      I have a native iOS game (objective c, XCode build) which I am considering to port to other platforms.
      Core gameplay is based on solely on geographical maps, and custom drawing over maps. It also has Core Data. This part is complete in development.
      What is not done yet is: monetization, gamification (leaderboards, challenges) and multiplayer functionality.
      As I think more about it, I am tempted to think if this is the right time to move to a cross platform tool such as Unity. But before dedicating time to port my 5 years side-project effort in Objective C, I really want to know if its worth it.
      - Does Unity support such plugins / assets that will fulfill all my above requirements?
      - Unity Personal seems to have only 20 concurrent users - is it too costly scaling if I decide for extending to web and android platforms?
      - What is the general workflow involved in publishing to iOS, Android, PC, and web platforms while using Unity? I mean to ask about various points of signing stuff, paying fees and getting certified.
      - How long will it really take to port my entire Objective C project into Unity? I am somewhat familiar with C# but I am finding it hard fidgeting with Unity IDE as lot of things are focused around FPS and 3D while my game is still 2d - not much action involved. I seem bit overwhelmed by the list of features I see there. All in all, I do not want to lose my momentum while still making sure its portable to everywhere.
      - Any assets I could use (for free to try basis in debug) that are relevant for my game?
      - Last but not the least, are there any costs that I need to be paying upfront to Unity, for using it (apart from their monthly subscription model)? I don't understand their costing for multiplayer in conjunction with their subscription fees - if someone could kindly elaborate.
      Thanks in advance for your time reading a newbie

      me and few friends are developing simple city building game with unity for a school project, think something like Banished but much simpler. I was tasked to create the path-finding for the game so I mostly followed this tutorial series up to episode 5. Then we created simple working system for cutting trees. The problem is that the path-finding is working like 90% of the time, then it get stuck randomly then there's clearly a way to the objective (tree). I tried looking for some pattern when it happens but can't find anything. So basically I need any tips for how I should approach this problem.
      Use this image to visualize the problem.

Hi, Firstly, my apologies if this is in the wrong section. I am developing a cooperative local-multiplayer game which will obstensibly be pitched to a publisher for Xbox 360 development. For now, the development will be on PC using Unity3D with the Xbox 360 controllers. I have the controllers working perfectly for game input, they were plug and play with Windows 7. What I would like to do is have each of the local players have an Xbox live headsets plugged in to their controller, and receive sound from the PC. Crucial to our game design is that each player must be able to receive a seperate audio stream (our game is cooperative, but involves elements of secrecy and competition). Can this be done? Any and all help is appreciated. Please bear in mind I am a student programmer and a lot of console hardware/driver stuff goes way over my head. cheers, Draknir

Can it be done? Yes. Each headset is considered a separate audio controller, so they can be enumerated and controlled individually.

Can you do it? That is up to your own knowledge and skill. If you have the necessary skills to use a single headset, hooking up to additional headsets will be easy.

I *think* I've figured out how it can be done.

The DirectX SDK has an XInput AudioController sample (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee417012(VS.85).aspx) which worked perfectly with my single controller/headset. I still need to test it with multiple headsets, but I think it'll work.

I need to find a way to get the DX9 sample working in C#/.NET, no idea how I'm going to get that done, but I'm sure I'll find some people who can help me on the way.
