    I spent several hours starting a project the other day. After coming back to it today, it fails to load. A popup error happens (see details below).

    Attach a Capx

    capx is attached

    Description of Capx

    When this capx is opened in construct2, this error pops up and the project fails to load.

  • Sorry, there's nothing we can do to fix this without the steps to reproduce, it's just a corrupt project and we have no idea how it got like that in the first place. Also since you're still on r178 there's a chance we already fixed it in r184, so please make sure you're using the latest version of C2 before reporting bugs.
