Important NoteS


Install multiple version of Unity

Unity updates frequently, sometimes several times per months, therefore, it's recommended and in most cases necessary to have several different versions of Unity install on your computer at the same time.

To learn how to do that, please check out the Unity Manual on Installing Multiple Versions of Unity.

Use the Recommended versions

Pay close attention to the required versions listed under each course section. Using the required version will ensure you have the smoothest possible experience with the fewest of issues.

Some project rubrics also require you to submit your project with specific versions so submitting with other versions might cause your project submission to be returned to you as ungradeable.

In the event that we update the recommended version of Unity after you have started your project, you may finish the project in the original version (though sometimes we will set a date in the future when we no longer accept that version).

Also be aware that even though it sometimes is possible, downgrading a Unity project to a lower Unity version than what was previously used for that same project, is officially not supported by Unity.

Don't reimport GVR Unity SDK

The GVR Unity SDK versions are listed below for your references. However, the SDK is already included in the downloads so there should be no need to download and import them into your Unity project.

If for some reason you need to reimport GVR Unity SDK or any other assets, it's recommended to remove the old version completely from your Unity Assets folder, before importing a newer version.

* Due to a security vulnerability discovered in Unity 2017.1.0 on August 13th, it's recommended to use Patch 2017.1.0p4 if you are using Windows. Mac users are not affected. For more information, see Unity's security announcement UNITY-SEC-844.

** If you plan to target iOS and use GvrAudio in your project, GVR Unity SDK v1.60.0 is the recommended option because there is a known issue with deploying to iOS when using GVR Unity SDK v1.70.0 and GvrAudio. The patch workaround may be used, but must be applied every time you create a new iOS build.

*** Do not download an entire repository. Instead, browse the folders and download the subfolder that contains the footage you would like to use.
