oh!my mac mini 2011,run chrome latest(版本 57.0.2987.110 (64-bit)),and open flag:webGL
but when I try to lunch C3 anyway...it show ...should I buy a new mac?! help!

>>Oops! WebGL is not supported.

WebGL provides high-performance graphics for web apps. Construct 3 needs WebGL support to run, but this browser does not appear to support WebGL.

Try installing any available system updates, and check for an update for your graphics driver. Alternatively if you have access to a newer device try using that.

I understand your point entirely, but there was a tradeoff here, supporting organisations/users with older browsers, or reduced development time and easier maintenance. Historically we've always gone for #2.



@Tom, I understand what you are going for, but I am not asking for you to support older versions, but simply let the user decide to try it out.

Give it this scenario:

I am a corp that uses managed versions.
I am 1 week out from my delivery window.
A new version of chrome is updated, C3 "forces" you to run on it.
I miss my deadline.

This is one of the inherent risk of using a browser based IDE, they update and can update often. I use to pitch C2 to some companies, but C3 I simply cannot pitch with the forcing of using the latest Chrome version. Updating your OS to the latest and greatest, versus your browser are two different worlds. Something running in the browser should not be locked down like that.

Maybe my understanding is off, but you have not corrected my question. Whether or not the absolutely latest version is required, or if this is just a beta thing. By your responses, it sounds like to me, that C3 will always require the latest version of chrome.

If that is the case, C3 seems kind of...short-sighted. Let me explain what I mean. You are basically saying, C3 is only for the little guys. You have no intention of targeting big corporations, with lots of money to proper development. It gives C3 a bit of a toy-ish feel, as in it is not meant for any serious project. To ignore the managed version control of Chrome, really surprises me.

That is my 2 cents on it. As mentioned, maybe I am misunderstanding you, but this is how I feel about it and my feedback on it.

Ah got you now. We don't see why Construct 3 wouldn't work in all future versions of Chrome - onwards from 57. Also, offline desktop builds will solve the issue you're talking about I believe.

That is great news. Thank you for the clarification :)

I would also argue that an organisation not allowing updates to browser is a pretty backwards security policy. Unfortunately you'll have to wait for them to allow updates.


You'd be making an unrealistic argument. Larger companies, especially those with security concerns, are typically at least a few versions behind. Every update to every piece of software is vetted by internal IT teams at larger companies and just about every school I've ever worked at or been in. I've worked at places that were many versions behind with Adobe's CC suite for this reason, and while it's obvious not many people are going to hack a computer through Photoshop, it's still a concern for places with organization-wide IT policies.

Chrome also has a business and education versions that have more security features and limits users from changing settings and destroying history.

Those are not updated very often so something to consider if you plan on using C3 in one of those versions.

Grids are weeks old for public use - it's odd to think that this beta literally couldn't have happened even a month earlier, as the support for C3 wouldn't have existed without dev flags or Canary. Cutting edge indeed.

At my job we still have to go through a SWOT to see if we can use flexbox...
