    Nice
    so I take it we don't have to redevelop our BB2 games for bb3? because this conversion tool will do all the work?

    Because I thought I had to pretty much redo all my BB2 games from scratch.

    I think the Navigation Button has a problem when 'Action' is set to 'Back Jump'. I can't set the 'Back To' to anything despite having multiple worlds/UI. It worked perfectly in Buildbox 2 but not in Buildbox 3.

    have you tried just setting it to default and just routing the nod links?
    Thats what I do I never rely on the action defaults for navigation.

    That works perfectly but I'm trying to keep my nodes as clean as possible. The only issue if I set it to default and route the nodes manually, it will cluster my nodes. I hope someone will fix this issue tho. Thanks for the reply, appreciate it!

    When do you think 2.3.8 will be released? and do you know if this release will fix the laggy particles previewer?, its hard to make good particles when you can't see what they look like. Thanks

    interesting.
    I wonder why they are in a hurry to release 3.0 if they are still supporting 2.3

    Alot of people not adopting it quick enough or will they extend support for 2.3 for the rest of the year? is that what they usually do with new releases?

    @SpoonCrysis i am not sure i am really new to this software, but i think they are working on integrating 2.3 into 3.0 and will eventually remove 2.3 and just support 3.0 but i am still using 2.3, i am in the middle of developing 2 games with it and hope that the transfer is easy...lol

    They have said on a few occasions Support for 2.3.X will continue for some time.
    @NikRudenko also said he’s working on 2.3.8 which will release sometime soon.

    Interesting my license information on my buildbox account now says buildbox 3 1.0 and no longer says beta. But downloaded it and it says its beta 4 so maybe not.

    maybe they are preparing for the final release.

    You've got this 2.3.8 update, because it's somehow related to BuildBox 3? I assume, because BB3 has a 2D component, and I believe BB2.3 and BB3.0 can work together until BB3 is finalized.

    @NikRudenko what about Amazon, Windows Store, OSX and tvOS, will those exports be supported in BB3?
    Currently with BB2, we do not have TV remote controllers for tvOS, so exporting tvOS with BB2 is pointless, because it's not exactly code-less experience, as controllers have to be coded in the iOS project. It's the same thing with OSX. On OSX, in-apps are not integrated at all when exporting to OSX with BuildBox 2.3.x

    For OSX exports the only option to monetize is with in-apps, since OSX does not support ads. How about that?

    In opinion to make BB3 fully featured, we need Windows Store, Amazon, OSX, tvOS and probably STEAM exports available. Steam's greenlight is depreciated, but is there a work around?

    @NikRudenko if Windows exports would be available in BB3, PLEASE consider supporting the FIRST MAC version of Visual Studio! It will be great for Mac users, because until now Windows apps were developed only on Windows platforms, this big change is a huge win for Mac users, if you know what I am saying. Windows Exports for Visual Studio 2015 is old and no longer reliable solution. However, Windows exports are not dead end. Do not neglect that road.

    Converting some of the actions etc in BB2 into nodes would be great for BB3 and really reduce timescales for development and we can finally have a decent 'Z-axis' for 2d games allowing a true sense of parallax and depth to levels.

    I would be happy with even 50% of the work done in Buildbox 3 converting my 2.3 projects any more would be awesome!! beats starting from scratch again in buildbox 3

    How did you add the button?!! that is very nice - that is one of the major limitations of BB3 not having buttons
