Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
It's the start of a new beta release cycle! This release mainly brings updates to autocomplete in the scripting feature, including improvements to the way it makes suggestions and its handling of globally-scoped names. There are also various updates to plugins including the ability to set the position for banner adverts with Mobile Advert, choosing the front/back camera on mobile with User Media, and saving probability tables as JSON with Advanced Random.
As ever there are various other adjustmenets and a range of bug fixes, and we have more in the works behind the scenes, so stay tuned for more updates!
