This build fixes some issues with r164, particularly that family instance variables were broken. The lag compensation system has also been significantly improved and now works slightly differently, so please review the 'Multiplayer: real-time game' example for the new way to use it. There have been some other reliability improvements to the Multiplayer system, including better connectivity robustness and fixes on the signalling server.

If you missed it, review the r164 release notes which introduced the Multiplayer engine.

Also today we reached 1 million downloads! To celebrate, if you download Construct 2 today (17th March) while logged in you'll be entered in to a free prize draw!



Multiplayer: the lag compensation system has been re-worked and is now much more accurate. The LagCompensationX/Y expressions now also return the absolute position, not offset. The 'real-time game' example has been updated. Other games using lag compensation will also need to be changed. There is also a new LagCompensationAngle expression to take in to account historical angle as well (important for games like the Ghost Shooter Multiplayer example)
