New releases and general discussions.

I have a simple question: Will there ever be a linux version of construct?
Cuz' i wanna get rid of windows and i can't do this because of construct! It won't run on wine either!

No, Construct will always be Windows only.

Construct 2 may have the ability to build games that run on Linux, but the program itself will still be a Windows program I believe.

It's a valid question so we're not going to delete it!

We're all volunteers working in our spare time so we want our work to hit as wide an audience as possible as easily as possible. That means developing for one platform only, and the most popular platform, for the IDE anyway. There might be a future Linux runtime for Construct 2, but I'd rather write a Mac runtime first...

I don't know, isn't that a question for the Wine developers?

I don't think Wine updates to the latest DirectX very often.

Actually, they constantly keep updated, but they never seem to fully finish converting Direct X before another version comes out. :/

Construct still uses the August 2008 version of DirectX, so as long as they've finished that, it'll work.

Wine works perfectly. Wine for OSX also works perfectly. The games might crash on exit, but big deal.
