How to update

With every new update, We try to make the plugin better. Add new features, improve stability, usability and code base structure. When a new version is available, you can find out what’s new with the versions page.

Sometimes in order to implement a new feature or improve the code structure we have to change some of the plugin files / folders or method names. It will be of course described in version notes. But if you simply click update in the Asset Store, you may get duplicated or conflicted files.

After the new plugin version is downloaded and unpacked to your project settings window will be opened automatically in the Inspector view. It for some reason it wasn’t opened after you imported a new version, open plugins settings yourself. 

Window → Stan's Assets → Ultimate Mobile → Edit Settings

If this was a minor update. For example v 9.3 to 9.3.1 / 9.3.3 / 9.3.7, etc - It means that we haven't made any significant changes with the plugin structure, and you will see a message similar to the screenshot bellow. All you need to do in this case - is to press a "Upgrade Resources" button and you good.

If the message looks similar this one:

It means that some plugin parts was changed, and keeping old ones may result as unwanted conflicts or unpredicted bahavior. So we recommend to remove the old plugin version completely before installing new one.

Simply press "Remove" button, and then install a new version. And do not worry about your settings, it will remain unharmful. Remove button will remove only plugin files settings files will be unharmed. And if you want to transfer your the setting to another project, you might be interested ti read the next chapter.

Settings Location

All Stan's Assets plugins settings file are located under:

Assets/Plugins/StansAssets/Support/Settings/Resources

This folder will remain unharmed by the plugin removal tool. In case you want to transfer setting to the another project, you can just copy  / paste files from this folder to another project.

I case you want manually remove and reinstall a plugin, or you also have another Stan's Assets plugins inside your project. you can just remove and following folders:

  • All folders under: Assets/Plugins/StansAssets/ except Assets/Plugins/StansAssets/Support/Settings/Resources
  • Assets/Plugins/ -  You can remove whole folder, in case you do not have any other plugins inside your project, or your own files inside Plugins folder. And if you do, remove only files that are related to plugin you want to remove.  This step can be unclear, we are defiantly trying to use understandable naming convention for our files, so it should be easy to determine what files / folder are related to plugin you trying to remove. But that's why we strongly recommend plugin removal tool usage, since it will be definitely safe for other product you have inside your project.
