AppGameKit 2017.07.19
In this new version of AppGameKit we've added some great new commands that bring you significant visual effects. There are now automatic 3D shadows, 3D Particles and normal mapping support. The build includes many fixes and improvements with full details below.

Note: This version contains breaking changes, bytecode compiled with older versions will not work with this version, and bytecode compiled with this version will not work with older players. So please update your player apps (iOS player is pending Apple approval).

AppGameKit Player Apps
The AppGameKit Player on iOS will now display the Wifi IPv4 address over the mobile data one, if available

3D Shadows
AppGameKit now supports 3D shadow effects. Shadows are cast automatically from the directional light. There are three different shadow modes you can choose from:
Uniform shadow mapping
Light Space Perspective shadow mapping
Cascade shadow mapping
The new shadow commands are;
SetShadowMappingMode
SetShadowSmoothing
SetShadowMapSize
SetShadowRange
SetShadowBias
SetShadowLightStepSize
SetObjectCastShadow
SetObjectReceiveShadow
New tier 1 shadow demo (found in the 3D demo folder)

3D Particles
Added 3D particle commands
Added a 3D Particle example to demonstrate their usage

3D
Added SetObjectNormalMap command to add a normal map to a 3D object that uses the default shaders
Added LoadShaderFromString command to specify the shader source code directly as a string
Changed the mesh to light distance calculation to prefer closer lights regardless of light range when the number of lights is exceeded
If the number of pixel lights affecting a mesh exceeds the limit (currently 4) then the additional pixel lights will be applied to the mesh as vertex lights if possible
Added support for tangent and binormal attributes in 3D objects loaded from external files
Objects using a normal map that don't have any tangents or binormals will have them generated at runtime
Added normal mapping example project
Added support for the vertex color attribute for 3D objects using the default shaders

3D Model formats
Upgraded to version 3.3 of the Open Asset Import Library for 3D model loading
Currently supported 3D model formats are: .x .fbx .dae .3ds .obj .b3d .3d

2D
DrawLine on all platforms will now draw the last pixel of a line whereas previously the last pixel was left blank
Fixed DrawBox drawing unfilled boxes incorrectly if the virtual resolution didn't match the window size

2D Physics
Fixed SetSpritePhysicsOff causing a crash if called inside a contact loop using GetFirstContact and GetNextContact
Fixed a crash when setting a physics sprite to a width or height of 0

Raw File Paths
Fixed LoadVideo not working with "raw:" file paths on non-Windows platforms
Fixed LoadMusic not working with "raw:" file paths on all platforms

iOS
Added RequestAppReview for iOS 10.3 to rate the app from within the app itself
Changed iOS splash screen to fade to black instead of white before displaying your app
Fixed OpenBrowser on iOS not accepting URLs containing spaces

Facebook
Added FacebookActivateAppTracking command to send app events to the Facebook app console and record app installs

Text
Added ShareImageAndText command to share both an image and text at the same time

Arrays
Fixed assigning default values to an array of strings in a function generating an error if the number of values didn't match the array size exactly

Mac
Updated Mac projects to use libc++, any Tier 2 projects will need to update their setings accordingly

Multiplayer
Fixed spelling mistake in GetSocketListnerConnection command name, this is a breaking change and will need to be corrected in existing apps
Fixed network client disconnect not being forwarded to other clients
Added SetNetworkAllowClients to restart client listening after calling SetNetworkNoMoreClients
Added KickNetworkClient to kick a network client off the network, only the host can do this

Strings
Fixed ReplaceString cutting off the end of the string if the replace count limit is met
Fixed a memory leak in CountStringTokens and GetStringToken

Ouya
Fixed Ouya Tier 2 template failing to compile

Android
Fixed Android GameCenter commands crashing if passed an empty string for the leaderboard name
Exported Google Android apps should now be compatible with Android TV
Fixed ViewFile and ShareImage failing after the first attempt in exported APKs

Virtual Buttons
Fixed virtual button commands reporting the wrong button ID in error messages

Tier 2
Fixed Android ShowCaptureScreen in Tier 2 causing an exception
Removed old Visual Studio projects, AppGameKit now only supports VS2015
Support for Visual Studio 2017 has been delayed, we're awaiting a bug fix from Microsoft to continue support
Added a 64-bit template project for Windows using VS2015
Added a 64-bit version of the Windows interpreter to the Players folder, it will not be used automatically to maintain backwards compatibility

Plug-Ins
Added support for 64-bit plugins in the 64-bit Windows interpreter, 32-bit plugins can only be used with the 32-bit interpreter
Added Example Plugin source code to the installed files on Windows, Mac, and Linux
Fixed a memory leak when calling plugin commands

Debugging
Debugging from the AGK IDE will now attempt to use the loopback addres if no other IP addresses could be found

Linux
Fixed DrawLine on Linux sometimes being off by one
Fixed GetResumed and GetPaused not working on Linux
Linux apps should no longer exit when a socket disconnects
