If you have not already -DOWNLOAD NOW
Awesome, thanks for the heads up.
Despite that we're often having different opinions, congratulations @Unity. :O)
Anyone else having problems getting it to start??
It keeps asking me for a activation key or something like that!( i am using the free version)
The released version is actually 3.0.0f5 (the last release candidate) it seems so if you already have that, no need to download anything.
Anyway, congratulations unity!
Let's see how it compares to 2.6.1
Although 3.0 is great. Still it lacks something:
We asked for it many times, to have more features in Unity, and no we're not talking about the special stuff, but the now in the industry COMMON stuff. (e.g. RT shadows, Render to texture, Glow, video). There is still many high end stuff left, for the PRO version. don't worry.
This 3.0 release could be the chance..
I didn't expect large changes anymore but i somehow thought that for the release version they would fix tiny stuff like quite some broken links from the editor to the docs (for instance several image effects), nevermind.
If anyone is having trouble activating Unity with a serial number, you can manually activate your own serial number using the form on this page: https://store.unity3d.com/shop/manual_activation.cgi (never mind the extremely outdated page style ;-) )
I will try that and then update you
Okay? That's weird, I cannot install it :-|
Anyone else having the same problem?
No, it did not work. I dont have a serial number but i am always asked for one.
And my license request is always refused.
Updated und runs fine here
Absolutely no reaction for me, there's a message saying "No Text could be found for index 16" or something...
I just cant get past this:
I dont get a license, and it wont let me finish
same problem here
I activated the 30-days Pro trial version and it is now working fine.
I hope there will be no hassle in going back to Unity3 free after trial expires.
On a more personal note, I'm just thinking to add iOS for $300 (last day of bonanza thanks to UT guys) and have Unity3 free + iOS basic.
same problem here.. (version 3.0.0f5, just downloaded)
after minutes of waiting, i finally get sent to a webpage, then i click free , after some minutes waiting again, i get a message on the webpage telling me
"The serial number you entered is not valid. Please recheck the serial number and try again. To get a trial, contact firstname.lastname@example.org."
And inside the installer i get a popup with something like:
"An Error occurred with the internet activation server. The operation timed out (error number 12002)
Press OK to manually activate your softwate.
ID: ePAY: <number> / WPSW : <number>"
then after clicking ok, i see a new dialog, but whatever i do, click etc.. it won't activate.
exactly my problem. Anyone gonna help us sort this out???
So, I've got a question: Does the new unity support OS X 10.4 ? Or is it Leopard-only, this could explain a lot for me...
@ mikesgames: Yeah, same thing for me...
The factor time.
The activation server is not god, if it gets too many request, part of them will be bounced likely to prevent it from crashing.
They could, no wait... should have scaled it up, for the launch. One can expect a high traffic load, with a long awaited new release
It could be a little better though; ive been bounced several times now
Oddly, I got the same error message ("The operation timed out"). But when I went back to Unity 3, it continued on just fine. I've shut down and reopened it a couple times, and it seems to be fine. It's not nagging me for a license anyway.
The product activation system has denied activating the product. Please contact Unity support for further assistance.
is there unity 3 free? :-0
Yes, Dogzerx, there is.. (if you'd looked/read you would know)
there should be.we just can't get it
I choose Internet activation but it times out :-0~
well dogzerx, i've been so far, that i could choose my type of license.
(which is either a free one, or a pro license)
so, there is a free license available. Also, if you look at the license comparison page (in the store)
you notice there is a "unity" license, and a Pro license.
What i don't get, is why on earth does the free one needs, activation at all?
(it free!, no need to activate anything.. activation for the PRO and 30 day evaluation is logical though)
thats most of our problems - it don't even let us activate the free version
I downloaded, installed, and activated via manual activation (my dev PC is not allowed on network) with no problems. Thanks Unity
Disappointed that the iOS version won't be getting occlusion culling. Love the new editor tools though.
howdya do it? I cant do it, my computer wont do it
The iOS version has it, but occlusion is a pro only thing so you need iOS Pro for it
huh? not connected to the net (thus activation server) but able to activate?
Tell me how you accomplished that?
Also what license did you activate?
I'm trying to activate manualy from https://store.unity3d.com/manual/ and browsing for the license file I generate from unity's manual activation method. But it gives me error as well
c'mon work work work
no help???? it would be nice.
Smantha gave us alink earlier, but that didn't help
tried again - fail.
unity team help us please!
Nice, let´s see how the debugging works with this release
@Dogzerx - where the hell do them images come from??
And I agree,yes. HELP!!!!!
Why do not you all activate the 30days trail of Pro? It's free and then go back to Unity free.
I'm downloading it now. It took two tries just to get the download started for me. Hopefully my activation process goes more smooth.
Lets hope it does Caliber Mengsk.
they are tuzki bunny emoticons, they're all over the internet
Anyone had any luck???
it's working, register quick!!
I am on it...
it's really slow... almost as if a whole lot of people were trying to register at the same time.......
doesn't make any sense AT ALL :0
