In case somebody finds this looking for a solution, you can use the custom action called "Open File Externally"

I have a series of VR apps for various clients. I'm tasked to create a unity touchscreen menu that allows our sales guy to touch an icon to launch any given VR app.

I know I could do this with scenes, but each app is its own project and some are very large. They also get tweaked at various times, so merging and updating all apps to a larger app would suuuck. Not to mention many collisions if projects were merged.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Good points, I'll see what it takes to get in early. First I have to find a contact. They don't make it easy. 

Good luck with VeryGame! Curious what you do with that.

Yeah I don't know... there were a few retro full size Atari machines put out by AtGames, who also made the Genesis system. The VCS will have a separate emulator chip built in for atari games I think.

First off I like your thinking. I should clarify though that the VCS is designed with an indie channel in mind, as well as playing full PC titles. "There are a few steps to getting your game submitted and ready for sale on the Atari VCS"

I was most intrigued by the specs, thinking that it might actually run my Unity game which is a tad demanding on gpu. I'm not sure the latest raspberry would run it, the latest qualcom 845 probably would with minor tweaking.

Do love the idea of marketing a game with hardware. Would be a cool upper tier item for a crowd funding campaign at least.

Would be cool to put something out for the VCS. Since Playmaker works with Linux should we expect it to work with VCS?

I tried replacing the .cs with a copy from the repository:

It gives me no errors but the targets go to 0,0,0 and do nothing when IK activated.

I tried creating a new project and importing the ik sample scene after installing PM 1.8.5. I get different results: no errors but 'Prezzle boy'. I got it working on 2018, why not 5.3.4? I'd love to upgrade Unity but project is long in the tooth and I have too much riding on depreceated stuff.   

using playmaker
unity 5.3.4f1

Getting this error which breaks the demo:

Assets/PlayMaker Animator/Actions/GetAnimatorBody.cs(9,39): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `FsmStateActionAnimatorBase' could not be found. Are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?

Also if you did want to add some rotation or looking at the player, you could apply a look at or smooth look at action in conjunction with the move to. 

If you create a parent object that contains the player as the child, the child could rotate while the parent does not. If you set it up so the parent does the translating while the child does the rotating, you can follow the parent, or create another child for more flexibility (ie this 'target child' could change positions at key moments). I like to use 'Move To', ignore vertical for the camera follow. If you create a finish event and connect it to itself, the Move To will be perpetual even when you meet the finish distance. You can adjust move speed to add some play in the movements, like maybe the camera is slower and catches up. 'Target Position' allows you to create an offset, to create desired distance between the player and the camera. Use a vector 3 variable if you want this distance to change at certain moments.

Yeah wow, wish I knew about enable debug flow 3 years ago. An easy thing to overlook, bumping for the betterment of playmaker debugging everywhere.

Looks terrific. We could use a lot of those functions.

Good question. The solution may lie in a purchased asset. I've been trying to get ugs to work but I keep getting errors like this and can't get ahold of the author.

 Assets/ugamesoft/Playmaker/VR2.0/GetRefreshRate.cs(42,33): error CS0619: `UnityEngine.VR.VRDevice' is obsolete: `VRDevice has been moved and renamed.  Use UnityEngine.XR.XRDevice instead (UnityUpgradable) -> UnityEngine.XR.XRDevice'

Is there another tool set you reccommend?

This seems to be the best method for detecting moments of engagement or disengagement. Is there currently a way to do this with PM, or would a custom action be needed?



There is also:
In Unity using the OpenVR plugin, the function to check is: OpenVR.System.GetTrackedDeviceActivityLevel(0)

Playmaker Help / Can't check 'global' event?

For some reason I can't check the 'global' box in the events panel.
