    Unity Support for Windows 10


    Today, Unity announced the release of Unity 5.2 which includes support for Windows 10 and the Universal Windows Platform (UWP).

    With UWP support in Unity 5.2, developers can build a single game for Windows 10 that targets multiple devices ranging from phones to tablets to PCs to Xbox. This means that multiple screen sizes and resolutions, different device capabilities, and a wide range of aspect ratios are all supported within a single game.

    To learn more about Unity support for Windows 10, please check out the video below. This talk, from the Build 2015 conference in April, provides information and demos showing how to write Unity games that use the Universal Windows Platform and target multiple devices.

    (see video at source)

    Also, starting Unity 5.2, Visual Studio becomes the new default Unity scripting editor on Windows. The Unity installer on Windows offers to install by default the free Visual Studio Community 2015 and the Visual Studio 2015 Tools for Unity. Unity will automatically pick up VSTU where it is installed. Scripts will open directly into Visual Studio where you’ll be able to write and debug your Unity game. More on Visual Studio blog and check out these new Visual Studio tools and reading the documentation.

    Does Unity 5.2 support both x32 and x64? As I noticed that on the Unity website, it will download Unity WebPlayer x64 4.6.6f2.

    If you're talking about the build output for Windows platform, yes it does support both 32-bit and 64-bit builds. If you're talking about the editor, yes it also does, it does have 2 separate installer for 32-bit and 64-bit. The one that you saw is a WebPlayer platform demo for Unity 4.6 and not 5.x.

    For Unity 5.2 download, you can go here: Unity - Update

    Unity is game engine used to develop games for various platforms.
    Wikipedia

    If you're not interested in developing games or don't develop games yourself its no surprise you never heard of unity.

    What I meant to ask was with Unity 4.x, there used to be both a x64 version and regular version which I assume is x86. I'm talking about the WebPlayer actually or the plug-in, I always thought on a x64 platform, one needed both a x64 and a x86 version unless 5.2 works on both. I already have 5.2 which is just called 5.2 and I noticed if I went to:
    Unity - Web Player Download

    It will download a x64 version of 4.6, that's why I was asking. I'm not sure how I got unity originally except I know with the extension enabled, it can sometimes freeze my facebook newsfeed reading in Google Chrome.

    Hi there

    this is where some Technical terms get really confusing -- Unity was often used in a Virtual Machine environment when you operated the Guest VM in "Unity Mode" - which essentially meant that you ran the GUEST VM apps directly as an application from the HOST desktop - for example you could run EXCEL directly from a Linux HOST desktop in a Window rather than running EXCEL from the Windows VM desktop.

    Cheers

    Unity is also the graphical shell on GNOME for Ubuntu Linux.

    I was hardly surprised to find Unity Web Player doesn't work with Edge.
