Unity 5 and learning tutorial scripting

Docs & Tutorials

-

-

I'm a new Unity user and I went through the Roll-a-Ball and currently am doing the Space Shooter tutorials via the videos. The C# scripting guiding process (and probably other things too) is obsolete and needs to be updated to Unity 5's site. I myself don't have scripting experience and find these videos invaluable to proceed. I do not understand what the people (who are trying to help me through Youtube comments) are saying. So please update the tutorial videos. Especially the beginning ones.

    I think this problem is more serious than it first seems. Although the videos to teach you a basic understanding of what you need to be doing, without the actual knowledge of how to do it you are left scratching your head. Being the resourceful guy that I am, I managed to look up and find a few ways to get around certain areas, but this really isn't beginner level stuff. Because of this, the tutorials become a challenging experience more than a learning one. There was one notification of outdated material and it was hardly that important, but it has been proven that the video can be slightly altered to help inform people without having to redo the entire video, so why exactly aren't the videos informing beginners of the proper steps?

    The main thing I would say is that there is very little, like 1-2% of Beginner scripting that's deprecated as of Unity 5, so working through those, especially for someone with what Rurounin is describing is our recommend way to learn about programming.

    Is it simply the parts of Space shooter not using latest API that are confusing you? We updated Roll a ball entirely for Unity 5 so that works, otherwise I'm not sure how this is blocking you? please elaborate.

    Have you checked out the official thread for these tutorials?

    Here is a link to the thread on Space Shooter:
    http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/space-shooter-tutorial-q-a.313899/

    This will also cover changes from the time this project was created to the current version.

    Please don't rely on YouTube comments, but please do use the official forum post!

    I very much second this, i was willing to actually learn scripting properly when i normally wouldn't touch scripts with a five foot pole, the fact that the videos was totally useless to a beginner really killed my drive, i was going to go balls to the walls with Unity, i was prepared to do every single tutorial you had put up as i found it so much fun to reconnect with my creative self i thought was lost after i was done with school, i haven't felt this good in a very long time, but i have realized without the proper scripting knowledge i'd be in way over my head.
