    Thanks! love it... Only thing I don't like is that the tvOS controllers not work, tested with xcode 7.3

    I did get it to work but have to code the whole controller myself. Will this work in the final version when we can select the tvOS controller in the Project Settings? That woud be nice, it's not that big a deal for me because I'm a programmer for more then 25 years but I can imagine that it will be a big plus point for most BUILDBOX fans :)

    Anyway I love this new version and I will have fun with it!!!!

    How does one get access to the Build Box 2 forum (I am a customer), just don't know if I have to use a key or something.

    We are going to have a lot more training, just hold tight for a bit longer. Some of this stuff is barely 2 weeks old. ;-) Now that the feature set is settled we can start producing final docs and other materials.

    "added: different backgrounds per world" doesn't work for me, a little bit of panic because I am supposed to finish my game this week with 6 worlds and need this to make the game smaller and not using objects as backgrounds.

    I re installed... Is version 2.0.0 B#1007 the latest? Went to the about section under file to confirm the install worked from the link I had saved.

    Not right now. We plan on expanding leaderboards but have nothing planned for achievements in the near future.

    Is the "source code" problem (bbdoc) solved or will the app source still be disclosed ?

    If you mean preventing people from opening up the IPA and gaining access to resources (images and data files) then we have not yet implemented any additional protections in 2.0. We do have some options in mind and they are coming in a future release.
