Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Holy moly. I have been gone from the forums for quite a while.

I have made an windows 8 store app on a windows 7 laptop. AM I still able to enter or do I have to have developed on a windows 8 OS?

Making an account to publish my entry is also another hurdle that seems confusing.

@nomad

you need windows 8 to develop for windows 8. You can export to windows 8 from construct, but to finish it in visual studio you need windows 8.

Aw :( Well I guess I can put it on the Scirra Arcade. Shame I could not have a chance to get a personal key.


Good luck to the rest of you.

I submitted my game/app "Ski Mayhem" to the windows 8 app store on 14 June.

Today I just got a email from Windows 8 saying that my app failed at the Content Compliance part.

It said that the app either fails to launch or crashes after launch.

But I followed all the steps for packing and uploading to Windows 8.

Testing and certification all worked perfectly when I was testing the app with Visual Studio 2012 Express on my laptop running on Windows 8.

Has anyone else encountered similar problem ?

And is there a way to find out why my app fails to launch or crash according to Windows 8 testers, but when it runs perfectly fine when I did everything I can on my side ?

Ski Mayhem has even been successfully published on Google Play Store, sigh...

@Nomad You need to use visual studio to package the app for the windows store and windows phone store.

@guero, sadly I am not able to find out as it seems to work perfectly when testing on Visual Studio Express 2012.

I followed all the steps provided in the tutorial to publish in Windows 8.

Hope that Ashley can help out, but I think it would be too late by now as it would need 5-7 days for the app to be approved...
