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"

Can not turn off plugin and can not upgrade to 4.12

Tried several ways to upgrade my project to 4.12 from 4.11 but it always crashes on startup.

  • cloned my project

  • converted it to 4.12

  • crash because of Victory plugin being not compatible

  • cloned my project

  • set off victory plugin in the editor

  • converted to 4.12

  • tried opening it, crash

  • deleted victory plugin folder

  • tried restart, crash

  • cloned my project

  • set off victory plugin in the editor

  • deleted intermediate folder

  • tried restart, crash

  • cloned my project

  • set off victory plugin with editing u.project

  • set to 4.12 with right click on u.project

  • tried opening it, crash

  • cloned my project

  • set off victory plugin with editing u.project

  • deleted intermediate folder and victorypluginfolder

  • tried opening it, crash

I have not used anything of the victory plugin in my project but it even crashes when I turn it off and try to open the project again. This is all I get in the crash report when opening it with 4.12:

 MachineId:010D4D4446470DC55E5144BA937E4EAE
 EpicAccountId:696a6dfa87bc4cc98bfae571483facf0
 
 You do not have any debugging symbols required to display the callstack for this crash.

Attached is the crash report stuff for when only turning off the plugin and opening in 4.11

Atleast I never converted my project in place, otherwise everything would be corrupted I guess.

Hey Davision,

As this is a crash related to the Victory plugin, you'll need to get in touch with the creator of the plugin for support, as we do not provide support for 3rd party plugins.

Have a great day

But when turning plugins off is not working that is only related to the plugin that is turned off?

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to say. If the crash is occurring when you're working with the Victory plugin, then the issue most likely lies with some incompatibilities that are related to using that particular plugin. Which is why I suggest getting in touch with the creator of that plugin for more support.

I'm just saying the issue might be just as well be a issue with the overall turning off of plugins in UE4 and might have nothing to do with the specific plugin that gets turned off. I'm not working with the plugin, I don't want to work with the plugin but I'm unable to turn it off since any turning off crashes the editor on restart. Now I'm stuck with it and can not upgrade to 4.12 that is the issue here.

Try following steps:

  • Make sure UEditor isn't running at all (Ctrl+Shift+Esc).

  • Remove the plugin from your .uproject.

  • Delete Plugins folder from your project.

  • Delete Binaries folder from your project.

  • Delete Config folder from your project (backup Inputs config).

  • Delete Intermediate folder from your project.

  • Delete Saved folder from your project.

  • Right click .uproject and switch project version to 4.12.

  • Right click .uproject file and generate VStudio files.

  • Compile in 'Developement Editor Win64' mode in VStudio.

  • Try to open your project in Unreal editor.

That should work :)

That worked til I opened my map, there it crashed again. I skipped the VStudio part though because it said there I don't have any source code. I made everything in blueprint. I also had no Binaries folder but deleted all folder except the Content folder. It also crashes when I open any blueprint, that includes the starter content blueprints. Might this be a issue with UE4 project converting to 4.12 or is it still related to the plugin?

This is all I get in the crash report: MachineId:010D4D4446470DC55E5144BA937E4EAE EpicAccountId:696a6dfa87bc4cc98bfae571483facf0

Interestingly, after I opened the project in 4.12, I can switch back to 4.11 and open it there and then get the same crashing as in 4.12 but there I get then much more in the crash message: https://codedump.io/share/Fu24r2sbH0eG/1/crash-log-ue4

avatar image Davision Aug 26 '16 at 08:02 PM

When I do it all without the switch to 4.12 I get the same crashing so I guess it is still the plugin not getting properly turned off which is either a problem with the Victory plugin or with plugins in general.

If you still have a crash when opening the map, that means something somewhere in your blueprints are using his plugin's nodes.

avatar image Davision Aug 26 '16 at 09:29 PM

I could not find anything, I searched in all blueprints for anything Victory. Odd is also that the starter content blueprints, that I never touched, crash on opening,

avatar image Davision Aug 27 '16 at 11:53 AM

Turns out you are right, I used a lot of nodes of the Victory plugin without even noticing. Like half of the victory plugin nodes don't have victory in the name so this will be a nightmare to track them all down not to mention that a good chunk of my game will plainly not be working anymore and a lot might not be possible to work without using the plugin. Oh well looks like I'm stuck with 4.11 and this plugin in any case. Thanks for the help though.
