C2 and bootcamp

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Mar 19, 2012 8:53 am

Hey
I'm going to buy an iMAC and will installed Seven x64 PRO on it via Bootcamp.
I'm wondering if some of you have already done this and just want to know if there's any difference with C2 started on a PC ?
Thanks for sharing your experience.

I don't own a mac but it's my understanding that bootcamp is just a dual boot system. In that case you'll be running win 7 natively so it should work just the same as on any other win 7 system

The only exception i can think of is if C2 tries to access the mac partition for some reason but i don't see why it would try that

Yea, better safe than sorry
Hopefully a mac user can confirm but i can't think of any issues seeing as iMacs are either i5 or i7 intel systems now

Don't worry, bootcamp will work fine. There is no difference running W7 using bootcamp or on a Windows pc. I don't like to dual boot, so I'm using VirtualBox to run Windows 7. I only use a few applications that are Windows only and VirtualBox suits my needs perfectly.

I'm sure you'll love your new Mac. I made the jump from Windows about 18 months ago and have only one regret: I should have switched earlier. ;-)

Yeah, @Lost is alright you will not have any trouble in this migration, the only thing you need to carefull is to correct define how much of HD space you will give to bootcamp partition. Because to change this later give you some extra work.

I run bootcamp and Windows 7 on 1 of my iMacs, and on the other one i run Parrallels desktop and Windows 7.
The cool thing with Parallels is that you don't have to restart your Mac and it runs as good as bootcamp and you have both Osx and Win7 at the same time. Even cooler is that i like Gimp for Mac so i edit my images for C2 projects in Osx and then just drag them over to my other screen (i have 1 extra monitor) and baamm =)

Here is how it looks (the macbook pro isn't connected in any way)
