New Update - Shaders

I just deployed an update with a few small bug fixes, and one new behavior.

The bugfixes:

  • Fixed play mode from sprite editor
  • Fixed release notes displaying in game
  • Fixed behavior error messages not clearing promptly
  • Improved deleting objects targeted by behavior block

New Behavior (subscribers only - sorry)

Shaders Block in properties.
The shaders block adds a post-processing filter to your game for special effects, or just to change the overall look. The following shaders are added so far:

  • Blur
  • DotScreen
  • FilmShader
  • Glitch
  • GraphicsShader
  • GrayScale
  • Hexagonate
  • Hq2x
  • HueShift
  • Invert
  • Pixelated
  • RadialBlur
  • Scanline
  • Shockwave
  • Threshold
  • Wavy

It’s easier to see them in action than to explain, so try them out and let me know what you think, or if you have problems. Here’s a small example that shows some of them:

If you go into fullscreen, then back out it looks like that.

Also, this is EASILY possible without it being a feature but, could there be a flash feature?

Thanks for reporting this issue @DinoDev

could there be a flash feature?

What do you mean?

A flash, kind of like games where you get knocked out or in an intro, the screen flashes white like a camera.

It’d be cool to have a flash effect that we could change alpha and duration on.

I think you might be able to do that with threshold - did you try that? if you ease the Limit value between 0 - 100 that should make it flash between black and white.

Didn’t try that, thanks for the help!

Could there be a “everything but this object” or “but this object” feature, so you can do the whole game but a specific object?
