I've actually been using Construct 2 for quite sometime now on my older Vista based machine with no issues whatsoever.
I just purchased a new Windows 8 laptop and was anxious to flex its muscle all over C2 when I encountered an issue that I'm fairly positive is not a C2 related bug.
Essentially, I can't see any sprites in any of my layouts, and even if I'm lucky enough to blindly select one I still don't see a blue rectangle or anything of the nature indicating that it's actually in my scene other than the properties change in the tab on the left.
Before anyone asks, yes my graphics drivers (there are 2 display adapters) are up to date. It's worth noting that I notice this behavior not just within my capx, but also even within the startup screen itself for C2:

As an added bonus, here's the Tribes Ascend Launcher UI which as some of you may know, also displays images, but only on my new W8 machine is the background for the UI completely missing:

These are the stats on my machine:
Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU
Nvidia GTX770M 3GB Video
Intel HM87 Mainboard
ScanDisk 64GB SSD
750GB 7200RPM SATA300 HDD
I tried setting the default display adapter to the 770M, but that didn't make any difference. Is there some random web based driver that I'm missing?
Thanks so much for your help.
