This release is a maintenance update to fix some bugs, make some tweaks, and also update all the documentation in preparation for a stable release. If all goes to plan, the next update will be a stable one, then we'll begin the next cycle of adding new features through beta releases again.

Please make sure you report any issues you've noticed to the Bugs forum. Issues reported before the stable release can be included in the stable update, but if you report afterwards you may have to wait a couple of months for it to reach the next stable update after that. There have been lots of new features lately so please stay vigilant and make any reports about issues you think should be investigated!

Edit: we're also introducing an experimental new torrent download option. If the download is going slow for you, try clicking 'Alternative torrent download' beneath the download button.

Changelog

System trigger 'On load failed'. Useful for detecting if a save slot hasn't been saved to yet.

Scirra Arcade plugin help link now opens its new manual entry

Add
Change

Rest of manual updated to describe all r125 features

Change

Node-webkit: no longer disables software rendering. Should help fix some severe driver issues on Mac/Linux - it should look correct, but run a lot slower, which is probably better than looking wrong and running quickly. Advise any users who complain of poor performance to update their drivers.

Change

Updated 'Webcam' example to include a 'Download' button

Change

When making backups of folder-based projects, Construct 2 now writes the backup to temp then copies that to the backup location, rather than backing up directly to the backup folder. This may help fix some freezes during backup (if services like Dropbox had tried to start reading the backup before C2 had finished writing it).

Change

Keyboard: StringFromKeyCode expression used Javascript's fromCharCode() method, which proved mostly useless. Now we use our own lookup table to convert key codes to strings, which should fix basically all non-alphanumeric keys. Note this was tested on a UK keyboard, so please watch out for differences with other keyboard layouts. (Note it also may not be possible to make one conversion which works for all keyboards in the world.)

Change

Renamed system trigger 'On loading finished' to 'On loader layout complete' to clarify it from the savegame 'On load complete' trigger

Change

Updated and renamed AppMobi content to now refer to the Intel XDK (since Intel acquired appMobi's tools)

Bug Fix

Cloning or copy/pasting various project elements could create things which did not work properly with save/load or the Persist behavior

Bug Fix

User Media object: worked around a bug in Firefox's WebRTC implementation, should now work with Firefox 20+

Bug Fix

Possible 'console is undefined' Javascript error when using continuous preview on IE

Bug Fix

Possible blank screen if using continuous preview immediately without first previewing normally

Bug Fix

Sprite: 'Load image from URL' did not always update all instances

Bug Fix

Sprite: 'Start animation' in an 'On animation finished' trigger could make the object resize incorrectly
