How many Construct2 Developers in the USA

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Apr 11, 2012 12:10 am

Just to address some of the concerns in this thread:

- I know the US requirement is annoying, but it's just the way it is. Often US employees for legal reasons or others are tasked to do business only with others in the US. It may also be possible that they can help you out getting started with Windows Phone development, but on the condition that you're in the US. I agree they're missing out big time: US visitors are a minority of our overall traffic, so presumably also a minority of overall C2 developers. However, it's not our battle to fight, so for the time being I'm afraid this opportunity depends on where you live. On the other hand if you are a US citizen it may be an interesting opportunity for you.

- I know IE doesn't support WebGL, but currently we have disabled WebGL on all mobile devices in the C2 engine because our testing has shown it's either slower on mobile or causes bugs and crashes. It's still a work-in-progress on mobile really. So you're not losing any performance - no other mobiles are using WebGL.

IE for mobile is also the only mobile browser I'm aware of with a GPU accelerated canvas 2D natively in the browser. So you may get pretty good performance anyway.

Hello Jonny. I am based in the US and I have a huge interest to get Construct2 Games onto Win7 phone.

I think this would be a huge step forward not just for Construct2, but also for Windows 7. I personally did not have a problem with XNA, and actually liked it, but the visual element that Construct gives is just a huge leg up over just lines of code.


And to everyone who is frustrated about the US segregation, it is highly unlikely that it is Jonny's call on the issue. If anything at least be happy that Microsoft took notice and is actively trying to expand your potential audience. Good things come with time.

I am in the US, and would be interested if you can manage to get phones to run HTML5 games at a reasonable level. Unfortunately, this has proved to be very difficult.

[QUOTE=Joannesalfa] Does it work for some people who have green card?[/QUOTE] It doesn't say that you must be an american.
Only your geographic location matters, it seems.

I'm in the US, a Baltimore City dweller. I'd be interested, however I'm targetting Phonegap/Android first because that's the hardware I already have available and it already works.
