Flipside Update #27 - Character improvements, reduced save times

- 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.

Character improvements

We've made several improvements to our characters this round:

  • Improved eye movements, which could become too exaggerated on some characters.
  • Reduced arm stretching to feel more subtle.
  • Added slight stretching to legs to reduce instances of feet raising off the floor.
  • Improved hand positioning and feel.


This is the first part of a series of character improvements that we have in the pipeline. We will continue to release improvements as they become stable.

Other fixes and improvements

  • Fixed re-downloading takes right after they're uploaded, cutting save times by over 50%.
  • Fixed slideshow incorrectly playing first video on playback.
  • Fixed a mouth movement regression in the Flipside Creator Tools. Click here to download the updated version.
