update problem: The namespace `global::' already contains a definition for `AK'

+6 votes


I'm updating wwise unity integration from 2016.2.2 to 2017.1.3. After the update, I get this compile error

Assets/Wwise/Deployment/API/Handwritten/WwiseTypes.cs(6,14): error CS0101: The namespace `global::' already contains a definition for `AK'

The conflict come from Wwise_IDs.cs which has 

public class AK
    public class EVENTS


I regenerated the header file Wwise_IDs.h with Wwise 2017.1.3, then regenerated Wwise_IDs.cs with Unity->Assets->Wwise->Convert Wwise SoundBank IDs but the conflict remains. 

What could be the problem?

I just tested with an empty project with only wwise unity integration along with a new wwise project with a simple event. The bug is still there. The generated Wwise_IDs.cs still has a class called "AK" which is conflicting with namespace AK.Wwise in WwiseTypes.cs. This namespace was not present in the previous version we used.

Is there any update on this issue? did you solve it?

We ended not upgrading Wwise as it was not urgent and haven't tested newer Wwise since. We have no update on the issue. It seems like a basic issue when trying to use Wwise_IDs.cs with Unity so either we have a silly configuration problem in our project or there's an issue with Wwise Unity integration. Now that I see there's +3 votes, I know we're not the only ones with this problem.

The workaround for this is to rename "public class AK" to "namespace AK".

It's supposedly been fixed in Wwise 2017.2.1 Unity integration but I haven't tested it myself.
