R185b - Project Export Bug - Common sprites not Exported

  • Problem Description

    I have project where 1 or 2 common images are used across multiple sprite sheets. In the attached Example: The Bottle image is common across two Sprites (Level1 and Level2). When Exported (I did for Windows Universal App), only the bottle from Sprite#1 is getting exported to Level1-Sheet.png, whereas the Sprite#2 bottle is not!!

    If I replace the bottle with a different image then the Export spritesheet contains the new image.

    This is causing blank space in the exported game!

    Not sure if this issue started from the R185b, as I dont remember having this issue in the past.

    Attach a Capx

    Description of Capx

    Simple CAPX with two sprite Sheets1: Level1 and Level2

    Both sprites have common Bottle images.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

  • Closing as by design, this is image deduplication as described in export-time optimisations.
