Interactive Tutorials don't work

    First interactive tutorial didnt work so I reinstalled Unity and it worked.

    That was yesterday.



    Today I launch Unity and again can't load interactive tutorial.


    What happens is, I download it in Hub, I start it, unity takes a while to load
    Then Unity Loads, with tutorial files, but nothing is happening?

    No next/back button, no tutorial basically.


    Or is there a way to turn it on?

    What tutorials can't you start? The "Getting Started" ones? You said that you managed to load one yesterday, did you save it somewhere on your computer? If yes, that's the one you must launch if you want to do it again.

    Me too; I just started the first "Getting Started" tutorial; works fine for me.

    It's normal that you have nothing for the Roll a Ball tutorial; there is no assets to download for this project. You must create everything using the video tutorials you'll find on the Tutorial page here: https://unity3d.com/learn/tutorials

    It created the project directly for you; you just have to save it wherever you want once you've started it that way.

    The advantage of starting the Roll a Ball that way is that you do not have to download the "done" project, that contains everything already made. The Roll a Ball project you can find on the Assets Store contains the completed project and that can be confusing for new learners. :)

    If you carry on learning the tutorials here and you want to download the projects from the Assets Store, I recommend that you deselect the "Complete" or "Done" assets before installing the project. :)

    I opened it with the one you are using and it does work.

    You can try the following if you have problems: delete the "Unity Essentials" folder you'll find in "C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Unity\Asset Store-5.x\Unity Technologies".

    If doing this fixes the problem, file a bug report from the Hub/My Account/Report a bug.

    It's not like playing games. You don't push an on button and everything works. You got to read the manuals. You have to pay close attention to the words. You have to search for answers. This is what makes it work.

    OK I'll bite.
    1. Download Unity hub
    2. Install 2017.4.24f1
    3. Read the manual. Select 'Play & Edit mode' tutorial. Click "Download". Click "Start".
    4. Unity starts and spews a pile of errors. No 'Tutorial panel' in sight.
    5. Turns out 'using Unity.InteractiveTutorials;' fails. Where's Unity.InteractiveTutorials module?
    Conclusion:
    Interactive Tutorials don't work

    As of today (April 4, 2019) Unity tutorials work only with Unity Editor 2018.3.

    Please don't try them with Unity 2017.3 or 2017.4 LTS. They don't work.

    Documentation on the landing page is wrong.

    Just because it worked for you doesn't mean it's working for anyone else on that release. This thread exists specifically because someone tried them with Unity 2018.3 and they didn't work. So unless there is a direct post from the developers that they were fixed, I'm going to write it off as you just got lucky.

    Either way these Interactive Tutorials need to just disappear. They're entirely too much trouble for beginners to deal with.

    The point is the Interactive Tutorials did not work for me with Unity 2017.3, and the fix is to use Unity 2018.3.

    Turns out current version of the tutorials relies on com.unity.learn.iet-framework@0.1.15-preview that requires Unity 2018.2 or later.

    Proof: excerpt from .config/unity3d/cache/packages/staging-packages.unity.com/com.unity.learn.iet-framework@0.1.15-preview/Documentation~/com.unity.iet-framework.md

    # Technical details
    ## Requirements

    This version of Framework for In-Editor Tutorials is compatible with the following versions of the Unity Editor:

    * 2018.2 and later (recommended)

    +EDIT: package.json declares only 2018.3:
    {
    "name": "com.unity.learn.iet-framework",
    "displayName": "Interactive Tutorial Core",
    "version": "0.1.15-preview",
    "unity": "2018.3",

    You were correct after all. I only tried out the first entry in the series, but it's clearly working on Unity 2018.3. I didn't see them mention anywhere that they had updated the tutorials, but that has to be what they did.

    Hi,.
    I just installed Unity off the home page yesterday and the installer gave me 2018.2. The learn tutorials don't work for me either.
    I don't want to install 2018.3 right now as I am on mobile for internet and it's a GB. Does anyone know where I can get a 2018.2 version of the tutes?

    I'm suspicious of how easy it is to live with now, if you can't even kick the tyres easily.

    There are hundreds of official tutorials. There is at least one major release every few months and one minor release every couple of weeks. It's just not feasible to check every tutorial every time you make a release. This isn't just a problem with Unity either. Every game engine on the market has the same problem.

    Just think of it as training - how to ask for assistance, how to search for solutions, etc - because when you start making games from scratch all of these problems will be massively multiplied. Game development isn't an easy field to get into.

    I thought I was asking for assistance.

    Does anyone know where I can get a 2018.2 version of the tutes?

    I was mostly referring to the problems you were having with the other tutorials, but I've looked a little deeper to see if there were release notes for these tutorials and discovered that they're stored on the Asset Store.

    According to the change logs on the store pages for the asset there has only ever been two releases - the original release (Sep 6, 2017) and fixes for Unity 2018.3 and 2019.1 (Mar 13, 2019).

    Had Unity 2018 and updated to 2019 then the tutorials stopped working. downloaded 2018 again and the Basic Tutorials worked again but none of the others are working. Should they be working in the 2019 version?

    On the other tutorials Like Ruby's Adventure: 2D Beginner I am getting the default page with the assets. Maybe a link to the tutorial would be nice

    I was also getting something similar to this error

    I am a beginner to unity and started learning Getting Started with Unity tutorial and I am not able to open the karting microgame because in the asset store it says I need 2018.4 but I have 2018.3. So is there any way I could use the karting microgame tutorial in 2018.3 version.

    Exactly!!!!!!! Imagine how much money this company is loosing to people who cant get help in the beginning. im paying $250 a month for 2 pro licenses and no one wants to help. You have to spend 8 hours a day just to learn one easy thing. all the tutorials are outdated! They're useless.

    Well they do if you are using the correct version of Unity. Lots of whiners and few readers.

    Hi,

    just stumbled into this. I didn't check them all, but for example for the karting game in Unity 2019.3, create an empty project, search for micro kart in the asset store and download it, then go to the package manager and remove the packager manager ui. That fixed it for me. Tutorials are great, but a shame the instructions weren't updated (since the package itself was).

    cheers

    Yo, what do you mean by "remove the packager manager ui"? Sounds like I'm supposed to remove the thing you just had me open and that seems kinda redundant so I have to be misunderstanding something.

    Sounds like what I need, but, I see no way to create an empty project - it always has a template. ideas on that ? [update] I tried to install fps microgame from store but install failed because it conflicted with current non-empty scene.
