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"

AddLocalRotation on SkeletalMeshComponent crashes editor

Hi guys. First of all, I am still new to both, UE and C++ programming, so I would assume there might be better ways of doing this (please do let me know if that is the case) The problem is that I have a Character class which has a reference to a Sekeletal Mesh Component (Exposed as a property in the editor) and whenever I apply a AddLocalRotation on the mesh it just crashes the editor. I'd appreciate if you could help me find out what my error is.

EDIT: I have used the IsValid method and it seems that the Mesh is null, however, I am setting the Mesh in the scene editor since it is exposed as a UPROPERTY. I am still not sure if there is something wrong with what I am doing or if I am supposed to set the Mesh in a different way to ensure it is not null when executing the code.

This is the crash log: LoginId:a9df9150408b737bb1336c9b018b8bf9 EpicAccountId:e8a03f309a104cb6be75d16a2c961c7c

Do you have a link to the code and a screenshot of the blueprint? Is it hard to tell from the callstack of the crash as that is just pointing us to something you already know, the Mesh is empty.

I don't anymore. It was pure C++ code, now I am using the Mesh property from the Character class I extended from, I also have a blueprint now. I am still curious about what could cause that a SekeletalMeshComponent property set in the World Outliner to be null during the execution of an axis input bound method.

I am not a hundred percent sure about this but since I could not get an answer to this problem I will post my intuition as the reason for this issue. It seems that when I created an instance of my class (directly, no blueprint involved) in the editor, the mesh assigned to the Skeletal Mesh from it is somehow temporal. Being this the case, whenever I tried to rotate this mesh, and due to its temporal reference nature, a NPE was thrown, which of course crashes the editor.
