R185b - Project Export Bug - Common sprites not Exported

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Post » Tue Oct 21, 2014 5:42 pm

Problem Description
I have project where 1 or 2 common images are used across multiple sprite sheets. In the attached Example: The Bottle image is common across two Sprites (Level1 and Level2). When Exported (I did for Windows Universal App), only the bottle from Sprite#1 is getting exported to Level1-Sheet.png, whereas the Sprite#2 bottle is not!!

If I replace the bottle with a different image then the Export spritesheet contains the new image.
This is causing blank space in the exported game!

Not sure if this issue started from the R185b, as I dont remember having this issue in the past.

Attach a Capx
Export doesnt export common images to spritesheet.capx

Exported as Windows Universal App-VS2013.zip

Description of Capx
Simple CAPX with two sprite Sheets1: Level1 and Level2
Both sprites have common Bottle images.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • Create new project
  • Add a Sprite and select various images to animation frames
  • Add another Sprite and select various images, but select one images that already part of Sprite#1
  • Export the Project
  • Goto the Exported images folder
  • You will see that only Sprite#1 has the all images exported,
  • The common image in Sprite#2 is missing from the sprite sheet

    Observed Result
    Exported Sprite Sheet-Missing Bottle image.png

    Expected Result
    Ideally all Exported Spritesheets should have the images added into the Animation.

Closing as by design, this is image deduplication as described in export-time optimisations.
