    From the error, it looks like maybe you're using a version of PlayMaker built for an older version of Unity. Specifically, GUIText and GUITexture are obsolete in newer versions of Unity and were removed from newer versions of PlayMaker.

    Try updating Playmaker (backup your project first).

    If that doesn't work, please start a thread on the PlayMaker Forums so we can dig a little deeper. Post the version of PlayMaker you're using and the full error again.

    Hi Everyone,

    We are just getting ready for Playmaker Game Jam 2020~

    We are shooting for a date in mid-October. That should give us around a month to plan. Rules will likely follow something quite similar to last year.

    In a change this year, we are looking for a few volunteers to help run things more smoothly. Qualifications? There are not many. Its more organizational work, feedback, and communications (forum posting, twitter, etc).

    Like the years before, we are using the Playmaker (Unofficial) Slack chat channel to organize. You can join here: https://invite-playmaker-slack.herokuapp.com/

    Feel free to join tag me (tcmeric) or join the volunteer channel with the slack group.

    Also as the years before, we will be giving away a few small prizes, but the focus is always on community, education, and fun.

    Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

    Check out this behind the scenes look at Unruly Heroes, a gorgeous game using Playmaker for rapid prototyping:

    https://unity.com/madewith/unruly-heroes
    "Each of the teams is familiar with Playmaker to aid prototyping, and can build new gameplay scenarios quickly. In fact, they were able to create a PVP mode (a feature they’re proud to include for local and online play) for the game without needing to solicit their programming team."

    Hi, I've just bought your asset, I know my way around Unity a bit, but can't seem to find up to date tutorials that give me comprehensive information on how to use it. Could you help me out? Or point me to some tutorials? Thank you.

    Hi, I would start with this Core Concepts page in the manual:
    https://hutonggames.fogbugz.com/f/page?W133

    There is a good overview of the User Interface:
    https://hutonggames.fogbugz.com/f/page?W155

    Then you can then drill down on various topics (states, actions, events, etc.)

    The official videos, while older are still generally applicable and we try to note where things have changed in newer versions of Unity in the description and linked forum threads.

    Basic Tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL727CB9763F77BDE0
    Game Design with Playmaker and Unity: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLC759306A1E692A10

    There are also some great PlayMaker tutorials on these channels:
    DumbGameDev: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyRBYRGl9v_byeKxT4GLG_A
    One Month Studios: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZey2oB43bGKtPRYkmeliCg
    Romi Fauzi: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbjQvNpDaHBrlBhpk65OQgA

    DumbGameDev has a nice PlayMaker Essentials video:


    Finally, we have a new set of videos almost ready to release, and if you're interested in previewing these in exchange for some feedback, please PM me :)

    Check out the new PlayMakerControls component in 1.9.1. It collects all exposed controls on a GameObject in a single Inspector. Great for organization and tweaking!
