Pool game is coming close to being finished kinda. But construct 2 issues kinda.

So far I have gotten most of the code done for the pool game, incorperating various controls, various input methods, and various players has been a bit difficult. Especially for various platforms.

Currently the pool game is soundless, so is various of the games, I have in project dreamout, The other thing missing from the pool game and cups game is a main menu, currently I will have the pool game work with 1 game mode, of 1 team vs 1 team in a single player, 1v1,2v1, 2v2, &  3v1 mode. Currently I am working on the multiplayer menu & incorperating all the amounts of players when it comes to gameplay. I am rather close to a finished result in this regaurds, but sound is the major thing missing, it won't take long and it will be one of the final steps in polishing this up some.

Currently the whole project is getting close to 1120 events, which when looking at what all the code is doing it is easy to see why, especially when you take into consideration that I utilize the function system for my controls, something that should actually make it easier but because of construct 2 developers refusal to actually utilize unknown variables into called functions it makes it difficult to actually do. So instead of having a loop index value being the only difference between two unquie objects code I have to duplicate code regularly.

Example 1:

on p0b0 if pool_cue.pID = 0 simulate movement left on pool_cue

on p1b0 if pool_cuep.ID = 1 simulate movement left on pool_cue
on p2b0 if pool_cuep.ID = 2 simulate movement left on pool_cue
on p3b0 if pool_cuep.ID = 3 simulate movement left on pool_cue

Example 2:
for(int playerID = 0: playerID != playerindexConnected; playerID++)
         on "p"&loopindex("playerID")&"b0" if pool_cue.pID = loopindex("playerID") simulate movement left on pool_cue

What does this mean? Well basically the first example 1 is what I am forced to do because of their restrictions. The second example is what I can't do, but want to do because its simpler, eats up less events, and makes code much easier to read for me, much more cleaner to have 1 complicated piece of code rather than what is there.

I have brought this up countless times to construct 2 development team and all they answer with is will not implement, or update, or patch. Which really boils down to their response with anything till something is totally broken which they restrict rather than fix problems usually. With using construct 2 I have had to more or less work around the engine and everything they do to restrict the users, which is a shame from a game engine. It is a good one when it works right, but it has various performance issues with its objects even with the simplest of objects. You are constantly working around it for better framerates, example: Don't use text objects, spritefonts are better, Don't use spritefonts, sprites are better. Don't use sprites backgrounds are better for processing, Don't use patch, sprites are better. Don't use sprites, tilemaps are better. You will always be working around it in some way.

Issues with video plugin, video plugin has many issues. One of which being you have to use the same video 3x if you want it compatible with the most platforms, as some don't support video formats apparently. This means 3x the file size, so you better learn to compress it real good without losing quality because it re-loads the video each time it has to play.

The debugging tools don't tell you much about the source of any kind of framerate drops, and it becomes very difficult figguring out all the objects causing dropped frames, when you have even more than 10 objects, and sometimes its the code and how it is done to work around construct 2 issues. For instance the fact that there is no way to zoom with the camera, you have to scale the layers or layout(for pause menu's you might want to do just layers same thing with hud concepts you want to keep the same size no matter what). Sometimes it is just simply having too many layers, each layer creates a viewport, each viewport can take up heavy processing especially if you are messing with the scaling which you might be forced into doing, and you will want it to lerp the zoom to create smooth zoom effects.

So often not only do I have to find ways around things but I have to re-optimize the code and simplify it to as much as I can, often this process can take a long while of re-working plenty of code to bring the events down but rather dealing with complications and big bugs from doing this. It can delay a game from being nearly done too being done in years.

Not to mention Dreamout uses third party plugins & offical non-built in plugins made by scirra for various platform support, which are very much incomplete, often creating arrays to work around them.
