Is there any way to disable the auto update check?

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Fri Jun 06, 2008 1:56 am

My internet connection went out today. During this time, I tried to open up Construct but each time I did, the program kept freezing at start up.

When my internet connection went back up, I opened Construct and I was able to use the program without any problems.

I suspect the auto internet update check feature causes my computer to hang when there is no internet connection available. Is there any way to disable it?

Thats odd. I do all of my work at home where I have no connection and I've never had a problem with that. Maybe mine is already disabled? :?

I guess it may have been a fluke. I tried to reproduce this bug by unplugged my internet connection but even then Construct works.

But when my modem had no sync, it didn't work. Hmm.. I don't know. At any rate, everything works fine now. I'm not sure what the problem was but anyway it doesn't matter now.

Construct should prompt you the first time it's installed to a computer if you want to check online for updates - but currently there is no UI to change this option. You can however edit Construct.ini directly - go to:

C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Scirra

and in Construct.ini, change UpdateCheck=1 to UpdateCheck=0. Construct will stop connecting to the internet on startup.
