Files uppercase exported all Lowercase

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jun 08, 2015 2:59 pm

It´s a Bug or I´m doing something wrong?

I have two files:
Arnold2-2.ttf
nVizinhos.css

When I export the project, they become:
arnold2-2.ttf
nvizinhos.css

Windows does not matter, but Linux does not find the files.

I already noticed, but never caused problems.
If you import files to project, they get to lower.
If you access for example from a plugin directly by string filename, you have a problem.
But you can set the string in plugin toLower...
Or use file picker.
Or use lower case filenames. ;)

I guess it has a sense, that they are lower case.

@deathangel, it is a way to go around the problem :)

If you use with Linux, unitl you discover that the name was changed by the export.
The name should stay as we saved it.

Now I know and I´m renaming it,but....it´s still a bug :)

Bumping this thread.
Is C2 supposed to lowercase the names of the imported files?

its not a bug, by default C2 on export, it renames all the files to lowercase, to avoid miss usage just rename your files with lowercase in your project before exporting and use the names as they are

im guessing your using the exact names with uppercase in your project, and Linux is hyper-case sensitive locked, which is why wont find your files.

yes


just name all imported files to lowercase names, and everything should be ok. same applies to videos or anything else.


see the official bug report and response of Ashley on this problem since February Lowercase Bug report
