Beta versions are not as thoroughly tested as stable
Associate .c3p file extension; minifier update; hierarchies & templates improvements; bug fixes
Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3
In this release we're adding support for associating the .c3p file extension with Construct in Chrome! This is supported thanks to a new feature in Chrome 102+ which you can test now on the beta channel, and is due for stable release next week. You'll need to install Construct as an app in Chrome as this feature only works for installed web apps. We're rolling it out a little in advance to help make sure it works in production, but if it goes smoothly, this (finally) provides a way to open .c3p files directly!
Other than that we have a big batch of additions, changes and fixes, including updates for hierarchies, templates and scripting, and fixes for some regressions in the previous release. Happy testing!
Let us know with a thumbs up!
Great update, thank you for continuing to improve the templates feature!
APK build is not working
I just tried a build and it worked fine.
well there seem to be some issues with building app bundle/apk
first attempt I got stuck on "adding files" forever
then on second it built but app got frozen on splash screen...
many many minutes just to simple minify...
I don't get it. What do you mean by being able to directly open them through chrome, or at least whats the intended purpose?
Nice! Here's a Little Request
Please Add a Way to Copy The Collision Polygon to All of The Frames of an Animation and Also All of The Animations Like You Can With The Origin Points. Thank You :D
That functionality already exists. When you are in the collision polygon editor just right click somewhere on the canvas and select apply to whole animation or apply to all animations.
Hierarchy support in timelines is truely a blessing. Please keep updating the timeline with things like this.
like, literally all you need is to be able to manipulate meshes in timeline and you'll be ahead of Spine in my book
.c3p direct file open is amazing, do you think there would be a way to add a "shortcut file" in all projects saved as folders, so they also can be opened directly ?
I mean either the existing .c3proj or a new thing if it's not possible
Unfortunately opening an associated file does not allow accessing other files in the same folder, so this can't be supported yet for .c3proj files for project folders. For those you'll still need to use the 'Open local project folder' option, or choose it from recent projects.
Now that we have some sorta support for forward kinematics with hierarchies in timelines... maybe inverse kinematics next? ;)
Remember that the Beta app will always update to the latest beta. Nice addition though, thanks for adding.
