Giving this 3 stars for the moment as after upgrading to the new version I keep experiencing Crashes in Unity. If I downgrade and install the 1.8.2 it is fine. If this can get resolved I will change to 5 stars as all the new features are fantastic. I really like being able to start debugging right from VS and having it start the project in the Unity Editor (as long as it doesn't hang).
The hang seems to happen after you have started the project once and then you are trying to start it a second time.
I've owned the tools for a well over a year now, worth every penny! Now that they're free, there's nothing stopping a wider audience from enjoying the same. Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see what the next releases will bring...
I'm using the VSTU with the new Unity 4.6 beta. There are now a new DLL to be deployed to UnityAssemblies folder: UnityEngine.UI.Dll. Without it, there will be a reference error in the generated VS project.
I was able to fix this manually (getting the missing dll from [Unity install folder]\Editor\Data\UnityExtensions\Unity\GUISystem\4.6.0\Standalone) and copying it to ([Unity project folder]\Library\UnityAssemblies) but it will be awesome if you could release an updated version of this extension.
I've updated to 1.9 and it seems pretty unstable compared to 1.8.2. I've seen some of the reviews commenting the same thing and one of the responses is to report bugs at the Connect website, but that website doesn't seem to work for me (at least on Chrome)
The three main broken pieces I've found so far:
1) attaching to already playing instance will lockup Unity
2) setting a breakpoint while player is running will block in VS
3) watch is broken
There are also several bugs that I've previously reported from earlier versions that are still not fixed. Some of these I thought would be fixed in 1.9, but they are not, and not sure what the ETA is. Also, there was an interchange of ideas resulting in good solutions for these, but I don't know if that's been lost in the acquisition.
4) console logging does not work
5) [DebuggerDisplay] does not work
6) Project Inclusions/Exclusions are not user friendly
What can we do to get the stability issues addressed, and to resolve some of the older defects and suggestions?
Connect is the preferred way, but you can also send this as an email to vstusp AT microsoft.com
We already fixed some issues in the upcoming 1.9.1. But i want to check more about "3-watch is broken".
