  • Unfortunately the .capx you've uploaded uses a non-standard plugin from rexrainbow.

  • as far as i can remember i only use the function plugin that might be from rexrainbow.

  • kaiko

    That's what I was referring to

    I'm afraid the rules don't allow the submission of bug reports that include non-standard plugins, so unless you remove the plugin, Ashley won't be able to investigate.

  • ok, made a new version with built in function, i guess i've been using functions for ages never realizing its built in nowadays.

    the issue could be that its trying to load a picture that doesn't exist due to an empty var and then it uses last loaded image instead?

    there is something going wrong in display_games() function

  • do i need to pick an object instance after i just created it with createobject?

    it seems only sometimes it sets the right instance variables after createobject.

  • yah, this got to be a bug,even if i hardcode links i don't get it to work as i think it should,it somehow mixes up images loaded for different sprites...

  • the bug seems to be: when using sprite->load image from url

    in conjunction with an instance object, it is automatically loaded for all of theinstances of this object, not just the one you picked.

  • another thing i noticed, also it doesn't do a request to load the image rom the url, when i monitor network traffic it doesn't make a call externally, seems it just picks an image it previously loaded image it had in cache and displays it instead.

  • the bug seems to be: when using sprite->load image from url

    in conjunction with an instance object, it is automatically loaded for all of theinstances of this object, not just the one you picked.

    That is by design, because Sprites all share the same image sources to save memory. Closing.

  • i c, can you recommend any workarounds?

    is there a workaround for this? in order to write dynamic and flexible code, it is essential to set individual images to instances.

    perhaps a setting in C2 with this feature on off.

    as i'm writing a game menu that is populated by a list from a database i need the instances to be able to grow shrink based on the number of items in list, which works but as soon as i assign an unique image to the icon , all instances get the same image.obviously renders the menu useless ass all icons are the same but points to different games.

  • +1 for this.

    Lets say you design a social game with profile pictures, we definitely need this feature.

    We can't share someone's profile picture across all friends.

    Workaround was to pre-create individual sprites.

    But, it only works when the number of friends is a fixed number for everyone.

    Again, everyone has a different number of friends..

    So, the design should be improved.

  • exactly , even if i understand the need to save memory, there should be a way to override the save memory feature to make more dynamic content, your example with profile pics is an excellent example of why said function should work.
