<Sorry for my English if there are some problems about grammar or vocabs>
The topic named 'About Construct 2 release 209' I am writing here does not contains anything about bugs or technical problem. Because I don't have a license, so I say as a free user.
If you have a license, I think that you don't have to read this.
Let's get started.
First, I want to talk about new features
You can see that in r209 there is a Windows 10 exporter and a new C2 splash loader.
In my mind, when r208 is released, I don't think that Scirra will make the win10 exporter free because, Xbox One, I don't have to say more about this. If you don't know win10, google it.
But, the splash loader, that's what I want to talk more about this. => Another new thing.
Second, yes and I am talking about the splash loader. Look at this:
There is a new loader style in Project Properties called Construct 2 splash, designed by our artist Paulo Ricardo Reinehr. This shows a "Powered by Construct 2" style screen which looks like this. It's mobile-optimised and adapts to any size screen or aspect ratio. Projects published with the Free edition are required to use it, but licensed users can still change the loader style (or opt-in to use it if you want to help promote Construct 2).
Yep. You can compare between the free and paid edition:
+ Can't export game to iOS, Android, desktop app, Wii U or game with IAP, ads.
+ Can't export game that has over 100 events.
+ Can't use for commercial purpose.
But the paid edition can remove all limitations.
But, what's the difference between r209 and earlier releases?
You can use your own loader! That's the difference.
Maybe you can't use it for commercial purpose, but it can make reputation (or popularity). Everyone can know you, you will be famous, that can motivate you to make awesome game then you can make money.
But the C2 loader (it's not bad) can destroy your reputation. All games made with Free edition are all using the SAME loader, so you can't make a good first experience.
So, here's what i want to say:
Please let it free for free user. If it was free in the past, just let it free now. Or the users won't download new releases, they will download older releases.
Who agrees with my opinion?
