Construct2 Doesn't Support Multitouch?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Sep 24, 2011 1:53 pm

Hi,

I'm new with construct2. I'm trying to make games for iOS and Android OS. I'm using Tap object to make things work on mobile phone. But I realize that construct2 doesn't seems to support multitouch. Am I right? or there's a way to make it happen? or it's still on development for it's next release?

Sorry for my bad english,

Thanks in advance

Multitouch is not well supported atm and will be enhanced later in future releases.

The 'On object touched' and 'Is touching object' conditions do support multitouch, so you can make game controls using sprites and it will work well. However, the Android browser doesn't support multitouch! It should work fine on iOS, but Android probably won't work until the 'Ice Cream Sandwich' update, which is due some time in October I think.

@maxp010 - I don't understand what you are asking... you would use the Touch object to do that!

@maxp010 - actually I said 'On object touched' and 'Is touching object' do support multitouch, they always have! The problem in this thread was that the Android 2.x browser itself does not support multitouch. It should be working fine on Android 4+ and iOS though.
