Troubleshoot Issues of Installing Tiny Mode on Unity 2019.1


According to documentation, Tiny Mode package was implemented on Unity 2018.3 initially, maybe that’s why I encountered some issues while installing the package on Unity 2019.1. The following are the issues and the fixes.


  • Unity 2019.1.4f1
  • Tiny Mode 0.14.5-preview


  • Error occurs right after installing the Tiny Mode package

Library\PackageCache\com.unity.tiny@0.14.5-preview\Editor\Export\TinyAssetExporter.cs(712,38): error CS1061: 'TMP_FontAsset' does not contain a definition for 'characterDictionary' and no accessible extension method 'characterDictionary' accepting a first argument of type 'TMP_FontAsset' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

Current version of Tiny Mode doesn’t support the latest TextMeshPro. We need to downgrade the TextMeshPro to 1.3.0 like the image below.

  • Failed to execute Import Samples in the menu of Tiny Mode

Exception: Failed to update dependencies:
TINY SHELL> D:\Temp\TinyMode Test\Tiny\Dist

Make sure the project path doesn’t contain any space.

  • Can’t find the Workshop folder mentioned in the workshop video

The Workshop folder mentioned in the video was for demonstration. The full version of the project can be found at /Assets/TinySamples/BasicWorkshop.

  • There is no MainGroup in the scene of BasicWorkshop project

MainGroup and other EntityGroup were placed in the /Assets/TinySamples/BasicWorkshop/Entities.
