A way to revert construct version in steam?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jan 18, 2016 2:55 pm

So now my steam construct 2 has updated to the latest stable release that makes old local storage not work for my released game I update with new content regularly.
That means any new update now will delete everyone's saves so I can't update anything to it now till this is sorted.

Is there any way to make the construct 2 on steam not update to the latest build and revert to an earlier one?

I'm not sure if I undestand you well but if I do well I think that you wants an earlier version of Construct2....

You can donwload and old version from: https://www.scirra.co m/constr uct2/releases

And if you save your game with the newest version you can read this tutorial:

Very useful for beta versions or problems with the newest version, nevertheless you have to report that problem to fix it...

Thanks for the reply, it is essentially what I want to do but the problem is that I bought the steam version so I can't download an older version using the site and can't find a way to do it in steam.

I'm not sure it would work, but it might worth a try: Disable updates for C2 in Steam, then download the desired Construct 2 version from the offical website and install it. Finally, copy your installed files and replace the ones located in the Steam version's directory.

Of course, you can uninstall and reinstall... but you have to save a copy of you license.. is like: c2license.txt.

You can see it if you go to : file>about>view license and save as...

Then when you reinstall a free version you put your license txt, also in the same place....

Well i think that it can be a possible solution...

Your whole post is not relevant as mapmerry has already said this relates to the licensed 'Steam' version.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Sadly there is no disable updates in steam option, it was replaced with update only when you load the game.

When I put the older installed version from the site into the steam and then try the importing a shortcut to it method, that some people use for game mods, it shows as only the free version.

Steam doesn't have a very good way to handle rollbacks, which is one of its drawbacks I guess. However we didn't make any changes to the local storage object this build. Are you talking about storage in NW.js? The new version is supposed to automatically import saved data from the previous versions, is that not working for you?

Yes this is nw.js local storage is what I'm having problems with.

It does not import the old saves of variable data in local storage from versions I make with the v12 and older nw.js to any versions of the game I make with the new c2 and latest nw.js.
I get two seperate folders for each of the versions so I can play v1.2 of my game with older nw/c2 with all my saved data or play v1.2 of my game with the newest nw/c2 thats using a different save data.

neither versions affects the other in terms of webstorage saving.

My older nw.js saves go here:

My newer nw.js saves go here:
