Installing 3rd party addons
« on: March 11, 2018, 10:18:38 AM »
I can't get this to work. From tutorials I watched you just put the supplied playmaker scripts in the playmaker actions folder and they show up in the actions browser. But this doesn't happen for me for any 3rd party addon I try. So what might I be doing wrong?

Hi,
You do not need to place them in the action folder.

What addons did you try?

did you unpack them?

Then where should I place them?

Right now I'm trying to get ProCamera2d and MoreTags to work. They come with playmaker scripts.

Hi.
I just tried with Pro Camera 2D

And they should be in the action list right away :



Do you have any errors in the console?

Hi,
What unity / playmaker version are you using?

Can you see the folder in the project? (like on the picture)

Can you try with a clean project with only playmaker (installed 1st)
and Pro Camera 2D

Maybe i can have a look to the project?
(You can pm a private link to your project or use colaborate)

I've tried a new project and it doesn't work.

I have that folder with the scripts.

But it's not just ProCamera, it's like this with any plugin with playmaker support.

Versions:
u:5.6.3
pm:1.8.5

Hi.
Very strange, never seen an issue like that yet.

Maybe you can try to update unity and Playmaker.

You can also install the latest unity version on a different location if you want to keep using your older unity version.

But before you do make a backup copy from your project.

Are you on windows/mac/linux ?

in player Settings, is playmaker included? (see image below)



You can find player setting in file/build settings, bottom left.

If all does not work can you pm me a link to your project (or the new project) or add me on collaborate so i can test on my end.

Ok, this seems to be an unfortunate combinations of older versions. I had finally made it so I got everything to work without error so I didn't want to update.

I started to fiddle with some scripts and got this error. So I guess they are old?

Code: [Select]
Assets/ProCamera2D/3rd Party Plugins Support/PlayMakerActions/ProCamera2DAddCameraTargetAction.cs(26,23): error CS0115: `ProCamera2DAddCameraTargetAction.OnEnter()' is marked as an override but no suitable method found to override

Assets/ProCamera2D/3rd Party Plugins Support/PlayMakerActions/ProCamera2DAddCameraTargetAction.cs(9,49): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `FsmStateActionProCamera2DBase' could not be found. Are you missing an assembly reference?

Hi.
It might be that the Pro Camera action are older or newer.

But on the file that i tested, the FsmStateActionProCamera2DBase.cs file is included (on the latest version)

Maybe try to re-import Pro Camera

Oh well, sorry for wasting your time.
