Hi inservo,

Sorry you're having difficulties, can you upload your capx somewhere else if you can't get DropBox working?

Once we can see what you're doing we will be able to help you out!

the same goes for me. I don't think it's a bug, but hey, I don't have such an exotic system, all drivers uptodate and a clean fresh install. Maybe I should reinstall.

OK, here's the dropbox file (finally my stupid brain at least figured that out )

thanks again for your help

i don't see anything wrong with it, are you sure you're uploading the correct capx file ?

Everything looks normal here, i can see the tiled background too

Hmm, background works for me too. Does this happen to any TiledBackground object? Maybe you should give the last release a try. Link here

All looks fine to me as well. Can you download this graphics card utility we wrote:

http://www.scirra.com/blog/73/introducing-the-graphics-driver-updater-utility

And let us know what graphics card you have?

Edit: Also as nimtrix says are you using the latest release of Construct 2?Tom2012-03-20 21:27:11

ok, now have reinstalled (which was very fast -- too fast?) and still, none of the sprites and not the bg show any image. Very disturbing (and disappointing)

What version of Construct 2 are you using? If you click the blue 'i' link top right in Construct 2 it should tell you what release it is.

Also let us know about the graphics card!Tom2012-03-20 21:31:30
