    I'm not sure this is even a bug. It was working fine till some point. I removed all my added events till yesterdays version but still it loads as a black screen. So I guess I should be looking at something else, but i have no idea what.

  • Can you link to the online version which does not work? It could be a server problem. Could you also check the browser error console and report any errors that are there?


    --old version

    --black screen version

    if it were a server issue wouldn't my local appache show it properly?


    I get this error in the console:

    Uncaught TypeError: Property 'w' of object [object Object] is not a function c2runtime.js:199

    rb c2runtime.js:199

    b.load c2runtime.js:71

    b c2runtime.js:58

    $a c2runtime.js:112

    (anonymous function)

    l jquery-2.0.0.min.js:4

    c.fireWith jquery-2.0.0.min.js:4

    x.extend.ready jquery-2.0.0.min.js:4

    S jquery-2.0.0.min.js:4


    Since working backwards by deleting stuff didn't work, i'll try adding till i get to the error.

  • I found what the problem is.

    The event

    <img src="" border="0" />

    starts the issue, but it doesn't go away unless you remove the relevant object as well... that's why i couldn't find it in the first place... i just removed the events from the event sheet.

    ...and yes as always it was the last thing I added...

    If I can provide anything else useful please advise.


    what seems to break the script is the call DropDownList.SelectedIndex

    which i'm pretty sure i've used before but i'll do some more testing and see.

  • Can you reproduce this in an empty .capx as per the bug report guidelines? That would prove you have found the issue and that it is not something else in your project. It looks like it might be the minifier breaking that expression, so I made a tweak for the next build anyway, which might fix it.

  • will do !

    Will get back to you as soon as I have it ready.

    thx for your time.

  • ...and i was so sure i had it... It works just fine on its own.

    Link to uploaded project

    link to capx

    both preview and on browser work just fine.

    Please close this post. I'll try and find the combination where this happens and get back to you with a proper bug post if this is indeed a bug.

  • Out of curiosity, does it work if you don't minify on export?

    I loaded up an old game to work on tonight, and previews work great, but black screen after export. My suspects were Random Seed plugin, and the old pathfinder plugin, and the list box control. (which I see in your screenshot)

    Exporting without minifying fixed my problem, so I gave up looking for now. Pathfinder and random seed worked in a test project alone.

    Edit: Just ran a test capx, and listbox worked minimized alone.

  • By unchecking the minify option everything works fine for me as well.

    I've tried multiple combinations on new capx so far to pinpoint when the minify will break the script but haven't had any luck yet. Must be some combination that i haven't figured out...

    Note: All the plugins i'm using work very well on their own minified or not...

  • I'm having this problem too, but disabling Minify isn't solving.

    Your exported works fine on Dropbox, so it must be a problem with your host. Post the exported link for us to try.
