  • Problem Description

    Hello, what appears to be happening for me is that in WP8 Internet Explorer the touch end event will fire while a touch is still active. The touch down will remain active for about 1 or 2 seconds then the touch end will fire. This happens pretty consistently.

    Sometimes it will work correctly once in a while, where I'm able to keep holding down. I've noticed that if I hold 2 fingers, the touch end doesn't fire.

    I'm not fully sure if this is a hardware issue, I have a Nokia Lumia 1020. Running Windows Phone ver 8.10.14176.243.

    This works in other browsers tested (Firefox, Chrome, iOS, Android)

    Attach a Capx


    Description of Capx

    Simple platformer where touching left side of screen moves left, and right side moves right.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • Touch the screen and player will move.
    • Hold touch and player will still move.
    • After a second or 2, touch end will fire and the player will stop moving.

    Observed Result

    Touch end fires and player stops moving.

    Expected Result

    Touch end should fire only when finger is released.

  • I can reproduce, but I don't think it's a Construct 2 bug. Our code is pretty simple and just triggers events when the browser events fire. I'd suggest posting this to Microsoft at
