In April 2014



Image New releases


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 How to report bugs before posting and providing 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.

Always appreciate these monthly summaries, thanks again. One thing that could be added is that CocoonJS plugin went open source and added ios game center and google play game services.

@russpuppy: The issue is that the CocoonJS plugin is not really working as it is at the moment and hasn't really a specific maintainer.
I only list plugins/behaviors that were posted to the "Completed addons" forum, are supposed to work and have a defined "author".
All those elements the plugin is missing at the moment.

Otherwise, thanks for the kind words.
