Notes

You don't need us to tell you these are extraordinary times. Here at Scirra we're now all set up to work from home for the long term. We expect we will be able to more or less carry on business as usual this way, but please bear with us if there are any teething issues, especially at the start. As we adjust to the new normal, life goes on, and things look set to stay this way for some time. So we will do our best to carry on as before - and for us, that means keeping our regular release schedule going.

This release brings two main improvements. Firstly autocomplete in scripting has been improved, and is now able to autocomplete more built-in property names, such as autocompleting the list of objects in your project after typing 'runtime.objects'. The autocomplete suggestion list has also been updated to include all the latest APIs, such as the recently added Physics scripting APIs.

Secondly for those of you using local folder saves in Chrome, there are improvements for folder-based projects. You can now use 'Reload from folder' in the Project Bar to update the Construct editor with a file that was edited on disk, perhaps using a different editor. This can also be used for entire folders of project files. Also now that Chrome has added support for being able to save file handles, we've implemented recent projects support for local files and folders, but note this only works in Chrome 82+ (currently Chrome Dev channel, and Canary is on 83). Note due to the extraordinary circumstances Chrome stable releases are currently suspended, but hopefully they will find a way to resume those in future.

As ever there's a few other changes and bug fixes, and we hope to keep bringing you more releases as usual!

  • love consruct

  • when I upload an export on App Store I have this message :

    "ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage - Apple will stop accepting submissions of new apps that use UIWebView APIs starting from April 2020"

    Is this fix on this release or it's in xcode i need to change something?

    Does the reload from folder functionality work for sprites? I see it on the sound, music, font, and files folders but I don't see a way for it to work on sprites. Is there anyway to edit multiple sprites in an external editor, such as Aseprite, and reload them from a folder?

  • Great stuff, thanks!

  • On iPad Pro 2018 I have to triple click everything to register a double-click.

  • Using construct3 on smartphone, last stable realease, can't import sounds and music, message say file is not supported, but i used dame files before in another c3 project

  • play my educational game Quest of Joe. it shows what not to do lol.

  • im stoked and baked over this. um btw can you expand games over 100 megabytes on sierra store. 100 mb is way to much limitation.

  • Tem como vocês aumentar a quantidade de eventos na versão gratuita do construct 3 🙏🙏🙏😭😭

  • Love the folder structure update! Thanks for the hard work. Stay save :)
