project failed to open - your thoughts

Post » Sun Apr 23, 2017 9:23 am

hello! I don't have time to make a solid bug report with trying to reproduce it, so I will do it this way to see if other people have had the same experience and maybe even advice.

- downloaded a .capx from the forum (so I guess it was made in C2)
- opened and edited it in C3
- saved it to dropbox on computer 2
- opened it from dropbox on computer 1
- C3 does: downloading, importing, message: "failed to open project. Check if it is a valid Construct 2 single-file (.capx) project."

If this happens again, I will see if I can make time to make a bug report.

How are you saving it (extension)?
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

I don't understand. C3 doesn't save as a .capx - it's a c3p. The format is different - .capx is mainly xml whereas .c3p is json.

Sorry if I'm missing something /misunderstanding. Could you clarify?

I saved the capx from the forum (someone's dropbox) directly to my dropbox.
Opening it from dropbox in C3 (today) is not working.

Did I do something incorrectly? :)

Trying to understand the editing and saving aspect of your OP.

You say you originally opened/imported a .capx into C3, editied it, then saved it to dropbox on a different computer(?). If you saved from C3 then it wouldn't be a .capx.

Do you see my confusion? (maybe I'm having a bad Sunday!).

You are right, when saving in C3, it becomes c3p.
So I share your confusion now. :)
I will then just pay attention if this ever happens again, thanks.
