Gallery Screenshot

I put together a plugin for Unity iOS and Android the other day and decided other people might find it useful, so its now on the Asset Store.

From the documentation:

“This Plugin will take a screenshot of your app, and register the file so that it appears in your picture gallery (camera roll) on both iOS and Android. Tested and working with Unity 3.5.7 & 4.3 (including free version). Also works great with Vuforia.”

UIToolkit Camera Fix

prime31’s UIToolkit is still my choice for all things UI in Unity, primarily because its free, and also because I haven’t found a task yet that it can’t do straight out of the box or with some minor code tweaks.

Annoyingly after upgrading to Unity 4, it didn’t seem to work properly on mobile. It looked like the camera wasn’t setting the correct positions for the Touch Areas on initialisation, and graphics were all over the place. Luckily a helpful guy over on the Unity forums posted a fix.

in UI.cs, change _uiCamera to be a static variable, and create a new function called setSize:

And then call UI.setSize() once the scene has loaded.

Mobile Zombie

My first Android app is now published and available on the Android market! Its more of a piss take than anything else, just testing how easy it is to put something on there.

Its basically just a zombie running on a treadmill, who explodes where you touch him. Hilariously enough its had 800 downloads in its first day. Search for “Mobile Zombie” on the market if you’re interested, or download here.
