Hi there, is there any person in charge of support or having an unanswered bug forever is a feasible scenario?

You should check your browsers console log for any errors in the script. You could try turning off webgl. Also maybe uncheck minify script when you export.

I have no experience exporting to Kongregate these are just guesses.

The majority of people helping out and answering questions are users just like yourself, so you're tone isn't particularly appreciated.

Ashley has often said it may take him up to a few weeks to properly investigate a problem.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Well, thanks EyezWidee and zenox98 for you replies.

I'll try turning off webgl as you suggested EyesWidee.

Zeno (And of course Ashley), I didn't meant to be rude (Actually I wasn't), just wanted to know if the Scirra team have a support team paying attention to issues submitted by users or it is just a community supported framework.
Let me tell you, I think Construct is a pretty good tool, but as every paid tool it should have a paid support team behind.

Since the reproduction steps involve uploading and publishing via Kongregate, and the problem is not reported to occur anywhere else, this just sounds like a mistake during the publishing process and not a Construct 2 bug. Users commonly forget to upload some files, which breaks the game, and sometimes try to report this as a bug. Look in the browser error console for more information.
