Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hi all,

Just to keep you posted. Progress has been slow lately because my laptop failed. It's been in for repair for the past few weeks, and I just found out it's "beyond economical repair". Great! So I'm buying a new one, which inevitably will be another week or two before it's arrived and I have it all set up.

On top of that, I'm coming up to my last few weeks as an undergrad, so there's going to be another crunch to get some work done!

I should have some more time to focus on things here in June. I should be posting both a new C2 build and new 0.x build in the next couple of weeks as well. Watch this space!

I've had the same problem last week, my PC died on me... :lol:
That's sad!

Other than that, great news!!
I've been using Construct as a level editor for my iphone game, and I swear I'll donate you guys some money if things go well! :D :D

If you buy a laptop from ebuyer or overclockers they do next day delivery.

It's surprisingly difficult to find laptops which (all of which are requirements for me):
- have 4gb RAM
- have 17" screen
- DON'T have Intel graphics chipsets. ATI or nVidia do a much better job - I've always found Intel graphics to be glitchy or buggy, which just won't do for developing DirectX/OpenGL stuff.
I've found Dabs do a Toshiba Satellite Pro L670 which fits the bill - on other sites (even Toshiba Direct) they all either have 2GB RAM, 15" screens or Intel graphics...

That is very unfortunate. I hope you find something that works for you in short order!

It's a tricky time to buy a new laptop with a decent IGP, though. AMD's Llano is fast approaching.
