Suggestion for Construct 2

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Jun 21, 2011 2:20 am

The new version of Construct will have HTML5 as main platform. And HTML5 has not necessity of DirectX, so i think that would wonderful have Construct in linux too...

what developers think about it?

The developers have said before that they have no plans to port the Construct 2 editor to Linux.

The games themselves can be played in any HTML5 capable browser regardless of OS, though.

I think C2 might work in Wine, since it is OpenGL based, but I haven't tried. Next time I toy around with Linux I'll try it and post my findings.

I might be wrong (I'm not around here all the time, so I may have missed something) but I'm sure they said that the C2 editor will only be written for Windows.
The exporters allow the games to run on different systems.

Also, C1 is free, but C2 isn't going to be free.

Krush.

It's a huge amount of work (possibly well over a year) for a tiny tiny market.

Your best bet is to contact the Wine folk and see if they can get C2 working with that.

Very slight.

He was comparing it to GameMaker, but free, so he was clearly under the illusion that C2 would be 100% free, which is what I corrected him on. :)
