Normally we release about once a week, but this release has been pushed forward since there were a couple of annoying issues introduced in to r75, especially with exporting. Let us know if you have any other problems.

New this build is also the new Preview on LAN feature! This is a really cool way to test on phones and tablets, by instantly previewing on an iPad over your Wifi for example. See the tutorial for more information on how to set it up. This is also a license-only feature.



Preview on LAN (new preference setting; licensed only). Test your game on any mobiles, tablets, laptops or other PCs connected on your LAN/Wifi. Also automatically refreshes all devices when clicking Preview again. Great for device testing and networked teams. See How to preview on a local network for more information.


'preview.html' no longer appears in the address bar when previewing

Bug Fix

Check failure exporting projects that use families

Bug Fix

Possible check failure exporting projects that were started before r65

Bug Fix

Hotspots occasionally reset to centered. If this was an issue for you, please open every layout in your project then save it to ensure your project is fixed. (You only need to do that once for each project.)

Bug Fix

Some HTML tags were accidentally parsed in user expressions

Bug Fix

'Save as' after renaming an animation could sometimes cause a check failure

Bug Fix

Duplicating an animation did not copy all its properties

Bug Fix

Physics: rotated objects with an off-center hotspot did not collide correctly

Bug Fix

'Is on screen' could incorrectly be true for the first tick on a layout


A tweak to the project loader might help some projects load a little faster.
