    Previously I've been using uLink from muchdifferent, but because of the lack of updates, I migrated to UNET.

    One awesome editor extension they made is uEcho, which makes it possible to have multiple unity editors running the same project. This makes it possible to have one editor run as server, and two others as clients.

    I have been using this since a couple of years back, and i see alot of people suggesting making a new build everytime you need to test something...

    It has been in beta since 2013 and has never been officially supported, but I have never had any problems with it

    Download:
    http://download.muchdifferent.com/versionfinder/list_all_versions.php?product=uecho

    Getting started:

    1. Dowload the assetpackage from the page provided above.
    2. Install package
    3. Click on uEcho -> Edit Clones.
      This will bring up the editor window, pin it where you want it
    4. Click the plus-button to add a new clone
    5. Right click on the newly added clone inside the uEcho window
      Open in new Editor
    6. Profit

    Thanks! Will look into it, although I got to ask, since I can't find no Readme or Documentation, this does not require Photon, right?

    No, you don't need anything else out of that project. It just happens to have the asset in the project, as there are not many places to find it.

    Alright, thanks MostHated, will check it out :)

    Btw, JuanJSAR, I tremble opening these, they may contain viruses and have so many ads.... also 53 kb? If possible, upload it to mediafire/dropbox/googledrive or anything. I sadly cannot verify or use them, since those sites have so many red flags

    It is actually pretty small. I just zipped it to check. It is pretty much just a dll and a few text docs.

    Just a notification to anyone using this on Unity 2018.2 - The interface is completely busted on this version (bunch of nullReferenceExceptions), which led me to believe that uEcho no longer worked. It actually does -- you can still do Add New Clone, and this will still function as a clone of your original project. You'll just need to open it by opening the Unity exe, rather than through the uEcho interface.

    Another update: It still work in 2018.3 but have network send error whenever it sync project that freeze editor 1-2 seconds.
    Very annoying that make this uEcho unusable. So I suggest other people to try Symbolic link

    Or FreeFileSync if you really dont mind double space for same project.

    There's some news about this tool? or you guys know about a great similar tool to substitute uEcho?

    I'm working on a Multiplayer project right now and i recently updated my project to 2018.3 and i cant use this tool anymore but i need something to test my game quickly. (I will test Symbolic Link and FreeFileSync, but if some of you have another suggestion please tell me)

    i will be gratefull if some of you can help me.
