Purchasing this week, steam version or regular?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

I read somewhere in a thread that someone was saying they couldn't load .capx's from this forum because they had the steam version. Is that still a limitation or has it been fixed.

I've been using the steam free version right now and I'm glad I saw that post because now I'm planning on getting the non steam version but figured I'd ask here first just to make sure as the steam version makes it easier to get going.

Best go regular imo.

How does the steam version make things easier btw?

I did a search and I'm definitely going with regular. I just thought the auto updates were convenient.

C2 can be set to do a regular check for updates.

I agree - you should go Regular :)

Regular.

No idea why would anyone like to buy any application from steam.

Don't use steam. Seen to many issues with it over the past year. And as said before, it will auto update either way.

Go with regular: less issues, offline installation/activation, less resource eating (doesn't have to run Steam in the background), etc..

Steam is great. But not for C2.

Regular.
Don't lose your work. Backup your game with Dropbox.
