    Thank you for presets.

    Although some bugs that been reported before are still persist, but thank you for the update..

    One of the bugs that I personally have reported before where jumping character stops jumping on Advance move with collision event

    Thanks Andy. The auto-rotation bug is gone. I still have problems with the score resetting incorrectly after start checkpoint bug. I already wrote to Sean. Sadly I thought I could use this for the release of my new game. But didn't get lucky. :(

    I remembered that you guys at one time had issues with the changelog not updated. I found the culprit. You have two of them:
    https://www.buildbox.com/buildbox-2-change-log/ (available from Buildbox/more/software change log)
    and
    https://www.buildbox.com/buildbox-change-log/ (not sure from where you can acces this one)

    The latter was updated while the first one was not. :D

    I think both of these are on the list for the next release, while not a guarantee it is the best place to be. :)
    Ah, thanks for this. I'll take a look. :)

    No, it takes a week or so to prepare a release. Anything reported this week did not make it for sure.

    2.3 is going to be a fairly major... still a bit away though. There is some major code updating going on. :)

    The most recent update made it so the particle effects do not follow my player but instead just float to the top of the scene. Im not sure what could be causing this.

    Same happend to my game regarding the particles. They are "stuck" behind my player instead of "dynamically" following my player movements.

    Please send the particle issues to support@buildbox.com with an example BBDOC, we will need to see if it's a bug or a setup issue. We fixed several issues related to particles regarding the character and movement that could have affected this. This may be quickly fixable in the BBDOC.

    Hi @Andy, This new update, Particle system is not working right, Position Type is the same for all three options.
    Please have a look, it was perfectly fine before in 2.2.5.

    Same issue here with Particle. Was about to submit to Apple... Will need to wait for that fix!

    Just put a particle on the player on one of the Template and you'll see the issue

    OK guys, we will fix this 2.2.6 particle issue early next week. It affects particles that are embedded in the character animation.
    • Embedded particles now (unintentionally) obey scale of the character. This can make it look like the particles disappeared. We will restore the previous behavior to ignore.
    • There seems to be a directional issue with the particles in some cases as well which we will work out this weekend.
