Good developers respect a good bug report regardless of where it comes from. The important thing is the report is clear and identifies a real problem.
Ashley with all respect I understand what you are trying to explain to us but this case against native engines, is not just about minor bugs and performance issues.
I like to go with examples, so I'd like to get back to this quite old report also known as the "30fps cap", some people will surely remember it. *
A fair amount of users have participated in it and have actively tried to convince the chromium team to add this feature but this is already more than 12 months old!
Do you personally see any progress being made, any real attempt of getting this implemented from their side?
It's things like these, things that are standard in native engines were the web is still lacking and I don't see a solution in waiting 1+ years until something has been done about it.
I know that going native will effectively make it impossible for 5-10% of the user base to execute and play our games but that is a risk I'm willing to take. And if you take into account that NWjs doesn't have WinXP support and Native does, things should be even again.
I'm not saying all of this because I hate you or your product, it's just so frustrating sometimes to wait months over months to get a fix or feature that natives already have for ages. I guess this is how things go with the web, I can't tell you more than the other C2 users around here already did.
It just feels like you actively try to avoid things like these and try to compensate the damage that these things already have done or still do to some serious devs around here. It's your business and you handle your business but seeing the latest progress of the competitors make C2 and possibly C3, look really old and something you don't want to work with. It might not be nice to read that but it is what it is and I cannot always keep on supporting something that is causing high amounts of frustration to it's user base.
* FPS cap reports: #1 and #2
I hope I could deliver the message well, if there is something that doesn't make sense or if someone would like to add something go ahead below.
