Unity launcher (C#)


 

Description

While working on projects for different clients where I wasn't really allowed to upgrade them to the newest Unity versions, because of possible breaking and/or being out of sync, I noticed the inconvience of having to look through your program files to find the correct Unity version to launch. I made a small tool that can both automate this task or make it very user-friendly. The program scans the given directory for installed Unity versions and allows the user to simply select an installed Unity version from the dropdown list. Alternatively, a user or simply drag a Unity project folder and the corresponding Unity version will launch. I personally prefer using the dropdown menu as I know by heart which version the project that I want to work on is, meaning I don't have to search for its Unity folder. I used this opportunity to get to use Windows forms for the first time and learn some new things.
 

Challenges

  • * Learning how to work with Winforms and setting up a simple user friendly interface.
  • * Handling dragging and dropping from folders.
