My C2 has been crashing every 10 minutes, help please..

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Problem Description
when i open construct it will work perfectly, then about 10 minutes... a loud sound plays like a *beep* and then construct crashes and it becomes unusable , i cant click on anything...then i need to close with the administrator...
im been having this probelm since 1 or 2 months ago...but i dint post anything becuase i did not have a message or any info anymore tehn saying just, -it crashed , but sometimes rarely a message will pop out...so i took a screenshot and will post it to see if you can recgonize the problem... another clue is that if im near the time it will crash and i run the preview of my project... all the font in my game will be tiny and it will loose its font and go back to arial...

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • open construct, and start working normally.
  • constrcut crashes aftera sound and it gets locked up.
  • sometimes a error message pops out (very rarely) but i have a screen shot of it...


Operating System and Service Pack
Win8, 64bits Using Node-Webkit

Construct 2 Version ID
from r164 to r170

EDIT: I just attached a screenshot of how the font of the game changes when c2 crashes, i hope this give you any hints, Thanks!!

Just suppositions, that maybe could help you work a little better until this is solved.

Question : Do you have the back-up options set up, and if so does it works? (since if it happens somewhat regularely, I don't see another thing that could cause that). Unless another program could be interfering ith C2 maybe (but this is still a supposition)
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

Is the crashing happening with any project or just a particular one? Is the project large?

Have you tried turning the icon cache off in preferences (which should help with large projects)?

@Lunatrap

It's in the new beta. Here's the write-up:

"New experimental option in Preferences dialog: 'Cache icons in editor for better performance'. Defaults to on (which is what it used to do). If turned off, it can reduce editor performance since every time an icon is needed it will have to re-load the object image and resize it down to an icon. Icon quality is also reduced to help make this as fast as possible, but this mode has the benefit of helping to avoid hitting a limitation in Windows of how many icons an application can create, which can cause stability issues with very large projects."

This issue happens to me too, although definitely not every 10 minutes.

How much memory is your game using? What does debug say for collisions, objects created etc?

Just because a project is large, should mean you should suffer such instability. Maybe this might be a useful large project that Ashley could use to help make C2 even better? That would have to be between you and he, obviously, but if large projects are causing C2 to fail, then something needs to be done about it.
