[r116]Unable to close

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Like you, I never had the crash on close problem, but I will report the "refuse to quit" immediately if it happens again.

Hopefully it's just how the crash manifested on my machine.

@Ashley, unfortunately I can report it has happened again in r112. I left C2 running while the computer slept and now it refuses to close, either by clicking the red X or right-clicking C2 in the taskbar and clicking 'close'.

If I go to the task manager and click 'end task' , I get the 'Construct 2 has stopped working' message, and if I close this, everything exits.

r112 unfortunately doesn't seem to fix this problem for me. It's doing the same thing as sqiddster. Do you think it could be a plugin possibly doing it?

I would seem to happen only when I try not to recreate it. It seems almost random.

@sqiddster, @Python - crashing if your computer goes to sleep or hibernates while Construct 2 is open is a known issue and is a separate problem - can you reproduce any issues on exiting when your computer has been on and active the whole time?

@Ashley I'll let you know if it ever happens without the PC going to sleep.

Well it seemed to happen just now. I was working on my project for a while, all I did was uploaded new versions of some sprites. I also moved the sprites around on the screen. Then I saved (I'm saving directly into a dropbox folder if that matters). Clicked close project from the menu. Then tried to exit, but it just hung there and didn't close.Python2012-12-14 04:29:30

No exit probs for me thus far.Made some significant changes for my monkey game project (More animations,Improved character sprites , Two new levels and added a plethora off sound effects).The biggest prob i had which came close to the exit crash was when i changed some events.The project closed when i pressed the x button ,but construct 2 didn't close. After i pressed the X button for a second time construct 2 closed flawlessly.

I can confirm I am unable to close C2, even though my PC did not go to sleep. I did play a fullscreen game while it was open.

I have it happen to me too: Can save and close projects, but will not exit the program. Seems to happen when I open another project when I'm working on a project. i.e. opening an example project. This opens a second instance of C2 that loses ok. After that instance is closed, I can't close the 1st one.

Yes, this has happened to me also using the last few builds. I have Win 7 64-bit and usually end up closing C2 using the task manager. I haven't really noticed any rhyme or reason other than using the program for awhile.

EDIT: @Ashley

This just happened again today (1/27/2013). I had one project open for many hours while doing regular work on it. I opened up a 2nd project, copied some things from 2nd to 1st project. When I attempted to close 2nd project, the project closed but C2 would not. It stayed open and unresponsive. So, I had to kill both with Task Manager to get back to normal.Manley232013-01-27 21:48:29
