User Showcase / Re: My first game "Alleys" Mobile Escape Game
« on: November 16, 2017, 10:35:51 AM »
Hi, looks great! I posted about it on the Playmaker thread on the Unity forums but then noticed that the youtube video is unlisted. Is it okay to post?

Some marketing suggestions:
- Add a link to your site in the video description
- Contact Made with Unity: https://unity3d.com/unity/faq/3362
- I think many people will be interested in how you made a game without coding, so tweets, posts, blogs etc. about that could be popular and a good way to promote the game :)

Use Get Touch Count to test the number of touches:

I've attached an example.

Just to expand on this answer a little, a common pattern is to use questions to name simple branching states, and the event names are the possible answers. So the graph reads more like a flow chart. This pattern is easy to read and understand - important as a project grows and you revisit parts that you made a while ago!

I agree this would be useful. It's one of the design choices I made early on that I would change in retrospect.

I plan to implement this as new FSM, State, Events and Variables Inspector windows that can free-float with the ability to turn off the Inspector panel in the main editor. This gives you some flexibility, e.g., have the Variables Inspector open to debug at runtime while still looking at the State Inspector in the main editor. Or you could turn off the Inspector panel and dock the new Inspectors wherever you want.

Playmaker Bug Reporting / Re: Action Browser Not Working
« on: October 23, 2017, 01:47:33 PM »
Hi, when did it stop working? Did you import something new, e.g., custom actions?
Did you try unchecking Preview? Obviously not a fix, but might let you keep working while we figure out the problem.

If you can send the project, PM me and I'll take a look at it.

From the error message it looks like it's this Asset Store bug:

If the info in that thread does not fix the issue please let me know!

Feature Requests / Re: Show that an FSM is dependent on other FSMs

Project level tools (dependencies, search etc.) are definitely going to be a focus in upcoming updates. Thanks for posting your solution, it helps us to see what people would find useful and to visualize potential solutions.

Great suggestion! This was really quick to add - it will be in the next update :)

Thanks, I'll investigate this.

Playmaker Bug Reporting / Re: Compilation error

Hi, sorry for the delayed response. I'll try to repro and let you know. Since it breaks in a very specific scenario you should also submit a bug report to Unity. There may not be a lot we can do about it on our end.

Good catch! I hadn't noticed this before since I generally turn off scrollbars in Prefs and use middle mouse button dragging instead. Will fix for next update. Thanks!

Ahhh, I just realized you’re looking at the summary in the first post. I need to update that with the current data from CrowdIn. Not sure where German stands, but would love the help! We will be updating the text strings with new strings added in the last few updates, so it's an ongoing effort! Thanks everyone!

Hmmm, just checked on Crowdin and Spanish is 100% Approved. It might not have made it into an update yet, but I'll make sure it gets into the next one...

Thanks for your work on this!

Playmaker Bug Reporting / Re: Compilation error

Ahhh, ok I didn't realize that you're trying to compile in Visual Studio, not Unity.
There is an issue that I've been going back and forth with Unity concerning this. They changed something in the way they build the VS projects. It really should just work, and I don't think there's a lot we can do on our end (but I could be wrong). Hopefully, we can come up with a fix soon. In the meantime, you will need to switch to Unity to compile the project and check for errors (I'm assuming that's the reason you're compiling in VS?)

On the off chance, also double check that you're not using the new Unity scripting back end currently in beta, that can cause problems.

Are there any other errors in the console before this?
