Feature: Save As version (downsave)

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Apr 19, 2013 5:47 am

It's a shore trying to open someone else's file, only to realize they are using the latest beta...

So, feature: a Save As in the Save dialog, to avoid saving as caproj, and then looking for the version file, editing it to something usable, etc etc.
thanks

This often isn't possible, if the project uses a newly added feature that isn't in the older version. And it's very hard for us to be able to tell which features in a project won't port to older versions. So I would prefer to simply not support this in the editor. If you want to take a risk, you can edit the project XML, but I wouldn't recommend it, just use the same version as them.

Best and easiest solution for that would be to ask a member to state what version of C2 is he/she refering to on new post creation.
That way everyone will know if file can be opened in currently using C2 version.
