  • Wow! That panel object is awesome! Nice work!

  • Hurray!

    Really like the new Panel object. Very useful!

  • i have a problem, it likely has to do with the fact that i'm trying to install it in sandboxie but older versions of construct had no problems being installed in a sandbox

    any help getting it to work would be much appreciated!

  • Why not install it normally?

  • Does the 360 controller plugin work in older, more stable versions of Construct?

  • Rich

    i like the ease of removing old version of construct completely before installing new builds

  • I don't think it will, the XBox 360 controller required various IDE and runtime changes, so it won't be backwards compatible.

    Edit: Vinny: you need to run the full setup including the VS2005 redist that the setup should launch, is sandboxie preventing that from launching or preventing its successful installation? If sandboxie breaks the setup I'd contact the sandboxie devs, because I don't think there's anything unusual about our setup and it hasn't changed significantly since the last build

  • The installer removes any old registry settings. What more do you want to remove? There's a .ini file in your application settings if you want to go the whole way, I guess.

  • So those new build rumors were true!

    Checking it out now...

  • still no new stable release? sadzorzz

  • sandboxie doesn't break anything in the setup that i know of, everything appears to install correctly but i know that sometimes all that's required is to move a couple of direct x dlls to the main application folder for an application to start working but it didn't seem to work this time

    it's not THAT big of a deal but i enjoy the easy removal of programs using sandboxie so i thought i'd try to find a work around/solution before resorting to a regular installation. i'll try asking on the sandboxie forums and if nothing comes of it then i'll do a regular installation withot sandboxie. s'all good!

  • still no new stable release? sadzorzz

    The stability of this version will only depend on whether people are getting major bugs, if we get the all-clear after a whole lot of people have tested it, it's stable.

    Anyway... Holy hell, that's awesome! The panel object is also totally awesome, too.

  • Hmm... there seems to be something up with LOS behavior in this build, but I don't see any changes to LOS in the changelog. It might have to do with Sprite changes.

    What's happening is if the Y position of a Sprite is exactly equal to the Y position of the object with LOS behavior, then the Sprite is completely invisible as long as it's on the left-hand side. I'll try to mock up a demo showing this.


    Here it is:

    Run this in 0.99.3 to see what it's supposed to do, then run it in 0.99.4 to see the difference. A hotfix on this would be super-swell (that is, if it's easy to do and stuff...)

    Edit 2:

    Platform School seems to be running okay, aside from a bit of a gravity issue when swimming. But I assume that has to do with the new gravity settings, and it seems I can fix that pretty easily. So barring any unforeseen difficulties it looks like work will continue on Platform School here shortly
