Highly frustrated

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Jan 11, 2012 7:28 pm

@Weishaupt: Arima's words are very wise. Frustration comes with the software development territory. We welcome the frustrating challenges for their intellectual stimulation and for the motivation they provide to develop better software.

Let your frustration drive you to isolate this bug and then be able to say for certain whether it's in your code or in the Construct 2 engine. Until you do that, it's premature (and yes, unreasonable) to ask the Scirra developers to help in your hunt.

Use the excellent debugging advice that Ashley and Arima have given you. Effective debugging strategies are a vital part of the toolbox of any software developer.

Happy hunting!Velojet2012-01-11 19:33:35

Yeah, I am just trying to be a nice guy and not someone who's into bashing.

@Weishaupt: You are indeed a nice guy and you are conducting a very civil and tactful conversation. @Metal_X definitely doesn't speak for me.

Agreed.
Consider Metal_X's post as his own opinion.

I think the main problem here is it's hard to communicate nuanced points of view by text in a forum! It's much easier to convey exactly what you mean in face to face conversation.

I'll just add 2 cents here real quick: Frustration is part of the "Entry barrier". You want to enter just about any business, there's an entry barrier keeping most folks out. There are some (few) who get over the entry barrier and they are the successful ones.

Game development is no exception, it has its entry barrier alright. And frustration is part of that barrier. As someone else said, welcome it, know that it's there to help you (by keeping others out :p ), and just breathe through it (or fly over it) keeping your mind on the end goal. It will pass :). And then it will come again, perhaps in the same form, or perhaps in some other form. And so on...
