    OK I've got a windows 10 machine and it's not liking BB2 at all, I have an old windows 8 machine I can get going to compare. Now am I going to have any troubles jumping from one computer to the other. Not running BB2 at the same time. I need to test it a feature at a time and we'll see if it's a windows 10 thing !

    I swapped over to my Windows 8.1 computer and it just sits there and does nothing, can get the open screen but click on the demo platformer and it freezes. Not happy :(

    Platformer demo is running here on Win 8.1 but ball is bouncing all the time making a controlled "jump" impossible, this applies to MAC (El Capitan) too

    [EDIT]
    Bounce is set now to 100 in Beta2, setting it to 0 and it's working again

    @todro, yeah we had issue with some default settings that cause Bounce to go to 100, missed fixing the Demo files... presets should be OK. I don't think it will affect anyones games either created with BETA1 or imported from BB1.

    OK, we got the Windows crashing issue identified. I'd advise Windows users to stick with BETA1 for now if you want to use existing files. We will be hot fixing this shortly.

    Thanks for the update, working great here so far (on a Mac). Opens files from the first beta just fine!

    Awesome stuff :)

    FYI: BB2 beta2 running 100% stable on Mac. Have not encountered a single crash as of yet. Been using since release last night and all day today. All available presets work great :)

    Yes tried the teleport on both Windows 10 and 8.1 and they crashed the same. The bounce setting went a bit crazy to. But presets are working fine! keep going guys you're getting there :)

    I take it back.
    If you do a cmd-z to undo multiple times and keep the key pressed down whilst doing so BB2 will eventually crash :)

    OK, guys... I replaced the Windows download with a fixed BETA build that stops the crashing issue where you are trying to load a save file from the first BETA. Please let me know if this works for you. We have verified on our Win 7/8/10 systems. The download link is the same as the email with your license key.

    Working great. btw @Andy is it safe to publish a game while the beta is running or would you recommend waiting for the final version? Thanks.

    And what about that Android problem where the game stopped working, something like that?

    @DeadlySeriousMedia what is the B# you are using (from About Buildbox screen). Are you using Windows or Mac?

    It's working fine for me B#872 which is the latest Mac BETA. I am able to open a new file, add all the effects to default animation of character and then preview.

    @Shawh really that is up to you and how well you test your games and how comfortable you are with working out issues. We will continue to make changes and updates until the official release. We make every effort to make sure this process does not cause serious game breaking issues.
