Hi,
i just played it a little bit and here is some feedback :

on the 1st 2-3 times i had wasd issue after restarting i could not repo it anymore.
it was like the "A"  button was being pressed the whole time

the text box :
it would be better to be able to click on the whole text box to go to the next text than on only on the small trianlge

border less window mode would be nice

Camera rotation when object selected would be nice if it rotated around the selected object.

unclear when group is selected only 1 soldier has a diamond above its head

unclear if bottom soldiers are deployed :
it would be nice if they would have a different color or something, also show highlight color when a soldier is select or when sever are selected.

select and move issue :
When one selected and then hold right mouse and drag will move the selected soldier.
You are probably using on mouse down instead of on mouse up

that's it so far,
i only did a small part of the tutorial so far, but it looks good :)

i will play some more later.

Hey,

Thanks for buying.

And many more thanks for spotting the bugs. One more user spotted the weird bug which takes the camera off screen. I couldn't repo it anyway. Looks like it's happening with you too.

I heard it's something with the getaxis of Unity.

Also the feature requests are nice. Let me work on those.

Please play more and keep me updated. In level 2 the action gets really intense and it's a kinda stretch test of the game systems.

Yes, key mapping is coming up in the next updates.

But your video is not working.

Thanks, the video was helpful.

I'm using the cinput assetstore package for custom input management and key rebinding. There seems to be no way to remap axis keys of the unity input manager.

Hi,
Indeed they cant be changed.

how are you doing the movement?
set velocity?

Maybe better to use key down actions instead of axis (there seems to be a bug in there anyway :) )

I will try to make a short video from my movement manager on my tetris sample, or you can get the sample on my website (http://www.jinxtergames.com/playmakertutorials/playmaker-sample-files/) if you want (place it on a new project with playmaker included)

Thanks for sharing.

Yes, I'm replacing the entire getaxis based movement system with button based system.

But if you need some help let me know, i will make a sample

Your samples are awesome! They are helping me out in lot of ways already. Especially, the custom actions you made are saving lot of work.  :D

Thanks for everything. Will keep posted as I progress on this.

The next update is now live. Can you please check if the axis bug is still there? It shouldn't be.

Good graphics and gameplay, some of it is buggy that's been pointed out. The movement wasd issue is something I've ran into as well.

Custom keybinds would be awesome! Thanks for sharing
