Flipside Update #24 - Ghost Mode and a ton of bug fixes

- by Lux

Please note: This update is only available for those who are part of our multiplayer beta. If you're looking to collaborate on a show or just want some of the other goodies, sign up for the multiplayer beta here. We're working hard to quickly get these updates back into the general release branch so everyone can enjoy them, but that's still an update or two away.

Go invisible with Ghost Mode

You'll find our new Ghost Mode button on both the desktop camera switcher or the in-VR camera switcher. This will make your character invisible so you can play director without getting in the way of the shot, or animate props by grabbing them and moving them around. Ghost Mode also has the ability to move the world around and scale it up or down by grabbing it with one or two hands, just like Builder Mode.

Clearing sets got a little safer

It takes work to get a set setup exactly how you like, and it should be hard to accidentally undo all that work. That's why we've added a confirmation step whenever you use the "Clear All" and "Reset to Original" buttons on the underside of the Sets palette.

Additional bug fixes and improvements

We've also made lots of smaller improvements throughout the app. These include:

  • Added whitelist of components allowed to be used on sets and characters.
  • Improved foot distance calculation to fix bow-leggedness.
  • Fixed cases where imported props that were deleted online could cause a set to fail to load
  • Fixed "clear all" and "reset to original" on sets over multiplayer
  • Improved error handling when a sky is not found
  • Auto-retries multiplayer connections if disconnected unintentionally
  • Clear sent invites when you leave Flipside to prevent stale invites being received
  • Fixed order of notifications so most recent invites appear at the top and new ones appear at the top as well
  • Fixed recalling menu with the right hand on Vive returning it near the left hand
  • Disabled menu show/hide on Oculus running through Steam so teleprompter controls can be used
  • Handheld camera remembers its direction between uses
  • Active camera light working over multiplayer
  • Fixed issue with 360 video uploads generating black previews and thumbnails
  • Fixed issue preventing interactions from recording on larger sets
  • Fixed issue with OBS settings storage
  • Fixed issue with changing sets with a recording inserted causing the new set not to fully load
  • Fixed Twitch chat panel being ungrabbable and made in-app instructions clearer
  • Moved Twitch chat panel to UI layer like the other Show Tools
  • Fixed issue with unloading a recording cartridge while still loading
  • Fixed link to YouTube videos in slideshow
  • Various performance optimizations
