Hi Guys,

Is it possible to import a Multimedia Fusion application into Construct?

Hi, welcome to the forums.

Why would it be..? Other applications have proprietary file formats which are nearly impossible to reverse engineer. You'll have to remake anything you've made in anything else.

Well for one thing, I understood that the two programs were related somehow.

Many documents are convertible from one format to another.

Thank you for your timely reply, I do dislike it though when people answer a question with a question.

Uh, no. Construct might share some broad concepts with MMF2, and some of the Construct devs have worked with MMF2, but otherwise it's got nothing to do with it. Expecting Construct to accept MMF2 datafiles is a bit like expecting Microsoft Word to open Blender files.

As others have said, there's no relation in the software; we are looking to change our file format to a more open and readable .xml format for Construct 2, but until then it's unfeasable that there could be any co-mingling in file formats between other programs.

on a happier note, construct is by far the quickest and easiest of these game makers to use, and the forums here always get quick responses, so remaking something from scratch will be as painless as possible. read the wiki and tutorials and post questions if you run into any bumps

Just going to pitch in that it's probably not technically possible anyway, since MMF has features Construct lacks and vice versa. But yeah... welcome to the forums ;)
