  • weilies,

    From get go, you can't open more than one instance of software. You can't have two separate projects open. For example I have to monitors. i can't have one open in one monitor the other open in another monitor.

    Dont blame steam because CS2 doesnt let you to detach window. You are opening two instances of CS2 in order to emulate it. Which is not good, anyway. And most of todays software will not allow this.

    You can't open any projects via the windows explorer window. So .capx won't open C2 because steam breaks the file association. You will have to manually open C2, click file menu, then open, then browse to desired file etc.

    True. But drag and drop works

    My experience: You won't be able to close C2 - you will have to use task manager to force shutdown.

    You will have to shut down C2 every couple hours of use, else it becomes unstable and crashes. (something about the cache becoming corrupted)

    Fixed

    And a long list that I was told was completely unrelated to C2 steam, but completely disappeared since I switched to scirra version. Funny hey.

    Trust me software is worth it, and worth the extra price buying from scirra.

    You dont know if Scirra will discount CS2 personal.

  • weilies,

    C2 does allow, steam doesn't and that is the point. Inferior user experience for same piece of software. Blame is justified.

    weilies,

    You are opening two instances of CS2 in order to emulate it. Which is not good, anyway.

    Why not? lol, nothing wrong with it, I do it all the time with multiple softwares with ZERO issues over last decade. As long as your machine can handle the extra load - then no problem at all.

    And most of todays software will not allow this.

    Lol, of course you can open multiple instances of today's software. The tab interface is slowly taking over from launching a new instance. Which is fine because you just drag the tab out to launch a new instance.

  • If C2 allows you to drag windows to another screen. Than why are you opening another instance of the program ?

    I dont know which software are you using. But none of newer software doesn't allow multiple instances.

    Try opening two instances of Unity <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • DUTOIT:

    Well there is a workaround for opening .capx, so it is not a big problem for people that know about it.

    I can run two instances:

    No stability issues either.

  • after post by DUTOIT - will wait for SCIRRA discount also

    C2 doesn't allow you to drag tab out. It allows you to run 2 instances of game in C2 and browser side by side - very cool. Long list why, comes with working on bigger projects.

    And yes Unity does, useful to test projects on multiple Unity versions to check compatibility etc.

    Newer software - well, your newer software doesn't and my newer software does. I'll stick with mine as it suits how I like to work.

    mindfaQ,

    Yeah, it works great, but it has also stopped working as well, then works again. It is a hack/work-around solution (a great solution) but not something I want to be reliant on. Same as not wanting to use external plugins as I don't like anything out of my control, or having to be reliant on.

    I like steam, I love C2, just not together and that was my original point. You buying same software with 2 user experiences. The scirra is the better user experience - its that simple.

  • DUTOIT , i dont know for you. But for me 40$ is lot of money.

    So I guess I will have to make do with having to drag and drop file into C2.

  • Punxel, I understand. And agree 100%, take the discounted price if that is what you need to do. I did, I got 50% off on steam in july i think, and it wasn't worth the discount (to me at least) with all the issues I had.

    It got so bad/ I got so annoyed, I brought the business license here to get away from steam and it was money well spent (to me at least).

    But that is my experience, my journey. I'm sure yours will be different.
