Update 29 Nov: there were previously issues with the 32-bit version. This should now be resolved and the download has been updated. Re-download and reinstall if you have been affected by any issues with starting up Construct 2.

Stable update r152 is a significant feature, compatibility and stability update from r146 covering a total of 108 changes. It introduces support for tilemap based games which can be edited from the layout view using the new Tilemap plugin and Tilemap Bar. There is also new support for exporting Windows 8.1 apps, compatibility improvements for Internet Explorer 11 and Tizen, support for multiplatform high-DPI displays, a new default UI theme based on Office 2010, on-by-default autosave, stability improvements, and many other bug fixes.

For the full details of changes since r146, see the intervening build changelogs. In summary this includes:

  • r147 (17 changes): support for Windows 8.1 apps; fixes for IE11
  • r148 (17 changes): new default UI theme; multiplatform high-DPI display support
  • r149 (21 changes): first release of Tilemap support; autosave feature added
  • r150 (22 changes): tilemap support improvements and bug fixes
  • r151 (17 changes): tilemap collision polygons and rotated/flipped tiles; save and load individual instances
  • r151.2 (6 changes): bug fixes

There are further changes in this release (r152) that are detailed in the changelog below.

If the download is going slowly or is problematic, try the Alternative Torrent Download link beneath the Download button.

We strongly recommend all users update to this stable release to take advantage of new features and avoid running in to bugs or compatibility issues we've already fixed. We'll shortly be getting back to our beta releases cycle; if you'd like to try updates and new features sooner and help test them, you can also update to our public beta releases. You can opt-in to beta updates from Preferences, or follow beta release announcements on our Facebook, Twitter or Google+ pages.



New example: Tilemaps (just a simple demo of the Tilemap plugin)


Tilemap plugin: help link now points to its new manual entry


Tilemap bar: right-click menu help link added and now points to its new manual entry


The new default editor color theme is now the 'Windows 7' theme. If you want to switch it back to what it used to be, there's a new 'Construct 2 original' theme you can set in Preferences to get back the old colors.


Export to Kongregate: updated script reference to point to HTTPS-hosted URL


Tilemap plugin: renamed the object's own AsJSON expression to TilesJSON since it conflicts with the new built-in instance save/load feature. Note: this will break existing projects that previously used the AsJSON expression, since it returns JSON data in a slightly different format (it is only the tile data, not the full object data). You will need to update any projects using this expression.

Bug Fix

When the system DPI setting changes, Construct 2 automatically issues a 'Reset dialogs' the next time it starts up to prevent dialog positionings becoming messed up.

Bug Fix

Node-webkit preview could leak files on disk in the AppData folder. Now it clears its cache whenever preview starts.
