Getting Started

Welcome to Olin's PInT Out Maine subteam's official/unnoficial documentation site! Here you'll be able to find documentation specifc to our subteam(i.e how we mantain our github repository). If you're ever lost about a certain script or how to reinstall an application, come here!

Note: This is maintained by Kenneth Xiong '27. There are some things that are missing because I forgot about them, or I don't understand how they work. If there's an error or something missing, feel free to reach out.

Installing Unity

We use version 2020.3.32f1 of Unity. Any other version will not be able to open the project.

  1. Go to and download version 2020.3.32f1 of Unity for you os(runder 2020.x tab). DO NOT OPEN THE FILE YET!

  2. Download Unity Hub.

  3. Open Unity Hub FIRST. Follow the prompts to create a new account.

Installing Github

You might be thinking "I'm not a programmer, I don't need this," get it :3

  1. Download Git for your os here.
  2. Run the file with default settings. Make sure that git is added to your computer's PATH.
  3. Download Github Desktop here.

    This step is not optional for advanced users. Unity is not command line friendly when it comes merging branches.

  4. Run the installation file and log in.

    If you haven't already now is a good time to create a github account.

  5. Select "Clone a Repository from the Internet". Paste "" into the space for a web adress. Make note of file path that the repository has been copied to. You will need it in the next step.

    If this throws an error, reach out to Kenneth. You don't have access to the repository(oops!).

  6. Open Unity Hub. Click "Add Project" and select "From Disk". Nagivate to where you cloned repository earlier. If everything was setup correctly, the project should open in Unity. YAY!!!!

Installing Photoshop

Different from past semesters, we will be using photoshop to create our pixel art. Fun Fact! Olin gives all students access to the entire Adobe suite.

  1. Self explanatory. Download Adobe Creative Cloud(if you haven't already). Install Photoshop.

That's it! You're now ready to start designing :)
