4.8 Blueprint Editor Crash Bug!
I was able to find a bug that happens when you migrate from 4.7 to 4.8 which completely crashes your blueprint editor preventing it from ever opening again. I have reproduced this in the following way:
1)Open a New 4.7 blank project.
2)Create a BlueprintFunctionLibrary
3)Inside of the FunctionLibrary, create a new function
4)Create a local variable of HitResult
5)Drag a get reference to the blueprint graph
6)One the HitResult variable get node you just pulled out, Right click and "Split Struct"
Save the project.
7)Create a New 4.8 blank project
8)From your 4.7 project, Migrate your BlueprintFunctionLibrary to your new 4.8 project.
9)Open your 4.8 project and try opening the level blueprint.
It crashes the engine hardcore. The root cause I have it down to is that the HitResult Split Struct is not supported when moved to 4.8.
Thanks for the report! I was able to reproduce this in 4.8.1, however it appears to have already been fixed in our internal build, and this fix should be included in the next major release (4.9). I'll let the developers know regardless, to see if they are able to include the fix in a hotfix. Thanks again!
