    Collision shapes manipulations are now fully enabled
    What does this mean?

    Do collision shapes now update when an object is scaled/rotated?

    Thank you, Nik and the BB Team! Just in the "nik" of time! Excited to play with this. DERE Vengeance will come soon when Windows export is a go. Good luck to all our endeavors, boxers. I bet the game showcase will look awesome.

    I agree we need windows export and pronto! lol

    But it would be really nice to have. Be quicker to share ideas with friends, for game jams, and pc publishers. Also, it would cater to the people that want to release onto steam.

    Especially would have been good to have this weekend since Ludum Dare is going on. One of the biggest game jams! Would have been good exposure for BB3 ;)

    Hi, I've just updated to beta 4, then I exported android and generated an .APK, and it's still showing black screen when I open the game on the device, which is exactly same as with beta 3. I thought it could be fixed on beta 4.
    Am I doing something wrong? How to fix it?

    Would LOVE to see the view distance extended finally. Sucks trying to make games where you can only see a few feet ahead and objects just pop up. Means we have to make ONLY slow games.

    @NikRudenko 1 - If i want to use progress bar with points how can i do this? Do i have to edit script? Do you have it ready for us?

    2 - Is it possible increase the bar or points with a value and with we reach this value the Actor go to the next level like we have in Buildbox 2?

    3 - When i was play i saw that level progress was not reseted if i close preview and open again. How to reset level progress?

    Fantastic job BB Team! Just one quick question. I'm trying to move a 2D character left/right within the 2D setting. I can movement for left no issues but when I'm trying to add speed for right movement to the move node its showing in red and resets to zero. Just checking if this is something I'm doing wrong?
