Bring back usefull construct (fullscreen) !

  • I still use r146 since the Hide address bar feature was removed...

    As many developers here, I sell C2 games to publishers and they absolutely want the bar removed on iOs6. They just don't care that 80% of users have installed iOS7. These companies have very strict guidelines we cannot workaround with a simple trick.

    You can't tell the publishers "Oh, tell your players to upgrade to iOS7 because Construct 2 guys don't want to bring back the feature, sorry!"

    For the JavaScript action workaround, that's fine, but if the players need to do a touch input to make it happen, I'm pretty sure they will report this as a bug.

  • Same here. C2 professional developer. If you guys in any way limit us and what we can do (or force us) then C2 is starting to be developer non-friendly for us. C2 even with its easy of use and nooby friendliness is still used by professional developers - so please do not forget about us and do not limit us "because most of people dont use it".

  • You don't need to use anything other than the 'Request fullscreen' action in the Browser object in Chrome for Android. One limitation is it only works in a user-input event, so you need to use it in an 'On touch' trigger or similar.

    Thats great but could you post that workaround for iOS6 you removed?

    Quite a bit of people are requesting it so far.

    I would also like to say its very likely they will want to support iOS6 even when iOS8 or 9 will be released. They have milions of users every month, they cant just isolate lets say 5% of their customers because we are talking about thousands of dollars of their revenue right here. Its obvious they cant except people to add game to homescreen or install newest iOS version since most of them are illiterate with any kind of software. Thats why we have to care about them.

    Im sorry but we are customers here right now, we cant demand anything from you. We can ask, and thats what we are trying to do. Most of people from what Ive talked with tried to reason or email you/scirra about our stance on iOS6 and you defend so hard your decision it would take much less time to just give us a proper solution instead of telling to go and fix it ourselves. Some of us dont even know any js - thats why we use construct2 and really its one great tool, im still amazed how awesome it is. I want to praise it on every possible forum, conference or meeting im at. Im proud to use construct2 but its very hard to when its impossible to reason with creator of tools :(

  • OK - I guess there are a lot of you still asking for this, so we'll bring it back for the next build. I guess it's not your fault if publishers want to support old versions of iOS.

  • Thanks for looking into this Ashley : )

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • I kinda like the bar. It lets you know what time it is, and how much charge is left without leaving the app.

    Thank You so very much :)

    I just cant express how much it means to all of us that love Construct2.

    If anything can excuse my usually poor choice of words to describe what Im having on mind (not native speaker, I seriously dont want to sound like flamer/troll/aggresive person) is that Im really caring about exactly this piece of software because there is nothing that can subsitute for Construct on market. Doubtfully there will ever be.

    Yeah but 100% publishers dont like it though. You can always leave it on. Its all about having a choices :)

  • That's true, and I guess you could always pull the top tab down in IOS.

    Wonderful! A big great thank you for listening to us.

  • +1 for bringing it back.

  • Thank you for bringing it back! :)

  • I've just downloaded last release but I can't find the "Hide address bar" option. Will it be back in next release?

    Thank you for your answer.
