Win 8 tests

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Dec 10, 2012 11:19 am

Hey, I'm wondering how the performance between HTML5/Win8 Apps compare? I don't have a developer account just yet, and in the mean time, I'm just testing my project in a browser, so to anyone that has a Win 8 license, how is performance testing the app through Construct 2 and the real Win 8 App?

I'd like to have a couple apps ready before handing out the money to Microsoft and publish, because I've upgraded to Windows 8 recently (and because of that I can't afford the Developer License), so I just use default tools.

Can anyone drop a few words?

IE10 is hardware accelerated and has a good javascript engine so performance for most games is adequate to good. However I've heard anecdotally that IE10 on ARM devices is not so fast. I don't think IE10 is so well optimised there, but the market share of Win8 ARM devices is probably going to remain small compared to desktops for the time being.

Ok, so using Construct's default "test bed", so to speak, is a good indicator on how Windows 8 Apps would behave.

Good, good.

ARM for now is not interesting for me.

I'm so sad I can't take part on the compo... Oh well...
