Construct 2 officially out of beta?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Jan 21, 2012 8:33 am

Is that true? now it can be fully used to make full games? can it make .exe's or offline play yet?

Anyway I've been looking into the store page and I have some questions about it.

So with the standard edition how much games you are allowed to sell? is it once you reached $5000USD you must no longer make your products commercial until you bought the business edition? I don't plan to sell games tough.

Now as for the sound effects, you can only make 12 sound effects, ambient sounds and music for your game? what if it's a large game like a megaman game for example that requires you to use more then 12 SFX/music files in one game? they should be unlimited no? or are those referring to extra resources you get when you buy the product?

Other then that, long live Construct 2, the best 2D game creation program available today.

Construct 2 is continuously updated with more features all the time, there never really is a "beta". It still missing a great many features that were in Construct Classic (can't do exe yet either). It is useable though.alspal2012-01-21 08:55:58

You know, that comparison table should probably be adjusted to make it more clear that the Sounds/BG Music stuff are not limitations (since you also list a number for events, etc).

Me too... on the surface it looks like you are actually limited in the sounds and music you can import.

[QUOTE=LavaWave]Is that true? [out of beta][/QUOTE]
We have always been using an incrementing release number so we don't have clearly defined beta periods, but I guess now the early-adopter deal is over we are now out of beta.

[quote]can it make .exe's or offline play yet?[/quote]
You can't make EXEs, but you can play HTML5 games offline.

[quote]So with the standard edition how much games you are allowed to sell?[/quote]
You can sell as much as you like with the standard edition but as soon as you reach $5000 USD in revenue you must purchase a business license. (But you can use the money you just earned to buy it!)

[quote]I don't plan to sell games tough.[/quote]
Then not a worry, just get the standard license :)

[quote]Now as for the sound effects, you can only make 12 sound effects, ambient sounds and music for your game?[/QUOTE]
These are just how many sound effects you get provided with the bundle - you get some free sound effects, sprite packs, music etc. In all editions of Construct 2 you can use an unlimited number of sound effects, music etc.
