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"

Access violation editor crash

Occurring 100% of the time. Seems to have something to do with level streaming. We have a completely empty master persistent level and then two child levels. Both are loaded all the time. After loading the master level with these two sub levels and playing the game in the editor viewport, this crash happens when leaving the game with ESC. Pretty much stops me from working now.

Seems to happen here in World.cpp

 bool UWorld::IsGameWorld() const
     return WorldType == EWorldType::Game || WorldType == EWorldType::PIE;

Hi, do you have navigation bounds volumes in the streaming levels? It seems like it crashing trying to unload navigation data.

Could you tell me how you stream sub-levels? They are marked as "Always Loaded" or you are using blueprints to load them?

Indeed, one of the sub levels has a navigation volume. Just tested moving it to the empty persistent level but still crashes.

Sub levels are set to always loaded at the moment.

Could you delete all Recast actors in all levels, then place navigation volume in the persistent level and then Build->Build Paths? It should help. Also as a last option you can set RebuildAtRuntime property in Recast actor to 'true'.

Alright, deleting everything nav-related in the sub level and then putting an new navigation volume into the persistent level has fixed the crash. Thanks a lot.

Is this expected or just buggy?

Hm, sounds more like this is expected. An Access Violation is a NULL pointer exception. So you are trying to access to a pointer variable that is empty (NULL). But ddvlost can explain better to you why exactly this is happening at this point (:

avatar image ddvlost STAFF Mar 24 '15 at 11:54 AM

Good to know that this workaround works for you. This crash is not expected, and was caused by a stale Recast actor in the streaming level. Recast actors should exist only in the persistent level. We will make proper fix for 4.8.
