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"

Packaging with Nativize BP crashes

I'll describe the crashing call stack below.

First is the call stack:

alt text

And the details:

[1] UActorComponent* USCS_Node::GetActualComponentTemplate(UBlueprintGeneratedClass* ActualBPGC) const crashes because ActualBPGC is nullptr.

[2] It is nullptr since previous call has a failed Cast.

             if (ComponentTemplate->HasAnyFlags(RF_InheritableComponentTemplate))
                 ObjectToCompare = Node->GetActualComponentTemplate(Cast<UBlueprintGeneratedClass>(BPGC->GetSuperClass()));

The cast here failed since BPGC's super class is a C++ class, not BP generated class, so it failed.

[3] This node is the DefaultSceneRoot of this Actor; this Actor is of BP class, and it's parent is a C++ class.

I'm not sure how to modify the code to make it work, but I suspect that this is kind of buggy, since BPGC's super class is not guaranteed to be BP generated.

Hi I tried to replace DefaultSceneRoot with a Scene Component and it works, so should I do this for all my Actor-based BP?

I'd highly recommend replacing the DefaultSceneRoot with a Scene Component, as this is typically what I'd do with my own setups.

However, as there is a crash occurring, could you please provide a detailed list of repro steps or a project that is crashing so that we can get a bug entered for this, as a crash is never intended behavior. Thanks!

OK, the steps is like:

  1. Make a C++ class inherits Actor

  2. Make a BP class inherits previous class

  3. keep the DefaultSceneRoot there

Package the project with this kind of class, with Nativize enabled of course, then you might encounter this crash. I say 'might' since it looks like not every Actor with this setup make Nativize packaging crash, but at least I replaced many DefaultSceneRoot with Scene and there becomes no such crash.

I have been unable to reproduce the crash following the steps you've provided. If you have a simplified test project that is experiencing the crash, please zip it up, upload it to Dropbox, and provide a download link. Then we can go ahead and get a bug report entered.

Thank you!
