project failed to open - your thoughts

  • hello! I don't have time to make a solid bug report with trying to reproduce it, so I will do it this way to see if other people have had the same experience and maybe even advice.

    • downloaded a .capx from the forum (so I guess it was made in C2)
    • opened and edited it in C3
    • saved it to dropbox on computer 2
    • opened it from dropbox on computer 1
    • C3 does: downloading, importing, message: "failed to open project. Check if it is a valid Construct 2 single-file (.capx) project."

    If this happens again, I will see if I can make time to make a bug report.

    - downloaded a .capx from the forum (so I guess it was made in C2)

    - opened and edited it in C3

    - saved it to dropbox on computer 2

    - opened it from dropbox on computer 1

    - C3 does: downloading, importing, message: "failed to open project. Check if it is a valid Construct 2 single-file (.capx) project."

    If this happens again, I will see if I can make time to make a bug report.

    How are you saving it (extension)?

  • in dropbox it has .capx extension.

  • in dropbox it has .capx extension.

    I don't understand. C3 doesn't save as a .capx - it's a c3p. The format is different - .capx is mainly xml whereas .c3p is json.

    Sorry if I'm missing something /misunderstanding. Could you clarify?

  • I saved the capx from the forum (someone's dropbox) directly to my dropbox.

    Opening it from dropbox in C3 (today) is not working.

    Did I do something incorrectly?

    Trying to understand the editing and saving aspect of your OP.

    You say you originally opened/imported a .capx into C3, editied it, then saved it to dropbox on a different computer(?). If you saved from C3 then it wouldn't be a .capx.

    Do you see my confusion? (maybe I'm having a bad Sunday!).

  • You are right, when saving in C3, it becomes c3p.

    So I share your confusion now.

    I will then just pay attention if this ever happens again, thanks.
