    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Open Knight animation

    2. Create or edit an animation

    3. Modify origin or crop

    4. Close animation panel

    5. Repeat step 1 to 4 many times

    Observed result:

    C2 crashes randomly when closing the animations panel (most of the time on the second modification.

    Expected result:

    No crashes

    Browsers affected:

    Not relevant

    Operating system & service pack:

    Windows 8 64 bits

    Construct 2 version:

    rc139 64bit steam version

    Note :

    I wanted to try on a steam free version of construct 2 but have no key... Also can't find how to launch the 32 bit version on steam to check if the problem occurs too

    Any solutions ?


  • I've edited many of your anims for the past 10 minutes and I can't get it to crash.

    Exact, precise steps with a minimum .capx would be better.

    BTW I'm using the latest beta - maybe worth trying, see if you still encounter problems.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your help.

    I found a 100% occurence crash :

    1. Open Knight Animation

    2. Crop all Idle animation (yeah even if it's already cropped)

    3. Close animation (no crash)

    4. Close C2 => C2 crashes... (same error as before)

    Also, if I only edit 1 frame at a time, close the animation, save, and repopen the animation to edit the next frame, C2 does not crashes.

    I'm guessing it might be a hardware problem or driver problem (computer bought in China, maybe some RAM problem ? GeForce GT 555M with latest driver.

    I'll try with the beta (hope it works on Steam, it's downloading atm...)

    I'll let you know.

  • Hi again,

    Changed to beta (rc142), problem still occurs.

    Actually, the problem does not come from the capx. Here are the step I do to reproduce the crash on my computer with clean capx :

    1. Launch C2 and create new project

    2. Create new Sprite

    3. Import the run frame strip 13x2 (

    4. Crop all

    5. Set origin on all images to foot

    6. Close animation

    7. Close C2

    Result : C2 crashes. Happens 100% of the time.

    If I only change 3 or 4 origines, the problem does not occur.

    I tried to removed some RAM and only leave 4Gb out of 16Gb but no change.

    I also tried it in safe mode. Problem still occurs.

    Here is the event log from windows if it helps :

    If by any chance the developers of C2 read this, might it be possible to get a key for the non Steam version to try this problem on a fresh install ? (I have the Personnal Steam version)


  • Crashing on close is a known problem for which a bug report has already been filed; closing as duplicate. Please post a new report if you can reliably get a crash in the animation editor which does not involve closing C2 as a step.

  • Try Construct 3

  • Thanks for the reply.

    At the moment, I can edit a full sprite, add as much animation and change them as much as I want. But as soon as I close the animation panel and try to change a property or edit another sprite, C2 will crash. So I just edit one by one and close C2 after each animation edit.

    I'm guessing it comes from my computer configuration (since the steps I described first still happens to me but not to others). I need to format it soon anyway so I'll let you know if the problem still persists after a fresh install.

  • I really dont undersand why people are buy this broken piece of crap ..a definite time crashes every frigging minute...the website works better than this broken software.
