In March 2017

Image C2 New releases
  • No releases, focus was on Construct 3 for this month (see below)

The features listed here are only the "highlighted" features for each release. Check each release page to see the complete changelog and comments for each version)

Be sure to keep updated to the most recent release of Construct 2

If you think you have found a bug in Construct 2 you can report it in this forum BUT
  • Make sure it is not already a reported bug by searching through the "Bugs" forum
  • Make sure it is not a bug in your events, a difference between what you have coded and what you would expect
  • Make sure you're using the very latest version of Construct 2 (beta possibly, stable if this is the very latest release available)
  • Attach a .capx of the issue in the simplest manner possible (no 100+ events capx, no 10 mb capx)
  • Make sure to read Bug report requirements before posting and provide all the required informations (your configuration, the steps to use to reproduce the bug, any relevant information you can provide)

It is really important since about 50% of reports aren't bugs which takes time out of working on Construct2 directly.
Be responsible, help everybody by making sure it's not your events in cause first.
