    Hello everyone,

    I wanted to give you all a quick update on BB3. Currently, we are heavily working on tools that will let you easily convert BB2 into BB3 file format, so you can benefit from BB3’s flexibility and improve any BB2 game on the fly. So, we’re delaying our official BB3 release to add this key feature. Our goal is to make sure BB3 can handle ALL BBDOC files.

    We are now aiming at January for our official release, but we will keep you updated on the process as we go.

    This new build will also have many fixes and improvements.

    @NikRudenko this sounds on the face of it very good news. Just to be clear are you saying that the import of a BB2 doc into BB3 will now give us the full benefits of Nodes?

    Thank you for keeping us updated.
    Looks like you’ve been working hard.
    I’m looking forward to the release.

    Will you guys still be pushing out a BB2.3.X update?
    Or is it only BB3 now?

    Thanks and keep up the excellent work.

    That is correct, the dev team is working on porting over all components from BB2 into nodes. So you will have an “advanced move” node, etc.

    Yes we will have bug fix releases until we sunset BB2. This will be after we’ve finalized and cleaned up integration into BB3. We will still support BB2 for a while, don’t worry.

    Actually working on 2.3.8 update for BB2 as well. Got some improvements, fixes updates (Android Stuff, Bugs and Ad Networks).
    Also one of the biggest things is we making better Server Communication framework. Simply saying you will see less issues when BB can't connect to server.
    (You can expect 2.3.8 Beta very soon)

    Yes. Little sneak peek: He is working on new series of videos that will show you how to make a game from beginning all the way to the end (submit and everything). This will include Rewards and Stuff like this

    @NikRudenko
    Hello when should we expect final release early or late Jan also when will we see features that allow us to actually publish self and with publishers @TreySmith said we would see publisher checklists by beta 3 also when will we see SDK integration built in and ads as this is a urgent thing to have as buildbox 2 is loosing its relevance in the new 3D era

    This is excellent news about a very sound decision. It was concerning that many BB2 capabilities were missing in BB3. 2D is not dead & probably won't be for a very long time. Looking forward to the BB3 release even more now.
    Keep up the great work @NikRudenko & the Dev Team.

    Delay the release as you want but we will have to get a good final product at least 80% bug-free with good features that already requested plus remain the user-friendly features that let us make a decently good game that publisher would take it. please don't do like what you did with other products and stay always honest with us. thank you

    @NikRudenko has the API document been updated?
    Also, trying to implement IAP, but do not see any API reference for it. Am I missing something or has it not yet been implemented?

    Thanks!

    For In App Purchase we need to do extra little work. I'll try to squeeze it in in next update.

    When you say "ALL" is it really "ALL" like : Transform, advanced move, paths, portal, effects and everything that we have in Buildbox 2? All components in the UI ? Touch controls like BB2 with possibility to but physical buttons and etc? You men all that we have in BB2 will be present in BB3? @NikRudenko @TreySmith @Buildbox

    Yes this is important. I try every way but i didn't make lock levels. And why ads are not added to this version? Is the difficult feature?
