CC/C2 discussion

New releases and general discussions.

Since we are on the topic of CC/C2.. :-)

There have been some tragic bugs in big games, see this awesome game if you haven't played it before:
http://www.scirra.com/forum/phenomenon-32_topic39957_page1.html

I feel terrible for the author because you could be playing for hours and then just have your game hose on you. That being said it is still worth a play through. There have been some great games made with CC and who knows we will probably see a few more great ones to come. Probably wont see many huge games though.

Now I want to dig up all the old games...especially some of the Russian ones (remember Mary Jane). ;-)

I'm sorry if this goes to a completely wrong thread.. But I just read this whole thread through and i think it's okay to ask for your opinions in this thread..

So I've made several games with MMF2 in the past. Now I really feel like I wanna get back into making games. And this time maybe even try to sell some.

I've always used low res pixel graphics for my projects (and I want them to look as nice as possible in full screen or 2x/3x scaling), and want to make the game mechanics work precisely as I need them to.

Of course it would be nice to have some of my smaller projects to be played just in the browser for easy access.. But if I'd ever do something bigger I'd want it to work on desktop without the browser or black borders or anything.. And I'd probably try to sell my stuff in Steam.

Also my projects tend to have tons of events..

So for someone like me, what would be the best bet? Would it be madness to stick with MMF2?

MMF2, Construct Classic or Construct 2 (or even Game Maker)? ..And why?

@Salevits - Construct 2 can export desktop apps for Windows, Mac and Linux. Why not try C2?

I have to admit, this thread gave me a much better impression of C2 than I had before.

However, I still think that the Personal Edition is overpriced.

+1 for this. 99 Euro a a little too much. Maybe something like 50 Euro will be very fair and good price for everyone.

It's a lot cheaper than a lot of alternatives, and it's a one-time price - not a subscription, like some other alternatives. Considering some dev software can end up in the thousands of dollars, I don't think it's too much at all.

There aren't many ways to enforce that even if it did make sense. Personally I think C2 is dirt cheap for what it is, especially during the early adopter period which lasted for mooonths. If not, well, wait until a competition I guess, licenses are given out all the time. If not, well, suck it up and spend a little money XD GM is charging like $150 just for a single exporter and I hear they're buggy as ever.Tokinsom2013-02-22 14:37:06

I can't believe some of the above...with the free version,You get a fully functional game development tool.....For free!!....

And the personal licence allows you to earn 5000,if you want it for commercial use....that is a steal...

Is the fact that you think the full version is too expensive,that feature wise,there is not enough difference, between the personal and free version maybe?...

If so that makes me wonder if the free version is over featured for the price....    Pixel perfick2013-02-22 22:02:10

With exporter to PC and with full features - $39.99 (this is the old version 8.1). With it you can make masterpriece games if you have the skills of course.

The newly Studio Standart version with exporters to Mac and PC - $49.99.

The Professional version which have half of the available exports remaining is 99.99$.

The Master version with all exporters is 499.99$ which is cheaper than buying Studio Standart + all the exporters or Professional + the exporters.

If you talk about the exporters alone - yes they're expensive from 99.99$ to 199.99$. That's why there exists Professional and Master editions.RacerBG2013-02-23 10:05:55
