Multi touch for android?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Does C2 support multi-touch on Android?
I want to create character that will fire, and walk about, using virtual joystick and buttons.

Does anyone have good examples?

thanks

It's not a problem with Construct 2, it's just that the Android browser does not support multitouch. So there's no way to work around it.

We're waiting for Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) which should be out very soon and properly supports multitouch. Not only that but it's a lot faster too, with a hardware accelerated canvas.

Cool thumbstick example.
Hopefully, someone with android 4 can confirm the multitouch functionality. My project will rely on this being possible.

I hate the bump a REALLY old thread.

Can someone give us an update on the current state of multitouch in Android?

I'm beginning to wonder if my simultaneous touch issue is more of an Android issue.

For those curious about my issue, try this on a mobile Android device and tell me if the second touch is ever correctly assigned a Touch ID: TestExcal2013-04-18 02:07:05
