Items not visible in the layout

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Thu Jul 11, 2013 12:30 am

I'm new to Construct and am following the "Ghost Shooter" demo tutorial. When adding a tiled layout or sprite to the layout is says:-

"Now you should see your tiled background object in the layout."

But all I can see is a faint blue box the size of the object added. When I run the game everything is there, but is there anything I need to do to see the actual graphics appear in the layout? Thanks for any help in advance!

Sounds like you turned off a layer. Go to the Layers tab and see if you've unchecked one of the layers (and therefore hidden it). The tutorial tells you how to get the the Layers tab if you aren't sure.

I have checked this and all layers are there and set to visible. I can see the objects on screen they are just a faint blue box as opposed to the actual graphic (as shown at runtime), really strange.

You can always do a Save as single file, and post the CAPX to somewhere like dropbox.com so someone can have a look.

It's weird it works then on my version of Construct 2 in work, so seems it is nothing to do with the file but something to do with my machine!

I am having the same issue - the sprite graphics appear as white boxes with a thin blue outline (or bounding box). My layer is checked and visible. Also, I have tried multiple ways of importing the graphics, all have the same result. When previewing the game in the browser however, everything shows up fine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
