construct 2 steam worst purchase of my life

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Dec 28, 2013 12:52 pm

the person who commented immediately after and a user who ha bought from steam or informed that he could go to this site to expose her discomfort
not much or no problem in paying through paypal and open a dispute for the uninitiated paypal protection purchaser in all respects in the next few days I'll get my linters sum of money
what is most shameful and strangely the negative votes were canceled out of steam, it was full of negative bolts in the constructor section 2 steam
and this one thing really unfair and unjust like a scam, people have a right to know what is if you bought
I and other people are spreading rumors affiche money to other poor people are not thrown into a product of poor quality and poorly functioning not that bad

We have not removed any feedback ourselves from the Steam page for Construct 2, and I doubt that Valve have either unless they were cleaning up entire spam/bot/abusive user accounts. Occasionally, users remove their own posts after we help them to resolve any issues they were having.

First, the software is called Construct 2, not Constructor 2. That's a game.

Second, yeah, don't buy on Steam. It's bad. I love construct, but I voted negative against it since it's a really bad "version", with less flexibility.

Also, the forums are segmented. You guys have forums for the Free, Personal and Business licenses. That's really bad.

I don't know what you guys did, but the licenses should have been handed as DLC, not as individual apps.

Hi! I bought it on Steam and had no crashes so far (and I have a 6 year old messy PC with a full HD). I like the autoupdates (even for beta) very much and it was 50% cheaper to get the Personal edition.

So I recommended it, it's a great piece of software.

I understand if your pissed, but instead of calling it a scam work with people to solve the problem. There are still things you can try and it would help if you post your system specs.

Have you disable steam Overlay?
Tried enabling steam offline mode?
Have you cleaned your system of malware?
are you overclocking your videocard/system?
Is your security software "sandboxing" construct 2 or your video driver??

I have to say it is extremely unlikely you got Steam just for the discount and didn't already have steam. The construct 2 sale isn't really advertised anywhere and is instead one of their generic holiday sales.
I assume you already had a steam account and knew how it worked then were upset when you thought it would be different for Construct.

Any rate Steam isn't bad, I use the steam version no problem, did have it crash once but that was it. Construct does have a really nice feature called "save" which makes a copy of your work for you so crashes are not a big dilemma.

Also Valve has said numerous times they would allow users to back up their content in the event that they go bankrupt, which will not happen for a long time.

So just relax, the problem has to be on your side,check all your drivers not just video card, adjust your firewall, try offline mode in steam, try the free version from this site see if you have same issues.

He said he didn't have steam account, then he didn't. Who are you to say otherwise? And throw a bunch of spices into the mix with your assumptions (bit of an a$$ attack on him don't you think?)
Steam advertises everywhere. And google Construct 2 discount. And word of mouth. And don't forget social - twitter has tons of steam sale and construct 2 steam sale etc and facebook has a bunch etc etc etc etc.

Also, STeam have loads of issues - I've used them for years upon years. They just have some good pro's going for them that outweigh the cons.

I have steam version - it is broken.
I have scirra version - it works like a dream.
I have both on my computer - which means steam is the culprit.

He has every right to be annoyed, frustrated. He purchased a product that isn't working. Your copy works, so you are happy. His doesn't and he is upset. Imagine yours didn't work - you would be annoyed too.

Steam breaks a dozen laws concerning their refund policy - If they trade in your country they have to abide by those laws. Paypal dispute will be easiest for refund, 45 days, and steam have to comply, but you can also have a lawyer educate them about your country laws in regards to refunds. They are quick to issue a refund when educated.
