Objective
We need to run though the UI/UX from beginning to end and check screen are working.  Also the naming of them using the word "Sync" seems outdated now and anew naming convention would be found.  This was used for Paradox game engine because of their base classes which does not exist in Unity.

We also need to be able to set the default scene so it shows the logo and run the game from start to finished when needed for testing.

Also add a mouse click to the mouse clicking buttons.

Hey I don't have the agenda that I signed up for listed under my agendas.



I see your name in there @eric.
-Robert

Hey, sorry I am a little late to sign up for the team collaboration sprint.  I just hit accept.  Could you see if it registered me?



This is working on my phone.
-Robert

@Team I have the yellow highlight feature fixed I think....  Can I have two people review this and confirm they only see their name, role, or team highlighted only with the correct count at the top one per highlight.

Thanks,
James Fleming


@Eric I would like to assign you this agenda if you don't mind this sprint so we can really focus on the flow of the MCU application.  Would that be ok with you?

Thanks,
James Fleming


@Eric I have the asset you uploaded merged into the delta branch can you open the MCU and go to File > Unity > Get Latest and then open up unity.  In the IsGameable folder you will find the assets you uploaded.

Thanks,
James Fleming


@James

 

I flagged 4 assets for removal. 3 prefabs, and 1 unity package. The rest of the assets Eric uploaded, I set to isGamable and the branches are merged. 




GameProgrammer  - Anthony Michelizzi

Success! It works!
-Robert

@Robert Awesome will you try the File > Build & Run feature in Unity.

Thanks,
James Fleming


@James

"Playmode" is working after get latest! XD
-Robert

I see everything and everyone highlghted


GameProgrammer  - Anthony Michelizzi

@Robert Ok thank you I'll work on that tomorrow.

Thanks,
James Fleming


Not anymore :D. I just see my name and @sound highlighted.
-Robert

@James,

As far as the Highlights go: I see others highlighted.
-Robert

Yeah, sure.

@Eric Would you have time tonight to discuss this in the meeting I'm going to have with Robert at 7PM CST?

Thanks,
James Fleming


Is there a certain way you want me to insert what I have made into the assets folder?

Ok, I have downloaded the file.  I am guessing that you want me to use the unity.member.collaboration?



@Eric Will you download and install this please.  Let me know when you have that done.  This program will allow you to upload your changes in unity but any 3d assets you create manually that are not already in the game will need to be attached to an agenda.

Thanks,
James Fleming


I couldn't download the one asset because of my rank, I believe I uploaded the unity package with the agenda but I will send another link.

-Robert

@Robert I'm sorry I just now was able to get on and review things do you have time tomorrow after 6PM CST?

Thanks,
James Fleming


Hey James, Maybe we can get on a meeting on TV so that you can see what I am seeing. I am getting errors again. Would about an hour from now work?
-Robert

@Robert Will you go to File > Build & Run and try that out?

Thanks,
James Fleming


It worked without doing that.
-Robert

@Robert Did you run the Project Clean button under unity?  just wondering from earlier today?  or did it work without doing that?

Thanks,
James Fleming


I'm not sure. I loge in to try it again and it seemed to have worked. :)
-Robert

@Eric Will you download this and tell me if it works for you?

Thanks,
James Fleming


@Robert Oh what happen that fixed it?

Thanks,
James Fleming


@James

All seems to be working now! :)
-Robert

Sure, sounds good. Let me download TV on this PC really quick.
-Robert

@Robert If you have time tonight maybe we could get into a TV meeting?

Thanks,
James Fleming


@Robert can you screen shot the console screen error in red they will be at the bottom of Unity

Thanks,
James Fleming


I still get the same error when I try to go to "playmode".
-Robert

Sure, I'll give this a try later tonight.
-Robert

@Robert Will you download this again install it.  Then under the unity menu you will see a "Clean Project" button click that then do a get latest and try to open the project again.  Let see if that will fix it.  Thanks for testing this I really needed someone outside of programming to do it so I can look for bugs.

Thanks,
James Fleming


@Robert I do see the error and I'm working on a solution for that branch as soon as I get it fix I will let you know.  Thank you for trying it.  It will probably late tomorrow before I can spend anymore time on it.

Thanks,
James Fleming


Awesome!

I am able to get in, but when I hit playmode, a message comes up saying that "All compiler errors have to be fixed before you can enter playmode".
-Robert


Thanks,
James Fleming


I'll give this a shot. Is there a link to the latest and greatest member collaboration utility?



-Robert

The user interface basic layout is now done and checked in.  If anyone wants to use the member collaboration utility and review it.

Thanks,
James Fleming


Welcome, everyone, to another sprint. As we push forward in our project, the challenges we conquer as a team, absolutely amaze me.  With that being said, lets get started :).

Does anyone have any comments, questions, or concerns about the agenda they are assigned too?  If you need your agenda defined better or you're not sure where to start, please post on the kanban discussion any questions and we can start figuring it out as a team.
