Beta versions are not as thoroughly tested as stable
Functions 'Copy picked'; more Android updates; bug fixes
Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3
In this release we've added a new Copy picked option for functions. When enabled, the function will be called with all the same instances picked as the place that called it (but the function won't change the picking for the place that called it). This is a useful new option to ensure functions can easily operate on the same set of picked instances, avoiding the need for workarounds such as passing UIDs in parameters.
We've also done some more Android updates including bumping the target API level again (since there's a separate API level for "Android 12L"), ensuring the exported config.xml is properly formatted, and fixing an issue with builds using the Share plugin.
There's also a batch of bug fixes, including some improvements for timelines, themes, and a couple of possible crashes.
Please note: due to staff time off, there will not be a beta release next week (1-5 August). The next beta release will be the following week (8-12 August).
Let us know with a thumbs up!
The copy picked thing is very useful!
Copy picked is huge. Thank you
Copy picked will make so much stuff so much cleaner!
(I did a similar suggestion on the board: construct3-21h2.ideas.aha.io/ideas/C321H2-I-298 so I'm double happy.)
Copy picked sounds very interesting!
What does "Removed NW.js specific editor features" mean?
Running the editor in NW.js is being retired, and in this release we removed a lot of the code that handled things that worked differently when the editor ran in NW.js. Nowadays you can just use the editor in Chrome/Edge and get virtually all the same features.
Dear developers, finally make some kind of monetization plugin other than admob! for example, Appodeal Ads mediation, otherwise it’s simply impossible to work with only 1 admob in the yard of the 21st century
I like how you frequently add features that are a better version of what we've had to do all along like copy picked.
THIS UPDATE 304 BUG WITH PREVIEW
Love this release! Lots of good stuff here!
Great !! On the topic of Functions, could you add bold or a small icon for Return function... they are hard to see sometimes.
