PlayMaker Announcements / Playmaker Game Jam 2020
« on: September 20, 2020, 06:53:24 AM »
Hi Everyone,

We are just getting ready for Playmaker Game Jam 2020~

We are shooting for a date in mid October. That should give us around a month to plan. Rules will likely follow something quite similar to last year.

In a change this year, we are looking for a few volunteers to help run things more smoothly. Qualifications? There are not many. Its more organizational work, feedback, and communications (forum posting, twitter, etc).

Like the years before, we are using the Playmaker (Unofficial) Slack chat channel to organize. You can join here:

Feel free to join tag me (tcmeric) or join the volunteer channel with the slack group.

Also as the years before, we will be giving away a few small prizes, but the focus is always on community, education, and fun.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Share New Actions / XR (VR) Input Actions
« on: May 27, 2020, 11:31:13 AM »
Hi, I have not been around the forums too much lately, however you can usually catch me on the slack chat.

Originally I talked of doing an action release for VRTK4 (like I did with VRTK3), however, after consideration, I decided not to support VRTK4, but rather the unity native XR input solution.

Current repo:

Note that the XR input solution from unity uses a different architecture than VRTK3, however, in many ways, it fills somewhat the same void.

Currently, I have actions for getting all the controller inputs values (0 - 1, etc) and controller states (button-down). As well, it includes a proxy script for sending controller inputs to playmaker FSM by fsm events. (It also includes Unity Events and standard delegate/events if you want to use those as well).

More actions will like be added soon. If you need assistance, best place to find me is on slack:

Share New Actions / Game Creator Integration
« on: August 16, 2019, 10:38:27 PM »
Hi, I have created a few playmaker actions to integrate with game creator. Game creator has its own 'action / trigger' system, vars, etc. However, I am primarily using it for its nice 3d person character controller. Has a decent camera, input, animation controller etc that is not overly complicated to use.

Anyways, you can get my playmaker actions here. They are a work in progress:

I am primarily using for NPCs. So playmaker actions like, follow, move to, stop, do game creator actions, etc.

You have asked for it. You have begged for it. You have cried for it. And it is finally here!

Playmaker Game Jam 2019!!! Join us starting Sept Friday the 13th (spooky) for a 72 hour Jam.

VR Help / VRTK4 Now in Beta
« on: April 06, 2019, 02:17:25 AM »
Hi everyone. VRTK4 beta has now been released.

In case you dont know me, I created and maintained the actions for VRTK3 over the past 2 years. They have always been free and available on github.

For VRTK4 playmaker actions, we are looking for a little community support this time around. If you would like to help make actions for VRTK4, please join our playmaker slack chat to connect with me:

Of course, it would help if you have:

1. A little bit of coding skill (even very basic ones).
2. A VR device to test your own actions
3. Some playmaker experience (basic at least).

I will be making one or two "How to Code VRTK4 Actions" videos and best practices recommendations for those interested. All actions made will be hosted for free on github again.

Thanks All

Share New Actions / 360 Image capture (works for VR and 3d Games)
« on: September 09, 2018, 03:50:20 AM »
I created a playmaker action for the open source 360 screenshot package found here on github (also available for free on the asset store):

It works for VR games or normal 3d games. Ive tested it on PC, Oculus GO and Vive. It saves the file to the your persistent data path (note this, is different for each device, but this is the correct way to save data in most cases).

You can change the capture size (1024, 2048, etc is suggested). Supports PNG and JPG format. It automatically encodes the meta data for 360 images and can be posted to flickr, facebook, etc.

Playmaker action can be found here:

Please note, it doesn't appear to capture the UI (uGUI). This appears to be one of its limitations.


General Discussion / Playmaker Unity Compatability Chart
« on: July 31, 2018, 11:09:18 PM »
Hi, This is a request for a table showing compatiable (or recommnded version of playmaker with Unity).

Right now there is a big range of Unity being used 2017.1, 2, 3,4 and 2018.1, 2018.2. Also there appears to be more version of playmaker than before (which I love, because it means new progress!)

However, we are getting a fair amount of questions about it on the playmaker slack channel.

Maybe Jean or Alex can say the min recommended version of playmaker for each version of unity?

Thank you~!

Share New Actions / Physics Compute Penetration
« on: July 12, 2018, 10:47:11 PM »

Here is a custom action for Physics Compute Penetration by request.

You can find the unity documentation here:

If someone wants to put it on the ecosystem, please do  :)

Hi, seeing a few random posts today, thought I should share this action.

You can set the random seed by int, by miliseconds, by ticks, and has a debug to show what the result is (so you can double check the seeds are random).

If someone would like to post it to the ecosystem for me, please do that  ;D

PlayMaker Announcements / Playmaker Game Jam
« on: February 05, 2018, 01:03:39 AM »
Hi, so some of us have been discussing putting together a playmaker game jam. Please post below if you would be interested in joining. It would likely be 48 hours long, over a weekend. A secret theme would be chosen. Rules would be pretty flexible to allow very small teams or single person teams to be able to create.

Judged or ranked, not sure yet. All done online. seems like a good place to do it. Our unofficial playmaker slack channel is also open for chatting.

Comment below if you are interested or have ideas? I have never hosted a game jam before  8)

Share New Actions / Steam VR Load Level Actions + Tutorial
« on: August 24, 2017, 02:21:34 AM »
I created a few actions for steam VR (for free). You can access them from my github account.

Also there is a tutorial going over the whole steam VR load level script (from setup, to how to use the actions). There are lots of quirks about the steam VR load level script, but it does have some pretty cool advantages.
Such as you can show a loading bar between VR scenes, set your own custom skybox or logo in the load screens, etc.

If you have problems with it, don't hesitate to join us at the (unofficial) playmaker slack chat channel. We are there daily:

Today I finished updating actions against the VRTK current github version, which is 3.3.0 beta. However, my understanding that this version of VRTK is pretty close to release.

Please use the master branch. See the updating instructions if you are coming from vrtk 3.2.0 or lower. Remember, ALWAYS backup your project before updating.

Note: there is a 3.2.0 and 3.1.0 branch still available, however, if you are new to VRTK, i suggest using the master branch and the github version of VRTK (not the asset store version).

If you have any problems, feel free to bump me here or visit me almost daily at our playmaker/vr slack channel:

If you have any suggestion for new actions, please let me know. There are SOOO many possible actions, that is is mostly by request now  8)
