In this example, you can use MySQL to record and play back the movements of characters and some objects.

Setting up MySQL Environment

If you want to use MySQL, you will need to build a MySQL Server. The details are omitted, but the outline is as follows.

  1. Install MySQL Community Server. Operation confirmed with version [8.0.25].
    You can download MySQL product from here. (Archived Versions here)
    It can be installed using the MySQL Installer for Windows.
    • Setup Type: Developer Default
    • MySQL Root Password: Any
  2. Connect to the MySQL Server using MySQL Workbench.
  3. Paste the following command into the Query field.
    CREATE DATABASE sigverse;
    CREATE USER sigverse@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'sigverse';
    GRANT ALL ON sigverse.* TO sigverse@'%';
    USE sigverse;
    CREATE TABLE `playbacker_motion_data` (
      `recording_id` int NOT NULL,
      `elapsed_time` int NOT NULL,
      `data_type` int NOT NULL,
      `motion_data` text NOT NULL,
      PRIMARY KEY (`elapsed_time`,`data_type`,`recording_id`)
  4. Execute [Query]-[Execute (All or Selection)].

In the SIGVerse setting window, set to use MySQL.

  1. Click [SIGVerse]-[SIGVerse Settings] in the Unity menu to open the SIGVerse setting window.
