Construct Classic Code

For questions about using Classic.

I am learning programming at the moment so I think Construct classic's source code would be very helpful. Where is it?

You can download a copy from SourceForge I believe: http://sourceforge.net/p/construct/code/HEAD/tree/

Edit: You will need a paid copy of PROFUI to compile it though I think, unless you find a way to port to some other User Interface that's open source too: http://www.prof-uis.com/

Why do I need the paid version?
p.s that sourceforge does not allow me to download it.

You'll need SVN to download the source code to your PC from the live server, or (since it's not been updated in a while anyway), you can download the tarball: http://sourceforge.net/p/construct/code/HEAD/tarball

As for purchasing ProfUI, the reason is that Scirra used that software library to handle all the interface for the editor, and it's a proprietary and integral part of the source code that you would need to have a copy of in order to compile the project. I do not know which version is used in Construct Classic, but some other users here might know.

Edit: I also think this was coded in Visual Studio 2008, so you'd want to get a copy of that too (Express might work, I'm not sure as I have only compiled stuff from the Construct Classic Plugin SDK before).

I wouldn't really recommend Classic as a learning example - a lot of the code is a terrible mess of things you really don't want to do.
