Wow ClickTeam Hates Construct!

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

I posted a similar thread on clickteams site to see there response and they just deleted it once they took notice and then sent me this mail.
I was actually considering getting the developers edition on monday and I have the idea to make the same game in both in order to see how they each respectfully do! But this is the response when I mentioned construct in their forums!
Below is their response to my post;

Due to some issues with the developers behind construct we don't allow posts concerning their product in our forums.

Sorry and thanks for your understanding.

It is understandable, any mention of Construct on their forums brings more people to the free competitor... not something I would encourage either.
...but this is mostly psychological. Check my devlog

It's because of it's built in behaviours.
All that do not know trigonomentry and not does "static engines" are losers according to the mmf:ers.

I don't think many of the users there wanted to see that post either. Lets make games, not make competitions on programs.

I agree, what a pointless waste of time.

I agree that going to a competitor's site to do missionary work is not a good idea (not saying you were doing that bobwaite1, as I didn't see your post on the ClickTeam forum, I'm just speaking generally), at the same time you have to wonder what's behind Jeff's response with "Due to some issues with the developers behind construct". I just find a company saying that sort of thing outside of their offices as unprofessional. That part wasn't necessary and he should've kept that to himself.

I wasn't going to the site to do missionary work on the contrary I asked some very valid questions and mentioned my interest in both engines for my team, but wanted to see what there responses would be regarding MMF2 in comparison relating to features and other things...like will MMF2 have this or that basically? Everything I asked was pretty innocent so that is why I said that they must really hate Scirra (Construct). Because they didn't even answer me in a personal message as a potential customer but instead just deleted my post and cut me off! Bad Customer Service I would say there!

They know the answers, which is why they didn't respond :)

But we really should stop all this :T It's been established, many times now, that Clickteam deletes any references to other, similar programs, and has beef with Scirra. Who cares. If you like MMF, use MMF, if you like Construct, use Construct. If you don't know the difference between the two, do some research!Tokinsom2011-08-08 05:16:46
