This happens to me almost every time I use C2... Especially a several hour long session with lots of F5's to test the game...

I've piped up in the other thread, but wanted to say something here, too.

It happens to me regularly, and has for several versions now. It seems to happen more with longer sessions. Shorter sessions I don't see it, or not often, anyway.

And when it dies at close, it seems to die twice. Two dialogs saying it's stopped working.

Happy to try some things to test--let me know.aerger2013-08-16 07:13:30

Well, it's pretty clear that each time this issue is brought up, it's all about projects that have been open for long periods of time.

Chiming in - just what I've experienced but may be completely unrelated or coincidental:

This seem to happen pretty consistently for me if I have opened a project file directly through Construct 2, say a text file in notepad and it's still open when I try to close. It also seems to happen if I'm still using the browser that I used to preview the game in.

Basically, it seems like Construct 2 goes semi-modal and won't close properly before any other programs that have been started through it has been completely shut down.

If c2 is open for extended period / or if lots of work has been down in small period, it gets sluggish, it either crashes - very irritating. Or, if you close it which seems to speed it up again if it is sluggish, it crashes, won't close etc.

I think this is great software, it is just very unstable at the moment.
I hope they find the gremlin soon.

Just keep reading.
Just keep learning.

Does anyone know if this is being looked into? It seems quite few people have this issue, including myself, and it's becoming increasingly frustrating the more I work with C2.

It has been looked into, apparently traced down to libraries used by Construct. But not much more can be done until someone can get it to repeat, or discover and actual cause. Which no one has been able to do.

McKack has an interesting theory to watch for...

edit: Oh yeah, if you want the locked program to go ahead and crash, hit Alt F4. it saves the time of opening the task manager. Alt f4 only crashes it when it's locked up on closing.Paradox2013-09-08 01:26:29

I get this problem a lot, but I don't really care. Nothing that a CTRL+ALT+DELETE won't fix. However I heard that if you clean up the registries; this action will reduce C2 from not closing problem.
