Construct 3 any news?

    Sebastian bottom line is if $8/month is too much for you, there are many other tools for you to use. I'd like to think your time would be better used creating with one of those engines than spending it complaining about construct 3

    You are making assumptions. $8/month is not too expensive for me. I'm against a company switching their business ethics and the subscription model. I invested a lot of time learning C2, I paid for the license 3 times because I wanted my friends to use it, and I was expecting C3 to have the same pricing model as C2. I seem to remember Ashley saying in a interview the price would probably be similar to C2. It's a moral issue for me.

    it depends, I prefer to pay a year if I get a software that value that money (and every time improve) that paid one time and have the same problem as construct2...

    ask everyone, if they prefer paid one time with the same problem of contruct2 or paid 1 time a year and have a software that works without any problem... you will see what will be the most answer

    Sorry, I don't really follow what you are saying. What problem of Construct 2 are you referring to?

    check the forum and you will see.

    If they were about to go out buisness, and they asked you to pay more so that they could keep the doors open would you agree to that?

    Yes.

    Edit: Within reason.

    Ugh... Check for what?

    They can't do that with the current license.

    the general issues with the exporter options (and there are a lot...) that you have to use the third party, and one time works,and another times not.... and other stuff like that?

    I'm sorry you are having general issues with exporter options, but I was talking about the pricing model.

    They can't ask for more money.

    The C2 license only works if the user base is fairly successful.

    Then that hinges on that success bringing in more users that are in turn successful.

    That hasn't happened.

    The current model is not sustainable.

    It only works when you can stay ahead of saturation, and this is a niche market.

    So anyway, asking them to keep the same method is the same as asking them to go out of business and that is a moral issue with me.

    I agree with this.

    No one is asking Scirra to go out of business. You asked a hypothetical question, and I answered. I'm not asking for C3 to have the exact same pricing model as C2. I'm simply against a subscription model. It's not the only profitable business model. I know I've said this before to you, it shows a lack of imagination on your part if you think subscriptions are they only way Scirra can profit from C3.

    , no one is forcing you to pay anything. You and scirra were not locked in a contract that is now being broken. If you still feel it's not worth payinng to invest in c3, after this rather poorly planned revelation process is completed, you are free to carry on using c2 without paying any more. Unless you keep on buying c2 for your friends, but that's all up to you.
