    This is still not resolved.

    What's strange is I never had this issue on my old computer but now the problem exists on my new computer.

    Certain models loaded from asset bundles show up as pink. Sometimes reapplying the shader does not work.

    Not really sure how to fix this or what to do about it. I added shaders to always included, I tried reapplying shaders and it works for Editor but objects are still pink on Android build.

    I have added a message on the forum @Unity, to hopefully return some attention to this.

    Still happening in Unity 2019.1.14. Finding this issue as closed in Unity 5 is embarassing.

    this worked for me but in built game you should put a list of shaders to build in settings or put the min a built scene that can never navigate to xD`using System.Collections; using System.Collections.Generic; using UnityEngine;
    this script should be putted in the parent of the asset bundle spawner and call FixeShaders Function just afterspawning the prefab from assets bundle
    public class ShaderBrinisFixe : MonoBehaviour {

    // Create a material from code
    public void FixeSahders()
    // Create a material with transparent diffuse shader

    // assign the material to the renderer
    foreach (ParticleSystemRenderer p in gameObject.GetComponentsInChildren<ParticleSystemRenderer>())
    p.material.shader= Shader.Find(;
    } `

    Just upgrade Unity and my bundel comes in but the shaders are blank. Texture name is there but in scène everything is pink. Of i manualy set shaders to standaard everything is fine. Unfortunate you can nog select all imported objects and set their shaders, thuis component disapears when multiple selecting

    Why has this been resolved when it isn't fixed? This is still occurring on my version 5.4.3f1 (pro).

    Please can someone respond rather than ignoring the issue for the last two years and then falsely claiming it is fixed.
