It's great to be able to have access to what BB3 will be.
We need BB3 RC, get out as soon as possible.
Man... you guys are good. How in the heck did you find that?
@TreySmith Die hard boxers lol never underestimate em.
@TreySmith man come on throw us a bone on the Canadian store too
@TreySmith I do have a question. Where those squash and stretch animations done with the nodes or using JS or did you guys get .fbx working inside buildbox 3 with animation info?
Not only squeezes and stretches look awesome but easy eases too. Performance is absolutely stunning. Good luck with the Voodoo test.
I've been working on the reveal event for BB3 Beta all week. We're close. You guys are asking great question. You're going to love what we've done here.
This is what is so exciting.
Someone wants a weird new feature? Whip up a node. Someone in the community makes a match 3 game? They whip up a node. It's all easy to share in a new format we call .bbasset.
Also, we're using this "container" idea in even bigger ways like I'll share on the event. Stuff that Alpha 2 people don't even know about yet. It's bigger than just nodes and it's going to be killer.
Super exciting to hear! I cant wait for the event!
Coming from other engines and doing game programming professionally I have a TON of questions about the JS part of it, but I guess I should hold my questions off until the beta is out in order not to overwhelm you guys lol.
Trey. Is it possible to make 2D games in BB3 like we do in the 2.0 version? Is the some camera to only make 2D games?
Will you put Joystick support for steam and console games?
It uses Mesh.obj ?
yes it uses .obj right now.
@TreySmith Oh and btw. HOW DOES IT LOAD THAT FAST!!!
With this thread i noticed two things 1 ) The Game made using BB 3 which is absolutely stunning. 2 ) Iphones/ipads now have screen recording feature ( I record screens using QuickTime and haven't noticed until @5petersonzachary shared this video lolzzz )
Played it and the knife 3d game earlier. Instant load right into game. Was epic. The combining feature is awesome too. Same colors sploosh together and become bigger.
@TreySmith Any idea why ball drop keeps crashing on my device? One more question, were the games created using only nodes (no coding in js) ?
Man that loading speed is insane. Is that for real? Amazing!! Zoom! Zoom!
Yes, you'll be able to do that in the final release, but not in beta. Right now it's 2D only (though technically you could make a 2D game the same way you do in Unity). The final version will have Buildbox 2D, like 2.0, but with nodes. As for joystick, we'll definitely have API for that. Not sure if it's in beta, but it will be in there eventually.
Because it's not loading a ton of images 3D OBJ models are just a small amount of text and you'll notice that these games are using almost zero images. With BB3 you're not required to have assets, you can build it all inside with included models.
