    Hi, both save and load operations are synchronous by nature. So we didn't provide an option to show progress. We are considering options for supporting async operations and at that point, we will add progress feature.

    Hi, is it possible to share sample project having this issue. Our team can look into it and find out the reasons causing this unusual behaviour.

    Thanks for your reply, how long does it take to support asynchronous loading?

    Honestly, as of now we don't have a timeline for it. We are investigating on this subject, the challenging part is ensuring data consistency during async operation. We are considering partial async operation as well i.e, converting object to raw format in synchronous manner and serialising it async manner. We will keep you posted regarding the progress.

    Can you clarify if it is possible to serialize animation files (.anim) with this asset?

    Has CPES been tested with Unity 2019.3? Because since updating my project, nothing works anymore. Serialization seems completely broken.

    UPDATE: SO it works fine in 2019.3, but I believe it has something to do with Addressables. When I rolled back from a version that I was messing with Unity Addressables, it worked when they were removed. Seeing as how Addressables are the ultimate answer to loading/unloading data from RAM, this may be a major hiccup going forward if it truly is an issue with CPES playing nice with it.

    Then again, as these forums have shown, I am a dumb dumb with a lot of things and it could just be something I'm screwing up.

    hi, i'm planning to buy Cross Platform Easy Save, i think it does everything i need but just to be sure, can you confirm?

    i'm writing a game builder game: at run time players can edit the scene, including terrain, meshes, and obviously game objects and their components, pretty much everything.

    i've looked at your videos and only see serializing simple types like ints, strings, etc. do you have an example of serializing a whole game object., including its children? how about a terrain?

    thanks

    Hi. It seems that your plugin will write out as binary? I can't find it explicitly stated, but you compare your speeds against BinaryFormatter so I'm assuming. Can you confirm? And it look like you support Unity types like Vector3 & Quaternion? Thanks!

    hello i am looking to a solution for webgl / webVR serialization , does this solves this ? if so is there a tutorial or example ? i am looking to have a filebrowser open i.e "standalone file browser" available in git or similiar that opens a path to save ,then use MessagePackSerializer also available in git instead of Jason { not sure but as it says filesize is low and is faster ? } i could make everything work for normal build no issue only webGl/Webvr seems to be very tricky ! tried making HandleIO.jslib => https://amalgamatelabs.com/Blog/4/data_persistence also but it just wouldn't do it.. if this does this process its way better for me to just buy this than investing further time and effort..

    Exactly. It's a shame because it generally does what I'm looking for. I bought it just to try it and have had to work through some issues (there's just mediocre documentation), but have hit something that I need the dev for and they're not responding here. I did get one curt reply from them a week ago on their skype chat, but all they did was send a bad link.

    Just as an FYI for people looking into this plugin.

    Loaded it into a blank Unity 2019.3.0f6 project and ran the "SceneSerialisation" demo scene, recieved the following errors:

    Upon loading the plugin:
    "Assets/Plugins/VoxelBusters/CrossPlatformEasySave/Scripts/Stream/BinaryStreamReader.cs(180,23): error CS0227: Unsafe code may only appear if compiling with /unsafe. Enable "Allow 'unsafe' code" in Player Settings to fix this error."
    - Turned on "unsafe code" in player settings to remove those errors.

    Running the scene:
    "Do not use ReadObjectThreaded on scene objects!"

    The demo scene does run and serialising and deserialising the scene objects works as it's supposed to!!

    However, when I use the plugin in my project and play in the Editor, I get multiple instances of:

    "InvalidOperationException: This cannot be used during play mode.
    UnityEditor.SceneManagement.EditorSceneManager.MarkSceneDirty (UnityEngine.SceneManagement.Scene scene)"


    Which is stemming from using the "SerializationUtility.Instantiate" function used to instantiate a GameObject I want to save later on.

    Running it after Building seems to alleviate that error, however, I'm getting a bunch of errors trying to create Data Providors for all the various scripts attached to the various GameObjects I'm trying to save the state of.....

    So while I think you could make this plugin work out of the box, at least for super simple projects, but for anything more complicated, you will most likely need a high degree of customization.

    I think I am going to need to find another solution to save and load my scene's objects....

    Hope this helps anyone looking in here!!!
