This week we have another three new examples for you - once again, the easiest way to find these is to search for the new tag in the Start Page. We also have a new option in the Mesh Editor: now you can hold shift to move mesh points without distorting the image. This allows you to make things like a zig-zag cutout shape, providing another new option for your level designs. Check out the updated Mesh platforms example for a demonstration.

Other than that there's a variety of other bug fixes, updates and improvements, such as updating cordova-ios to the recently released v6.2.0, and fixing a couple of issues introduced in the previous release. Stay tuned for more updates!

  • Hello! I wonder if you changed the Free Edition limits too, because since this update I can't add any more events, even if I have 48/50.

  • For the ios viewport fix, Please Revert back to r233 for the ios build. Its the only build that actually fixes the viewport issue and doesn't show the line at the bottom of the screen with the background color.

      A user reported that the change actually broke their game, which is why we reverted it. We need to find a solution that doesn't break existing games.

      • Thank you for the response! Ill just continue to use r233 and test future updates until a solid solution is found and working, iOS is a huge deal since it brings most of the US traffic and profits to the app. I submitted all 7 of my game and tested them thoroughly and they seem to work fine. Perhaps this user is using scripts, I found that having scripts in games give unexpected results and glitches when building to iOS(responds too fast) or Android(responds too slow).

  • Guys, can you add any additional grid support systems?

    1). Horizontal lock (X)

    2). Fixation Vertical (Y) when moving a point.

    This function should be similar to the texture control function when holding "ctrl + shift". You can use other buttons, I think you get the idea.


    • And also maybe an option to have your objects snap to a 1x1 grid when your main snap to grid is turned off, because sometimes you need to move something more precisely than the grid allows, but you still want it to snap to a whole number. Thanks, and you guys have been doing a great job with these releases!

  • Thank you! That text crash was driving me nuts! I thought it was the typewriter function...

  • I hope add a lot of features in mesh like add mesh in timeline or tween or something else, nice update 👍
