Title: Playmaker Flash Support
Post by: IceMaker on June 10, 2014, 08:09:43 AM
The last thread on this was January 2013.

Have there been any workarounds figured out?

My dreams of uploading to newgrounds is crushed!

(And they are such an easy source of steady traffic.)

Unfortunately Unity stopped development on the Flash exporter:

Without Unity adding the missing features to the exporter it's unlikely that Playmaker will support Flash... sorry! :(

Flash is a pretty crappy platform to create games on, no doubt about it.

There appears to be the ability to get Unity working for HTML 5. I'll have to play around later and see if Playmaker can carry across properly.

iirc Unity 5 is going with HTML5 in lieu of the WebPlayer plugin so if it doesn't work out of the box it's probably safe to assume that it would be patched or made as an addon later, especially given how HTML5 has been widely embraced as of late. It's kind of a mystery as to what UT has decided to exactly do with web at this point, though.
