Are you using web fonts? And are you testing local or remote? I see this in remote testing on machines...

Hi,

I am using Arial regular 24 font. Its locally tested. It works in r147 until I updated to Visual Studios 2013 RTM. I had no problem in the RC. It happens on other two projects.

Okay, I tested it on a non used laptop, and the text came out correctly. Must be something wrong with Visual Studios on my main production PC. Joining to reinstall VS 2013 see of that correct the problem.

I am seeing the same issue on Windows 8.1/IE 11. Also a laptop, but with newest driver (10/17/13). Construct build r148. I have VS 2013 Express installed, but I see the issue when running the layout from Construct.

Can't reproduce with Windows 8.1 GA and VS2013 RTM. Looks just fine. Are you absolutely certain you are using the GA (general availability) build of Windows 8.1 - which is newer than RTM - and the final release of VS2013? You must have both, we don't support older versions at all.Ashley2013-10-22 14:20:15

Hi Ashley,

I have both Windows 8.1GA and VS2013 RTM on both my desktop and laptop, but I am only getting the issue on the desktop. Everything works on the laptop. I reinstalled VS 2013 RTM on the desktop but the issue is still there. Not sure if it's a VS2013 bug or maybe a Windows bug in my desktop but others are having the same issue. Could it be a java issue?

Thanks,
John

I doubt it's related to Java in any way. My best guess is you're not actually using 8.1 GA, because IE11 had some WebGL bugs in RTM and earlier and it looks most like WebGL rendering bugs. Perhaps check the Visual Studio console for any errors or warnings on the broken machine. If they relate to WebGL, I'd think that is even more likely the case.

I updated to 8.1 from the Windows Store on 10/18, so that would be the GA build. I haven't even put the project to VS and see the issue when running the preview from Construct.

I have the free edition, r139 running on my computer at work, also on 8.1 GA. The text issue does not occur. Downloading r148 to same computer, will post result.
