Link to .capx file (required!):
Sorry, but I cannot provide this since I lost almost all of my work from this bug. But here is the most recent backup I have on the highly unlikely chance that it contains anything that actually caused the problem:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/g2a6g36owk0wpzo/Speed%20Ball-2o9m6ufiw0ora.capx

Steps to reproduce:
1. Unknown
2. Unknown
3. Unknown

Observed result:
Construct 2 stopped responding after I clicked Run Layout. I waited about 5 minutes and nothing happened, so I closed Construct 2. I looked in my dropbox folder for a backup (which I configured to run hourly), but the backup was from 12:23 PM and only contained changes made since when I last saved (which must have been that time).

Expected result:
Construct 2 should have ran the layout normally instead of being an idiot and crapping its pants. (Sorry, I'm a bit upset from losing almost all of today's work.)
Also, it should have saved a backup around 8:30 PM (it's 9:36 PM right now) because I had it set to hourly.

Browsers affected:
I was using Chrome 30.0.1599.69, but the issue is with the editor, not in the browser.

Operating system & service pack:
Windows 8 Pro (64-bit)

Construct 2 version:
146 (64-bit)

The backup doesn't happen on it's own, it is triggered when you hit save. The timer is more to keep it from making backups every time.

Well unless they were to put a warning in the backups tab, I would consider it a bug.

I'm afraid without reproduction steps there is very little we can do.

We've got autosave on our todo list - hopefully that will help...

Sorry, but I haven't figured out exactly when it crashes. All I do know at this point is it happens sometimes when you run the game.
