VR Help / Re: Issues with Get Controller Velocity - always 0,0,0 ?
« on: May 23, 2018, 04:26:40 PM »
Hi @HAIRGROW,

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

Unfortunately this did not work. I also just retried with a clean object, collider, rigidbody. Same result. :(

I will try more when I get home from work tonight.

VR Help / VRTK - Get Controller Velocity - always 0,0,0 ?
« on: May 23, 2018, 09:12:48 AM »
Hi all,

Having a challenging time getting a velocity reading from my Oculus Touch controller.

I am trying to upon Trigger (hold) spawn an object which I then release trigger and throw. Everything works except the throw part. I click and the fireball spawns in my hand. I can hold, move and rotate it as I wanted. When I go to throw and release the trigger it just drops to the ground.

I am watching the velocity in the inspector and it doesn't change from 0,0,0. Neither does the angular velocity. I have tried getting velocity from the RightController and the RightHandAnchor (parent when running) and also the spawned object itself.

I have tried turning the rigidbody component on/off (get/set property). Swapping the order of get / set velocity - not that this matters as the numbers still read 0,0,0.

Script Aliases for controllers are set correctly on the [VRTK_SDK_Manager].

I am obviously doing something wrong as the action works in the video tutes.

Can anyone please tell me where?

Thank you for your time reading. I appreciate your help.

Peace
JG

Hi all,

Wanting to make a multiplayer shooter and am wondering the best way to go about the networking aspects.

Ideally it would be mobile based but as I understand it being realistic I am looking at max 8-16 players in a level at one time (small-ish Quake level). Please correct me  if any of what I say is not true. I would like to make 32+ players but everything I have read points to lots of lag.

- Do I need a service such as Photon for mobile multiplayer? i.e. are there PM actions that can send p2p game info without an intermediate?

- If I decided to make the game for desktop PC instead of mobile, in order to raise the number of players supported would I still need Photon or are there other services (using Playmaker) or ways of going about it.

- Given the small number of players is peer to peer better or should a server be involved?


EDIT: Also no need for player accounts as every game everyone starts the same.

Thank you for your time to read this and appreciate any advice.

Peace
JG

Hi all,

Thought I should post my working setup. I am certain there is a better/more efficient way of organizing it but once I got it to work I just went on with the rest of the project.

You can see it working (here comes the shameless self promotion ;D) on Munchy Munchy free on the Playstore.

Hi guys,

Please check out my new game Munchy Munchy on the Google Playstore:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.OddButAwesome.MunchyMunchy

Pretty much all game logic done in Playmaker except for bits I sourced from the Asset store or similar.

I would truly love to hear what people think. My main beta testers are my two kids. =)

A big thank you to the legends on this forum who helped me make it to release.

Peace
JG

EDIT: Just up'd the trailer:

Hi all,

As per the subject. Related to my previous post: http://hutonggames.com/playmakerforum/index.php?topic=15641.msg72630#msg72630


I am using Stans Assets Ultimate Mobile but their support tells me that the action they have (GADRewardedVideoAd) is just a wrapper and doesn't detect player early exit which is (I thought) a large part of the logic behind the rewarded video thing.

It looks like the 'adclosed' detects only if the ad is closed. Regardless of full watch or part.

Any help would be great.

Cheers

Hi,

I unpacked the Android actions. My set up works for init, loading and showing the reward ad. It was just the checking I was missing.

The answer I got from them was:
----------------------------
Our PlayMaker action contains of these events:
AndroidAdMobController.Instance.OnRewardedVideoAdClosed += OnReady;
AndroidAdMobController.Instance.OnRewarded += Rewarded;
AndroidAdMobController.Instance.OnRewardedVideoAdOpened += RewardedVideoAdOpened;
AndroidAdMobController.Instance.OnRewardedVideoStarted += RewardedVideoStarted;
AndroidAdMobController.Instance.OnRewardedVideoAdLeftApplication += RewardedVideoAdLeftApplication;
AndroidAdMobController.Instance.ShowRewardedVideo();

So there is only one event when advertising has been closed after full watching time.
You can't detect if Advertising was closed before finishing.
----------------------------

To which I replied I would think that the checking of the play through would be a fairly important thing.

