Edit an XML File?

I have created an XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>

	<Player1 name = "Player1">

		<Level> 1 </Level>
		<XP> 1 </XP>

	<Player2 name = "Player2">

		<Level> 1 </Level>
		<XP> 1 </XP>

	<Player3 name = "Player2">

		<Level> 1 </Level>
		<XP> 1 </XP>



How can I access something like EveryPlayer → Player2 → Level and change it to a different value? Also, how can I link this XML file within Unity? Do I just put it in the Assets folder??

If you have a choice of data format, consider using a Unity ScriptableObject instead of XML. ScriptableObjects are easy to edit within the Unity editor, and they’re easy to manipulate with you game scripts. Here’s a good step-by-step tutorial on ScriptableObjects: http://www.jacobpennock.com/Blog/?p=670

If you absolutely have to use XML, you can just drop the XML file into your Assets folder. From there, you can treat it as a TextAsset.

If you’re using C#, you can use a script like this to define the structure of your XML file and a routine to load it:

using UnityEngine;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml.Serialization;

public class EveryPlayer {
	public Player Player1;
	public Player Player2;
	public Player Player3;
	public static EveryPlayer Load(TextAsset xmlFile) {
		XmlSerializer xmlSerializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(EveryPlayer));
		return xmlSerializer.Deserialize(new StringReader(xmlFile.text)) as EveryPlayer;

public class Player {
	public string Name;
	public int Level;
	public int XP;

To test this out, I dropped your XML file into a project along with the script above, and then created another script that I added to an object. I dragged the XML file into the script’s “Xml File” property.

public class XMLTest : MonoBehaviour {
    public TextAsset xmlFile;

    void Start() {
        EveryPlayer everyPlayer = EveryPlayer.Load(xmlFile);
        Debug.Log("Player1's level is " + everyPlayer.Player1.Level);

If you want to save the XML, you can write something similar to the Load() method above, but call it Save().
