Developer Preview Release Soon

Hey everyone,

We're releasing an update to the developer preview today with the following fixes and features:

* Renamed the tutorial progression to "Campaign".
* The tutorial progression now follows a branching system instead of a straight linear progression.
* Added optional Science help bubbles to the tutorial text bubbles.
* Updated UI and text bubble colors to differentiate between various types of hint bubbles.

* A new feature has been added which will log messages which could be translated but aren't currently present in the active language pack to the file "untranslated_messages..log" in the working directory. Add the line "log_untranslated" : "1" to your options.txt file to enable.

Bug Fixes:
* Various crash fixes.

Anti-inflammatory designs queued for testing!

See the blog for an update on Foldit player designs that will be lab-tested at the UW Institute for Protein Design. We'll be testing 100 different designed proteins to see if they bind to the IL6R target, which could be useful for treating COVID-19.

New Release!

Hey everyone,

We've just pushed an update with the following fixes and changes:

* Added option to the options menu: "fixed camera pivot.". If unchecked, the camera will always pivot around the center of the screen, instead of around the last thing manually focused on.

Electron Density:
* Added "radius" slider to electron density panel to view only electron density data within a ball of the given radius.
* Added option to manually enter values for threshold and radius in the electron density pane.

* Added Score filter for Buried Unsatisfied Polar Atoms.

As always, a big thanks to our developer preview players for helping to test this release!
