Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

in January 2012



Hello, January 2012 has been another intense month for Construct 2's website and community.


(The features listed here are only the "highlighted" features for each release. Check each release page to see the complete changelog and comments for each version)

Be sure to keep updated to the most recent release of Construct 2



  • Scirra's website has seen a few modifications:









  • A few posts from the forum that deserve your attention
    • Rotary competition official - An official competition issued by Scirra with tons of fun prizes to win and a gorgeous theme. Make a game which mechanic/gameplay relies on the rotating capabilities in C2 (layout, layers, tiledbg, etc...)
    • Non english communities - A list of several outer forums/websites in different languages than english. If you know some community that isn't refered there yet, be sure to leave a post with the link.
    • An article about HTML5 - A recap of HTML5's situation by the end of january as far as technology, browsers and marketing/acceptance go.
    • A sticky in the bugs section that deals with the control issue in chrome (keyboard+ mouse)
    • Shameless plug: the How do I FAQ gets updated on regular basis welcoming new sections/items listed according to the discussions in the forum. I strongly suggest to check the "Picking/selecting an instance" section, as well as the "Arrays" section. Both those subjects were recently treated in valuable discussions in my eyes that are to help a lot of new (and less new) users. Check it out !
    • Also you're still invited to propose links to add and rephrase some of the listed items. This is quite a big job, don't hesitate to help in, I'll appreciate it.



Also there's been quite a few new tutorials. The community is sharing more and more useful informations/tips/tricks and knowledge.
There have been also a great deal of new games uploaded in the Arcade and in the Your creations forum. Take the opportunity of this topic to post about the games you may have tried this past month and enjoyed a great deal. It will bring some welcomed exposure to the games and their authors.


This first month of 2012 has been pretty intense as far as C2 releases and the features they proposed went as well as in the website/community in general.
The current contest should also provides a bunch of nice new games for the arcade by the end of February.

31 days went by in 2012 and we're still all alive, see you next month.Kyatric2012-02-01 23:23:19
