  • This issue is always caused by broken graphics card drivers. Double-check you have the latest drivers available - check directly from the manufacturer.

  • Try Construct 3

  • I am running the latest drivers: they're supplied by Apple.

  • I think I have discovered the problem.

    When I attempt to run Construct 2 within a virtual machine within Mac OS 10.9, using Parallels and my Boot Camp installation, the crash occurred.

    When I ran Construct 2 after booting directly to Windows 8, the crashes didn't happen.

    Apologies for reporting a non-bug.
