Construct just saved a 91gb file

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • I was running construct, and I had a game I'm working on open, in my settings I have made it save a backup every minute.

    I left it open and went to do something else. When I came to save a file on my hard disk it was completely full, strange, i thought, since i had around 100gb left last time i checked. I then realised what it was:

    pretty odd seeing as before that the size of the file was around 800kb

    when i went back into construct it crashed horribly, presumably after it ran out of space to save. It sapped every remaining byte of my hard disk.

    this has to be the funniest bug i've ever seen, and fairly serious aswell. plz fix

  • Dont tell me the memory exploit is still at loose...

  • HAHAHAHAHA!!! THAT was funny! Well, this sure is a high priority bug!

  • Hopefully its just a bug with the "save a backup every minute" stuff

  • Its weird though because I've had that setting on for ages and it's never done anything like this. If i didnt have that setting on construct would be completely unusable (with crashes etc)

    It's obviously rare, but if it has happened once it can happen again

  • Whilst it's amusing there's obviously a save problem (an infinite loop) going on..

    Do you have any ideas what could've caused it or if you'd done anything (made a family, created an object, etc) just before it?

    Thanks

  • nope, in fact i think i did absolutly nothing other than open the file, then go away and do something else, i can upload the latest backup before that if you want

  • You're using the 0.96.2 version yes?

    yes

  • It must be related to auto-saving because I don't use that feature and have never had a size issue in any version.

  • eh.. since only one person has had this issue it could be related to anything.

  • I'm not sure if the upload forum will allow to upload that 91gb file or not.

  • It must be related to auto-saving because I don't use that feature and have never had a size issue in any version.

    I tried that its not the auto-saving.

    What I meant was, that when it is enabled, it allows a memory leak under certain conditions.

    Whatever the actual cause may be, let's hope it's found.
