Unity3d and Synergy issues

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys, Synergy sometimes has issues when working in 3D tools like Unity3D, especially if both of the machines its connected two are running it. My setup is Win7 x64 and El Captain 10.11.3, but these issues are happening for more than 6 moths now so not really version issue. I would advise you download free version of unity, check that you download the test project with it (its in part of the installer, opt in), and install it to both PCs. After that switch to iOS or Andorid and try to make builds on both machines. This should demonstrate issues. Issues: - Sometimes you can't connect to the other PC at all (watch dog something something ?) - Every now and then the mouse gets blocked on one machine (expecially when building the project, our is huge) - Sometimes synergy crashes and mouse is moving 1px per minute (keyboard not working at all?), its really hard to get it out of that state as you can't click the close now button, but as soon as you manage to do so system contiues working. Thanks

The UNITY3D issue of the mouse not being able to move object in the editor is a huge problem as it requires me to use a second mouse (making synergy useless), this hasn't been fixed yet i found a solution unfortunately its a program from a different vendor. it works I can move objects in the editor windows and all the axis (y up/down is funky) also drag and and change values in the inspector which does not work in unity3d with Synergy, this issue has been ignored and not fixed for over a year. I wish I could use Synergy and support the dev but there is no fix in the works at the moment that i know of. I found this app works for me in unity3D using windows and MAC OS, you just need to place your screens in the right place, it found the app running on the other mac automatically. You need to disable the synergy service on windows and close synergy on any PC you want to try this app its free for personal use supports 2 monitors for free need Pro version :( if you got more than 2.
