playmaker doesn't seem installed, but all is imported[SOLVED]
« on: October 08, 2016, 10:14:43 PM »
in unity 5.4.0b24, after downgrading my project from a 1.5 beta, playmaker assets are imported in the project, but the playmaker menus don't exist. how do I get unity to recognize that playmaker is installed?

I even "reimported all" and playmaker still doesn't show up. under component, the Playmaker tab has greyed out options.

It can be caused by console errors and other things.

The best solutions list I have found is here on the Troubleshooting page:

Scroll down to "Missing Playmaker Menu"

Hi,

 also, if you have no errors in the console, you need to open the welcome screen window, and from theire you'll be guided for installing PlayMaker, it's a two step process.

1: install the package from the Asset store
2: run playMaker Welcome screen to update PlayMaker.

 Bye,

 Jean

Had the same issue after some faulty data maker install, had to remove all playmaker related folders and reinstall, and luckily all FSM content in the project was intact.

Hi,

 Yes, few things :

-- be careful of the PlayMaker global assets, that sits inside the PlayMaker folder, make sure you don't delete this else you'll loose global variables.

-- be careful with templates, they are saved by default inside PlayMaker folder too.

-- To make sure an install went fine. Always check the menu "PlayMaker/Help/About PlayMaker" which will tell you what version if installed, compare it with the version from the asset store, and then you'll know if the update process was succesful

-- ALWAYS back up before doing such dramatic cleaning of project assets. It does work indeed, but just to play safe :)

Bye,

 Jean
