February 15th – Version 2.2.4 came out the other day for Android and iOS, but I’m not making a new post for it, nothing new, just some backend changes and tweaks. However, I did add one quick feature for iOS users, you can now listen to music from background apps while animating!
New year, new updates. Here we go, starting off with 2.2.2. (This update is now out for both Android and iOS users!)
Version 2.2.3 is a quick hotfix for an issue introduced in 2.2.2.
This update still isn’t a “major” one, but there’s some new interesting features along with bug fixes.
I think the above image sums up the main points nicely, but here’s the full changelog for your eyeballs.
- New button on all frame thumbnails, opens menu to allow you to copy multiple frames.
- Load a stickfigure when in “Creation Mode” to be used as the background, for use as a guide.
- Textfields now pan with stickfigures, and are also now included in onion skin.
- Segment angle can now be set with +/- buttons.
- When not playing animation, tap “Stop” button once to reset view, double-tap to set view to camera position.
- If you experience crashes when opening a large project, there is now an option to open less of a project (less frames loaded). See the “Open project” window for more information.
- New sounds, search “222” in the sound import window (Pro only).
- Many small bug and crash fixes.
The biggest new feature of this update is for iOS users, who were very restricted in the way they could get new MP3 files (only with the help of a computer and iTunes). Now things are different, and easier – but there’s two different ways of opening an MP3 file with an iOS device.
The above image shows the two different methods.
- If the sound file is coming anywhere besides a website/website browser, you can probably select it (long-press) and “Import with Stick Nodes Pro”.
- If you’re downloading a sound file from a download link on a website, it’s a little more involved, and this is because iOS simply doesn’t let users download MP3 files. But the “solution” is simple, all you have to do is type “stknds://” before the URL and run it. Stick Nodes Pro will open and prompt you to download the MP3 files.
So if the URL is http://example.com/sound.mp3, these are valid ways to get the file:
That should be a big help for iOS users. As for where to find sounds, I still recommend just Googling for it, like “fart mp3”, “oof mp3”, “do u no de wae mp3” etc…
Do remember, this method will allow you to download LARGE MP3 files, but Stick Nodes won’t let you use these large files in your animations. So don’t bother downloading music files or any files over 256kb.
Okay, I’m gonna go now, hope you guys enjoy the up-… SOMEBODY TOUCHA MY SPAGHET!!!
