This build is mainly a maintenance release, and includes further improvements to using Construct 2 on a high-DPI display, particularly in the event sheet view. As usual there's a few other changes and fixes; these are detailed in the changelog below.

It's worth noting that for this release we investigated over 40 bug reports, but only 5 needed code changes in Construct 2. This means currently something like 85% of bug reports are either not reported correctly or do not identify a problem in Construct 2. While bug reports are essential to ensure Construct 2 is reliable for everyone, these reports can unnecessarily consume developer time, or could easily be improved to a useful report by following the bug report requirements as closely as possible. So please continue to file bugs if you run in to problems, but please take extra special care to comply with the bug report requirements for every report. Very often people assume some aspect of the guidelines is not necessary or applicable, but it always is! Anyway, happy testing and let us know if you run in to any trouble... following all the report guidelines of course ;)



NW.js plugin: 'On open/folder/save dialog cancelled' triggers


Event sheet column widths are now consistent when moving projects between low-DPI and high-DPI systems. However this may cause a one-off change in existing projects on high-DPI systems.


NW.js: should now use separate storages in preview mode and after export


Cordova export: now defaults "Use WKWebView" and "Use new Intel XDK project format" to enabled. WKWebView performance is significantly better and requires the new project format in the XDK, and we want to get broader testing of this. Note if you've already exported to Cordova then your last settings are still remembered.

Bug Fix

More high-DPI display fixes for editor scroll speeds, object bar icons, animation & frame icons, image editor poly points/image points/hotspot, layers bar padlock icon, expressions panel, and event sheet appearance.

Bug Fix

Runtime layer indices could be incorrect after deleting a layer

Bug Fix

Pathfinding behavior: did not always correctly take in to account the new layout size when changing layout

Bug Fix

Duplicating a layout now sets the same active layer

Bug Fix

Due to a mistake in the build script, the 64-bit audio encoders were included with the 32-bit build. This should now be corrected.

Do you like this release?

We'd love it if you could show your appreciation of it by retweeting and sharing it on Facebook and Twitter!

My best part of the update : "Duplicating a layout now sets the same active layer.". Good thing they fixed that. Thanks Scirra Team.

Regarding the bug reports, many beginners report some of the C2 logics as being a bug (I was one of them). I suggest that every bug report should have a pre-bug report first voted by 10-20 volunteers from the community and then allowed to be viwed by the Scirra team.

We're always happy for "minor" updates. A bug fix is a bug fix! Well done, Scirra Bros!
