Construct 2 Release r88

There is a more up to date Stable Release! Download the latest Stable release instead here.

28.3 mb, Windows 8/Windows 7/Vista/XP

Thursday, May 3, 2012

This build fixes some more bugs (notably with PhoneGap, OR blocks and Else) and has a few usability tweaks to make life a little easier in some places.

If you were wondering why it's been a long time (2 whole weeks between releases!!111), I went to a conference and also had some time off to relax. We've been working pretty hard for a long time! However we're back to work now and will still be aiming for weekly beta and monthly stable updates. If this release proves solid I would be looking to make the next release a stable update, since it's a little over a month since r84. Happy testing!



Expressions panel: is now folder organised the same way the event dialog is


Flash behavior: 'Is flashing', 'On flash ended'


Support for high-resolution timers (coming soon to Firefox, hopefully also Chrome). Allows 'dt' to be more accurate, currently is rounded to a millisecond


Project bar: can now scroll up and down while dragging


Animation frames bar: can now scroll up and down while dragging


Apparently the 10mb maximum size on Chrome Web Store packaged apps has been lifted, so warnings about the maximum size in the editor and tutorials have been removed.


Enough people have reported the "blank images" problem in the editor, which is an ATI driver bug, that I feel forced to try and work around it anyway. I'm not sure what the cause is, but I've added some workaround code to try and fix it anyway. This might affect other systems so be on the lookout.


Event dialog: should now remember selected action/condition if it is a common one between plugins, e.g. 'Set position' between Text and Sprite

Bug Fix

Event dialog: now works properly when object folders have the same name as a family or object type

Bug Fix

'Save' button did not always enable after undoing

Bug Fix

Can no longer assign origin or image points to Particles object (crashed attempting to do so)

Bug Fix

Export to PhoneGap: did not work with old versions of PhoneGap, which could have been a problem updating an existing project on PhoneGap Build. Should fix issues with sound and possibly touch/accelerometer input.

Bug Fix

'Trigger once' did not always work correctly after 'Is on screen'

Bug Fix

Else-if chains still did not work correctly

Bug Fix

Triggers did not work properly in OR blocks

Bug Fix

Some other conditions did not work properly in OR blocks (notably 'Is overlapping')

Bug Fix

Using a family 'Destroy' action did not work properly with the 'Wait' action

Bug Fix

Better checking for invalid or mistaken values when importing sprite sheets, which prevents possible crashes
