Gdevelop freezes whole system on naming error!


#1

If I accidentally leave a space or forbidden character in an object name and/or use the same name twice - I get a warning saying I cannot do this and then the whole computer locks up completely and I have to do a hard reset to get it back. I am using GDevelop 5.0.0 Beta89 on Ubuntu 18.04.


#2

Not cool… It happens every once in a while or every time?
Is it only with b89? You can download a previous version here if you want to confirm, it will help the devs.


#3

It happens every time without fail. Is there any debug file I could send? Which earlier version would you recommend?


#4

Will try 88 and see if it does the same…


#5

I have tested this with version 88 and it has exactly the same issue - whole pc locks up if e.g. space in sprite name or if sprite name is already used… May only affect Ubuntu 18.04?


#6

Thanks for testing.
I can only say that the Windows GDevelop doesn’t suffer from this bug. :man_shrugging:
It could affect all linux distros, or only Ubuntu, or only your computer…
Let’s see if we get feedback from other linux users.

Cool - hopefully it’s only me :slight_smile: if so will try upgrading to 18.10 or 19.x
