Some Questions about C2

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Jan 21, 2012 11:01 am

Im interested in buying construct 2, but i have few questions:

Can Construct 2 save games as swf?
Can construct 2 be put up on websites like miniclip and armour-games, or Mochiames or any other similar site?
I have heard that construct classic has more addons and is more developed, can construct classic still make better quality games?
Is there any way in construct classic to place links on game so when player clicks those links, the website of publisher opens, preffereably in a new tab or window?

thank you for your opinion,
cheers

C2 will probably never export swf, but I could be wrong

C2 currently exports in HTML5, a platform that is becoming more and more important, and soon will be as popular as flash. I believe all these websites will be accepting HTML5 games sooner or latter (I know Krongregate does already)

CC is better to make windows games, and bigger projects. Its more advanced than C2, but has a lot of bugs (CC might crash easily, so you should save your project often)

No, just HTML5. HTML5 is going to replace Flash, it's just a matter of time.

Not all Flash sites support HTML5 yet, but some do like Kongregate. Given HTML5 is going to replace Flash, this is probably also just a matter of time.

Construct Classic is very buggy, we designed Construct 2 to replace it and fix its shortcomings, so I'd recommend you use Construct 2 instead.Ashley2012-01-21 16:50:20

@Ashley - it looks like Kongregate's support for HTML5 is official now. Does that mean we will get a plugin coming? I would surrender myself as slave for Scirra forever if that be true... Well perhaps just tell all my friends you C2 is awesome... Wait, I've already done that O_o

Anyway, a kongregate plugin which lets us integrate with their API and export in a format for them would be INSANELY useful.

Awesome! So @Ashley just to clarify, will we be able to officially integrate their statistics, achievement, etc. API's while being able to export into a convenient format?
Many thanks, looking forward to this very much!
