    In the scripting reference. It's effective just to type stuff like that in Google, in addition to the search box in the docs.

    I'm sorry, didn't see that coming :rolleyes: I guess I should dig deeper in the depths of the documentation.

    Sorry for asking, but i have just started a project on Unity 3d, and have made a website for it! Well, on there, there is the very basic starting points of 'how I started unity javascript! Also, it would be great if you could view it, because i hope it helps people, and i think that as my game progresses, it will get better and better, and from hat i am hoping, it is unique!

    website: http://explorerunknown.weebly.com/

    PS. as you can see, i am pretty desperate!

    I have not fully gone through it but yea I think I agree, seems very easy to follow so far. I am just starting to code in unity and I think this will be a good start for me. Thank you to the author! Even thou this thread is about 4 years old now, seems to still be very useful with comments still coming. Ill be sure to provide another review soon as I'm done going through it.

    This is actually insanely useful, currently just learning how to program and with this I learned the basic steps, which was very very hard for me from looking at pre made scripts or tutorials and having no idea on what they do :) I think ill stick to Java actually, thanks to your great tutorial! Keep it up and thank you again very much! :D

    I was wondering something, the thread title states this is a newbie guide for javascript (a very good one by the way) but all the code examples state they are written in Csharp, why is this?

    I think it's because when Unity updated the forums, C# was the default language for when no language was specified. It used to be that you just couldn't specify a language, as I recall, so it's just using those old tags.

    Yep. I edited the post and changed "code" to "code=javascript". While I was at it I updated some of the text, to fix some broken links, and to get rid of references to dynamic typing (since strict typing became the default long ago) and the Array class (since it's evil).

    Alright thank you for pointing that out. This thread really helped me understand the basics of programming (along with the official unity scripting tutorials)

    Thank you so much for these lessons. I am a noob at Java Scripting and if any one else knows about somewhere else I could learn Java Script, please tell me.

    Still, this lesson was really good and helped me a lot. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    Try the getting started section. Or check out the excellent videos in the learn section.

    This thread is several years old.
