Beta versions are not as thoroughly tested as stable
All-new debugger; gamepad rumble; C3 runtime feature-complete
Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3
We have a big release for you today! This release enables the new C3 runtime debugger. This brings a raft of new features including an all-new GPU profiler, support for breakpoints in triggers and loops, a better CPU profiler, taking screenshots, and more. We'll have a blog post out soon going in to more detail about everything that's new! It's a major improvement on the old debugger. However since this is the first public release of the new debugger you can expect some bugs - as usual, please let us know if you run in to any.
As of this release the C3 runtime is now feature-complete. It's been a huge project, and now with the new debugger and the last few plugins supported, all official features are now supported in the new runtime. Accordingly the C3 runtime option in project properties is now enabled by default - you don't need to go to Settings to enable experimental features first. We think the new runtime is ready for broader testing and we'd encourage you to try out the new runtime if you haven't already. Simply change the 'Runtime' property in the 'Advanced' section of project properties! Note that new projects and the example projects on the Start Page all still use the C2 runtime. Once we're satisfied the C3 runtime is stable enough, we'll switch all of those across as well.
Chrome 68 also finally adds support for gamepad rumble, aka gamepad vibration. Accordingly we've updated the Gamepad plugin to support vibration (in both runtimes). It's a great way to add some extra feedback and immersion when using gamepad control.
As ever we have further changes and bug fixes. Check out the change list for the full run-down.
Let us know with a thumbs up!
when i added Admob . it not work with runtime 3
it show me just background color
I thought this was only me. Is there a workaround for this issue?
Probably this issue? If so it's already fixed for the next release github.com/Scirra/Construct-3-bugs/issues/1984
one last thing

Thanks this is now fixed for v514

I just filed an issue about this for you: github.com/Scirra/Construct.net-website-bugs/issues/18
Will the new C3 runtime switch go live soon?
Seems like tomorrow's Chrome M69 stable update will have the Offscreen Canvas/Service Worker features in it. I assume those are essential for the new runtime.
Also thanks for the gamepad features, those will come in handy especially for Desktop Game Dev's.
We'll make the switch once we're satisfied the C3 runtime is stable enough. This won't happen at the next stable release, but hopefully the one after that.
OffscreenCanvas is not required for the new C3 runtime, so will not affect the schedule, but is certainly nice to have.
C3 runtime has been live as an advanced option for months and months. Now it just a plain vanilla option. You can switch any time you want. Or is that what you mean? The C3 runtime NWJS exports dont seem to work right now though
Congratulations for the new runtime to be feature complete!
And thanks for the update.
Ashley can you add some easy guide on porting c2 plugins to c3runtime, as there are a lot of great plugins and addition to using them we would like to also take advantage of c3 runtime and increase the performance of our games.
Can we get a chromium update for Desktop build so we can test controller rumble/vibration?
Thank you! 😊
Guys when you release official Tween behaviour ? :3
This makes me so happy. Just like every update. But this one REALLY makes me happy. ^_^
I've made a demo project for testing Gamepad Vibration.
I'd appreciate if this could be included as a template in future C3 releases, if it meets the quality standard for C3 templates of course.
If not, guess people can check it out on their own by downloading and running it in C3 r115+: Gamepad Vibration Demo
Ashley great achievement!
One question. Is C3 runtime exporting supposed to be a thing now ? as Ive just tested my own project and the Demonoir and Kiwi Story demos for NWJS exports and all are failing.
Exporting with the C3 runtime is now supported. Please file a bug if export doesn't work!
K will do
