Got you, motherfucker!

OK, Verena and I figured out what was wrong.

It’s the directory names. If the directory name is too long, it causes the game to crash. Install it to “Program Files\Phenomenon 32” and it crashes. “Program Files\Ph32” is fine. Probably something to do with its saving and loading of files. So now I just have to alter the installer and make sure everything works.

God, this was insane. Sky Cat is having way too much fun with me.

    Will you be able to upload it, or is your internet still being horrible?

  2. Lovely.
    Can’t wait to become frustrated with trying to get it to work so that I can cover you in a pile of jellyfish.

    You know, all these problems make it sound like Construct is just too buggy to be worth it. When you finally get the game uploaded, you should write an article about all the problems you faced, as a warning to anyone considerying using it.

  4. Actually, not really. Construct is still in pre-1.0, but it’s wonderfully powerful and easy to use. You must remember that no-one has ever built something in Construct on this scale before. I’m pretty much in unknown territory here.
