Hi all,

Title says it all... It just keeps "None" and that's it, I press on the variable that I want to use which has the XML proxy, and it just keeps going "None" anyway... Any ideas? Thanks

Hi,

 What version of DataMaker do you have? I thought the latest version I put on the Ecosystem fixed this.


 Bye,

I just upgraded to the newest, and error still persists...

I do now get an error though in the log..

Hi,

 Ok, you'll need to go through your actions, one of them has lost it's setup.

did you updated from Unity 4 to Unity 5 without first updating PlayMaker to 1.8 by any chance?

Bye,

I was upgrading from unity 5.3 to 5.4, but that was after this anyway... I had unity 5 from the beginning of the project. Don't have any action or state errors, what shall i do exactly??

Hi,

 You need to go through your Select Single Node Actions and verify their setup, you'll likely find that one of the variable type is wrong now.

Bye,

They're all fine, my single nodes actions are all working correctly when I manually point it at the proxy gameobject. But the variable goes to None and spits out the error when I try to set it to read from variable for example. It doesn't let me set a variable.

I've been stuck on this for days now, is there any way to fix this?

Hi,

yes, that one is a know issue, I can't find a work around unfortunately. Will ping Alex, maybe he can't provide the old api method back.

Bye,

Jean,

Is there a way I can modify the data maker proxy to take in string of XML content from anywhere, like the persistence datapath instead of a text asset?

If not then I will have to wait for a fix

In the XML proxy, there is only a way to get data from text asset which is not really ideal and won't work with what I want to do.. I download an xml file to persistence data path, and then save xml content to a string that later playmaker fsm can use... Unfortunately I cannot set a variable in the xml select single node due to this bug and it's causing a lot of problems. Also some of my prefabs use this action and also lose reference to the proxy because I can't set the variable.... Do you have any ETA on this fix? Thanks

Hi,

 Can you make a screenshot of where exactly you can't set the variable? I know they are several places and from your description, I am pretty sure I did an update to fix this, but want to make sure of where you are exactly.

 Bye,

 Jean
