Hi,

I have a little question: I want to purchase a personal license and I saw an attractive offer in Steam at half the price (until July, 22). Is there any problem or limitation if I buy Construct 2 through Steam?

There is some limitation. You have to have Steam open to run it. You can't run multiple instances. And all the other Steam limitations. Not too bad, but something to keep in mind.

You also can't open files from explorer. So you can't navigate to doc/projects/myproject.capx
It won't open an instance of C2.

@DUTOIT o.O Really?

Not that I need to worry about it, but that would be a pretty big issue for me. Or, at least, a pretty big inconvenience. Scirra should definitely try to work out that one with Valve.

Thank you for your answers. I think I'll get the Steam version despite all. 100 is too much for me at this moment... (49 sounds better).

I have a colleague at work who's been deliberating since the Steam sale began. He's also decided to settle for the Steam version, despite its restrictions. I really do think that the price justifies it, so you've made a good decision.

@GeometriX,

Yip, really - lol.
I have been hacking away to create a temp fix.
Problem is that you can't associate .capx and caproj files with the steam version of C2. Because steam doesn't have a valid .exe file only a url and the exe file that is in the steam apps folder opens the free version download.

I have been hacking away with a fix - create a .bat file that opens an instance of C2, but can't get the file to load.
Notepad: paste
"%~dp0\steam.exe" -applaunch 227980 /fxsload=\"%1\"
save as c2.bat in steam.exe folder
Associate c2.bat with .capx and .caproj files.
But this only opens c2 not the file - my smarts are not strong with this one.

Oh, well, I'll have to do it the old way of open file via C2

Sorry OP I can't answer your question, but rather that start a new thread I think my question will fit in with yours and it'll be something you would like to also know the answer to.

So, will the steam version keep up with the scirra version when it comes to updates?

There is a thread on the steam forum about how to update with the beta releases. It's pinned.
