PlayMaker Help / Re: Tooltip Errors
« on: August 16, 2020, 12:42:28 AM »
Could you double check that you don’t have a script in your project defining Tooltip in the global namespace? Have you tried it in a new project?

I assume you mean this type of animation event:

Can you confirm the method you’re calling on the target FSM?

Thanks for the bug report. We will investigate.

Looking into it now to see if I can repro here...
Can you post your Unity and PlayMaker version info?

I just tried it here and didn't get any errors.
Were these fresh projects that you were importing PlayMaker into?
From the error, it sounds like you might have a Navigation script in the global namespace that is hiding the UnityEngine.UI.Navigation type.

With official actions, we try to wrap only the part that's missing in a define, so the action is still present even if it doesn't work.

For example, Unity 2019.3 makes MovieTexture obsolete, so the next Playmaker update will wrap MovieTexture actions like this:

Code: [Select]
// (c) Copyright HutongGames, LLC 2010-2020. All rights reserved.

#if UNITY_2018_2_OR_NEWER
#pragma warning disable CS0618 


using System;
using UnityEngine;

namespace HutongGames.PlayMaker.Actions
#if UNITY_2019_3_OR_NEWER
    // Mark Obsolete but keep parameters
    // so user can convert them to new actions.
    [Obsolete("Use VideoPlayer actions instead.")]
[Tooltip("Plays a Movie Texture. Use the Movie Texture in a Material, or in the GUI.")]
public class PlayMovieTexture : FsmStateAction
#if !UNITY_2019_3_OR_NEWER
public FsmObject movieTexture;

public FsmBool loop;

public override void Reset()
movieTexture = null;
loop = false;

public override void OnEnter()
#if !UNITY_2019_3_OR_NEWER
var movie = movieTexture.Value as MovieTexture;

if (movie != null)
movie.loop = loop.Value;

#if UNITY_2019_3_OR_NEWER
        public override string ErrorCheck()
            return "MovieTexture is Obsolete. Use VideoPlayer actions instead.";


The action is still there with Obsolete warnings. But you can still see the parameters to see what the action was doing and convert it to a VideoPlayer action.

The key is to wrap only the unsupported parts, not the whole action.

Hi, that doesn't sound good! What versions of Playmaker and Unity are you using? Are you able to share a project where this happens? If so can you PM me a download link?

Are you installing from the Asset Store?
You may be running into the Asset Store bug where it imports the wrong version for the current version of Unity. More info and solution here:

I didn't even know about that video, thanks ToxicFrog!

You should be able to use PlayMaker > Tools > Export/Import Globals to merge globals from another project. Export Globals in the old project and use Import Globals in the new project to merge with existing Globals.

Let me know if you run into problems with this and I'll take a look...

Yes, it would be making the kind of composite screenshots that are on our Showcase page. It would be advantageous to know PlayMaker since you often need to re-create FSMs to take higher-res/nicer screenshots - so we thought we'd reach out on the forums :)

Also, check this Troubleshooting page:

And the installation guide:

If none of that helps, please post any errors you're seeing in the Unity Console.
