Need informations concerning the standart edition

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Feb 02, 2012 9:41 pm

Hello, I'm a french new user of Construct 2, so please, excuse me for my english mystakes and my poor knowledge about this wonderful sowtware

So my question is:

A friend and me want to do some games and make money with adds or selling our games. I read that we could use the licence on "as many computer as we like", so it is possible to buy just 1 license, to install it on two computer and to do games, my friend and me ?

I'm not sure, but I think we need two, because I also read that organisations could not use the standart edition to make business games.

Am I wrong ? Thanks for reading

The license is a per user basis, though you CAN register a license in a COMPANY/BUSINESS name, so anyone in that company/business can use the software, but only on one machine per license.

You can read more about how the license for Construct 2 works HERE

Happy hunting :)

I read it yesterday and it's written, I quote :
"Standard license

Once you get a standard license, all the limits are removed. You can use all Construct 2's features and make games as large as you like. You also get extra sound effects, music and sprite packs to help you get started making games!

Individuals

[...]
Individuals can use their license on as many computers as they like, as long as only one person uses it (see Using your license below).

Organisations
Only not-for-profit organisations (like schools, libraries and universities) can use Standard licenses. Businesses and other profit-making businesses are not allowed to use Standard licenses - they must purchase Business licenses.

[...]They are for specific computers, but any number of people can use the license so long as the license is only ever used on that. computer.

So, if it's just one person that use the licence, he can use it on as many computer as he want.
But if it's an organisation, it cannot use the standart licence for business projects and it can just use it on one coputer.

Isn't it ?

We are just 2 persons, so could we install the licence on 2 computers to do business games but under one of us name ? I mean, we are two to make games on two computers but with one licence and the games are posted like made by just one of us ?

A license is either for a single computer or a single person.

If it's for a single computer, anyone can use it, but it can only be used on that machine.

If it's for a single person, you can use it on any computer, but only that person can use it.

If there are two of you and you have two computers, either way you'll need two licenses! I'd recommend going for individual licenses since they tend to be more convenient than limiting it to a single computer. You can get individual business licenses, just make sure it's your personal name on the license and not the organisation name.
