Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

in October 2012



It's time for the monthly recap of what went down on Scirra.com during the past month.

  • New releases

    • Release 105 (beta) - iOS and Windows 8 improvements
    • Release 106 (beta) - Windows 8 IAP, offline manual, redesigned export flow, and more.
    • Release R107 (beta) - Automatic memory management and bug fixes.
    • Release R108.2 Stable - Stable update, with minor changes over the last beta release.

    (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

      If you think you have found a bug in Construct 2 you can report it in this forum BUT
    • Make sure it is not already a reported bug by searching through the "Bugs" forum
    • Make sure it is not a bug in your events, a difference between what you have coded and what you would expect
    • Make sure you're using the very latest version of Construct 2 (beta possibly, stable if this is the very latest release available)
    • Join a .capx of the issue in the simplest manner possible (no 100+ events capx, no 10 mb capx)
    • Make sure to read How to report bugs before posting and providing all the required informations (your configuration, the steps to use to reproduce the bug, any relevant information you can provide)




  • Website/general

    • The new design gets applied further on the website. At first only the home page had the new design, and it was applied during September/October to more parts of the website (manual, blog, forums)
    • Construct 2 is now on steam Greenlight. Vote so that C2 gets distributed on steam ! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=103246571




  • New third part plugins/behaviors





  • WebGL effects

  • A list of published webGL effects is maintained in the "Plugins for Construct 2" forum, and if you have some effects of your own you want to share, please post them in that forum with a title tag [Effect].
    • Alpha threshold - Animmaniac - LINK
    • 2D dynamic lighting - Pode - LINK




  • Blog articles

    • Make Windows 8 games with Construct 2 by Ashley: An article about the development of the Win8 features over time and how C2 is now ready to export fully integrated Win 8 applications.
    • Announcing two new export platforms by Ashley: An article, announcing the support, in the next few weeks, of Construct2 export towards windows 8 phone platform as well as Firefox MarketPlace, raising to 7 the number of export formats available with C2, stressing further the fact that you can really develop your application once and deploy to various platforms thanks to C2.



  • Reminder:





  • As an added bonus, here are the links to the former "What you may have missed" topics.





  • Don't forget to support C2's submission on Steam's Greenlight (and spread the word).
    Winter is coming and this month of October just went by bringing a lot of new content and opportunities.

    See you next month !

    Thanks for these -- haven't been able to be as active on the forums lately as I'd like, but it's nice to have a breakdown of some of the good stuff that's been passing me by :)
