So, Construct 2 turned out to be a huge hassle to work with. The non-coding nature of the scripting made things difficult once I wanted it to do anything that wasn’t built-in.
I’ve played with SFML.Net (the .Net bindings to SFML) and have gotten some results quickly and easily. I’m very excited about it.
I’m working on my shmup first this time, but I’m varying from “128×128 all the things” by making it 512×128. It’s a Defender clone!
Isn’t it nice to finally find something that works?
