    Gays you are fantastic.
    Just one thing, you not making easier for us who travel most of the time and do not have always big screen access.
    In BB2.0.1 on Project Settings Window General Tab is too big, and we can not scroll like we could before, so we missing some details to enter. And we can not even make it smaller.

    Project Settings General Window is much bigger then our screen, MacBookPro13'' .

    I have had similar issues with using Buildbox 1 on my 13 inch macbook pro laptop, and it has slowed me down. I have held off on competing out my builds of my games (I haven't published any yet) for a hand full of reasons, and this is one of them (other reasons relate to my other commitments outside of game dev and developing a game brand). I am going to try to solve this issue by hooking up to a larger monitor in mirror mode, and if that does not work well enough, I will just get an al-in-one desktop computer to work on. I am at a stage where I build art, animations, and sound options on my laptop and will compile it all together once I solve the screen size issue.

    @Jamie @dusan20002 go to system preferences, displays, and scale your display to "more space"... i had a screenshot to show you but we can't upload, and I don't know how dusan got an image to actually display from a link because no matter what i do, all i see is that STUPID generic img placeholder... linking an image never ever works for me

    @heathclose Just drag the image to the reply window. If this does not work like just now, then upload the image to a image hoster like imgur.com, click on the image icon in the reply window and put your link. This second option also works in private messages.

    Yeah I'd love to know this too. I figured it would just be a case of dragging the swipe control on to the gamefield UI, but that doesn't seem to do anything. Can't see anyway to configure it to get it to do anything.

    Hmm, interesting that Upload Files does not work in here (and in few other places in this site). In the other day I have ended up adding a direct link from Google Photos but that is not that trivial to get that out.

    Anyways, changes on new version are awesome!

    I managed to get it working, but the behaviour is strange .

    I configured the game with zero gravity and set character gameplay settings to "Direct movements" so I can see easily what's happening.
    I added a big Swipe button to my UI field, and added two "Advanced gameplays" to the player.
    I set the X linear velocity to 10 for Swipe A and to -10 for Swipe B.

    what I was expecting is something like : Swipe A detect a swipe to the left and Swipe B detect a swipe to the right but this was not the case.
    actually, the Swipe A / Swipe B work like the Switch button, they'll trigger alternatively regardless of the swipe direction :/
    this is not ideal for a gameplay requiring swipe to change direction ....

    I'm having trouble to update to 2.1.0 on my mac OS X. When the download is finished, BB shows an alert message saying that there was an error on the update and it doesn't complete. I had same issue when updating to BB2...but that was because the name of the app was different: BuildBox to Buildbox... I wonder if a similar thing is happening here. Anyone?
