DOTS game works in editor, but subscene does not load in build?

I have been getting completed builds but entities/subscene do not load in the build?

In the editor, the game works perfectly.

I have been working on this for quite awhile trying to skim the internet for a solution, but couldn’t find any that were answered, thus I am here.

I get this error from the player debug file

Could not open file C:/Users/Enerology/Desktop/Tower Defense Dots/Tower Defense Test v0.1_Data/StreamingAssets/SubScenes/306c44059c2951d409c2be4fdee1803d.entityheader for read 
(Filename: C:\buildslave\unity\build\Runtime/File/OpenFileCache.cpp Line: 61)

IOException: Failed to read from C:/Users/Enerology/Desktop/Tower Defense Dots/Tower Defense Test v0.1_Data/StreamingAssets/SubScenes/306c44059c2951d409c2be4fdee1803d.entityheader!

Leave a comment below if you need more information.

Turns out that you need to install the “Platforms” package AND the “Platforms.Windows” package to get it to work with subscenes.


Alternative solution to this is to write/read this data manually from code.

OMG thankyou @enerology. This was driving me nuts!
The Hybrid Renderer just doesn’t work without these packages and there is no errors to indicate it.
