    Hey guys, as was announced at the event last night. Buildbox 2.3 is now available.

    https://www.buildbox.com/announcing-buildbox-2-3-0-release/

    You can auto-update from 2.2.9 or if you are using a BETA version you can download using the links in your original welcome email (the email which you received your license key).

    Here are the main features in this version.
    • iPhoneX support
    • Xcode 9 is preferred
    • Android Studio support
    • multi selection and editing
    • advanced snap grid features
    • reworked manipulator
    • redesigned creator
    • vastly improved loading speed
    • reworked undo/redo system
    *** CAUTION: BBDOC files are not backwards compatible with Buildbox versions earlier than 2.3. Please ensure backups before loading BBDOCs into Buildbox 2.3.0 ***

    You can report bugs here, but for faster and more reliable support please email support@buildbox.com. Issues reported via support are always given a higher priority.

    This and SoundBox are the only things I would use in the master collection, and I'm not about to go spend $3000 on products I won't even be using. Is there going to be some kind of plan where we can select which products we want, for a cheaper price?

    How's this? I still wouldn't have enough money currently, but I think this is much more fair (if it's available for purchase at anytime). They all add up to $3000, or you can just select which products you want to install:

    BuildBox 3.0 - $750
    BuildBox 2.3 - $500
    AnimationBox 2.0 - $500
    SoundBox 2.0 - $500
    VoxelBox - $250
    PixelBox - $250
    + $250 Purchase fee

    Actually I forgot how useful PixelBox could be for some developers...maybe remove the purchase fee and make PixelBox cost $500 too.

    Dont update to 2.3 Guys !

    Most most likely some time after you re open buildbox all graphic assets from atlas will be deleted and so you game in fact you will have to put the graphic assets again from start, happen to me twice now with two different games, thankfully im making copys and going back to 2.8

    Also you will not be able to export using eclipse there is some error after importing project

    Definitely, contact support... we've had multiple customers that have been using 2.3 for several months for big games. We have not seen this at all. We did catch that some corruption could happen if you are running 2.2.9 (or older) and 2.3.0 at the same time. It is definitely not recommended and we disabled the ability for 2.3.0 to start if an older version is running. But we can't prevent 2.2.9 from running. Not sure if this could be your case.

    We are now only supporting Android Studio (no more Eclipse), which is very easy to use, much easier than Eclipse at this point.

    So far so good. Device loading is crazy good! One big bug so far is that I can't edit collision of advance move on objects withought crashing. Will keep looking!

    @Andy What's the technical reason that the Save takes so long? Obviously must be much more going on behind the scenes but surprised at that. Great to see game loading times vastly improved :) Im happy to trade Save time for that. Also a big shout out to Nik and all the development team on 2.3. So far its looking a cracking build and rock steady. Great work by all.

    I'm not sure the specifics, but we are checking and writing quite a bit of data. It's something we'll look at after we address other more important things.

    We can't still see the video on how the New Software works.
    Secondly, If I purchase BB2 now, I'll have access to the build box 3d this month right?

    Buildbox 2.3 works very good, except for one point! When you scale a action button the label gets lost.
    and that's exactly what I need for my game :oops:

    @Andy. Is there a direct download link? I can't find it and the original one from my subscription mail doesn't work.

    What has happened to the randomise field on the spawn rate of spawners? No longer available and my spawners are acting like hoses. Fortunately only updated BB 2.9 on one of my machines.

    yes, I also noticed that I wonder why they have removed this option to make random spawn is an important feature @Andy @Buildbox and I have a question what version of Heyzap implemented into bb 2.3.
