A tutorial on how to make a "Z-targeting" system ala the 3D Zelda games. You lock on to an enemy and when you move, the camera orbits around the enemy while the player is still visible to the camera.

Hi.   Would anyone be able to post a tutorial on Picking up and carrying objects, I've only managed to find one on YouTube but it's not very clear and is for a first person so it attaches to the camera, and is using actions that are not in the action browser but it doesn't tell you which add-on is used.

I'm trying to work out how to get my 3rd person to pick up items to use as triggers for puzzles and such like, thanks for any help.

Hi, I've watched some of the official playmaker tutorials but the ones covering 2D from what I've gathered are quite out dated.

Does anyone know or could recommend some upto date tutorials on using playmaker for 2D games and would be even better that are designed for android.

Thanks

Hi,

 it doesn't matter the target really, IOS or android, Windows, Tizen would not make any difference in the way you design the interaction.

I would get the 2d Platformer remake I did posted on Github, it's the 2d platformer from Unity Learn, 100% rebuidled with PlayMaker, it's definitly something that will help you study how 2d can be controlled with PlayMaker.

Let me know if you have questions.

 Bye,

 Jean

I would like a tutorial showing a good way to make a character creation screen similar to old school RPGs where one can increase/decrease attributes, choose perks and skils from pop-lists. And increase/decrease the ranks in the selected skills

I'd love:

1. A rhythm game tutorial
2. A slower walkthrough/breakdown of the Simon Says game that Sebas made since some of the elements of it are missing
3. A tutorial on the 2 platformer that Jean Fabre remade using Playmaker from the UnityLearn since the scene isn't set up on the one I downloaded isn't set up.

Hi,

What is not setup on the 2d platformer? the package has a working scene, in the "PlayMaker Unity 2D Demo" folder, have you opened it?

 Bye,

 Jean

Hi, where exactly do you have problem with this? is it the UI management, the data or the rendering and management in game of the final character setup?

 the problem with doing a tutorial on this is content, I guess I could go with simple shapes but it will not be nice...

Bye,

Jean

The menu GUI with the options is something I can do. It doesn´t actually preview the options but simple forward and backward buttons for each category that change an integer is something I can do no problem.

Content, is also ok, Simple head shapes with flat colors and face features sprites with transparency. I have someone who can do the hairs.

For handling Data I intend to have all the selected options saved into an .xml file, since I work well with them, and they are very well integrated in my workflow.

But I have no idea what is the best way to actually implement this. I Have no idea what would be a good way of managing the textures, Should I use a texture atlas? etc...
The closest thing I did to this was a very simple texture swap, I am quite lost on where to start,a nd how to do it.


As for the tutorial not being pretty, due to just using simple shapes, that doesn´t bother me at all, as long as I can understand the algorithms well enough to implement them myself with my own assets.

Other then the assets and the menu, I don´t know where to start.
