I'm running 2018.3.0b3
I can't open the Global Variable window or any of the other windows in PlayMaker, except the Playmaker Editor window.  And when that's open, I'm getting this error in the console:

MissingMethodException: Method not found: 'UnityEditor.PrefabUtility.GetCorrespondingObjectFromSource'.

Hi,

 that's because you are trying to use the prefabs and PlayMaker right? Currently, in 2018.3, PlayMaker do not support the new prefab system, so you can't edit fsm, you can only edit the variables shown in inspectors.

 Bye,

 Jean

Yep - that's the issue.  Where would you say that functionality is on the roadmap for future PM versions, out of curiosity?

Hi.
It is probably top priority at the moment, but does need some big changes.
It would actually be a good idea to have a public roadmap.

For the record, it doesn't make my playmaker FSMS unusable (everything still works during playmode), but editing functionality is partially broken or unreliable for reasons you are probably aware.

Hi,

 Currently, you can manually unpack the prefab, and repack by dragging dropping the instance back to it prefab asset.


As far as road map, I can't say, but we are looking for a solution.

 Bye,

 Jean

Hi there, I'm following up to see if there has been any progress on this. This is unfortunately preventing us from working with Playmaker (pressing the Action Browser button in the editor window doesn't seem to work).

Many thanks,

Ad.

This should be fixed. Have you updated to PlayMaker 1.9.1p6?
Update PlayMaker in the Asset Store while running 2018.3 to get the correct version, then install from the Welcome Screen:

Thanks so much for the reply. I *think* I am installing the latest version, but the welcome screen says this.
Even after multiple installs of 1.9.0.p6, the version window says 1.9.0 and I still get the same error:

ArgumentException: UnpackPrefabInstance must be called with a Prefab instance.
UnityEditor.PrefabUtility.UnpackPrefabInstance (UnityEngine.GameObject instanceRoot, PrefabUnpackMode unpackMode, InteractionMode action)

Is there a way that I can check my version? Perhaps the header of the window doesn't tell me what patch I have.

Thanks!

You can check the version in Main Menu > PlayMaker > Help > About

Of course.

I tried it out on another computer (working from home) and it appeared that it worked fine on a fresh unity install (it was indeed p5 btw). Upgrading to the next version worked fine too (!). I'm now getting my head around the new prefab workflow.

Thanks very much!

Ok, it's getting weird now.

The help version says 1.9.0.p6, BUT the issue is still happening. Also, when I open the window, the helpful prefab bit isn't there. I don't know if our version control is scuppering us, but it looks like there is something still wrong.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks.

Can you share your project? If so, please PM a Download link and I'll take a look.
Also, can you post the full error?

And please confirm the full version info for Unity and PlayMaker from the About windows.

Thanks!
