[quote="Tom":1z3c1r1e]Is it fair for you to ask Ash to work part time on it, so you can avoid paying the price of the license?[/quote:1z3c1r1e]
I don't think the price of a license is an issue for the majority of people.
It's hardly going to break the bank is it.
But I'm not convinced that the old Construct method worked that well.
In my time here, there are major bugs that where never fixed, despite requests, many posts from people asking very relevant questions that went unanswered even though other posts around them were answered, devs disappearing for long periods of time, some forever, and then the project ending abruptly so that the new version can be worked on (if it wasn't for people like RojoHound, Lucid, and 1 or 2 others, Construct 0.x wouldn't have been anywhere near what it is now).
I've already made my opinion on the absence of an .exe exporter in Construct 2, so I won't go over old ground, but my main concern with Construct 2 is that for a paid product, the above behaviour wouldn't be acceptable.
