[quote="MrMiller":3hkzi50h]Has that been confirmed? I haven't kept up on everything going on with it, but if that's true that's a program killer. I can see it in addition to exe's, but web-only? I'd hate to have to switch back to MMF2, because, well, MMF2's event system sucks, but web-only would make me go bye-bye. I'd gladly pay for it if it's an advanced continuation of the original Construct but I don't know about the web-based thing. The whole concept with the original is just too good to throw away and go into a different direction now.[/quote:3hkzi50h]
[quote="greyspot":3hkzi50h]I didn't mean that it wouldn't eventually have an exe export plugin, but that the focus has shifted away from desktop applications to be more web based. I think it should be the other way around, but that's just my personal opinion. I just hate that executables is now an afterthought, and now all of the plugins and examples that have been made by the community for Construct are effectively trash, seeing as 0.X won't be getting a whole lot of attention any more.
Kind of disappointed when I read the article for the 2.0 release on the direction the Construct Team is going with the program[/quote:3hkzi50h]
That just about sums up my feelings on it.
It's all about the moolah!
They should have included .exe and web export from the start, and charged a price for it, and other exporters would be extra, much like Unity uses (my time is spent between Unity and Eclipse/Java almost exclusively these days.)
I still love Construct 0.x, and have no plans to abandon my main Construct project, so by the time I've finished all these projects, maybe Construct 2 will have caught up with Construct in ability, and a fully-featured .exe exporter will be available at a decent price.
I've got more than enough to be getting on with for most of this year, lol.
Oh yeah, back on topic;
Sounds great Arsonide.
If you need someone to do any testing, I'll be glad to help out.
Looking forward to what you come up with.
