[Fixed] Crayta crashes when using search in shared dev session

Describe the bug:

If two players are in same dev session and one of them does not have access to game, but was invited via shared link (I’m not sure if this is really required, maybe if you have access and join via shared link, it would also reproduce), the search functionality makes Jenkins angry (Unreal Engine crash).

Note that this is about game-wide full-text search (the one with cntrl+shift+F), not in-script search or script-name search.

How do you cause this bug?

  • Join shared dev session via shared link
  • Try using all code search (cntrl+shift+f, then start typing)
  • Unreal will crash after couple of entered symbols

BTW I think I did click to send the logs at least once on those two crashes I had. So should be delivered somewhere

Also had this crash when I joined someone else’s editor

This happened while on one of my projects. After this incident, I cannot use the full search on that project at all. Neither does it work on copies of the project. It just crashes and quits all together.

Hey there!

Thank you for bringing this up! I have opened up a ticket so our internal team can investigate this issue further. I have also added the information you have all left as comments so they are aware of everything.

Hi @str , this is caused by having a script file (Lua or widget) that’s completely empty - in Stunt Cars this is playerScriptDriver. We’ll get this fixed in a future patch, and in the meantime you can workaround it by either deleting the script or adding some text in it (even just a space or a blank line).
