I don't take requests, paid or not. You can of course express your interest in a new feature, but in the end I'm the one who
decides what I do with the Engine. My goal is to create a strong yet generic basis for a platformer game. If your request is
very specific (like a grappling hook or a portal gun - although I reckon that'd be pretty fun), it probably won't make it.
I downloaded the asset and it's not working / I don't have all the files
First, start by making sure you're running the latest current version of Unity. Then try downloading the asset again.
The asset is not working with my gamepad!
Controls have been set up for keyboard and xbox pc gamepad. Obviously including support for every gamepad/configuration would be impossible,
so I just went with the most common conf. Luckily for you, this has nothing to do with the Highroad Engine, and is really a general Unity matter.
You should be able to find the right conf by googling it or on the Unity forums. Key binding is set up in the engine like in any other Unity project,
via Edit > Project Settings > Input.
The asset is crashing on my device!
My guess is it's a performance issue.
- does it work in the editor ?
If it works in the editor, your device may not be powerful enough to run it.
- does the MinimalLevel scene alone work on your phone/tablet/device ?
If it works, your device may not be powerful enough to run larger levels.
This is a general Unity performance problem,
nothing really specific to the engine I'm afraid.
If you absolutely want to run it on that device, aim for smaller assets,
less enemies, stuff like that.
Mesa1 level for example does include some very large assets
(4096x4096 backgrounds for example), clearly not fit for slow devices.
Where can I change the input settings ? I don't like the current key layout!
Like in any good Unity project, the settings are defined in the Input Manager.
You can access it via Edit > Project Settings > Input.
What programming language is the asset written in ?
Am I allowed to use the code in more than one project ? Can I modify the source code or the visual assets ?
Once you've bought the asset you can do anything you want with the source code, you're just not allowed to redistribute it (offer it for free, sell it anywhere, etc).
You can of course use that code to create commercial games and sell these, just don't redistribute the contents of the asset. And yes you can modify it, use it in more than one project. It's yours now!
Can I just compile the asset and upload it without changing anything to Google Play, Steam Greenlight or the Apple Store ?
Well no you can't. Although this sounds like a genius masterplan, I'm afraid it's not legal. Be imaginative, create your own game. Of course you can use the asset as a basis, that's what it's for.
I really love the asset, is there any way I can help ?
