Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

You make a good point about comparison, would anyone be able to come up with a good benchmarking test for GM, MMF and Construct? It would be great to test them all side by side.

[quote="Mipey":1xv6yjqm]so I decided to import them directly into the .capx. I open the file with 7-zip file manager, dump the whole lot of images (tile-1.png to tile-256.png)[/quote:1xv6yjqm]
The texture filenames must match exactly the object name, and the - character is not allowed in object names, so the editor is probably removing the - character then getting confused when it can't find the file any more. If your object is called tile-256 the expression parser will look for a system expression 'tile' and try to subtract 256 from it!

As for comparisons to other products, I've kind of run out of things to say. As we said before, if you really prefer a competitor's product, you're welcome to use their product - you're not required to purchase Construct 2! I think these comparisons are really pointless though - all software has advantages and disadvantages both ways round, so no one program is entirely superior to another. Making comparisons is just firing back an endless series of anecdotes depending on what features are important to you. I'm sure, for example, a GM user could turn up and give a long, comprehensive post about why GM is better than everything else. That's their point of view, but it doesn't really help anything, and despite their point of view, other competitors still run a successful business, so even though they may think it, the market proves GM is not entirely superior to everything else (otherwise they'd put all competitors out of business).

So I don't want to lock this thread, because it's actually about the Construct 2 release 31, but I think the comparisons and debate over competitors should stop - it's not going to go anywhere, and it's entirely personal preference, and everyone has a personal preference.

I'm getting a pretty show-stopping bug here. I can't add an action. When I try to add an action in the event sheet, the focus goes off the main window as if the 'add event' window is open, yet nothing appears. I have to hit ESC, which I'm assuming closes the invisible 'add event' window. I'd put it on the bug tracker, but for some strange reason SourceForge is blocked from my college's internet. Anyone else getting this?

I'm hesitant to buy something that wasn't completed within 2 years LAST TIME around. I'm also worried about there being important bugs not taken care of for 6+ months at a time this time around.

And considering version 1 is not yet complete...

I really need a reason to buy this - the only thing lacking is the credibility that it will actually be a product worth buying in the future - which because of the bugs in last version, i would not have purchased it.

And with that being said I don't wish to rip on the product at all, I'm obviously a construct supporter (and spent $100+ on making a community site for it a while back).

Remember 0.x was developed by part time inexperienced volunteers, and it still went pretty far just on that. We're proposing to develop C2 fulltime and team members now have industry experience.

Despite the fact we're confident C2 will be a substantial improvement in both development time and stability over 0.x, if you still have doubts, by all means just wait and see how it develops - although you might miss out on the early adopter licenses, which should be an excellent deal.
