New Flowlab version: The Procrastination Update ⏲️

I just deployed an update to the editor a few minutes ago. I dubbed it “The Procrastination Update” because it contains all sorts of stuff that I wanted to get in a long time ago:

New Stuff

  • Background behaviors
  • Camera zoom
  • Music between levels (set object to “keep between levels”)
  • Extractor now can extract an obect’s unique id number

Changes

I also modified the way the behavior window displays running objects:

Now when you click on an object to open the behavior window, when you click play in that window only that object’s running behaviors are displayed

When you open the behavior window from an object in the library and click play, then all objects of that type are displayed (this is the way the behavior window works now).

Also, the behavior window gained a small indicator label at the bottom to tell you which one you are seeing.

Bug Fixes

  • Some people had sound upload problems
  • Full screen shader problems
  • Memory leaks when destroying some objects
  • Child objects not inheriting click triggers
  • Behavior block run order not always updating immediately after dragging

As always, please let me know if you encounter any issues with this release!

So, from my understanding it’s out of debug mode?

Thank you so much @grazer!!! Once I actually get a computer (sad times :frowning:) I’ll finally make my agario ripoff, hopefully without crashing all of flowlab again :laughing:

Thanks so much!

Very nice, I bought the indie subscription just a few days ago and I really enjoy the engine!
Do you have any plans for making a multiplayer for the exported version?

I’m confused on what camera zoom is. Could someone explain?

It zooms in on the level, instead of you having to resize everything :partying_face:
