[quote="Jayjay":1o65nwyl]I found Construct because it was on a CD in PC Plus magazine, had a little note saying "Free DVD Game Making, 7 of the best full products for inspired game creation" on the cover. Its funny that it said "full products" because it had Construct in the "collection" (version 0.80).[/quote:1o65nwyl]

What? That's really weird.

Did anyone know they were actually doing this or did they just decide "eh, it's free we can do whatev?"

Hahaha well played Doppel xD

@Jayjay
Construct was on a magazine DVD?? Wow! That's kinda cool... but I bet they didn't link to the site or anything... and yeah, it is kinda weird that they would put "full version" on it since, well... yeah... no need to explain that here.

That didn't matter because I think Construct already has a homepage button inside the program. =)

And I was wrong, just looked at the disc and it was version 0.90 (slightly more stable/new).

Incase anyone wants to find it, its Issue 267 (April 2008)

I just realized exactly how old .80 would be... the first version I ever used was .83 and that was almost a year ago.

I expect "full version" to them means "not a demo with deliberately restricted functionality".

'Course, Construct has its own limitations, but they're because it's not finished (in the "feature-complete" sense). The overwhelming majority out there, unused to an open-source, release-early-and-often model, would call that a "prerelease version".

Would you please stop this stereotypical thinking?

I'm hoping to be using Construct v1.00 in before 2009. Actually it is more probable that we'll see first professional-looking game made in still-beta Construct. I think releasing Cons1 will be a big event for indie games market. At this time I can't see much more advanced, universal yet easy to use editors (maybe Game Maker).

Chill Broo...

That's what us Australians call "Taking the piss out".

Sure there will be plenty of awesome and professional games. That's the whole point... but there are always going to be "those" kind of people... expecting to make Doom 5 using a wizard based program... and I will be here to take the piss out of them.
