Error: Unity Missing Mono Script

What's Causing This Error

The 'Unity missing Mono script' error generally occurs when Unity is unable to find a MonoBehaviour script that is attached to an object in your scene. There are several reasons why this might be happening:

  1. Deleted Script: The most common cause of the error is that the script was deleted from your project directory, but there's still an object in the scene that has the script attached.

  2. Renamed Script or Namespace: If you've renamed the script file or the namespace/class inside the script, Unity may not be able to locate and link it correctly.

  3. Corrupted or Unreadable File: Sometimes, files can become corrupted or unreadable due to disk errors or during transfers. This could cause Unity to fail to recognize them.

  4. Incorrect Assembly Definition: If your project uses assembly definitions, and your script isn't included properly in the definition file, Unity won't be able to find it.

Solution - Here's How To Resolve It

Here are some possible solutions based on what might be causing the error:

  1. Check for Deleted Scripts: Go through your game objects to see if any are still referencing a script that has been deleted. If you find any such references, remove them.

  2. Correct Script Names: Ensure the script name and its file name are exactly the same (capitalization matters).

  3. Correct Namespace/Class Name: If you've changed the namespace/class name inside the script, either change it back to what it was before or update the reference in the game object.

  4. Check for Corrupted Files: Try opening the script file in a code editor to see if it's readable. If it's corrupted, you may need to restore it from a backup or re-write it.

  5. Check Assembly Definitions: If you're using assembly definitions, ensure that your scripts are included properly in the definition files.

By following these steps, you should be able to resolve the 'Unity missing Mono script' error.
