I did it on my time, for my own reasons, because I wanted to give back something to the community that made Construct what it was. Not because I was expecting something in return.
I've seen a lot of this sort of attitude on the forum lately and frankly I'm a little concerned. Try losing that misplaced sense of entitlement and rekindle your community spirit. If you're not here because you enjoy being here and you support Construct then what's the point?
And no, this isn't aimed solely at you Draven, I've seen it happening a lot around here lately.[/quote:xqv5l42o]
totally agree. it's annoyingly nonstop in the c2 forums.
They're trying to make an awesome game creator. They decided they wanted to make a career out of it as well. End of story. You're not abandoned stepchildren. You're not slighted exgirlfriends. You're not victims of another great indie group selling out to the almighty dollar.
You're the lucky users of a great piece of software that was given to you for free. And the beta testers of an improved version of that software, that deserves to go commercial. I know this isn't the tone Ashley and Tom have been trying to project, so I'm definitely speaking for myself here. but if it offends anyone, I assure you the tone taken by most of the those who feel like they have some debt to hold over scirra's head is just as offensive to me.
