New this build: CocoonJS improvements, including basic support for Game Center on iOS! Note this support is currently experimental, so please let us know how it works out for you. There's also support for custom event sheet color themes, allowing you to choose an easier-on-the-eyes darker theme if you so prefer. We'll probably be providing some additional stock themes to choose from in future so you don't have to pick all the colors yourself.

Also note CocoonJS accelerated physics has been turned off for the time being, so your projects aren't broken while Ludei are working on the bug fixes. Hopefully we'll be able to turn it on again soon.

Please also remain vigilant against scams asking for your Construct 2 license. We never send unsocilited emails asking for licenses.

We're aiming to have a stable update out soon, so please test thoroughly and report any issues you've noticed to the Bugs forum, using the full report template!



New 'Colors' tab in Preferences. This allows you to customise the event sheet view color scheme, and save your theme to a file. Any theme files in the install directory 'Themes' subfolder will be available for loading from the Preferences dialog as well.


CocoonJS object: experimental support for Game Center. Currently only supports submitting scores. We haven't been able to fully test it since it seems to only fully work with a published app and not in the CocoonJS launcher, so let us know how it works out for you. Note Game Center is only available on iOS.


CocoonJS object: ability to retrieve a list of all products available for IAP, with their details such as title and localized price.


CocoonJS object: ability to prompt a dialog to get text input. Useful workaround to the text box form controls not working.


Project bar: right-click and "Auto-import all in folder" option. Automatically import a project file for every file that has been copied in to the project's 'Files' folder in a folder-based project. Note this only imports and does not delete files that have gone missing - you should still delete files from Construct 2 if you wish to remove them.


List object: conditions 'Compare selected text', 'Compare item text at'


WebStorage: conditions to compare key values, either as a text or as a number


We are temporarily rolling back the Physics engine to the older, slower version on CocoonJS. The accelerated physics on CocoonJS had several bugs which broke lots of projects. We will re-enable it when Ludei have fixed the issues, and probably after the next stable release to give it a thorough test run.


Another change to how iframed games handle focus - clicking or touching inside an iframed game should now always give it keyboard focus


Audio file parameters are now sorted alphabetically


CocoonJS: now calls finishPurchase() on completed purchases, which should resolve some IAP issues


The jquery-2.0.0.min.js file now includes a UTF-8 BOM, to work around the extremely fussy WACK tool.

Bug Fix

Changing the type of an instance variable which was already referenced in events could make invalid events which crashed the editor. To avoid this, the 'Type' dropdown in the 'Edit instance variable' dialog is disabled if any events exist referencing the variable.

Bug Fix

Inverted 'Mouse is over object' condition did not always work after save/load

Bug Fix

Parameters dialog: typing a space in a string literal no longer temporarily resets the style to ordinary black text

Bug Fix

Project bar: choosing 'import files' then selecting files already in the project's 'Files' folder did not work correctly. Now it ignores files already added to the project, and automatically imports any selected files that are not in the project.

Bug Fix

Custom movement: 'On vertical step' did not trigger correctly
