If you want to get extremely technical, you can write your own plugins for Construct. Otherwise, I've run into very little that I can't accomplish with the event system. It exports to standalone .exe via node webkit and works wonderfully to me. And C2 can more than handle large games. My RPG is quite substantial, but there are plenty of larger games with C2.

@lilvee1989 , I am by no means a game creator/developer, I am interested in interactive narrations and I needed a tool to help me do that for my graduate project. I found C2 almost half a year before graduation and immediately understood and appreciated the difference in it's event based system workflow. Before that I was looking in to Flash, Cryengine, Unity and Processing but to do even a trivial task such as creating a button, is way too difficult with those tools.
As a training project I made a game (titled "Hellrain") which is something like space invaders but with falling meteors. After that I moved to my graduate project (titled "memories") which is more like an artistic narration than an actual game. I made all the assets (art, music, sounds, programing) in just a few months time. I have to point out how terrible I am at coding and how impossible this endeavor would have being if not for C2!!!

You can play those projects, if you wish, and see what this tool enabled me to create, having no coding skills whatsoever.

It's a choice and personal preference. Because I evaluate based on my set of skill and compatibility, I know I'll do better in C2 than gamemaker. It's like making a choice between a Ferrari and a Lamborghini.

This statement might not apply to everybody else, the manual itself is the selling point for me. It's like going shopping electronic stuff, I have the tendency to look for manual, well that's just who I am.

Ashley has added some functionalities (I've been using C2 a while) that do what I needed, and there are one or two plugins I use as well.

Just to add up from my previous post. Not trying to defame or anything, just honest insight.

I've been holding this onto myself for quite a while, I think I just want to get this out of my head and share some experience.

The community in GameMaker itself is a bit unhelpful and easy to cut off people, this maybe ok if it is from normal user, but from a moderator is a no-no. They have a tendency to close thread prematurely even though the discussion is legit. If you see this link, which one of the many threads that is yet to blossom, being closed because of a moderator personal opinion, that is seriously bad. Threads should be given chances to grow like here in scirra.

In scirra forum, this never happen, there a lot of stupid thread here but in the end somebody always comes in and giving meaningful response, making the thread seems more meaningful and educational. In gamemaker, it's a no. This thread of yours is a no-no over there, because you "won't give benefit to the community as a whole" lol.

I don't really know what the reputation supposed to do, but i think it is at least a spambot countermeasure. There are a lot of ways of increasing the reputation, which you can read from each badge description, even just from downloading new version increase your reputation. I never pay attention to reputation and badges, it just simply grow itself depends on your activity in forum.
