CRYENGINE 5.3.3 is now available for download

Today’s update includes various fixes and marks the launch of a new C# Rolling Ball template. We’re also removing the Sydewinder project and making it available as a standalone download from CRYENGINE Marketplace.
Image This is a minor release and is intended to address problems and fix issues rather than add major new features. For more information on the planned features for our next major release, CRYENGINE 5.4, please check out our public roadmap.

We couldn’t make these and future improvements to CRYENGINE without the vital support of the community, so thank you for all of your assistance and feedback.

The C# Rolling Ball template is a simple game which is ideal for people who are unfamiliar with using C# in CRYENGINE. This template demonstrates how you can use the Entity Component to modify the behavior of entities in your game, use physics to move entities around a level, and receive input from the player. It’s a great way to get up and running quickly with C# and CRYENGINE.

The Sydewinder tutorial is now available as a standalone download from the CRYENGINE Marketplace. Sydewinder focuses on programming-driven game development and presents an endless side- scrolling game with a high score counter. This tutorial guides you through all the necessary steps in order to get started from scratch using the CE# Framework , as well as direct interaction with CryEngine.Common. You can download it here.

Could you guys take a look into repairing the r_HDRDebug cvar? THX.
Hey, thanks for pointing that out. We are looking into it at the moment. We'll come back with more info.
Thanks for the Engine update.
I have upgraded to 5.3.3, but some selection-menus in Sandbox not work anymore e.g.g. Human > Modular Behavior Tree, Navigation Type or AIAnchor > Anchor Type
This has also been forwarded to the relevant team and we're testing it with our QA - thanks!

I'm manning the CRYENGINE stations on Facebook & Twitter as well, so come and say hi!
My personal Twittering may contain nuts.

Get to know me.

Hi Cinnebear,

Could you please let us know which r_HDRDebug options (1-5) you are missing the most so we can prioritize work?

I didn't even know there are apparently more than one option. In that case I'm missing all of the options (1-5) . HDRDebug hasn't been functional since the release of CEV a year ago.
We need the cvar to accurately calibrate our lighting values
