Switching from GMS to Construct2 ?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Sure it's not a problem with your Ubuntu installation/hardware setup? I've never known Scirra to fling falsehoods around to make a quick buck before :P

As for Node-Webkit deployment in Win, Windows 7 and XP have always run em problem-free here.ErekT2013-10-17 01:44:02

I'm a bit sad this to see this topic evolving in a conflict about the linux exporter. Maybe it could be great to create a specific one about it, so everyone can post his configuration and tests ? :)
(I would follow it closely)

Linux or not, I'm now a big C2 fan, will not come back to GMS, and wish everyone to make great games with it. @Ashley you can lock this topic if you want to, no problem.Aurel2013-10-17 13:52:18

@jojoe
Hey man, I can't give screenshot evidence RIGHT now but I have tested 2 things in (iirc) "Ubuntu 12.04 LTS" 64-bit in the past, they worked perfectly although the game performance would lag when fullscreen (But I believe I had something wrong with my drivers). This was a few months back. I'll go check it out in a moment with an export of a project using the current version of Construct 2, and I'll post results. (I'm not a massive linux user, I have it dual-booted with Windows 7, which I use primarily, so gotta rebootz.)

EDIT: Goddamn I don't get Ubuntu. Took me a while to get it working but only because I had exported it into my external harddrive rather than the same harddrive that Ubuntu is installed in. SO I moved the files onto main harddrive and Linux64 ran perfectly, actually maintained 60fps more than when I ran the NodeWebkit export on windows! However, maximizing the game makes it lag like I mentioned before this edit.
So I hit Printscreen, it lets me pick where to save the screenshot. I pick my external harddrive, it gets angry and says I cannot, so I place it in a new folder in my main harddrive, and I take a few more screenshots.
I just rebooted back into windows and then I realise all but 1 screenshots are missing, and the one screenshot is broken.
So, since I didn't want to have done that for no reason, here's a screenshot of the broken screenshot.
[Removed, pointeless lol]

tl;dr, Construct 2 [R147]'s Node-Webkit export works perfect in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit, aside from lag for me in fullscreen. 32-bit doesn't seem to run at all (But that's safely assumed that it's because the install of Ubuntu is 64-bit)Jase002013-10-17 15:21:06

@Ashley @jase00

Just exported Space Blaster and tested with Ubuntu 13.04. Confirmed not working.

Ubuntu 13.04 and above is going to be troublesome due to removal of libudev.so

Here is some hack or solution for now ?

https://github.com/rogerwang/node-webkit/wiki/The-solution-of-lacking-libudev.so.0

Maybe Ashley can automate this process for us in next build ?

BTW Ubuntu 13.10 just out. Going to download and test later on.tumira2013-10-17 17:14:42

It looks like the fix needs to be added to the package or installer. So it might be something that you need to do, not expect C2 to do for you.

I guess at some point node-webkit will fix the issue by building it on the latest version of linux, but then it won't work on older versions.

Yeah, it sounds like a Chromium issue that even affects Google. I'd expect a fix to come through in a few weeks for that.
