Playmaker ships with Photon Networking. Photon currently requires Unity Pro for iOS and Android. If you have the free version of Unity please delete the Photon Unity Networking folder.

PlayMaker Bug Reporting / Playmaker Beta Testing Group
« on: August 26, 2013, 06:43:31 AM »
We use a beta group to test bug fixes before releasing them as updates. I realized recently that a lot of discussion that happens inside the beta group isn't very transparent outside the group. So you might think a bug isn't being worked on, or that we're not aware of it. We'll try to do a better job getting this info out in the future.

Also if you have a blocking issue or need a bug fix asap, please request to join the beta group! It's the best way to help us fix the problem and get the fix as quickly as possible!


User Showcase / Promote Your Games!
« on: August 24, 2013, 03:45:38 PM »
We're often asked for PlayMaker demos for conferences etc. For example,  BlackBerry wants to show off PlayMaker at Unite and GDC China. I'd love to be able to offer them games from the community to play on the expo floor. I think it would be a great opportunity to show off your games! And also to network with game reps at BlackBerry etc.

Also I'd like to start collecting video of PlayMaker games running in the Unity editor, to show the FSMs updating while the game runs. It would be a good cross promotion, showing off both your game and PlayMaker in action!

If you're interested, please email me. Demo projects should be fairly tidy, since they will be demoed in Unity, and videos should be 1280x720.


Android Help / Android FAQ

Unity does not remove unused scripts when making a build. This means unused actions will be in the build. We're working on our own tool to automatically remove unused actions, but in the meantime, here are some tips:
  • If you don't use Unity Networking you can safely delete the PlayMaker/Actions/Networking folder.
  • If you don't want your app to ask for GPS permissions, remove the location actions: GetLocationInfo, StartLocationServicesUpdate, StopLocationServicesUpdate.
  • If you don't want your app to ask for vibration permissions, remove the Vibrate action.

PlayMaker Announcements / Prefab Apply BUG ALERT!!
« on: August 23, 2013, 05:33:56 AM »
We've recently found an issue with Prefab Apply corrupting FSM data. We're working to get a fix out asap.

Here's a summary of the problem:

If you have multiple prefab instances in a scene, and you override events or variables in actions on those instances, then hit Apply to apply those changes to the prefab, other instances of that prefab can get corrupted. Specifically, action fields that were overridden in other instances can get corrupted. Unfortunately you have to fix those fields manually (or Revert to the prefab).

But until we get the fix out, it's best to avoid Prefab Apply and overriding of individual action fields in prefab instance. Instead expose variables in the inspector and override those.

The problem stems from the way Unity figures out the differences between a prefab and its instances. It just doesn't work well with low level changes to the FSM graph and actions. In fact the fix may well be to disallow low level changes to the graph in prefab instances. Or changes to the graph will mark the whole graph as modified. Basically to prevent Unity from trying to resolve differences between the prefab and the instance.

Anyway, I hope that makes sense! Please ask questions if it's not clear.

I'm really sorry for the problems this has caused, it really sucks when a project breaks and you don't know why! We're working to get a fix out asap.

EDIT: The fix is currently in beta, just needs a little more testing...

There are some limitations in Unity when working with Windows Phone 8:

This means you cannot use Network actions with Windows Phone 8. If you imported Photon, please delete the Photon Unity Networking folder.

You can also safely delete the PlayMaker\Actions\Network folder (although you don't have to).
