Windows Phone 8 FAQ
« on: August 16, 2013, 11:02:11 AM »
Windows Phone 8 Add-On now available:
Unity Asset Store: https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/#/content/10602
PlayMaker Store: http://www.hutonggames.com/store.html

NOTE: When updating, import the Playmaker update first, then the Windows Phone 8 Addon.

There are some limitations in Unity when working with Windows Phone 8:
http://docs.unity3d.com/Documentation/Manual/windowsstore-gettingstarted.html

This means you cannot use Network actions with Windows Phone 8. If you imported Photon, please delete the Photon Unity Networking folder.

You can also safely delete the PlayMaker\Actions\Network folder (although you don't have to).

Hi there,

can you disable incompatible codes with compiler IF states? if we delete it it means we cannot use it for different platforms. for example i published my game for ios, macos and android. i plan to add phone 8. i do not prefer deleting some code. especially on each update.

also there is a problem with compiling my project. i get errors related reflection. will this package solve my problem?

Playmaker actions use #if platform defines, but some third party code doesn't yet (e.g., Photon).

What exactly does the plug-in do? There's no explanation :)

Does it just give me access to Windows Phone 8 specific stuff via PM or is it essential to get PM in it's current state to deploy to WP8?

Thanks.

Hi,

 Photon is a networking solution that you can find on the asset store:

http://u3d.as/content/exit-games/photon-unity-networking-free/2ey

Simply remove that folder it if it causes trouble when compiling, ( It's on my todo to check this on windows platforms, so more on this soon).

bye,

 Jean

Hi,

 Ah ok, that Add on allows you to publish, that's all there is to it. It provides a different, taylored PlayMaker environment, suitable for Windows Phone publishing

bye,

Hi,

 Excellent, thanks for the feedback. I am currently on Photon update to provide more support and leverage all the issues with windows publishing, so hopefully, in a short while, support will be total for windows store and phone. Currently, it's possible, but fiddly.

bye,

 Jean

On Windows 8.1 you can't compile for windows phone 8. The Windows phone 8 SDK only runs on Windows 8 and not windows 8.1. I just discovered that.
