C3 plugins backwards compatibility question.

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

@Ashley

The C3 website says that it will be backwards compatible with C2. Does this extend to 3rd party plugins?

There are a couple of .js libs that i'd like to make as plugins but i'm not sure if it's worth the cost and effort of development if they won't work or have to be rewritten.

Can you please clarify, thanks.

The C3 editor is being rewritten, and accordingly the edittime.js script will need to be changed. (This part was not well designed anyway and I think everyone would agree having more capabilities and a clearer API there would be useful.) However the runtime side should still work unmodified.

So does this mean that if you attempted to load a .capx in C3 with a C2 3rd party plugin that it would not load, or it would load but you wouldn't be able to edit the events?
