Enable NoesisGUI Mobile version to work with Unity Free!

22 Feb 2015, 15:22

I see that Unity allows native code plugins to work with the Mobile versions of Unity Free (but not desktop versions).
Is it possible to enable Noesis to work on Unity Free mobile?

Thanks!

Yes, it can be done. We know that several clients tried it. But you cannot, for example, visualize the XAML inside the Editor.

This is a useless limitation of Unity that they should remove. I have talked in private with several developers and they agree that it is something that may happen in the future.

So you mean, the XAMLs that we build will not run in the editor but on actual mobile devices for Unity Free?

Last time I tried, Play mode was not working because although our DLL was loaded, Unity was not calling us in the corresponding native hooks where we initialize and render stuff.

Yes, that works... but the big problem is that a Native Low-Level Plugin implements a set of callbacks that must be invoked by Unity. And that is only done in Unity Pro. There is no easy way to hack this, probably intercepting the calls to the device.
