Native Desktop Exporter for Construct 3

  • I disagree, multiplatform support is true, though I do see a huge FPS drop in my tablet game. I can say that simple tablet games run very well for me. I do use XDK, and I am publishing to Steam, with NW.

    I know that my desktop game runs circles around my tablet game. The more I look to android the more I think possibly Paper2d or Unity may be my solution for mobile. But for the price C2 has delivered imho. Cost performance has to total into everything for me. And when I started Unity was over priced(still is imo) and Paper2d did not exist.

    I don't see a problem with anything people are saying but I do try and put myself in the other pair of shoes. Not defending because I do not know Ashley. But he and Tom have proven to be invested in C2, and the community support is amazing, for such a small group of insanely Knowledgeable People to actually share a TON of stuff is rare. These are the reasons I will most likely stay with C2/3 for the Adventures of DaKoo games, be it PC or mobile, even after it's release. The challenge for me then becomes about working within the given limitations, be it mine or C2. Making sure I only add features that I can pull off.

    I will say that making Adventures of DaKoo has taken considerably longer due to the constant changes. But I find things have been improving considerably since I started, with few exceptions.

    The Games design must take into account the tools being used, this is something I did not consider when I first started. This is something that is very hard for a first timer like me. I want everything. Since I got most of what I wanted and C2 did get me to greenlight I am ahead of the curve with the 100 dollar purchase. Truely I really love it, but like I said before there are a few things I pine for;)

  • Wow, things are pretty heated in this thread.

    Here, my opinion,

    I don't care much about a new native exporter especially if it means Ashley will be focusing mainly on that part.

    I rather have him work on other more relevant stuff, especially in the editor portion.

  • Have observed this thread, and refrained until now to chip in.

    But, in general I don't think Ashley who relies on this product to earn a living from, would seek to make any decision that would be financially unviable.

    It's all about extensibility, and I believe that we should trust his judgement on this, as we all look to the future of Construct 2..3..4..

  • I spent some time creating samples, research and stuff. Anyways I wanted to dispel the bunnymark test.

    Yes bunnymark is awesome. How can bunnymark render so many bunnies.... that's because the bunnies are not treated like a standard sprite. the bunnymark test is in fact a form of particle effect. The difference is that instead of standard particles just spraying out and following a properties patter, the bunnies have game code. So I went on to see about creating a devilmark image at 58,000 devils(I can get 30fps with 65,000 bunnies).

    The result is that my computer can handle 65k devils as a particle at 30fps.

    So here is my breakdown

    Bunnymark: 58,00030fps

    Devilmark: 15,00030fps

    DevilParticle: 65,00030fps

    The reason I suspect that DevilParticle is higher is because the BM has more math logic happening.

    Maybe C2 should have spritebatches too?

  • I thought C2 did something like this already? Still, it would be awesome if there were a way to have a simpler sprite object that could render even faster, for bullets and that sort of thing.

    Super particles?

  • Construct 2 has had a batching system since the WebGL renderer was introduced (2011 I think). That was a long time before PIXI.js even existed.

    The 'Particles' object does use a faster rendering method in WebGL mode.

    Do you think it would be possible to overlay image editors in Construct 3?

    There's times where I have to use image points to connect parts of sprites together, and it's pretty gruelling and trial and error when I can't see the other sprites.

    Also can I put an order for Construct 3 already? Can't wait, especially since it can import C2 projects.

    It sounds a bit crazy, but I'd put in a pre-order now. Kickstarter?

  • Nesteris TiAm Guys, it will be a while before business model for c3 will be made.

  • I too would preorder C3 - linux64 ... that is if you make the preorder a special lower price deal.

    Already own a personal C2 license.

    The price/upgrading information is of course not out yet. We will have to wait and see

    I just cant wait. C2 is completely broken when emulated in wine.

  • I assume linux C3 is being made possible because of the open sourcing of .net?

  • Its now interesting to know that words from a developer whose game is top on scirra's showcase the next penelope .....and that is my favourite .....i saw on ither forums people asked him to port his game and answer was same......if he is not going with this tool again so that is a point to consider for me and scirra . I dont know why they dont make a native app build feature . A reason that i didnt buy c2 cause game always built in html. I have no complain for game devlopment in c2 that are best in this time from any game makertool . Things will b awesome if i can make my games direct for my android pfone in .apk .

    I will definitely buy construct 3 if this engine will have native game dev support . Please dont make again a html5 engine cause c2 is already there! Now i have lots of expectation for c3 .

    Thanks

    ... works great on windows...

    Edit: Sorry, couldn't help myself, just had to state the obvious....

    Yeah, exporter would be nice, but as noted through this post and others like it, it is not going to happen...

    C3 is the much needed overhaul of the Interface, the underlying engine will still be C2.
