an .exe exporter, or at least a definite promise that it will be included with the final product
....Either the Scirra devs will make one, or a third-party will make one.
.....there will probably be an EXE exporter.
Not quite the same thing mate.
I remember that original statement, that's why I said what I did in my post.
I'm talking about the devs promising that it's part of their development plan, and that paying for C2 now gets you the exe exporter.
Even if paying a little extra for C2 now meant that I was paying for the exporter, at least it would be part of the contract.
Them saying that they'll get around to doing one eventually and that a 3rd party might get around to doing one isn't the same.
It would be fine for a free program like C1, but for a commercial product, it's not enough.
Buying C2 and waiting for a couple of years for a "possible" .exe exporter is of no use to me, because I'd end up paying for something I would never use.
