculus Rift, and eventually neural jacking etc.) So I hope one day Scirra will move into that area.

As I just said on the previous page, they already did that, that's why it's called construct classic and not just construct.

Yeah I saw that, but I think teledine meant to have a different name for C2 as well

I'm just trying to say that the number "2" doesn't work that well as it's not an update from a version "1", which doesn't exist. So it would have made sense to have a branch name for each version, namely Construct Classic and Construct Live (for example)
Or CC and CL for people who don't like super_long_names_with_extensions

Anyway let's head back to the OP as this is probably not gonna change any time soon

@Ashley Personally I think some of it might be the fact the two share the same forum. There not much more frustrating than using the forum search, finding the perfect answer only to realize it was for CC haha.
