MMF2 VS Construct

  • Construct is better designed than MMF2 in so many ways. Subevents, for each loops, changing display resolution at runtime, better zooming, better bilinear support, better alpha channel support, event sheets can be included within another sheet, you can "read" events you're not just looking at check boxes, that's just some off the top of my head.

    Yeah, MMF2's clunky old event system is the one reason I just can't stick with it. I understand it, I just hate it, and I'd bet that this alone is the biggest roadblock to new users getting into and sticking with it.

    When Construct was built, the devs here had the right idea; create an event system that can be read and interpreted at-a-glance. It just makes perfect practical sense and should be--in my opinion--the standard for this type of dev tool. The other approaches (checkboxes, building blocks, pull-down menus) all look good visually, but in practice they lack that conversational-style translation that gives your events a smooth, organized flow.

    I'd have to say he's right though. Even if using Click products for a long time means you'll be used to it, a newcomer will always prefer Construct's way of doing things. I also find it easier to see where I went wrong in Construct as well.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

  • ou obviously know nothing about mmf

    lol? I've used it for many years (arvoesine being my last game in MMF2).

  • Well posting on the construct forum will result in a all around win for Construct but it all depends on what you are doing. In my opinion for the following tasks these are the results -

    Exe Games = Construct Wins

    HTML5 Games/Web Apps = Construct 2 Wins

    Flash, Java, iOS Games = MMF2 Wins

    App/Program Dev = MMF2 Wins

    If Coding:

    Python Coding = Construct Wins

    General Coding (Python, Lua, .net, C#, OpenGL, Others) = MMF2 Wins
