PlayMaker Help / Re: PlayMaker Photon not working?
« on: July 25, 2019, 06:06:53 PM »
Right now, if you understand PUN 2, then the demo scene has everything that you may need. If you dont understand PUN 2, I think it would be impossible to learn from it. As it is now, its mostly just showing the PUN 2 callback (event) names, how to call a RPC and get event errors and such.

PlayMaker Help / Re: Make money with Playmaker?
« on: July 20, 2019, 09:54:33 PM »
I think have a youtube channel is great. It really helped me to build a community and meet like minded people. It also helped me give back to the general game dev community that helped me.

That being said, even though I have one of the more active channels for Playmaker, its not making money. The playmaker community is relatively small. I had a patreon and made a little bit (I was making a ton of actions and videos back then), and I know 1 or 2 other people that have patreon. They are not making any money. So I think using playmaker as a service to make money is probably less likely.

If you want to make money teaching playmaker related online, make short courses on youtube and make longer ones on udemy or such. Even then based on the numbers I saw, its not great. You could make more money working as a contract dev for people who want to make games/ projects. It really helps to super niche down as well.

I do VR. 90% of my work is VR related. Ive found more success that way, then being like "oh I do everything". This is true of my nongame dev professional life as well.

I would say using a good tutorial channel as a lead developer for contract work is maybe the best way to go. Show how to solve common problems. Each video, let people know you can solve their problems too!

Lastly, there is nothing sellout about have a youtube channel and advertising yourself that way. You can help people AND let people know about your services. If people dont know, who is gonna hire you?

Good luck!

PlayMaker Help / Re: Pun Photon demo room list with ugui?
« on: July 19, 2019, 07:16:08 PM »
It seems to me (correct me if I am wrong Jean), and I guess it depends on the game. But on PUN (docs) they seem to discourage the idea of room listings in general. Why show a listing of rooms? Most players just want to play. Therefore matchmaking according to your specifications is usually quickest for users.

That is super cool. Looks like we may be using it in a project on our end. So I will let you know if anything seems to be broken.  8)

Hi Jean. How is this topic going? Do you want to send me what you have so far, if not finished? I am just learning Photon 2 from the c# side and may be able to help get this completed, or into a working state. My buddy here would like to use it in playmaker, so this may be a twofer (double benifit).

PlayMaker Help / Re: Sharing INT between scenes without Global?
« on: July 12, 2019, 10:58:46 PM »
For basic settings, you can save to playerprefs. This is a built in place to save (small) data. Its not a good place for real saves, as it can be hacked, but great for settings or less  important data.

For real saving, in playmaker, 'easy save' is by far the most popular save solution. You can find it on the asset store.

I have a video here about player prefs that starts you from 0:

PlayMaker Help / Re: Third Party Support
« on: May 04, 2019, 11:05:40 PM »
There is no complete list, as many assets choose to support it themselves. The best way to know is to check their asset store page for details.

https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/templates/systems/adventure-creator-11896

Says they have playmaker support on the asset store page.

VR Help / Re: Frame Rate Drop in Headset when testing in Editor
« on: April 30, 2019, 08:50:43 AM »
This is not only playmaker but the editor in general. If you watch the VRTK videos, they also discuss the same issue. They suggest putting the game view to maximized when play testing in unity for the best results. From Unity 5 till now the situation seems to be getting worse and worse.

PlayMaker Help / Re: SetGUI Text Alternative
« on: April 22, 2019, 02:25:49 AM »
Hi, use textmesh pro. I have a tutorial here:
The only difference between my tut and now, is download textmesh pro using the package manager, instead of the unity asset store.

Textmesh pro is replacing the standard text option in unity.

Hello. Your question is clear. The array list has a reference to the hierarchy object. Therefore, if the hierarchy object is deleted, the array list is referencing nothing. An array list does not actually hold an object, but instead only has a reference.

Sometimes, it is better to reference prefabs in your project folder. Then your scene objects will not affect your array list (since you cannot delete a prefab during game play).

iOS Help / Re: Assetbundle workflow?
« on: April 10, 2019, 01:54:37 AM »
As djaydino says, it works that have playmaker statemachines in asset bundles. The only limitation is they cannot directly use global vars (think like singleton static vars). Instead they just have to search for it. Not a big deal.

« on: April 09, 2019, 09:04:14 PM »
Hi, playmaker does support asset bundles. I dont have personal experience with the apple store, but I know others have used it. There is no reason it should not.

You can download from my github playmaker actions to support asset bundles here: https://github.com/dumbgamedev/playmaker_assetbundle

This unite talk shows the asset bundle browser tool, which is also visual:
I have a hidden video here (because the video quality is low) but if you follow along with what i say, you can see how to use the actions, etc with playmaker.

VR Help / Re: Click to move and iTween alternatives?
« on: April 09, 2019, 08:49:13 PM »
Hi, just a follow up on this. "Normally" in teleporting, you dont need to move to (with a tween), but rather you just set a new position on your gameobject. Moving (with a tween) is for if you want a dash type effect or "walking" to the new position.

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: https://invite-playmaker-slack.herokuapp.com/

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
