Beta versions are not as thoroughly tested as stable
New beta cycle: wake lock, new tiled background wrap modes, and lots more!
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 brings a number of improvements, but also several significant under-the-hood technology upgrades. The new features include support for wake lock in Chrome 84+ (due out in the next few weeks), allowing you to keep the screen on - particularly useful for motion-controlled games. There are also new wrap modes for Tiled Background, including mirrored repeat for an alternating pattern, and clamp to edge which is useful to avoid unwanted wrapping.
On to the technology upgrades, and first of all this release updates the Cordova iOS library to 6.0.0, with fully built-in support for WKWebView. It also makes it possible to run the app more efficiently on its own app: URL, instead of the file: URL used previously. However since storage is associated with the URL, changing the URL will cause all storage to be cleared. Therefore all existing projects will keep using the old file: URL, and new projects will use the new app: URL. You can also find a setting for this in the 'Advanced' section of Project Properties.
Secondly as long planned we've updated the NW.js desktop build to use mostly the same code as Chrome does. This allowed us to delete a large amount of duplicate code, reducing bloat in the editor and eliminating the maintenance overhead. However note due to known issues, you'll need to use NW.js 0.46.3+. This is currently only available as a nightly release but we expect it to be out soon.
Let us know with a thumbs up!
Google Cloud open doesn't work anymore. Authorisation Error
Error 400: invalid_request
Required parameter is missing: response_type
I'll create a bug report
Looks like something that might have broken with the new Closure Compiler. As usual please file any issues at github.com/Scirra/Construct-3-bugs to make sure they're not lost/forgotten.
sooo... unless i'm doing a dumb, using this new version with the NWJS installer corrupted my projects upon saving
P.S: Did switch to NWJS 0.47.0
Yes, seems like later nwjs versions corrupts the project upon saving sometimes. I'm also unable to open some projects saved in nwjs 46.2+ (Desktop app)
I dunno, I'm not a team member/coder(but I make games without code)
I can't open my projects for a week beacause of the Google Cloud Problem (So I can't use Construct)
Dear Construct staff Why don't you fix it?
Are there any other options to add Ads to Win Store and Xbox games without PubCenter? 🤔
Biggest update in this is the tile map selection bug fix, didn’t even know that was a bug, thought it was a permanent design decision.
It was a design decision. A wrong design decision.
Is it just me or can't you right click inside event sheets in the latest version to include other event sheets and such?
It seems to be working fine for me here.
Ah, it doesn't work anymore on older nwjs versions. So updated to the latest one and now right clicking works again.
This is a good update except you all should add more language support(ex: c#) or allow data packs to be added to run those, also, you should add 3d support. Other than that, it is a good update.
Thanks. Is the keystore password issue also fixed with this release?
I believe that was fixed last release (R204-2)
