Asset - Database


How to reproduce:
1. Create a new 3D template project

    It appears as fixed for 2020.1, 2020.2 and 2029.4, but those are the general versions of unity, according to the info below, the fixes are for the versions 2020.2.0a21, 2020.1.2f1and 2019.4.8f1 which hasn't be released yet, but they should be soon available.

    So looking forward to check these fixed versions and check that everything works properly.

    Why is it stated as fixed? I can't update Unity because of this prefab bug :(

    I am the developer of Game Kit Controller, and I am really looking forward to see this issue fixed. Hope there are news about it soon, about that fix in review for 2020.2.

    Please fix this! I just encountered the problem when trying to import GKC from the UAS into Unity 2019 and now 2020. Major Bummer :-(

    It is very frustrating to see how this bug remains from version 2019.3.15f1 to the last 2020.1...

    Agreed major issue. I have checked several other forums where it is discussed many people encounter this issue.

    Agree that this is a major issue. Despite the low vote count (currently at 11, as I'm writing this), given discussions I've read on Discord and other forums, this issue is affected many more people than the vote count would suggest.
