Notes

We've dedicated a whole week to ploughing through as many bugs as we can fix, and as a result we have a release with a ton of bug fixes! This includes fixes for some older issues that might have been annoying for a while, as well as a number of potential crash fixes. While we expect there to be a few more loose ends to tie off in the next release or two, the end result should be a more reliable and better quality Construct 3.

One notable change is that we've now enabled the Use worker project property for the C3 runtime. If enabled and running on a supported browser, this hosts the runtime in a Web Worker instead of the DOM (main thread). This is a huge architectural accomplishment and you can read about it more in this blog post on the C3 runtime architecture. Note that currently the only browser that supports this is Chrome 69+ - which is currently Chrome Canary (the stable channel is Chrome 67 at the moment). Still, it means there is now a way to try out this major new capability of the C3 runtime. If it has successfully hosted the runtime in a Web Worker, then "[worker]" will appear in the preview window caption. If it's not there it's not using a worker. You can also check the browser console (of the preview window) for more details.

Finally, we've got a beta of Construct 3 in the Windows Store, which provides additional features such as file system access - much like the other desktop download we've been providing for a while. We're interested to hear what you think so give it a spin and let us know!

  • Nice work!!

  • Thanks, boy, wonderful work

  • You all are amazing. Thank you so much for all the hard work you do. I feel very blessed to be in the Construct Community. There are surely other worthy game editors out there, and surely their developers are truly invested in their patrons, but I don't think anyone can top the Scirra Bros.
