Wii U Plugin

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Jan 28, 2014 12:08 pm

Hey guys!

If there's anyone with the Wii U plugin, would you be able to let me know if there's a way to have the TV screen show something different to the GamePad?

That's the main innovation for the Wii U, so it would be nice to be able to access that functionality.

Nintendo make everyone sign NDAs when they get the dev kits, so most likely nobody is allowed to tell you.

@Ashley

Oh, I thought this would be more of a Construct thing to announce as a feature, rather than be tied up by Nintendo. After all, all someone has to do is release a trailer for their game made with Construct 2 which shows both screens working independently and we'll all know the answer.

In the meantime, having your hands tied means you have potentially less features to announce for Construct 2. I don't see how anyone wins regarding keeping this a secret... apart from Nintendo if their plugin only supports the gamepad, and they don't want people to find that out until it's too late... but I doubt that.

In any case, I guess I'll play the waiting game until I see more, or get my own license, but I doubt I can start planning any Wii U games until I know the answer, as it's pretty integral.

Can you confirm if Nintendo Web Framework supports or not WebGL ?
Also, does it work with Spriter plugin ?

@TGeorgeMihai - as above, we're all under NDAs and discussing the console or dev kits appears to be something Nintendo are highly sensitive about. I'll talk to Nintendo and see if they're happy for us to release any info.

So the wii-u stuff information is not allowed to be shared ?

Thats rather silly, seeing as most of the support relating to CS2 comes from the community members :\

Hurray, I've been approved as a Nintendo Wii U Dev
After a quick look, I get that that I need to use Nintendo's software and hardware (DevKit) in addition to Construct 2 Engine (that was kind of expected).

Privacy Policy is pretty standard like in all corporations:
- What happens in Nintendo stays in Nintendo
- Nintendo has the right to modify the Privacy Policy without notifying me.

@Ashley , I will wait for your mail with the details about Construct 2 Wii U exporter
