Wow, I love how useful tessellation is... now will this work on Skinned Meshes?
how do i use Mecanim
On your model, click Configure Avatar
wheres configure avatar
In your hierachy, select the top level of your character model, and hit configure avatar after giving the model an animator component. I tested this on a model that I had and it allowed this functionality
OK, you win.
think i'll wait.. I am not big on beta testing... But good to see beta here already because the final should follow shortly after that.
Ironically, renaming the data file of a build will break it.
This is great news Will this include IOS and Android(Providing I purchased it?)
EDIT: I love the way on Android it is possible to make infinitely complex projects with the beta...
It's in RC now which means it's very close and we are ironing out the final issues. It's a good time to check for any things that may have broken your project and report them.
Does it come with new default shaders?
Great. Was just worried mainly about registry entries etc.
(Which are the usual culprits.)
Is there a 'make coffee' button planned for release?
Or is this only coming in 4.x
This is the worst version of Unity. It doesn't even come with a MakeWOWKilla or MakeAppStoreMillions plugin. What the hell is the point?
I know right? I clicked the build button but it just gave me some HTML document, where is my CODkiller?!?!?! NOT HAPPY UNITY!
How did you get the normal maps to work on terrain? Using a normalmap in the second texture slot seems to make no difference as I tried it
I tried to run the Mecanim Demo but some scenes don't work. The character fell through the ground in two scenes. I can't control the character in some scenes. The white text is hard for me to read.
Ok, got it to work. The important thing is to create a custom material: shader->nature->terrain->bumped and add this shader to the terrain settings->basic terrain->material. Looks awesome!
Seems like Unity broke all animations , i had to re-import every single animation. Other than that i'm not having any more problems. Loving the new preview window when previewing animations (It's the only place in Unity free that has real time shadows!! xD )
You will have to assign a material to the terrain with the shader : Nature/Terrain/Bumper Specular . Note that normal maps don't work with every lightmap type.
Hm, for me it throws a Null Reference Error for every "if (controller.isGrounded)" line now. Same code worked and works perfectly in 3.5. Any ideas?
Thats not good because i use that line of code often aswell
What are your platforms of interest (select all which apply)?
I had to choose "Other" as linux is NOT listed Fuuuuuuuuuu
That does look great.
That line of code never worked for me anyway.
No, seriously. I am trapped by this. I need to check for is grounded. And it works in 3.5 and earlier without problems. So to repeat my quesiton, is there a solution? Is this a known issue, caused by some changings somewhere? What is the workaround?
I can't even load Unity 4.0 beta! I installed Unity 4.0 with the downloaded one from the Unity Download page, I got the error "Unity License information is Invalid" I followed the link to the error page http://unity3d.com/unity/err/license but it brought me to a 404 page. I have already Reinstalled unity twice now, even deleted the Unity file in the Roaming folder. Any help?
It says this in the release notes: Manual Activation from inside the License Manager window, will generate invalid license request file (it will work for missing internet connnections).
So, don't do manual activation if that's what you did, if not then there seems to be some other problem.
Hey everyone. Just thought I would share some screen shots of a tessellation demo I am working on. This is all done on Unity 4 Free. Theres tessellation on the sand and the rock.
Just wanted to show everyone how useful this new feature is. This scene runs at 250 FPS on my machine.
Thats the thing... It never asked me for my License or anything! Are there more Unity files other than in the main Program Files one and the Appdata/Roaming one?
wow if you can do that imagine what i can do with this in a cartoon art style
It prompted a window where I could enter a serial for an existing license, or just log in and use a new free license. I chose the free license option and it worked. Also I didn't delete anything previously, just renamed the old unity folder under Program Files (Windows user) to Unity3.5.
You guys are amazing. Thank you for changing the way we make games.
my Pomeranian made a gym apps this morning, got declined because of pornographic images..
I managed to fix the bug by re-downloading the installer, it still gave me the error, but this time when I clicked continue/ok it prompted me with the license validation screen, it works perfectly! Can't wait to use Unity4!
That is looking cool, Brilliant... even in free it looks cool... I tried tessellation on a character model and it looked smooth, but with wireframes, it looks so wrong... I was under the impression of tessellation performing like a SubD level in Zbrush... so for animated models, I am going to pass on tessellation and model the character smoothly outright.
Awesome! Downloading right now.
Thanks for reporting this, it should be fixed now.
I added Linux to the Win/Macoption, aka desktop, thanks!
Fuuuuuu, this just wasted most of weekend(I have a 4 day weekend) I installed win8 on my pc sunday morning and since then unity has not been working... and I can't code tomorrow because I have to study for my exams To normal people this is no problemo as they will just code another time but I'm like a werewolf coder, only during a full moon can I be bothered doing it /RANT
Can you be a little more specific?
im confused guys .help me unity 4.0 free version released?.or that linik only for pre purchased users?
this link: http://unity3d.com/unity/beta/download
The second sentence on the page says: "This is the latest beta release for Unity 4, available to both Pro pre-order and Free customers."
can i able to use both 3.5 and 4 at same time?.im having windows xp
Yes, if you rename the folders as discussed throughout this thread.
