Construct 2 v269 Closes Randomly

  • > During the testing the following steps seem like a very consistent way of making C2 crash:

    > 1. Clone Object Type on Layout

    > 2. Paste it in Layout

    > 3. Double Click new object.

    > 4. Duplicate an animation

    > 5. Click new animation

    > 6. Add frames from gif or just an empty frame.

    > 7. Close Editor

    > 8. Save

    > 9. Move Windows Taskbar.

    > 10. Crash

    I tried following these steps 3 times in a row in the same project and it worked fine. However no starting project was provided, so I just used the Ghost Shooter tutorial version and cloned the player.

    I'm afraid unless there's a way I can observe the issue, which is best achieved by finding reliable steps to reproduce the problem, then it will be extremely difficult to make any progress on this issue.

    This problem usually happens when there are sprites with many animations on the screen.

    Just now "here in Brazil" in less than 30 minutes, closed 3 times exactly when I sent save.

    I have plenty of setup to work with any project in the engine.

    Working on a pixel art project, I don't even remember how many times it closed, but in the "images are much bigger" vector project, it closes several times.

  • Once again, it's difficult to make progress if people don't mention which version they are using. The latest version is r274. Did you test that version? Is it still occurring there or is it fixed?

    I am using version 272

    I updated Construct 2 to beta 274 and the same problem happened, in both videos I used the same project and did the exact same thing and on the first try Construct 2 was closed.

    So I hope it is clear where the problem occurs and can be resolved, it is very annoying that this problem has arisen in recent months and several times lost a lot of time to redo because the engine closed out of nowhere.

    I hope this is not a deliberate mistake to force people to migrate to C3.

  • Just want to second the above experience — pressing alt-tab while a large project is saving, or just after, usually crashes here.

    Saving doesn't always show a progress bar for me, so I can't tell when the saving is complete, but if I just wait a few seconds after saving before running the preview or switching applications, it's all good.

    (using latest Construct beta 274, applies to last few versions as well)

  • Same here. Alt-tabbing while a big project is open will makes the editor crash very often. Sometimes it also crash during a preview.

  • Using version 250 the engine did not close alone again.
