Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
This release has a few various updates, and more bug fixes. We're hoping to get a stable release out soon so please test carefully and let us know about any remaining issues.
The Dark & Light themes have been updated in this release, and there are a couple of minor feature additions as well, like a new way to detect Instant Games features (since support for 'Switch game' on iOS was recently removed) and some keyboard shortcuts to close find results. The Z Order Bar should now be faster in large projects, and we've got a batch of fixes for the C3 runtime, Animations Editor, Timeline Bar and more.
Instant Games support in Free Edition
Currently the Instant Games plugin and export option are supported in the Free edition of Construct 3. Since the Instant Games platform allows for monetisation through ads (and also IAP although the plugin does not yet cover that), and the Free edition is not allowed for commercial use, support for Instant Games will be removed from the Free edition in the next release. If you are using Instant Games in the Free edition please purchase a plan to continue using it in future.
Instant Games: new 'Supports feature' condition (to check if 'Switch game' supported)
Find results bars can now be closed with Escape key
