A 45 minute in-depth video making a player health system with health pickups in Playmaker.
Playmaker is very very cool! I'm loving tinkering around with it.
I know you've probably got a lot of work on at the moment, but have you got any further with EX2d actions?

Thanks! We get a lot of feedback that Playmaker is fun to use - which is really awesome!
I picked up ex2D during the asset store madness sale, so I took a quick look at it just now, and whipped up some custom actions:
Please add stuff you'd like to see to that thread...
Thank you very much!!
I'm using Playmaker in my Ludum Dare entry and it's so fast to get stuff working. I don't stop talking about it at my day job.

Thanks! I found your page on Ludum Dare and played the build - cool idea! I'm a big fan of this kind of 2d physics games. In case you're looking for feedback , it might be interesting if flapping were more floaty (like the current glide), but you could trigger a dive (like the current fall), to dodge, land or pick something up quickly. Basically reversing the glide and default gravity if that makes sense. So it's fun to lightly flap around, with occasional quick dashes (at the expense of height). Anyway, sorry for the unsolicited feedback , feel free to totally ignore! Looking forward to seeing your progress... and thanks again for helping us spread the word about Playmaker!
Added 3 more videos in the series:
08 - Playmaker and iTween
An introduction to iTween, how it's integrated into Playmaker, and what you can use it for.
09 - Pop Up Manager
Use a manger to randomly select from a group of physics objects, and make them animate.
10 - Platform Puzzle Chest Opening Game
Sets up a complete mini-game of a simple color puzzle on four button/platforms that opens a treasure chest when the player wins.
The entire series is now online:
Camera Motion and Control with Playmaker and Unity3D coming soon!
Fully working game samples made 100% in Playmaker with default actions and NO scripting:
A huge thanks to Mike Hergaarden (M2H), for allowing us to port his excellent C# Game Examples to Playmaker!! http://u3d.as/content/m2h/c-game-examples/1sG
Documentation and more samples are still in progress, but I wanted to get these out there
Alex, nice work. Is the source(Playmaker) C# available?
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits. -- Albert Einstein
Thanks! The core FSM and editor are in a DLL, but it ships with the source code for all the actions (which do most of the work). I'm considering making the runtime FSM source code available, but it could create a bit of a support nightmare if the runtime diverges from the editor - which we won't be releasing source code for!
The entire camera series is now available on YouTube:
Also, you can download the demo objects used in the Game Design series here:
Just want to say, all these new tutorials have been absolutely amazing and really made playmaker such an easier experience to get into and enjoy, and most importantly understand. I appreciate them all greatly!
They are all presented really well and I just can't get enough of them !
Not saying the previous ones weren't, just that's it's great to expand the horizon with these additional tutorials (I mean seriously, over 3 hours of tutorials just for camera controls...awesome!), and I'm sure it should attract many more people who might have been a bit worried like myself that they would get playmaker and then not really understand where to go from there.
The more tutorials the merrier
Not sure if this was asked in all of the 700+ post. But do you guys plan on having a free version like Uscript and antares universe does?
Playmaker has been fantastic so far! Without the video tutorials things may seem a bit overwhelming to non-programmer types, so this is a HUGE step in bringing Playmaker to all disciplines. Keep em coming!
I'm not sure when we'll have a free trial version... I'll post here as soon as I have news on that front...
Forgot to post here that the 1.3.3 update is now in the asset store!
Release notes: https://hutonggames.fogbugz.com/default.asp?W311

Also very excited about some new drag and drop features coming in 1.4 - will post some sneak peak videos...
