There's a hell of a lot of stuff Construct can do, but there's also stuff it can't. Quite a few topics have been made about the same things recently, so I thought I'd write this post to help newbies
I'm not a mod or whatever, so my word is not God/Mod.
- ONLINE GAMES: As it happens, I'm currently working on a plugin for this, but until and unless I or someone else releases one, NO ONLINE. UNLESS, possibly, you use Python- this HAS worked, with networked pong, and I believe scidave is making a tutorial.
- EXPORT TO ANY PLATFORM OTHER THAN WINDOWS: This has been suggested many times, and is highly unlikely to happen ever until Construct 2. THIS INCLUDES FLASH, JAVA, SILVERLIGHT, BLAHBLAHBLAH- you can NOT run Construct games in a browser.
- 3D: Internally, Construct is 3D, as is evidenced by the 3D Box among other things. However, there is NO way to load meshes, and there WILL NOT be a 3D editor. It's still theoratically possible to do some cool semi-3D stuff, and FPS demos have been made, but it involves rather hard maths and is not what Construct was designed for.
- GENERIC GAMEPAD: There's no plugin for this and no-one is known to be working on one. If you want to make one, or pay someone else to make one, that'd be super, otherwise you'll have to wait or go without.
There's quite a bit more, but those are the things I've been seeing a lot of. Will edit later with more. Hope someone finds this helpful!
