Construct 2 License File



Construct 2 can be downloaded and installed to any computer for free, including site-wide at non-commercial institutions like schools. Without a license, it runs as the Free Edition. This has the following limitations:




Construct 2 License File



Individuals may use a standard license for commercial purposes up to a revenue limit of $5000. Once revenues associated with creations made with Construct 2 exceed $5000 (including associated advertising/promotion) a business license must be purchased. However, no business license is necessary before that point.


If you purchase from Steam, then Steam will manage the license. If you want to install your copy of Construct 2 on another computer, just install Steam, log in and download Construct 2 again. The rest of this section applies to buying directly from our site, which involves a license file instead of using Steam.


If you've made a purchase directly from Scirra (rather than from Steam), you will be sent a redeem key by email. This is a special code you can enter to the Scirra Store and get your license. If you want to buy a license for someone else, you can give them the redeem key and they can then get a license from the store with their own name and email address on it. This also works if you want to buy licenses for a number of people, e.g. your employees or colleagues: you will receive a number of redeem keys, which you can then give to each individual.


Once you have redeemed your purchase from the Scirra Store, you can download your Construct 2 license, which is a file called c2license.txt. You simply need to copy this folder in to either the install directory or My Documents. Restart Construct 2 and it should launch as the licensed version: the purchaser name should appear on the start page and About dialog, Free edition should disappear from the title bar, and the free edition limits should be removed. Alternatively, you can place your license file wherever you like and locate it by clicking Load license file in the About dialog.


Unless a license is purchased for an organisation, the license is for the individual rather than their computer. This means you can use your licensed copy of Construct 2 on as many computers as you like, so long as you are the only one using it. Other people must buy their own license. Remember Construct 2 can be used as portable software (see Installing Construct 2). You can put your license file in the install directory on a removable drive and take your licensed copy of Construct 2 to any computer.


You must not share your license file! Keep it to yourself like you do with serial numbers for other software. Also, the license file contains some of your personal information, so it is certainly preferable to keep it private.


I've bought the business license of construct 2 but it fails. It always say "A license file for Contruct 2 was found, but there was an error loading it. Construct 2 has reverted to free edition." ITS NOT FAIR! I've bought it for dolllars but it fails. FIX THIS PLEASE


Once you get a Personal license, all the limits are removed. You can use all Construct 2's features and make games as large as you like. You also get extra sound effects, music and sprite packs to help you get started making games!


You can also use a Personal license for commercial purposes, up to a limit of $5000. That means if you're an indie dev, you can make up to $5000 revenue from using Construct 2 (for example, by selling games or supporting them with adverts) before you need to get a Business license. Hopefully once you've made $5000 the Business license is easily affordable!


Licenses for organisations must have the name of an organisation rather than the name of a person. They are for specific computers, but any number of people can use the license so long as the license is only ever used on that computer.


The majority of you will get by just fine with a Personal license. Some people will compare the Construct 2 Business license to the most expensive versions of other software. Don't be fooled! You don't need a Business license unless the answer to one of these questions is YES:


If you're buying a lot of licenses for an organisation, we can issue a site-wide license which is heavily discounted compared to buying individual licenses. If you're interested, contact us at licensehelpiiw@scirra.com and we'll see what we can do for you.


If you are buying on Steam, the license system is a little different. Steam handles licensing for you. If you want to install your copy of Construct 2 on another computer, just install Steam, log in and download Construct 2 again. The rest of this article applies to buying directly from our site, which involves a license file instead of using Steam.


If you've made a purchase directly from our site (rather than Steam), you will be sent a redeem key by email. This is a special code you can enter to the Scirra Store and get your license. If you want to buy a license for someone else, you can give them the redeem key and they can then get a license from the store with their own name and email address on it.


Once you have entered the redeem key in to the Scirra Store, you can download your Construct 2 license which is a file called c2license.txt. To start using it, simply copy it to My Documents, or copy it to the install directory (where Construct2.exe is also located). Restart Construct 2 and it should find your license. You will know it has worked if 'Free edition' no longer appears in the title bar, and the About dialog will show your license information.


Remember a license with a person's name is for the individual: you can use it on as many computers as you like, so long as you are the only person using it. On the other hand, a license with an organisation's name is for the computer(s): any number of people can use it, so long as it is only used on the intended machine(s).


Don't forget Construct 2 is portable. If you have an individual license, you can install it to a USB stick, copy your license file to the install directory, and take your licensed Construct 2 with you wherever you go. Don't forget it's only for your use, and this is not allowed with organisation licenses. You must not let anyone else use the license!


Obviously, you must never share your license. Keep it to yourself like serial numbers for other software! Your license also contains some of your personal information, so I'm sure you don't want that to fall in to the hands of anyone untrustworthy.


Everyone who purchases a license also gets a medal on their avatar, and a badge for their profile. If you have purchased a license and still have not received your badge, send an email to licensehelpiiw@scirra.com with your transaction ID and username and we can issue your badges.


Construct is an HTML5-based 2D video game engine developed by Scirra Ltd.[4][5] It is aimed primarily at non-programmers,[6] allowing quick creation of games through visual programming. First released as a GPL-licensed DirectX 9 game engine for Microsoft Windows with Python programming on October 27, 2007, it later became proprietary software with Construct 2, as well as switching its API technology from DirectX to NW.js and HTML5, as well as removing Python and adding JavaScript support and its plugin SDK in 2012,[7] and eventually switched to a subscription-based model as a web app.[8]


The primary method of programming games and applications in Construct is through 'event sheets', which are similar to source files used in programming languages. Each event sheet has a list of events, which contain conditional statements or triggers. Once these are met, actions or functions can be carried out.[9] Event logic such as OR and AND, as well as sub-events (representing scope) allow for sophisticated systems to be programmed without learning a comparatively more difficult programming language.[10] Groups can be used to enable and disable multiple events at once, and to organize events.[11]


Construct has the ability to export to several platforms that provide offline and native application behavior: Windows, MacOS and both 32-bit and 64-bit Linux are supported by exporting to NW.js. Doing this will allow the user to incorporate several features that HTML5 applications do not normally support, such as file I/O.[14] On October 23, 2012, Scirra announced full support for exporting to Windows 8 Metro applications, including the incorporation of in-app purchases, 'snap' view states, roaming data, sharing, live tiles, touch input and accelerometer and inclinometer input.[16] Support for exporting to Windows 10 Universal apps was added on August 26, 2015.[17]


Construct 2 is the second major release of the Construct engine. Major changes include DirectX being replaced with NW.js, allowing projects to be exported to platforms other than Microsoft Windows, including HTML5, Mac OS and Linux. The licensing system also moved from GPLv2 to a proprietary license with a free version available for download.[28]


On May 23, 2019, JavaScript coding was announced as a separate add-on, but was free for all users who had a paying license before September 2, 2019.[43] The feature was added with r157 on July 5, 2019.[44]


On August 14, 2019, a new version of the arcade was released, with it being renamed to the Construct Arcade. Changes to the platform includes a new layout, stability improvements, publisher profiles, a way to view analytics of published games on the website and links to other storefronts.[47]


Public repositories on GitHub are often used to share open source software. For your repository to truly be open source, you'll need to license it so that others are free to use, change, and distribute the software.


We created choosealicense.com, to help you understand how to license your code. A software license tells others what they can and can't do with your source code, so it's important to make an informed decision.
