If Construct 2 crashes, can you write up the steps to reproduce it and post it to the bugs forum? Thanks!

I was under the impression you have to save each project as a project (not .capx) then merge the folders, not copy/paste everything from one project to another inside C2.

In theory. Long ago Ashley mentioned doing that to make collaboration amongst teams easier. I have yet to actually try it, though.

I tried it last night it didnt work. I copied over all the files from one to the other and it opens fine in c2 but none of the copied stuff is there. Its all there physically in the folders but none of it appears in c2

You should be able to copy and paste all the objects first (from the layout), then all the events afterwards. (Don't try to copy/paste events if the target project doesn't yet have all the objects referenced by the events.)

awesome.
THANKS SO MUCH Ashley
I'll give it a go

btw...INCREDIBLE software

I recently came upon your software and am making my very first game

I do animation for a living
& had no idea that this level of user-friendliness for making games existed.

It is so exciting to have a tool friendly enough for us non-coders! (?)

That coupled with great support
and the awesome user community you have fostered here
Im continually wowed by C2's future potential

my humble & sincerest thank-you's to you & your team

it WORKED! whoohoo!! (?)

many thanks again


for those who may be running into the same issues
heres the sequence of what worked for me:

1. Create New Layouts in the Project you want to merge into.
These will be your duplicate layouts from the project your merging from
(i was unsuccessful with simply dragging them over from one project to the other)

2. copy/paste your objects FROM the LAYOUTS FIRST as Ashley indicated.

3. be sure to create objects like mouse, audio, as well as sounds & music (they cannnot be copied by simply selecting the objects from the Layout)

3. Create New Event Sheets in the project you want to copy over to.

4. copy/paste the events to the NEW event sheets you just created.

5. cross your fingers & RUN your new Layouts/Events.
