Construct 2 Mobile

  • Also I seriously doubt you can do anything productive on a <5" screen.

    I agree. Handheld devices aren't for software development. There are some examples, but these apps usually are very limited and not comfortable to work with. Not because the UI design, but because of the device. Would you write your thesis on a phone or tablet with the good designed on-screen keyboard? These devices were mostly designed to consume content with, not to make them.

  • Most Windows tablets only run on arm architecture, which means it won't run C2.

    Then there's the whole mouse thing....

    Wrong..

    The earlier gen Surface (non Pro) tablet used an ARM processor which is why it was running Windows RT and not a full PC version of Windows 8.1/10 at the time. Windows RT isn't supported anymore for the simple fact, you couldn't run x86 programs and only run programs/apps from the Windows Store. Nobody didn't like that shit.

    Most cheap Windows tablets nowadays uses Intel Atom processors.. Which is x86.. I've ran Construct 2 on a cheap Windows tablet that I brought from Best Buy before, so I know what I'm talking about. The only problem was the mouse, but you can just hook up a Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse... So no problems...

    Current gen Surface PROs now uses Intel i3,i5,i7

  • How much does it cost?

  • How much does it cost?

    I brought this one from Walmart before, but I gave it to my cousin because he needed something for school. It was surprisingly fast for a Quad Core Atom and the screen was nice size. 10 inch. So this tablet was like the Surface alternative if you can't afford one of those like me <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green"> . The one that I had lightup keyboard, but I didn't like the keys on the keyboard. It was well too small for my hands. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green"> It's only $150. It originally had Windows 8.1 on it, but I hated that operating system and had no choice but to use the free upgrade to Windows 10. The version I had a decent storage size on it too. 64 gigs of Flash Store and 2 Gigs of Ram. It ran Construct 2 program and games with no problem. I tested many demos and some of my games on it. The Intel atom uses Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, so that's why it could run decent games at decent FPS.

    If you want something cheaper, then you can get this here.

    Digiland are known for selling cheap Windows tablets. $70 is a good deal, just the screen was too small for my liking when I had this tablet for a short while last year. It ran all Windows programs and a full version of Windows 8.1 and I purchased a Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse and it worked perfectly on it.

  • I would suggest putting C2 on a stick, and seeing if it runs before you make a purchase, if that's your main goal.

    Then check if you can use a mouse with it, because you really do need one for C2. Right click in the editor etc.

    Of course Wally world may not like you putting things into their demos, but anyone who gets a commision probably won't argue.

    The Raspberry Pi has a version of W10... just saying.

    Edit:

    Also, C3.

    Multiplatform, maybe.

  • There are all good points, I wasn't aware of the touch issues on C2. Still a companion app would be great. Just my personal point of view. I consider myself very productive with my phone, I'm a store manager and I need to work on spreadsheets, emails, and reports.

    glerikud I'm running windows 10 on my lumia Icon, and I can do all those without touching my laptop. Ive been doing so many times that's easy for me to work on 5" screens now I guess, but you have a very good point, software development might not be the best thing to do on a phone . You guys seem very knowledgeable about all this, thanks for the info

  • Try Construct 3

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

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • You use Raspberry Pi? I sure as hell don't lol.. I wouldn't buy one of those things if my life depended on it.

    Being that I've tested these two products. Both tablets that I've listed ran Construct 2 perfectly, so it doesn't hurt to take someone's word of review on a product.

    Both Space Blaster and Ghost Demo ran at 60fps running on Windows 10 using Microsoft Edge on the Nextbook Flex tablet.

    Walmart has a 15 day refund policy for tablets if you don't like it, so it doesn't hurt to buy and try it out and return it later if it's not your thing.

  • Windows 10 Iot on the Pi2 is a stripped down version.

    Ashley had a few tweets about getting C2 games to run on it.

    So yeah it's probably going to be viable for mobile, and not so mobile.

    It's a huge implication for anyone who wants to make arcade cabinets.

  • Ive heard of the raspberry pi, but never actually gotten my hands on it, about the stick, still needs a screen, and of course mouse n keyboard. I just tried the mirror option mentioned earlier, n it works like a charm!!! I have a logitech bluetooth mouse, super thin n small that fits on my pocket like it wasnt there. Paired it with my phone, and bingo!! Of course not as easily to interact as it was my book, but damn it works for my purposes!!!

  • arcab072081 if you have a phablet, like a nokia 1520, it is AMAZING to use construct on

  • I have the lumia Icon, waiting on my contract to end to move to att n get me the 950XL, or the surface phone(if it ever comes out). Your idea was the perfect solution for what i have asked for, thank you very much

  • > Waltuo yes I know it would be damn cool if C3 would come also in that way.

    > I own the surface pro 3, and the surface book, but none of them fit in my pocket. I meant it as in an app version, a mobile as in phone, you know, pocket. But your small tablet comment is not a bad idea

    >

    I just couldn't imagine trying to use the events system on my cell phone. That would be annoying for me... just saying.

    And so its is happening

  • Sorry to say it, but this is a stupid idea. It would be a waste of time and resources.

    Like other people said, you can get a cheap Windows tablet, use Team Viewer or have C2 on a stick and continue your work on any PC.

    Also I seriously doubt you can do anything productive on a <5" screen.

    Am so glad that stupid idea and waste of resources are becoming a reality

    Anyone who does not think you can do something productive on a <5" screen isn't thinking outside the box. Is it ideal? Nah, but it is great depending on the circumstances

  • you are exactly right, it might not be the ideal enviroment, but sure does help, like replying to an email on ur phone, limited screen and not all the things you might be able to do on your pc, but still gives you that edge of being able to respond to it quickly and on the go. Same principle with now C3. 

    And remember people, a smartphone is just as smart as the person using it. Keep that in mind 😉
