In April 2017

Image C2 New releases
  • Release 244 Stable - Stable update with Xbox Live, WebGL 2 and more!

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.

  • v0.22.0 (Chromium 58) [Requires r217+]
  • Get the latest and current version and make sure you are using the appropriate Construct 2 release : https://www.scirra.com/nwjs

Image Former retrospect
As an added bonus, here is a list of the former "What you may have missed" posts for the year.

Work keeps on on Construct 2 and especially on Construct 3.
Don't hesitate to keep an eye on https://www.construct.net, the official website for Construct 3, to see the incoming features for the site itself and Construct 3.
Also, as announced in the blog articles, May will see a Construct 3 game jam on Newgrounds providing access to every one to the full version of Construct 3 for the duration of the jam.

A nice occasion to test out Construct 3 and make some games with it.
Have a nice May and see you next month.
