    I am working on a presentation i am going to give related to "Build automation with Unity".
    For this presentation i would like to demonstrate building a Unity game from the command line.

    The problem is that i cannot seem to get it working. I am using 2019.2 beta 7 (haven't tried older versions yet).

    This is the command line and arguments i am using:
    The output log doesn't mention anything interesting that i could find.
    Does anyone know if this is a known bug? or am i doing something wrong here ?

    Log file is also attached. Any help would be appreciated :)

    EDIT adding a build script (editor script that calls BuildPipeline.BuildPlayer) and calling that from the command line works, but the default built-in options like -buildOSX64Player are not working).

    The command line to build Mac player is "-buildOSXUniversalPlayer". Looks like documentation is incorrect. Can you submit a bug report?

    I used the available commands from the docs I believe I also tried the option you wrote. I will try again and see if it works.

    Thanks, we'll fix the documentation.

    The other ones didn't work because the code doesn't check for them :).
