    I just started to create my first network game. I viewed some videos on YouTube and started coding. When I added networkView.RPC() to my script and compiled, I got a dialog box that something was using old ways and that my script needed to be updated for Unity 5. It updated and changed my script. IOW what I used was "old" and I needed to do it the "new" way.
    My question is where do I learn about this stuff? Is there documentation about what is different in Unity 5? For example, is there some documentation on the "new" way to do networking and RPC?

    [update]
    I found this through a Google search.
    https://unity3d.com/unity/whats-new/unity-5.0

    And what was changed in my script was due to this:
    • Removed quick property accessors, like .rigidBody, .rigidbody2D, .camera, .light, .animation, .constantForce, .renderer, .audio, .networkView, .guiTexture, .collider, .collider2D, .particleSystem, .particleEmitter, .guiText, .hingeJoint for modularization. Instead, use GetComponent to get references.
