Windows 8 RT devleopment

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Sep 23, 2013 9:47 pm

Greeetings,

I discovered Construct2 for the first time today. I have been interested in creating APPs for my Windows 8 RT tablet.

I have 2 questions:

Can you use construct2 to develop apps for Windows 8 RT?

Do you NEED a windows 8 PC to develop apps for windows 8 or could you develop in windows 7 and create a windows 8 version? (I assume not)

I didn't notice the RT bit :/

Yea, I agree. MicroS**t just keep shooting themselves in the foot with RT.

Unfortunately Windows RT isn't dead, the newly announced Surface 2 uses it.

@Sydious just a heads up that performance on the Surface RT is currently the worst out of all our target platforms. I recommend testing on hardware early and often if going with it.

Construct 2's Windows 8 support covers both Windows 8 Pro and Windows RT. There are performance differences though.
