Thanks for the post I'm glad you've seen your potential as a programmer - you've come up with some really impressive stuff in Construct. One of the goals of Construct is to teach logic and help interested people move on to coding, so I'm glad it's succeeding in that.
Thank you. And yes, learning C++ is so much more fun and interesting to learn, when you can make something neat happen while you're learning. Making programs that keep a list of student names and grades from a fictional classroom, is something you'd typically be doing reading a textbook, and learning about arrays. Being able to move graphics around the screen, or implement a feature you're actually going to use is a much easier lesson to sit down to.
We're designing C2 with an even more extensible architecture. The aim is to allow third party developers to write runtimes for new platforms. Perhaps that's something you'd be interested in?
Once I'm knowledgeable enough on Android, that is definitely something I would be interested in, if no one beats me to it:)
I didn't hold out much hope, but I searched for the Construct of Android development, and it doesn't exist yet. That would be a dream come true.
move sprite to Touch.x,Touch.y
Sensor.On Change in Orientation;
set sprite.angle to phone.y-axis
oh my God...
That would be great, having construct in other platforms. Just you can scratch iPhone of the list, thanks to the change of Section 3.3.1, not allowing anything without coding in Objective C, C or C++.
But anyway for Android, why don't you try Flash? Oh wait, it's too expensive, starting with 700$ :O
I don't think flash works on it yet, plus the java needed for android is pretty straightforward, I think it would have taken me longer to learn ActionScript
You plug-in contributions were awesome. Can you leave the construct creators your code so they can be included as part of future releases? Especially your strangely named "s" plugin.
That way you can be part of the force here forever.
I used to think things should be made part of the official construct build, but I guess, it's no different than having a list where people can download them, they're no less integrated than the official plugins afterall. But if anyone does want the source code to any of them, PM me, though I warn you the SpriteFont code is one of the ugliest abominations ever spawned, and..kindof embarassing
I'll also try to upload my last version of 's' in plugin form in the near future as well
