Hey all,

Going to buy a personal edition of Construct 2

Its cheaper for me to get it on steam, but I am just curious to if its updated as fast as the stand alone copy?

Thanks

Stand alone is better for workflow, steam sucks because it's annoying to open .capx are required to login steam.

I personally download updates because Scirra has good e-mail system to send every users to let know when new version is out.

Hmmm yeah, even though theres a $12 difference between the steam and stand alone, i just remembered i cant log onto steam at work due to ports being blocked and the wifi being as stable as a wet donut.

Stand alone it is!

Stand Alone - I actually went and brought another license (different account on forums that's why no badge) so that I can use standalone. I had endless issues with steam version (nothing to do with construct2 but rather steams authentication system that caused periodic crashes amoungst a whole list of issues.

I still use my steam version to open example capx as steam version has all 3rd party plugins and that license is tied to this forum account. I will note it has improved since back then. But seriously, I would go standalone without a doubt, especially if the price difference is only $12.
