Steam Version 117 Lags after exactly 17 mins

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Post » Sun Feb 03, 2013 4:21 pm

Steps to reproduce:
1. Load up Steam
2. Load up Construct 2 Beta 117
3. Wait 17 mins

Observed result:
Editor goes from silky smooth to impossible to operate.

Expected result:
Responsive.

Browsers affected:
Chrome: yes/no
Firefox: yes/no
Internet Explorer: yes/no

Operating system & service pack:
Windows 7, Windows 8
Construct 2 version:
Beta 117 (Steam)

[Extra Info]

It happens if you have steam in offline mode too, it is perfect until 17 minutes after launch, then it suddenly becomes unusable until you quit and reload.

If you load up construct 2 work for 15 mins, quit, reload construct 2, work for 15, quit.. reapeat it will be fine, but once it goes past 17 minutes, the bug occurs.

Also you can't quit steam sometimes after the bug comes up, claiming that Construct 2 is still running "Waiting for construct 2 personal to shut down".. despite quitting it and nothing present in the task manager.

[Non Steam Version Works Fine]

I should note that I have tried the stand alone beta version of 117 and it has no problems, even after an hour or so of use, so I think the problem is only with the steam version of Construct 2, or steam is interfering with it in some way.cyberdrizzt2013-02-03 17:28:39

I have reverted back to steam version 114 and there are no issues with the editor, even after several hours of use, so the problem may just be with the beta 117.

This is a very strange issue. Can you reproduce it on any other computers? I've not heard of anyone else having trouble with the Steam version so far, so it could still be a problem specific to your computer.

The problem seems to be if you install the free version, then the personal version on top of that, then the beta on top of that.

I deleted everything in steam and the steam / windows folders associated with Construct 2, then installed straight to beta 117 and it is all working great now. I have been using 117 for a few hours now with no slow down in the editor at all.
