ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR PROJECT BEFORE IMPORTING OR UPDATING ASSETS!
MAKE SURE YOUR PROJECT HAS NO ERRORS IN THE UNITY CONSOLE BEFORE UPDATING!
If there are errors in the project the imported scripts will not compile until the errors are fixed.
We highly recommend using Source Control with Unity Projects. Taking a little time to setup this up first can save you countless hours in the long run!
- Playmaker works with Unity 5.3 and higher.
- System requirements are the same as for Unity.
When you update Unity you may need to also update PlayMaker:
There are versions of PlayMaker uploaded for Unity 5.3, 5.4, 2017.1 and 2018.3. So if you update from 2017.1 to 2017.4 you don't need to update PlayMaker, since they use the same version of PlayMaker. But if you update from 2017.1 to 2018.3 you will need to update PlayMaker since it requires a new version of PlayMaker.
Installing from the Unity Asset Store
Open the Asset Store inside Unity: Main Menu > Window > Asset Store
- Click Version to check the Release Notes.
- Buy/Import/Update Playmaker.
- Import later from your Downloads.
NOTE: There is an Asset Store Bug where it can import the wrong version of PlayMaker if you switch Unity versions. To avoid this bug, please Download/Update PlayMaker again when switching Unity versions. More info here.
Installing from our Online Store
- You should receive a download link for a zip file containing Playmaker unitypackages.
- Unzip the file and find the appropriate Playmaker unitypackage for the Unity version you're using.
- In Unity select Assets > Import Package > Custom Package and select the Playmaker unitypackage.
- Use the Unity5.4 package for Unity 5.4, 5.6, and 5.7.

From the Welcome Screen you can:
- Install the latest version of Playmaker
- Review Upgrade Notes
- Find tutorials and download samples
- Open the Add-ons Manager

General Update Notes
- Always backup projects before importing an update!
- It's a good idea to close the Playmaker Editor before updating.
