Steam Sale?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Thinking about it, I'm pretty much always online when I use c2 anyway as that allows me to keep previewing projects on various other devices (such as ipad, and whatnot). So even if steam was chugging away in the background I'm not sure if it'd make much of a difference. Then again, I haven't used Steam very much so maybe I'm missing something?

I don't want to have steam running in the background as it is useless to have when using any sort of tools like RPG Maker or C2, and has always been a nuisance for me, so I was also wondering if I could purchase a license theough steam and then just use the one directly from Scirra.

I must be odd in that Steam is almost always running on my machine. Just is.

@klkitchens nah, it's not odd. But with me, I always trim down as many unnecessary processes as possible on my machines. It's a bit compulsive, I know, but on my old Win XP laptop, I got it down to around 16 processes running, on average, and it's still going strong after 8 years, a faulty fan, and an obnoxious 3.1 GHz single-core processor. XD

But seriously though, with the amazing sales Steam puts up for developer tools, I really wanna know if I can use my Steam C2 licensed for a regular C2. Or, God forbid, I crack the original version to use my Steam license. >_> <_< o_o

Some people don't like it running and don't play games or don't talk to people through Steam, it happens.

However it doesn't use much for background processes and it's use is for convenience of access.

There are also valid reasons to use the Scirra version too, as you get more control in the installation.

LOL... I'm running a 16GB laptop with three monitors, a VMWare machine with 8GB allocated, Steam and about 1,000,000 other processes daily. :)
