Well, since a crash Construct 2 had yesterday, I have this problem with my game:
Those big black squares are particle systems which failed to be particles. Indeed, this is what's supposed to happen:
What's even weirder is that this bug occurs only on that specific layout. It does not occur anywhere else.
Attach a Capx
Here is the CAPX from my game:
https://mega.nz/#!ZxtyjYTQ!3UdE9Fj3PO_J ... _Uv_DY0teM
Description of Capx
This Capx is basically my game at this point in time. As I couldn't reproduce the bug on another capx.
Steps to Reproduce Bug
Before you begin anything, I should tell you how my game works or you won't know how to actually reproduce what I'm showing you. You use the arrow keys to move left and right and jump. You use the down key tho transform quickly or press shift to have a mini menu of what you're actually selecting. Like this:
Also, why you should select the shuriken is because these particle system indicate when you can attack. They appear when the shuriken has reached a certain angular speed that gives him the power to attack the ennemies. And to reach that speed, you have to maintain the up arrow key while in the air.
There are two ways of having this bug: Loading this layout directly or loading via another layout.
- Open CAPX
- Open the concerned layout located in Layouts\Test\Game Test
- Hit Play
This method should show an error message like this one:
Then , it will stay black for a few seconds and show this one:
Then start the layout with some of my particle system bugging (like my life system at the top left of the screen) until they get updated, or even some not appearing at all (like the concerned particle system which do not appear at all).
All of this is demonstrated in this gif:
Now the second method:
- Open CAPX
- Open the "new game" layout located at Layout\Global Layouts\New Game
- Hit Play
This should load for a very short while, not show any kind of error, and most of my particle systems will work just fine. However, if you go forward until you reach the leap. Before that, the particle system wont show. Like this:
It's quite weird because on this layout and only this layout, my particle systems are glitchy.
This is what's supposed to happen:
- Chrome: (YES)
- FireFox: (YES)
- Internet Explorer: (YES)
