Seriously, we need a new topic about this.

Geez, release 2 is out already. This app is pretty cool and comes with a LOT of (still pretty limited) objects.

I must say there are some odd bugs (instance #3 of an EditBox has different properties!) and crashes every once in a while, but a lot of them seem to get fixed within the span of less than a week (some I posted were fixed the same day)! Damn, they're motivated.

Yeh been receiving a lot of criticism here for some reason. Very impressed with the first build - lots of crashes and everything, but they seem to be fixing the bugs and problems and things. Took me a while to get used to the layout, but after I did it was pretty easy to use and get the hang of

I think the layout is great, a lot snappier and intuitive than MMF2.

It's just the constant crashes at the moment.

The 2d physics engine is what has me really interested in this. The interface is a little wonky for me, since I'm so used to MMF2. Construct's picture editor is just unusable though, reminds me of MMF 1.5's. Also the whole shareable event-sheet features has me excited too, no more copying and pasting events over and over since I cant use qualifiers in global events... :I

AndyUK: send a detailed bug report! They are trying their best to remove crashes and bugs.

Also, build 3 is out already.

I agree, it's pretty naff.

It was quite weird, I mean the picture editor especially was such a blatant rip of MMF 1.5

The features and capabilities of Construct are great, I just really... I don't feel like getting used to a new interface. It might not be so bad if it wasn't like a poor rip off of MMF, because at least then I'd be learning from scratch, rather then going to do something and expect something to happen that doesn't.

All and all, it looks like it's got a lot of potential. Someone really needs to work with the interface, and/or accept feedback strictly about the interface, because it just doesn't feel clean.

I really hated the picture editor, very hard to work with. They should've copied graphics-gale more or something. I don't like the flashback to MMF1.5's picture editor either .

Best bit is the smooth runtime

I don't understand why they would even release this as a beta. It so incredibly buggy with very blatant errors, surely it would be better to release a more stable version for us to find the less blatant bugs. I've just played around with it now, and the amount of stuff that went wrong was quite ridiculous.

It has potential if it's ironed out fully. The runtime is excellently smooth and the effects are lovely, if not as customisable as I'd hoped they'd be.

I imagine they left a bunch of blatantly obvious bugs in to give people who test it some sense of importance, so they get all 'I like this product I contributed to its development' and then buy it and stuff when it's actually released.

Using buggy software doesn't give me a sense of importance rather than annoyance.
