Unity 2018 compatibility?
« on: May 04, 2018, 11:38:32 AM »
Hello,

I just switched my project to Unity 2018.1 because I'm very interested by his new features but I'm a bit worry about Playmaker because, there are some errors (procedural meterial folder is incompatible so I just deleted it) and there is no way to work with the uGui addon.

I saw on Twitter that uGui will be integrated to your next release, that's nice. But what about other addon like Arraymaker (not yet integrated in my project, but I will need it soon).

In general, I'm very happy to use Playmaker but I also have the feeling that the documentation (wiki) and some addons are a bit obsolete... It's not always easy to understand what to use. Even, the tutorials on YouTube are so old.

Hi,

The new Playmaker version should be released very soon. (which will be compatible with 2018.1)

Array maker will not be standard in playmaker (but there are array actions)
You can get 'Array maker' on the Ecosystem
as well as ugui actions and many other custom actions/packages

The ugui action on the ecosystem might be slightly different than the ones in the next release, but both should work.

Hey all.

Was just wondering if we have a timeline on the new patch for play maker compatibility for unity 2018?

Thanks

I'm running into a problem in 2018.1 version as well. Importing Playmaker from the asset store fails. From the menu I only get the tools and install playmaker option. Installing playmaker doesn't help....

Hi.
Playmaker 1.9 is in the final testing stage, so hopefully it will be released in the next few days (depending on unity also as they will review before accepting an update)

Make sure you update while running Unity 2018.1 before importing. Note, there are bugs with the Asset Store showing Import instead of Update and also not getting the correct package for the current version of Unity. But once you manage to get the latest package it is compatible with 2018.1!

You can also manually delete the PlayMaker/Actions/ProceduralMaterial folder to get an older project to work in 2018.1. 2018.1 removed built in support for Substance materials.

One other thing: 2018.1 changed the way it renders textures in the editor. If Project Settings > Player > Color Space is set to Gamma (now the default?) Playmaker editor texture will look a little bright! You can switch to Linear, or wait for 1.9.0 to fix this issue...

Hi Alex - any ETA on 1.9?  Do you happen to have an update list of changes?

We're finishing up the beta. We have a release candidate and I'm hoping we can get it out this week.

Plamaker 1.9 works very well in my Unity 2018.1 project, thank you very much for this new release.

And I really like the new features and visual improvements :-)

Imported 1.9 all seems good except I cannot find the global variables tab anymore? I need to create a global so it creates the playmakerglobals.asset I can then replace with my own backup. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi,

 yes, globals only exists inside playmakerglobals.asset

 I am not sure what you mean by global variable tab and how you have made your backup, normally if you want to totally overwrite, just replacing your  playmakerglobals.asset will do, else you need to export and import globals using PlayMaker tools menu.

Bye,

 Jean

HI
what about playmaker 1.9 + Vuforia to unity 2018.1.6f1? it's does'nt work at all.
I get a compile error when downloading vuforia from ecosystem.

There is a fix bug coming soon?
