    Hey guys,

    Here is the second 2.3.6 pre-release. Please take care using this release as it is not as fully tested as an official release. We've made a few minor updates to the API and are now including an Android example for setting up MoPub as a customer ad network on Android.

    MAC: http://download.buildbox.com.s3.ama...3.6-2155_214a6fc853d323411caf3770f8134f47.dmg
    WIN: http://download.buildbox.com.s3.ama...3.6-2155_1d3e7826d3260c65491304487a20900d.exe

    See here for setting up MoPub as a custom ad network on iOS and Android.

    FYI, Android seems fine. I just tested it because I was already on there for something else. Will check for iOS.

    Are you using the right version (2.3.6 B#2155)? It works fine for me. Are you double clicking the teardrops? Mac or Win?

    Particles working fine here again. I'm on Mac.

    What I wrote in the other thread last night still is happening in this version. Basically a bullet from default animation compared to advanced move, set to same interval of spawning, they behave different (advanced move is like half the time)

    Then there is another bug related to time/speed. If you put two objects (for example enemies) in a scene and make a wake up component to it, you'll see even if the two have the same speed (linear velocity of 2 for example) applied, they have different velocities now. The one with the wake up component moves much faster. The weird thing is, this happens only until it is in a certain reach of the character and then it slows down to normal speed.

    Have not looked at this yet. An example file would speed that up (for any issue). ;-) Otherwise, I'll get to it eventually.

    I'm not sure if this is supposed to happen, but if you rotate an Object (say 45 degrees), and try to drag the box to scale it in the X or Y direction, it scales both axes, meaning you can't scale in only 1 direction.

    :)

    I'm not sure I'm making correct sense of this... but I'm not seeing anything really obvious that is wrong here.

    If any Object has 0 rotation, you can click and drag in the X axis without affecting Y.
    If you rotate an Object, and click and drag in the X axis, it scaled both X and Y.
    So you'd have to reset the Y value manually after.

    Best demonstrated with a Circle @Andy.
    Once rotated, the X (or Y) scale get applied to both axes.
    But maybe it's always been like that?

    On pc I just hold shift then resize. So it equally scales object.

    Ah, if you rotate by a handle or rotate by keying it in, it seems to act differently. I believe when you rotate by the handle (hold down CMD on Mac) that is the correct behavior. Will check it out with the dev team.

    Thanks for update greak work lots of problems have been resolved, and here are bugs thats are still there so i put them here again just to track more easily

    1.
    Liniar Valocity is doing nothing on spawn object set to Physics work normal when Fixed
    Angular velocity works both physics and fixed
    2.
    When you set some big object like 800 px to destory all and the put it on the edge of gameplay frame, ale the objects they become invisible
    but you can shoot them colide with them etc you just dont see them, its like its killing only the default animation
    3.
    Also when object is set to phyics linear velocity in Y and X direction is not working

    Thanks :)

    I've attempted to set and test these but not having any luck. I'm sure there is a bit of info I'm missing. Could you clarify? Here is the BBDOC I'm using.
    https://buildbox.box.com/s/ywqr6n6qyjxaiv29gx2das3unbwungr6

    Yes, please provide a BBDOC when you can. I'm not sure about how to check this one, not having any luck.
