Will we /ever/ see C2 on OSX ?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Jun 21, 2013 11:00 pm

I only have a Windows machine to run C2. However, all my other apps are on my Mac's. Is there /any/ chance we're going to see it on OSX?

I'm not Scirra, but based on their previous responses the answer is 'not in the near future'.

We're asked this constantly, but as a 3 man company we just don't have the resources. Since we're asked it so much, we are considering what we could do for the long term future.

Have you guys considered looking into MonoDevelop? That might be one way to support Windows, Mac, and Linux with one codebase.

I would like to throw my support behind supporting OSX and would do almost anything* needed to see it happen natively. I am switching to a more iOS focused development path right now so being able to use C2 in OSX natively would be nice =) I tried using various Wine options but no go so resorted to using Parallels which works for now.

*anything involving lemurs or more money than I can count in pennies is off the table.

Hi WildShroom,

At the moment I run Construct 2 on Mac via parallels desktop. To be honest, it is very likely running on Windows. I have worked with C2 on Mac for nearly a month and can't find any issue here. In addition, the speed is really fine although I only have a mid 2012 Mac 13 with min opt.

Also, I develop cross platforms app for iOS , Android, BB and even WP8. Everything work fine on Mac.

Cheers,
B

While an OSX version would be cool, I think it's reasonable to expect people to be able to save up for VMware Fusion and Windows 8 licenses. It's a solid solution for Construct 2 development and has the obvious upside of allowing you to run other Windows-specific software as well.

I think this is something you have to be aware of as a user of an OS that doesn't even hold a quarter of the market shares of the leading OS.

I feel for you OSX guys. It's the only reason I keep to Windows. A few critical applications that run on Windows. Scirra however is looking for employee's so who knows. Maybe in a year or two :) I plan to get a used Mac Mini in the near future for pushing IOS products. Having the option to run C2 on it would be fantastic :)


@Xionor
Totally not helpful. Sciraa is a business. They will do whatever they should be doing to run the buisiness.
