Glad to hear you got it (and more importantly agreed with me!) I posted on their forum about the no-upgrade policy and the rude manner they presented it.

Monogame is $995 per platform (iOS/Android), but I can code in my native C#/.Net which is why I will use it for larger projects.

For a good tutorial, watch this series: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dqH3pD2KGo

He goes from nothing to a game in about an hour and explains along the way.

[QUOTE=DUTOIT]
All in all, very happy with this software. Needs more example(s), tutorials as I am one of those that like learn by seeing things in action. Hope to add some in the near future myself. Software is only as strong the community behind it.[/QUOTE]

C2 comes with 84 examples in the examples folder, and there lots of tutorials in the tutorial section. What more could you possibly want?

Loading the templates and amending them is a great way of learning C2.

Have fun :)
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

That is a like walking around in a kids sandpit, I'm thinking about taking a stroll around the beach

Seriously, its a start, and only a fraction if you think about the possibilities of c2. No game/app/other is alike and we each require out the box thinking examples to aid us in our individual creations. Not everyone is building platform, shooter type games. Not everyone is building games for that matter. But the nuts and bolts required can only be found by walking down the road in multiple pairs of shoes. Many various examples if you will.

There are multiple ways to do the same thing not just one right way.
But, I agree, 84 examples and the tuts I have gone through are top notch stuff. Seriously, good nuts and bolts.
@klkitchens,
Thanks for the youtube link(s) I can't believe I missed that channel. DUTOIT2013-07-18 20:40:47

I also dislike going through steam, specially after i got game maker studio. So i didn't get it and am waiting for a sale here, directly from scirra instead.

I got mine via steam, and to be honest, I should have just brought it here. Steam is not geared towards applications.

I knew about steam not being able to open multiple instances of c2.
I knew about the file association glitch.

I figured for the discount price I could semi tolerate it until it was fixed.

BUT, it just isn't worth it - period. Gonna, try to make $5000 from this steam version so that I can buy the business version here.

@DUTOIT

For me it's just not that bad. I have my desktop shorcut, I don't need multiple instances of c2 at once and I can just open c2 projects from c2. I would have bought it here otherwise if it wasn't because of the discount, but I must say I'm really happy with the purchase.

Don't get me wrong - I am happy with C2, my issue is that I work on multiple monitors, so an instance of "mygame version1" on monitor one, and "mygame version2" on monitor 2 is what multiple instances are all about.

Oh, I see. It would be great if they could add that feature eventually.
