    It's easy to change dictionaries on the fly???? For example detect the phone language and change dictionaries accordingly??

    Yes the dictionary can easily be changed on the fly. However Playmaker doesn't by default give you an action to detect the system language. There appears to be a custom action available for this purpose, I may integrate it in an update if it works properly.

    @wetcircuit
    I am happy you like it! Thank you.

    I've just submitted an update with support for English, French, Spanish, Italian and German dictionaries. Support for special characters has also been implemented.

    Be sure to pick the kit up at it's current price as it will be going back up to regular price when the update is accepted!

    Is it possible to add your own dictionaries (like Dutch)?

    Yes it is possible, I went ahead an made a dutch dictionary for you. If you want it before the next update just let me know. As long as a language is composed of mainly ASCII characters it is supported.

    I created a compatible Portuguese Brazil (pt-BR) dictionary for someone today, if anyone needs it before the next update contact me and I'll be happy to share it with you. I also have a Dutch dictionary prepared as well if anyone needs it.

    Quick update guys. If you are using more than one scene in your word game, you are going to run into a serious game breaking issue. Upon loading a second puzzle scene, you'll notice the following error message in your console;

    "MissingReferenceException: The object of type 'Transform' has been destroyed but you are still trying to access it.
    Your script should either check if it is null or you should not destroy the object."

    You'll then notice that all of your HOTweens are broken. It appears that HOTweens stay in memory when changing scenes, and this can cause all sorts of problems.

    Luckily, there is an extremely simple fix for anyone who experiences this. Simply use a "Hotween Kill" action before each load level action.

    Is there a way to use this kit to make games that only use a very specific set of words that can be found? For example, I want to only include words for types of animals to be found such as "lion, tiger, elephant..."

    Yes, you can supply a specific dictionary containing only the words you want included on any given puzzle. You can also place the letter tiles manually instead of randomized.

    IMPORTANT information regarding all 3D Sauce templates!

    If anyone is running into FSM or build errors, there are a few simple steps to follow that will remedy these issues until I've had time to update the packages.

    Simply open all affected scenes and re-save them individually. This should fix any issues you are experiencing after updating to the latest version of any 3D Sauce template and Playmaker.

    Thanks for you patience. Please don't hesitate to report any additional issues that may arise.
