Clickteam Fusion and Install Creator Humble Bundle

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Sep 27, 2016 9:15 pm

We had a Clickteam Fusion and Construct 2 comparison thread a while ago, and for those who would like to compare the two, but lacked the financial resources (or , what better chance than getting Fusion with the newest Humble Bundle deal.

I still very much prefer Construct 2, though. I feel Fusion is targeting a somewhat different market. But it is certainly nice to have access to both tools - especially when you work on a Mac as well as Windows (since Fusion seems to work on Mac now).

And a free copy of Install Creator is actually quite handy as well.

*Edit* after investigation, this is the standard edition of Fusion: meaning a restricted distribution licence (the standard version requires that you include a "made with Fusion" logo in your work).

Worth it for the Install Creator alone for sure.

I got it and took a look at Fusion 2.5 but I haven't used Clickteam tools since 2009 (when I found out about Construct Classic haha) and everything feels extremely outdated.. Still it's a great tool and does a lot of things C2 can't do very well or at all (like pixel-by-pixel collision for instance).

I agree, the GUI looks and feels somewhat outdated. Last time I used Multimedia Fusion was over 12 years ago - not that much has changed.

Still, install creator is a nice bonus.

Looks like a good deal! I'll probably pick up the bundle for Environment Station Alpha and Oniken. I considered picking up the Game Maker bundle last time but it seemed like a waste for me, especially when none of the games interested me. I've pretty much chosen C2 as my number one main squeeze for game development, regardless if its the best choice or not. It was a monetary decision for me since it seemed like the best deal. It seemed easiest to use compared to all game maker programs too but that's probably subjective.

I like these game design bundles Humble Bundle is doing though. I've picked up products like sprite lamp, pro motion and spriter through previous bundles. Also got a 1 year trial to Stencyl but never used it. I hope they put out other bundles in the future with great game dev software licenses. That's what I really want.

So this "Install Creator". Would it be useful for anyone using C2?

I saw this sometime time ago. Maybe it's useful since Install Creator is something of interest? http://installforge.net/download/#

I think I might give this a try.

At least Clickteam has native mobile exporting options for their software which Construct 2 lacks.

If you want a free install creator Construct Classic would actually work pretty good for that.
It has functions for accessing the registry, as well as file, and path expressions.

Holy Macaroni :o They've added the Android Exporter and Developer Upgrade at the 15$ tier. You simply can't go wrong with this bundle now.

As an owner of C2 business edition and (now) Fusion 2.5 Developer (thanks Humble Bundle!) I think it's worth having both.

C2 is incredibly fast to work in (thanks to the amazing editor), but Fusion has native export (and so is incredibly fast at export, especially for lower end computers and mobile (iOS and Android included now)).

Like others are saying Fusion's interface is pretty much the same as all their old products that I used in my childhood: Klik'N'Play, The Games Factory, Multimedia Fusion... lol, but at least they added an "Event List" view to Fusion :o

I know some people are saying they like how Fusion has native exports, but my fairly large C2 project runs pretty great on lower end desktops. Not sure about mobile though, maybe that's a big difference.

Either way, I bought the bundle, and will probably learn a bit more about Fusion, but as of right now I just like C2's editor and interface so much more. Adjusting collisions, editing levels, handling layers just seems so much more intuitive to me. All subjective stuff though.

The install creator alone is why I jumped on that deal, it looks fantastic.
