    Hi all,

    I'm just trying out alpha 2 of BB3 and I'm noticing I'm not able to select the shoot node to use. Just checking if this is correct at the moment or a bug?
    I can post a video if needed.

    Thanks

    Matt

    Not just shoot nodes. There are some other nodes that doesn't seem enabled at the moment

    @MattWills Since it is still Alpha 2 those nodes may not be functional just yet. That would probably be my best guess.

    I have to say I'm very disappointed in what they have delivered, what is it over 7 months ago they gave us a huge sales pitch, mind you it was a good deal no question. But from what I'm reading, all you are going to get is simple geometry like balls and boxes, no real animation. They still haven't got a usable version after all this time. I hope they prove me wrong but I think we will be look at next year before we see anything worth using, if you can't import FBX data in for animation then it's game over for BB3. No disrespect intended just frustration with how long it's taking !

    I do agree that they will need to have FBX support for animations on official release, but there are ways to work around it for now and plenty of games you can do without characters and animations. Also you have to remember that it is still in a Alpha state, which generally means it will not be feature complete and will have things missing and or you will encounter lots of bugs.

    Yes, that's correct. We are still polishing up those nodes so they are disabled for now.

    Thanks @ZackGriset. Is there a time frame for the Beta?

    We're working hard on it now. Will release it on an event soon. Shooting for 2 weeks.
