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"

Unhidden Arrow Component crashes packaged project

If you spawn a blueprint based on the Character class, and have this in its construction script: alt text

... then the game will crash as soon as you spawn the blueprint in question, BUT ONLY IN PACKAGED VERSION.

While running PIE or Standalone launch from the editor, everything works and unfortunately there are no warnings or errors of any kind logged, so you have no idea... but as soon as you try a packaged version: earth shattering kaboom! Crash reporter is NOT invoked. Took a while to track this one down... with what, 15 hours left until game jam deadline :) Hehe... (commence hang wringing)

Exact engine version, binary from launcher, 4.8.1-2591939+++depot+UE4-Releases+4.8

Product Version: UE 4.8

Hiya Xenome,

Thanks for the report! I can reproduce this crash in 4.8.1, however it's already been fixed in our internal build. Regardless, the Arrow Component won't show up in a packaged game because it's editor only. Is there a reason you're trying to un-hide the arrow component?

If it's already fixed, then everything is okay! The only reason I had it unhidden was because I needed to see which direction an otherwise non-directional-looking mesh was facing. So it was simply a pure debug thing. Just that the crashing packaged version threw me off on a tangent there for a while until I managed to figure out what the problem was...

Hey, can anyone confirm it is fixed? I am using engine version 4.15.2, and if I unhide the arrow component on shipping build on Android, I still get a crash. on startup

Hello Nachilau,

The arrow component is an editor only tool meaning that it will not show up within a packaged build. Your issue may be separate from the nature of this issue. Please create a new post about your issue to help us track your issue separately.

I used another static mesh of an arrow and added it to my blueprint so that it would appear in game. If anyone has a static mesh that would identify which direction is forward, this can be used as a workaround.
