Update 23rd October: updated to r108.2 to fix an unforeseen issue with the Windows 8 exporter. Please update to ensure this issue does not affect you.

Just in time for the release of Windows 8 on the 26th October, r108 introduces lots of new features for Windows 8 integration, and as always plenty more on top of that! Be sure to see the intervening changelogs for the full details, but in summary changes since r103.2 include:

  • r104 (27 changes): static and constant event variables, WebGL enabled for mobile devices, Touch object improvements
  • r105 (25 changes): Windows 8 app purchases, better audio support in Safari for iOS 6, 'hide address bar' option
  • r106 (22 changes): a new offline manual shipped with Construct 2, support for Windows 8 IAP, redesigned project export process, Awesomium RC3
  • r107 (14 changes): improved memory management for large projects, performance fix for iPad 3 retina display

Please note the following breaking changes since r103.2. You may be required to make changes to your projects to keep them working the same.
Object counts: when creating objects in subevents, in r103.2 the object count would not be updated until the next top-level event. In r108 the object count is updated immediately.
WebGL shader scaling: the Pulse, Warp, Warp Mask and Warp Ripple effects did not take in to account the layout scale in r103.2. They now scale accordingly in r108.
Setting same animation: in r103.2, if a non-looping animation had finished and you set the same animation with 'play from beginning', the action would be ignored. In r108 the animation will now re-play. Depending on your events, this can make some objects appear to loop their animations even if they are not set to loop. To work around this, double-check your events and avoid setting animations every tick; try adding 'trigger once' to the events that set animations.

If you haven't seen it yet, we've also submitted Construct 2 to Steam Greenlight. Your votes are much appreciated!

As ever there have been a large number of bug fixes since the last stable release, so we encourage all users to upgrade. And, as ever, there's lots more still to come!



Insert Object dialog: added extra help link to each object's manual entry in the description field at the bottom of the dialog


Windows 8 object: updated help link to its manual entry


Letterbox integer scale mode no longer scales down smoothly when the browser window is smaller than the project's window size. It now scales down to fractional zooms like 50% (1/2), 33% (1/3), 25% (1/4) etc. This can sometimes help avoid tiles showing seams when the browser is smaller than the game window.

Bug Fix

Browser: possible glitches in Chrome when requesting fullscreen mode

Bug Fix

Platform: Rotating platform example was broken in r107

Bug Fix

Possible crash dragging layout folders in the project bar

Stable release Just in time for windows 8. Promised given, promised kept. Like i always say "SCIRRA IS THE HARDEST WORKING TEAM ON THE HTML5 GAMING FROMT". I feel proud to have supported them since the early days of the original Construct and be part of such an awesome community. No other software company better deserves to the opportunity be on STEAM than SCIRRA right now.

Great work Scirra! Let us know if we can do anything else to aid in the Steam push! I already liked on Steam! Construct 2 is the future! Woot! AS a follow up to last build.. the layout specific memory management works great and speeds up performance to Luna. Great work guys!!
