Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Apr 24, 2012 9:22 pm

Greetings,

Newbie here with a general question for the community. I've searched dozens of threads and I've read all sorts of conflicting data and opinions.

I've created a simple game, nothing but basic platform behavior and no more than 5 (gif) images, and yet after I export with phone gap builder, and boot it up on my Android device, my app is depressingly slow, to an unplayable degree. It starts, and immediately slows down.

Is there a simple solution? Are there alternatives to phone gap that don't cost an a small fortune?

I know... it is disheartening. HTML5 is just such a young technology. Improvements are being made, albeit slowly.

My experience went as such,

Downloaded Construct 2, loved it, saw phone gap advertised as doing the trick, and assumed the situation was better than it actually is.

Kind of a bummer.

OrdonianKing Have you seen this thread yet?

Furries

Furries was made by ranma. Try this game out once it runs perfect. It was made with C2, and PhoneGap. Then read through the whole thread ranma gives you all the information you need to get top performance using C2, and PhoneGap.

Or you could always try using appMobi.

Your welcome OrdonianKing :)

I have tried all of the known HTML5 game engines out there, and Construct 2 is by far the most advanced, user friendly one on the market.

You can't go wrong with Construct 2 :D

Edit: No it's not useless :) But you can do more with the Eclipse IDE, and phonegap.Wink2012-04-24 23:33:36
