Sounds like it will become scripting obligatory, I hope that in Construct 2 you aren't obliged to use text editing, sound's kind of hard, I presume it is optional, I can't say about being easier for team editing since I never worked in a team tough.

Just to clarify it - my idea was only to change format of .cap files. Nothing in workflow of Construct itself would be changed, only .cap files would change.

I work in game development team, and we were thinking of using Construct, but since it has binary file formats, it (still) doesn't work for us.

If Construct is indeed moving towards XML, that's even better news, but I understand that's huge task which needs lot of time o accomplish.

Why would you say that?

Anyway Ash has said that the event system will still be there, it's just that events will create an .xml file. Think Dreamweaver... you are using a GUI to make an .html file... which you could also code by hand if you wanted to. Same thing. It shouldn't be obligatory at all.

Just to clarify, this is something planned for Construct 2.

Which very likely wont be ready in a real, usable form for quite a long time. So anyone thinking of waiting until then might just wanna get used to the current version and find workarounds.

In that case I should get my hands dirty with my ideas soon :-)