There is this:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44427218/how-can-i-know-whether-a-user-has-watched-my-full-rewarded-video-ad-or-skip-ad-i

But it makes little sense to me other than a method exists.

Hi all,

So over a week later I get a response from support. This is surprising since a lot of reviews and posts say how good and responsive the support is.

Apparently there is no PM action to check if the player has watched the full video or cut it short in Stans Ultimate Mobile. I have asked if there will be one in future releases, but alas this does not help me with my current game.

Does anyone know if there is a PM action to do this around?

Thanks
JG

Hi djaydino,

Thanks for the reply :)

Just extracted the Android Native Playmaker zip and couldn't find a specific 'Rewarded Video' action where the GAD has both load and show rewarded. I will check more thoroughly when I get home tho as I have to go to work now and it was just a quick look.

Thanks for the possible lead.

Cheers

Playmaker Help / Stans Assets Ultimate Mobile - Rewarded Video
« on: August 18, 2017, 07:36:37 PM »
Hi all,

I am in comms with Stans support but (understandably) they appear to have shut shop for the weekend and am hoping to knock this issue on the head before the weekend is over.

I was wondering if anyone had experience with Admob Rewarded Videos using Ultimate Mobile. My setup is shown in the pic. I have tried various setting/setups with varying results. None of which are what I expected. I have even tried linking both events to the same state.

Player always starts out with 3 lives (1 used and 2 displayed on the counter). I play and purposely run down time in order to run out of lives and get the offer of watching an ad for more lives.

Once 'watchAdForLives' event is called I do 1 of 2 things. Let the ad run until finish (watch full for reward) or exit watching partway through (watch early exit for no reward).

I am testing this on my device with Google test ads.

TESTS
FSM SETTING (Setup01A.PNG):
'watchAd' links to Reward
'adClosed'  links to AdClosed
RESULT:
watch full = black screen. menu music playing in BG?
watch early exit = black screen. menu music playing in BG?

FSM SETTING (Setup01B.PNG):
'watchAd' links to AdClosed
'adClosed' links to Reward
RESULT:
watch full = rewards given
watch early exit  = rewards given

FSM SETTING: 
'watchAd' & 'adClosed' both link to Reward
RESULT:
watch full = rewards given
watch early exit = rewards given

FSM SETTING: 
'watchAd' & 'adClosed' both link to AdClosed
RESULT:
watch full = black screen. menu music playing in BG?
watch early exit = black screen. menu music playing in BG?


I am hoping to detect if the player watches the full rewarded video then give reward and restart the level, if the player exits early then go to main menu without reward. If player decides not to continue they start for the start of the level/world.

Thanks for reading.
JG

Hi djaydino,

Thanks for the reply. :)

I have emailed their support with some questions.

Have you (or anyone else reading this) have information regarding ways to get best financial returns? No need for exact numbers haha just if you found any better using X or Y methods.

Cheers

Playmaker Help / Any advice on current advertising networks/methods.
« on: July 13, 2017, 07:35:29 PM »
Hi all,

Apologies if I am in the wrong forum section - wasn't sure where this would fit.

As per subject - has anyone any advice they are willing to share on the current state of advertising networks / mediators etc?

I am at the stage where my game is mostly built. I have the level lock/select working and am wanting to place some 'watch ad for lives/coins' to generate revenue. Rewarded watching I think its called?? Not sure. Also a banner on the bottom of the main menu page to randomly appear every once and a while.

I have seen these:
https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/82780
https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/57517

The idea of multiple networks (Admob, Rev,  etc) funneled into the one game sounds good unless I am misunderstanding how it all works. I guess this will be limited by each networks minimum withdrawal amount as well.

Playmaker actions would probs be a must as my actual coding experience is super low.

Anyways if you are willing to share your experiences that would be awesome.

Thanks
JG

PS Developing for Android mostly at the moment. Until I can get my hands on a Mac that is.

Hi again,

The solution in the vid worked a treat! I hope you got my thank you DJDino ;).

It's been a while. Have been making levels and graphic assets since last post.

One more question - how do I stop/restart the timer when the player presses the pause button? I have a pause button which activates the Scale Time action (to 0) but the timer appears to continue. Objects and animations etc seem to freeze but the timer still counts down.

Cheers
JG
