I am always afraid to update or re-import GC because more often than not, it will create a cascade of problems that takes days or weeks to fix, if they are fixable at all. I downloaded GC about 7 months ago and was really excited about it. I spent several months building my game with it.
Then GC updated itself and each and every one of my triggers, actions, etc ceased to function. Some disappeared entirely. Discord was no help, because no one believed me when I said that the only change that had taken place from when things were working to when they were not, was the GC update. I got hundreds of console errors that weren't there before the update. I was so frustrated that I quit working on my game for 6 months.
A month ago, I started again with an entirely new project, starting from scratch. I imported GC because when it works, it's awesome, but already the problems were beginning. On import, GC doesn't display the standard options. Clicking on the toolbar at the top of the screen shows 'Check for Updates' and 'Reinstall Game Creator' and that's it. You can't do anything but wait for it to fix itself, which may take minutes, hours, or days.
So that brings us to the present. I was having some trouble with the Dialog Module, and in trying to fix things, updated GC to version 9.9 against my better judgement. I shouldn't have done it, because I got hit with hundreds of compile errors about missing assembly references (as if I know how to fix that). So, again against my better judgement, I deleted GC and reinstalled it fresh, and now we are back at problem #1: the options don't show up when I try to use the program, only listing 'Check for Updates' and 'Reinstall Game Creator'. I paid good money for this asset and I'm going to use it-- but has anyone figured out how to get around these problems? I'm using Unity 2018.4.5f1 and always use the latest stable update.
