Forum Suggestions / YouTube mod updated
« on: June 11, 2019, 11:54:48 AM »
I've updated the YouTube mod used by the forums. It should now auto-detect YouTube and Vimeo urls and add the necessary tags to the post.

If you're curious what options are supported, this is the mod:

Also, I noticed large images were breaking the layout in posts, so I tweaked the css to set a max-width for img blocks. You can click on the image to see it full size.

Let me know if you run into any issues with either of these changes!

PlayMaker Help / Asset Store Bug!
« on: February 05, 2019, 02:08:03 PM »
EDIT: Jean Fabre has a better guide to working around this Asset Store bug here.

If you have errors with a fresh install from the Asset Store you may be running into this Asset Store bug:

The Unity Asset Store does not properly keep track of which version an asset was downloaded for. For example, if you run Unity 2018.3 and download Playmaker you get the version for 2018.3. If you now open Unity 2017.4 and import Playmaker, the Asset Store will try to import the 2018.3 version and you will get errors!

To fix this, you have to manually re-download PlayMaker when you switch Unity versions. The new Asset Store UI does not make this easy, but you can switch to Shop on Old Store in the Asset Store settings. Then go to the Download Manager, find Playmaker and manually download it again.

Alternatively, you can delete the Asset Store cache (find Hutong Games LLC to just delete Playmaker):

Sorry for the inconvenience! We reported this bug to Unity quite some time ago, and they were able to reproduce it, but we're still waiting on a fix...

PlayMaker 1.9.0p5 is live in the Asset Store and Hutong Games Store.

  • Update in the Asset Store while running 2018.3 to avoid the Asset Store bug where it imports the wrong version.
  • After Importing, Install the latest version from the PlayMaker Welcome Window

PlayMaker Help / View navigation problems?
« on: June 04, 2017, 08:02:12 AM »
A user has left a bad review on the asset store citing these problems:

- The hint menu is broken.
- You can EITHER pan or zoom, not both.

After a decade, they still have not managed to get basic view navigation working!

I honestly have no idea what he means, and he seems unwilling to provide more details. He claims the problems are obvious, however, we have no similar reports that I can find, and I use Playmaker every day myself and don't see these issues. If you have run into these problems or can shed some light on what they might be, please let me know so I can look into it.

Official Action Updates / Call Method custom editor
« on: August 16, 2016, 11:43:24 AM »
1.8.2 shipped with a new editor for the Call Method action.
Unfortunately it has a few issues:
  • Method dropdown was not available if pointing to a variable with no value.
  • Sometimes the dropdown would only show base MonoBehaviour methods.
If you use the Call Method action please try the attached version instead.
If you want to revert to the old UI, delete CallMethodEditor.cs.

PlayMaker Announcements / Unity 5.3 Compatibility
« on: January 28, 2016, 01:24:57 PM »
IMPORTANT: Unity 5.3 users should install the 1.8.0 beta.
There are known issues with and Unity 5.3 that are fixed in 1.8.

1.8 has been in beta for a while and is stable. We just wanted to release it as a public beta since it's a big update. It will become the official version very soon.

Import the latest version from the store, then install 1.8.0 from the Welcome Screen.

If the Welcome Screen doesn't open automatically you can find it here:
MainMenu > PlayMaker > Welcome Screen.

You can also find the PlayMaker.1.8.0.unitypackage in Assets\PlayMaker\Editor\Install.

As always, BACKUP your projects before updating! Projects saved with 1.8 cannot be opened in older versions of PlayMaker!

PlayMaker Announcements / Playmaker Offline Manual
« on: December 25, 2015, 08:45:37 PM »
Finally made some time to look into scraping the online docs to build an offline manual. Here is the first pass at this doc:

The process is largely automatic, so we can take new snapshots as the online docs are updated :)

Please let me know if you run into any problems/bugs with these docs.

Looking into search libraries now, so you can search offline.

Then will be looking into other formats. Maybe chm, pdf, better printable css... Let me know if you have any ideas...

Happy Holidays!
