Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

PIE reference chain crash.

I am getting this crash after stopping PIE. Basically I have a UBlueprint which is instantiated at runtime from an ActorComponent, which then has a function that gets its "owning actor", which basically gets the ActorComponents Outer. Once the Blueprint function "GetOwningActor" has been called, if I stop PIE, the editor crashes saying that the Map file is still referenced through a chain. The function "GetOwningActor" does not store the actor that it returns anywhere, but it seems like CallFunc_GetOwningActor_ReturnValue does somehow keep a reference to it, causing this crash.

Is there anyway to stop a BlueprintCallable function from holding on to a reference?

This is the function that is breaking it, and as you can see there is no stored reference to anything, just returning an Outer.

AActor* UStateMachineX::GetOwningActor() { UStateMachineXComponent* Comp = GetSMComponent(); return Comp == NULL ? NULL : Cast(Comp->GetOuter()); }

UStateMachineXComponent* UStateMachineX::GetSMComponent() const { return Cast(GetOuter()); }

Is there a real solution by now? I have the exact same issue. My whole team as well. Happens only if minimum 1 Client is calling such a Outer-getting function.

For 1 Player (which is Server by default) there is no problem.
