Timelines are not built on potential future functionality in a commercial setting - there's no reason this long-proven way to do business should be applied any differently to Construct.


That's another good point.

@Moot Yeah and to be frank the last thing I care about currently is making Browser games.
Does that then mean that I'm not Construct's target audience?
Looking at the Newgrounds competition and Ashleys comments in this thread it does seem that Construct is more of a "fill the void Flash left" and "one day all games will be played in a browser" movement rather than to be a game engine for the desktop / native phones etc.
That might all be correct "someday".

Anyway I'm still here looking at where it's going but I'm not going to lie, I'm also very keenly checking out Fusion 3 that seemed to have fixed most issues people had with mmf2 and fusion 2.5. I.e it's a complete re-write.

I really love Construct, the quickness of getting something up and running, the cool behaviors, the excellent event system but I need to look at where I eventually want to publish too and if the games I make is in the scope of Construct.

I appreciate all the benefits Chrome / html5 / Webgl brings too but it doesn't help we champion a technology and also rent the privilege to do so.

I guess color me cautiously optimistic at this point in time.

....thinking about this some more and to try sound less cynical about the performance issues.
The opposite is obviously also true.
If there are major breakthroughs from Chrome et al (Khronos group) with HTML5 and WebGL2, etc then we reap the benefits.

The straw that broke the camels back was him falsely accusing me in public of attempting to manipulate other forum members into driving him off the website. My decision to perm ban him was concreted by the revolting personal and threatening emails he sent us afterwards.

This thread has run it's course as it's going OT and the OP is no longer here so I'm going to lock it up. Understand there are some side topics being discussed in here, if you want to continue them feel free to start a new thread.
