Unity (AKA: Unity3D/Unity2D, U3D for short) is currently the most popular multi-platform free game engine developed by Unity Technologies from Denmark (mainly written in C, C++ and C#, and first released in 2005). Users with C# and JavaScript programming experience can get started more quickly.

As a cross-platform and highly integrated game developing tool (i.e.: a comprehensive integration of professional game engine) that is similar to Adobe Director, Blender, Virtools or Torque Game Builder and so on interactive game development environments, Unity is designed to be a easy to use product right from the start. With it, users can easily create many types of interactive contents such as 3D video game, architectural visualization, real-time 3D animation, and more. In addition to the advantages of simple and user-friendly UI design, Unity’s features also include integrated visual editor, cross-platform release (allows you to quickly publish your game works to Windows, Mac OS X, Wii, XBOX, PlayStation, Android, iPhone, iOS, Windows Phone, WebGL, and many other platforms), terrain editor, shader, script editor, version control, and so on.

At last, if let me choose a more promising 3D & 2D game engine for mobile game, web game, console game and PC game development, I’d like to turn to Unity, rather than the similarly famous game engine GameMaker Studio which is more good at 2D game developing. Need to remind everyone, of course, Unity is not restricted to the development of 2D/3D games. In fact, it also can be used to produce fine 3D animation and so on many other types of interactive contents!

// Installation Notes //

for Unity 2019.x/2020.x:

with Unlocked Files & Universal License File:

  1. First of all, delete all the Unity related folders and files under C volume, such like:
    • C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\LocalLow\Unity\
    • C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Unity\
    • C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Unity\
  2. Delete all Unity related registry keys, like:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unity\UnityEditor\
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unity\
  3. Install Unity Hub from official site, do not run it
  4. Copy unlocked file ‘app.asar‘ to Unity Hub’s installation folder (like “D:\Program Files\Unity Hub\resources\“) and overwrite

  7. Delete the entire “Licensing” folder under Unity’s installation folder (like “D:\Program Files\Unity\Editor\Data\Resources\“). Otherwise, Unity maybe does not start up, and Unity Hub will show you this error “Unity is already in list. You cannot locate the same version.
  8. Copy the license file ‘Unity_lic.ulf‘ to “C:\ProgramData\Unity\” and overwrite (you may need to create the ‘Unity‘ folder manually)
  9. Run Unity Hub, and create a new project to pass the license validation (rather than add or open your old project now)
  10. Done

*** The UI of completely unlocked Unity is black, not grey.

*** Unity Hub is not necessary at all. It’s just for better user experience. And it always starts itself automatically in the background. In short, Unity Hub is not recommended for installation. But if you need create a new project in Unity, you have to install Unity Hub.

*** You have to use a firewall to prevent Unity Hub from connecting to the Internet, otherwise it will automatically update and cause Unity Hub to fail on license cracking.
