Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

in September 2012


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

  • New releases

    • Release 102 (beta) - Improved Windows 8 integration.
    • Release r103.2 Stable - Stable update, and minor bug fixes over the previous beta release.
    • Release 104 (beta) - Extra features for event variables, touch, and gamepad.

    (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

    • The website was down for a couple of days, more or less depending on the countries it seems. Scirra's DNS provider went down and most members of the community couldn't access the website for a few days. Everything went back to normal, no data was lost except for some members losing their "day streak" in the process. Otherwise the datas on the website were never compromised.
      More infos




  • New third part plugins/behaviors





  • Blog articles

    • The Difficulties of Self Publicising by Tom: An article about the issue of manipulation on popular sites like reddit or hacker news and how this practice could tend to "democratize". A proposition of solution is also formulated and debated.
    • The web as a platform by Ashley: In this article Ashley talks about the new iOS6 and its support of the Web audio API as well as the fact that the browser Safari now can handle games played from the web in performances close to native performances. A moving forward that allows to consider publishing to the web as a viable publishing option even for mobiles.




  • Reminder:





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





  • This closes the recap for this month post "heat of the summer".
    A steady flow of new releases, informations as well as documentation.

    October is there, we're still here too, see you next month.Kyatric2012-10-01 05:24:02

    September is so great.
    October 2012 is coming and so many resources and opportunities for game developers this month.

    http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2012/09/27/october-2012-resources-and-opportunities/

    I hope C2 developers can take advantages from this because HTML5 is cross platform solution today :)
