This is actually a test in r125. I don't have the add frame crash there, but a weird ghosting problem in the interface which builds up until I can't see the interface anymore.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/30e5hvlr18xhofm/construct2_ghosting.jpg

Steps to reproduce:
1. start a new project in r126
2. add a sprite anywhere
3. add a new frame (crash)

The r125 problem
1. start a new project in r125
2. add a sprite anywhere
3. add a new frame
4. close the sprite modal window
5. Ghost image of the modal window remains in the interface. minimizing and restoring only adds to the problem.

Observed result:
r126 problem: crash when adding a frame to a sprite
r125 problem: ghosting when changes in the interface occur

Weird thing, I just reinstalled r119 and it shows the same behavior as r126. No problems with any other application I run, only Construct 2.

Expected result:
neither ought to happen. Never had it with r119 in my previous install.

Browsers affected:
Chrome: no, Construct 2 program issues
Firefox: no, Construct 2 program issues
Internet Explorer: no, Construct 2 program issues

Operating system & service pack:
Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit, SP1
Ati Radeon HD 4800, Ati Catalyst 13.1 (latest) and 12.4

Construct 2 version:
r119, r125 and r126

Can't reproduce any of the issues describe, and I haven't seen any similar reports from other users. Given you have display glitches I'd say this is very likely to be a graphics card driver bug. Have you checked and made sure your drivers are up to date?

Thanks for the reply!

13.1 is the latest according to Catalyst Control Center. Perhaps 13.2 will fix it, I don't know.

The thing that makes me think it's a Construct2 related problem is because none of my other applications (Adobe Cloud suite, Visual Studio Express and a whole sleuth of tiny apps ranging from notepad++ to Sisoft Sandra etc.) show problems. I don't know enough about display drivers to say anything on the topic.

The other thing is because each version has its' own problem, like the crash after inserting a frame in r119 and r126, but not on r125, while r125 has that ghosting problem that doesn't occur in r119 or r126.

I'm planning on buying a new card within a few months since I can't use webgl with the current one (Radeon HD4890, 3 years old now). Perhaps that solves it.

Thread can be closed.

I tried the latest beta r127, and it immediately crashed when I started a new project. I tried again, and noticed that ever since the crashes started I didn't have the left bar with the properties etc. I pressed the reset dialogs button and now it doesn't crash anymore!

I tried adding a sprite: no crash! Added a few frames: no crash! So far so good ^^ I have no idea why that fixed it or what could possibly have caused the crashes in the first place, but all's well that ends well I guess. :)
