    It may be worth looking at the DOTweenPro.dll assembly in a tool like ILSpy. This error means that the DoComplete method in the DG.Tweening.DOTweenPath type uses a method named Complete in the DG.Tweening.TweenExtensions type. Maybe this TweenExtensions type is in a different assembly that you don't have in your project?

    You may also want to ask the DOTween maintainers about this error. Have other users seen it?

    Bump. I am also getting a similar error but for DOTween.Restart

    Never heard about this problem before (Nooh never contacted me, so maybe he solved it?). Can you post your full error log @supremegrandruler? Did you check already that you're not missing any files?

    @Izitmee , sure here's the first error:

    This is the second error:

    This happens only when I build for iOS. Android and Stand Alone are OK.

    EDIT: Note that it says Unity 5.1.4 but this is a typo; I'm actually on Unity 5.4.1

    I think I found the problem. It seems that Unity's iOS builder has troubles accepting a method with optional parameters. This definitely looks like a Unity bug, hope someone can look into it. In the meantime, I'm gonna send you via email a modified version that should fix this, in a short while.

    Actually, no, wait. I realized that fixing this on my side would be way more complex than I thought, and lead to verbose code that will should be unnecessary since I'm pretty sure Unity fixed this already. Could you try upgrading your project to Unity 5.6 (or the latest release version possible, at least 5.4.5) and try again?

    Is there no way for you to fix it? If it's only a method that has optional parameters can't you do something like this?

    So this:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. void DoStuff(int x = 0, float y = 9, string g = "hi");
    Could become this:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. void DoStuff(int x, float y, string g){
    2.    //Actually do stuff
    3. }
    5. void DoStuff(int x, float y){
    6.     DoStuff(x, y, "hi);
    7. }
    9. void DoStuff(int x){
    10.    DoStuff(x, 9);
    11. }
    13. void DoStuff(){
    14.    DoStuff(0);
    15. }
    I'd really hate to have to upgrade Unity right now as I'm very very close to finishing a project. :(
