PlayMaker Help / Re: Basic enemy AI Movement for top-down space shooter?
« on: December 20, 2019, 08:40:35 AM »
A free simple spline tool is out on github:

I made some playmaker actions for it for basic use cases:

Maybe you could program your own spline in playmaker??? But it wouldnt be recommended.

For bullet impacts and holes, you might want to look into a pooling system that has its own spawn, rather than create object. Since create object and destroy will start to create lots of garbage quick.

In the start state, just have an input listener for more than one type of input.


Start State:
Listen for space key --> space key event
Listen for VR trigger key --> trigger key event.

You can listen for as many types or keys of input as you need, in any state. Just add more than one action.

With all that open, click on the GC column, to sort the highest items of GC to the top.

For example, we can see that the weapon property update is 13.3.

You cannot open a deeper level than the update method? Can you share a screenshot?

Also, the profiler works well with Playmaker. Click the deep profile button when you game is playing. Look for any visual spikes in the profile and set the timeline to that location.

Try changing your profiler to Heirchery. Then expand sections with the most garbage. Keep expanding them until you find the source of the most amount of garbage collection. It should give you the method or methods that are causing the most problem.

Its probably best that you send a message to the creator of the package. They may not see a message here on the forum and they can probably help you best.

You may need to contact the person who you bought the package from, as they can probably help you best.

Also maybe on the regular unity forums, as there may be people more familiar with these small details of quest.

Hmm, looks like they got corrupted somehow. Thank you for sharing. The good news, is we are very close to having them on the ecosystem, including some minor updates/fixes!

It is unlikely to be the code itself, but rather after using collaborate. Otherwise, they are pretty standard unity scripts /playmaker actions. If something else comes up with them again, please let me know, thanks!

Hi, try not using the built-in finished event. Make your own event to use in this action. Built-in Finished events typically fire right away.

Just to add on to that. Wait actions also run on the update loop. The wait action also checks a float during that update. So if the everyframe action is just checking a bool, int, float, etc, it would be the defacto the same.

Agreed, worry not, unless you have 1000 fsm doing this :)

PlayMaker Help / Re: Loading in VR - how to prevent display freezing?
« on: October 10, 2019, 10:41:04 PM »
Hi TF.

The scene that you are loading into probably has too many resources. Opening all of those resources (materials, models, music) all take time.

Your best bet it to just publish out this first scene, and then check the build logs. This will let you see what is in the scene. Look to see where you can cut the fat. Look for especially large textures, music, etc. Also are you using substances from substance designer? If set up improperly, they can take a long time.

Next, most games use loading screens.

Splash --> Menu --> Loading Scene --> Game.

I have a tutorial, and actions for a cheap asset to handle VR loading screens.
