Well, I don't mind a post if it's clever, or 5 star (trivialise the other raters). Just no flaming. We're better than that, guys 8)

It's not like that - while yes, Construct is open source and MMF costs money, these are facts - you present them as a strong opinion (ie. nothing can possibly be better than Construct, etc). This is not realistic. MMF is mature software, so has fewer bugs, and a larger userbase, and a few other things like more plugins - all positive points. I'm flattered by your passion for Construct, but you must keep perspective - remember, I would still advise someone working on a commercial or otherwise important project to use mature software, be it MMF, GameMaker, or waiting until 1.0 comes around. Until then, Construct still might nuke your file or make it 3.2 gigabytes, heh.

So the point is, while I'm not asking to control your activities on the internet, I'm urging everyone to keep a realistic view, don't lose your heads, and hey, it's only an internet rating. Rate it 5 stars since they seem to take it so seriously ;)

I am such a Scirra fanboy, despite never having tried other similar products. The developer of Construct is just so intelligent and secure; do not change your ways, Ashley. I will, also, always support Construct for its open licensing.

It was 3,4 ;)


Also, I'm realistic. Construct has bugs, but it's better. It's the example on how a single developer can beat a big company. Construct 1.0 will be the best game-creation program ever.

Until construct 2.

But remember thinking it's better is your opinion, not fact, so it won't help our or anybody's cause to go announcing it, especially in sensitive places where you know it will provoke reaction. Do you see my point?

Can't argue with free, although I think I would still prefer Construct if they were the same price.

Ashley, open your eyes. Construct will stomp Clickteam's tools, you've made an awesome program! It's not an opinion, it's a fact! I can see you in the future becoming one of the best developers ever. You have great potentiality, Construct has too. It's a fact, it's not an opinion ;)

Despite being generally peaceful in demeanor, I am EXTREMELY disturbed by the frequent argument "Construct copied MMF2, so it's okay to copy programs made in Construct!!" If I release a program using Construct, then some idiot copies me because "it's okay, Construct copied our program anyway," I am going to wring their little neck.
