Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Post » Thu Aug 22, 2013 3:39 pm

Link to .capx file (required!):

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Knight animation
2. Create or edit an animation
3. Modify origin or crop
4. Close animation panel
5. Repeat step 1 to 4 many times

Observed result:
C2 crashes randomly when closing the animations panel (most of the time on the second modification.

Expected result:
No crashes

Browsers affected:
Not relevant

Operating system & service pack:
Windows 8 64 bits

Construct 2 version:
rc139 64bit steam version

Note :
I wanted to try on a steam free version of construct 2 but have no key... Also can't find how to launch the 32 bit version on steam to check if the problem occurs too

Any solutions ?

I've edited many of your anims for the past 10 minutes and I can't get it to crash.

Exact, precise steps with a minimum .capx would be better.

BTW I'm using the latest beta - maybe worth trying, see if you still encounter problems.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Thanks for your help.
I found a 100% occurence crash :
1. Open Knight Animation
2. Crop all Idle animation (yeah even if it's already cropped)
3. Close animation (no crash)
4. Close C2 => C2 crashes... (same error as before)

Also, if I only edit 1 frame at a time, close the animation, save, and repopen the animation to edit the next frame, C2 does not crashes.

I'm guessing it might be a hardware problem or driver problem (computer bought in China, maybe some RAM problem ? GeForce GT 555M with latest driver.

I'll try with the beta (hope it works on Steam, it's downloading atm...)

I'll let you know.

Hi again,

Changed to beta (rc142), problem still occurs.

Actually, the problem does not come from the capx. Here are the step I do to reproduce the crash on my computer with clean capx :

1. Launch C2 and create new project
2. Create new Sprite
3. Import the run frame strip 13x2 (
4. Crop all
5. Set origin on all images to foot
6. Close animation
7. Close C2

Result : C2 crashes. Happens 100% of the time.

If I only change 3 or 4 origines, the problem does not occur.

I tried to removed some RAM and only leave 4Gb out of 16Gb but no change.
I also tried it in safe mode. Problem still occurs.

Here is the event log from windows if it helps :

Faulting application name: Construct2.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5214de10
Faulting module name: Construct2.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5214de10
Exception code: 0xc000041d
Fault offset: 0x000000000036445c
Faulting process ID: 0x17e8
Faulting application start time: 0x01ce9fa560083571
Faulting application path: G:\steam\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Construct2\Construct2-Win64\Construct2.exe
Faulting module path: G:\steam\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Construct2\Construct2-Win64\Construct2.exe
Report ID: c95d2531-0b98-11e3-bea1-bc7737cb3003
Faulting package full name:

If by any chance the developers of C2 read this, might it be possible to get a key for the non Steam version to try this problem on a fresh install ? (I have the Personnal Steam version)

Crashing on close is a known problem for which a bug report has already been filed; closing as duplicate. Please post a new report if you can reliably get a crash in the animation editor which does not involve closing C2 as a step.

Thanks for the reply.

At the moment, I can edit a full sprite, add as much animation and change them as much as I want. But as soon as I close the animation panel and try to change a property or edit another sprite, C2 will crash. So I just edit one by one and close C2 after each animation edit.

I'm guessing it comes from my computer configuration (since the steps I described first still happens to me but not to others). I need to format it soon anyway so I'll let you know if the problem still persists after a fresh install.
