Notes

In case you wondered where yesterday's release was, we're changing our regular release cycle to now aim for Tuesday releases instead of Monday. This is to give us a bit more time to review bug reports filed over the weekend before making a release. Consequently Tuesday Tips has been moved to Thursday Thoughts to avoid clashing.

This release mainly focuses on bug fixes, as we're now aiming for a new stable release in the next few weeks. However there are a couple of new additions for timelines, tweens and the new Date plugin. There's also a new example of the Date plugin on the Start Page to help demonstrate what you can do with it.

Like this Release?

Let us know with a thumbs up!

  • Haven't been able to isolate it yet, but I create sprites in code and it works fine in 200 and 201. Most of the sprites render in 202, but some don't show on the screen anymore and there are no errors in console

    Update:

    Think I found it. If the image is put on the layout initially and destroyed so that it's loaded, then creating it in script works. If I try to create a sprite that hasn't been loaded yet from code, it doesn't fail but never shows on the screen.

    I am going to submit an issue on it

    Issue filed: github.com/Scirra/Construct-3-bugs/issues/3910

    Final Update:

    The bug has been addressed and the issue closed. It is supposed to show up in the next beta.

  • The "GetDatePart" Function within the Date & Time example project seems to throw out a wrong month:

    "The current date in different formats" > Locale date string says 6.6.2020 which is true.

    But the "Extract a part of the current date" > Month > Local says "5"!

    Is this intended? Do I not get something here?

    Great Feature by the way! Looking forward to its stable release :)

      Date parts are sometimes zero-based, i.e. 0-11, rather than 1-based (1-12). See the descriptions of the expressions.

    thanks for all the hard work.

  • Thank you so much for adding steps per seconds in timeline!!!
