It's 1:20 AM and after about 5 hours of pushing and tugging I managed to finally get Unity Hybrid ECS working. Every guide on the internet is filled with outdated crap, and one of the last results (which is not mentioned in the official docs) is Unity's in-house samples, which are up-to-date. And it's actually really fucking simple.
I'm experiencing an emotion that's right somewhere in the middle of euphoria and bloodrage. But at least I can now make steps towards integrating ECS into my game.
edit: On a related note; is there still a difference between hybrid and pure ECS? The only way I can see people actually doing this is by converting their GameObjects to entities with a script in the Entities package, and then squishing pure IComponentData's in ComponentSystems.2
Why is the new input system in Unity disabled by default? Just spent a good hour not understanding why it didn't catch any input only to find I should've called inputManager.Enable() on it.1
I hate this trend of making a video out of every bit of information or tutorial you can find. Videos are slow, I cannot properly skip forward to the part I need and the people making these videos are hellbent on not editing out their mistakes to "be more genuine" or something fucking stupid like that.
I want some good old text-based guides. I want docs, READMEs and the like. I don't want to hear you coughing and spitting on your ultrawide monitor for 30 minutes only to find out what I need to know is in video 4 of your ongoing paid series.6
This is pretty cool. IDK when this was changed, but if you disable all toolbars in Visual Studio, the Send Feedback button won't take up an empty line anymore.3
Anyone else ever had to install Jekyll on Windows?
Man, what a displeasure the last four hours were. SSL errors everywhere because Ruby versions have differing SSL certificates for downloading gems or something, having to install the devkit three times, messing with Linux Subsystem and finding out the Ubuntu repos do not have a new enough Ruby version to support what you're doing.
All this to have some fun with GH pages. It's physically exhausting.2
