C2 r95 crashes

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Jul 22, 2012 2:05 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to run c2 on an older laptop, Toshiba tecra m1 running windows xp sp3. Install went fine, no errors, c2 starts fine. However, when I try to open a project or create a new one, it crashes: "Construct 2 game creator has encountered a problem and needs to close... bla bla". The video card of the laptop is a Trident cyber-xp4. Is that the problem? Is it too old and unsupported? Does it worth insisting on it or should I just ditch the idea of running c2 on my old Tecra?

Did you try updating your video card drivers?

Of course, but the latest drivers are dated Nov. 2003...

Ah well, thought I should mention it in case you hadn't tried. Might be a bug, I don't know.

(Sorry for late reply, was away)

It looks like a display driver crash, which is not Construct 2's fault, it's your graphics card maker's fault. You must have very old hardware if the latest driver is dated 2003! I'm afraid it looks like you need a new computer...

That I know :), I was just thinking to squeeze some more juice out of a dry stone, but yes, this little fellow is just... done.
Thanks for the reply though.
