It works for me... it did crash a lot, but it really looks like it has potential. If they can get the bugs out of it that is.

The layout is slow to work with though. I hope they switch to a normal toolbar and a menu system.

Half of the application is a major step forward and half of it is a major step back. Why?

The interface feels clumsy, it's just a shame that behind the clumsy interface is a nice hardware accelerated runtime. I'm pretty disappointed with the fact that you cant import animations like in MMF2 though, that and you cant import PNG's and keep the alpha channel intact.

Sooo request the feature of being able to import/copy-paste alpha channel pics? I'm sure they'd be glad to implement such an useful feature.

Hmm, for some weird reason the Construct topic has been locked. I would've thought there'd be plenty of legitimate jobs for the admins to do rather than go round randomly locking topics for no reason?

Anyway, seems Construct has gone open-source now. Could be good news for the bugginess of it all, if anybody with coding knowledge could look at the code and look for fixes. Although it kinda feels like Scirra throwing in the towel to Clickteam now HA for MMF2 is on the cards.

Whoa!

Part 1: they start making Construct. People are sceptic.
Part 2: details are given. Hardware acceleration and sweet stuff. People become interested.
Part 3: public betas crash a lot, people lose interest because of this.
Part 4: Clickteam comes with hardware acceleration, interest in Construct now seems totally lost.
Part 5: Scirra notices the fallback and go to plan B, which seems to be... open-source!

I did NOT expect this last part. Pretty smart of them.

Actually...
The reason they released it as Open Source was because of the risk that I will release it as open source...

An interesting turn of events. Will there be other MMF clones out there now?
