  • TigerCreate 2 Changelog

    Version 2.10

    A new version right for Christmas time! It’s especially important for Android Developers, this new version will check if you have Java 8 installed (good!) or if you have Java 9 (bad!). There is a problem with Java 9 and codesigning for Android, please use Java 8 till this problem is fixed by Google and all involved parties.

    Improvements:

    • Java 8 link now in Preferences (because codesigning with Java 9 won’t work)
    • Error codes: If something breaks during the export you will now get a popup with an error code and some explanations
    • Preview Mode: Playing is paused if another window is selected
    • Selection (2D/3D-Tool) is now more visible when editor canvas is not selected
    • Refactored UI Actions and their labels on “Miscellaneous”
    • “Code” in Amazon and Android Export Menus is set to integer now

    Fixes:

    • Fixed “Duplicate” with pinned animation
    • Sounds are updated again on changing sound files
    • Play animations no longer pause in the Editor Mode when using the mouse
    • Scrubbing to the end of an animation now works fine even in some special cases that were problematic
    • Un-doing rotation on a flipped node now works as expected
    • Fixed default image for sprites and row height in Scene Navigator

      Version 2.12

      Our last Christmas update really had few nice features (super-sharp text rendering!) but … we introduced an evil bug, too. Sometimes some scenes marked for export were just ignored. As we ourselves cannot ignore this any longer we fixed it.

      Improvements:

      • Support iPhone X and Android super wide displays, check the new option in Project Settings and then use super wide background images for all scenes (then test the scenes in Preview Mode and Simulator)

      • Improved drawing speed in Edit Mode
      • Project Settings are now UNDO-able in all tabs
      • Layout improvements for iOS/Amazon/Google export tabs
      • iOS marketing icon (1024x1024) for the App Store can now be set in the export tab

      Fixes:

      • Fix an internal publishing crash that stopped scenes from exporting
      • The background image for a scene can now be deleted using context menu
      • 16:9 cyan safe area frame now correct on all devices and in all window sizes

        Version 2.15 & 2.16

        Hello, welcome to a really important update, we improved the complete sound-handling to prepare TigerCreate for the next great features we are currently working on.
        Please make a backup of all your projects before you work with the new version, it’s always better to be safe than sorry (just saying …).

        Improvements:

        • Big change: Implemented a complete new and better performing audio engine, replacing the old one
        • Changed Pinning Group system to Tags: Tags are valid for the full project and can be used in scenes
        • Publishing dialogue now has scenes actions - sorting, selection, compression
        • Preview Mode scenes list also support these scene actions
        • Delay values in text/speech animations are now set per language
        • Cursor color when editing text in textboxes now defaults to black

        • Now writing more info in console while publishing, this will help catching bugs
        • Quick Test now uses the currently active language
        • Hint-System: After Initial Delay all hints will show up at the same time, this is better for scenes with lots of touchable objects. For update of older projects please check and adapt the timings!

        Fixes:

        • Fixed UNDO issue with sound volume
        • Fixed issue with making screenshots in Preview Mode and multiple animations on objects

                  Version v2.23

                  In this update we introduce responsive positions, that's a feature asked for many times and it is essentially for example to create your own UI. If "Responsive" is checked in the Transformation Properties under the Position then the Position is depending on the size of the screen where the content is shown. With this objects can be e.g. anchored to the edges and corners of the visible screen, they will always show up.
                  Example: In the editor canvas with 2048x1536 pixels a small object is placed at x = 100, y = 154 and the REGION Frame is at y = 192. The y-pos is about 10% of the screen height here. On an 16:9 device the object would normally not be visible, it is outside of the 16:9 REGION. With "Responsive" checked the object would still be visible, at about 10% of the 16:9 screen height.

                  IMPROVEMENTS

                  • Added responsive positions
                  • Custom languages - if you need an unsupported language just add a custom language and a PNG for the flag
                  • iBooks version is now a number, you cannot add strange text anymore
                  • iBooks cover image now needs an image size where at least one side is bigger than 1400 pixels
                  • Provisioning Profiles now show expiration date
                  • maxOS certificates now show expiration date
                  • Right click context menu in timeline animator now has functionality to select all keys for certain transformations

                  FIXES

                  • Changing loop time while frames/loop time are locked now takes care so frames are not dropped
                  • Fixed missing images when sprites are invisible
                  • Fixed crash caused by improper handling of scene preview screenshots and bindings and cleanup
                  • Fixed saving dirty scenes
                  • Fixed some memory leaks
                  • Restricted messages in console to max 400

                      FIXES
