Hi,

 I am not aware of any built in system for that in Pool Manager. Maybe you can inquire on their forum or contact them directly. If indeed there is a way, I'll implement it  in playmaker.

 for now, I would simply loop using the generic iterate custom action.

Be careful not to hit the infinite loop threshold, you can increased that value of course.

bye,

 Jean

What i want to do is when the game start different game objects spawn in my screen not just one object, the Pmt Spawn only allow me one object, so pool manager cannot handle that?
i'm gonna try smartpool

Hi,

 I have contacted Path-o-logical, We'll see if he has something indeed on that matter. Else yes, maybe another pool framework allows for batch spawning.

the solution is easy if you want to spawn multiple prefabs at once just parent it and just drag it in the pool manager prefabs options and you are  ready to go.
