Weird Problem with Scrolling in Layout

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Mon Nov 21, 2011 3:54 am

I recently started doing Construct Classic projects on a different computer, and ever since making the switch, I've noticed that when scrolling to look around in whatever layout I'm viewing, the screen starts blinking rapdily.

It's certainly not a huge issue, but it is kind of annoying too, and sometimes causes a lag when scrolling.

I tried looking at different projects, same problem. I also reinstalled Construct Classic to be sure, but the issue remains. I don't recall noticing something so weird when I used Construct on my other computer.

Has this been happening to anyone else? Any ideas what the problem might be?

When I was forced to use a very old computer for a while, I experienced something similar. I had some success when I right-clicked and selected "center layout" once before scrolling around and always repeated this whenever it happened to blink again.

I don't know what causes it, and don't experience it anymore, now with a more up-to-date pc.

Glad to hear it's not just me. Though for me centering the layout didn't quite fix the problem. Although it did make it a bit less noticeable. Thanks for the suggestion.

What a strange glitch. I don't think my computer is too old. 3 years doesn't sound too bad, does it?

Could it maybe have something to do with the Operating system? I'm running Vista on this computer.

I thought it was my crappy old pc, it seems I was wrong. But I suspected more the graphics card in conjunction with DirectX. That pc was running with WinXP.

The computer I'm running on was actually built for playing games, though the fact that it's three years old may still mean the graphics card is the problem here. Ah well, it's only a minor annoyance. Thanks for the responses.
