If you need to download the Third Party files as Zips:

Asset processor fixes are welcomed!

The lightning gif on the release notes page looks like it could cause some users trouble with epilepsy. Perhaps consider a less ‘flashy’ image?

Excellent point @Softmints – I’ve communicated this to our team for further action :slight_smile:

the download link still point to the 1.11 version for me, am I the only one?

Same here. I tried different browsers and computers. When the last version was announced, it took several days until it showed up on the downloads page, too. This time it’s been two weeks and I still don’t see the new version.

the link points to the 1.12 when I use the English version of your site, meanwhile in Italian (my case), is still pointing to the 1.11, is it region locked?

That’s pretty weird – sorry for this experience @DanieleColombo D:

I’m looking into why this is still occurring for ya. Out of curiosity, is this persistent on other web browsers and or computers as well?

Interesting – our apologies for the troubles and inconvenience by this process. Stay tuned for updates as we try to resolve this further :slight_smile:

Okay, I didn’t realize I could change the language of the site. mine was german by default. Thanks for pointing it out.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I am one of the Technical Artists on the Lumberyard Support team. We really appreciate you pointing this out to us and I wanted to let you know we are aware of the issue and are working to resolve this as soon as possible. Look for an update to those links in the near future and we are sorry for the inconvenience. For the time being, as it has been pointed out, the English site downloads do function correctly for 1.12!

Thanks everyone,


Interesting – let me hunt down some answers for ya @eks :slight_smile:

There is no 2d view ports in the new installation. no top viewport in viewmenu. most probably my mistake.

Zip files is all compiled files? No need Visual Studio to compile it?

Hey Daniele,

I believe that all links are now updated for download to global regions. Good job. Thanks.
