Programable Block editor hangs [Hotfix 1.194.082]

Snottycat shared this bug 2 years ago
Duplicate

The programmable block editor is broken in Hotfix 1.194.082

1. Enter any Programmable Block and click on the Edit button to edit the code for the programmable block.

2. Clicking on any of the buttons in the editor will not have any effect. The buttons will remain in the highlighted state with no clicking sound heard. All buttons including the close (x) button have this issue.

3. The editor however still works (ie: you can change the text)

4. You cannot exit the editor as the buttons are not working, as is the ESC key press

5. Only way to recover is to close the game via Alt-F4


Did not experience this bug in the previous hotfix patch

Fellback to version 1.193 of the game and tried same steps. 1.193 did not have this issue

What other information do you require?

The bug is quite easy to repro on my system. The steps to repro are:

1. start any game (I was using star system) with No mods.

2. Build a Programmable Block and open its control panel. Click on the Edit button to enter the source code editor of the programmable block.

3. In the editor, you can still type any text within it, and it behaves normally. However, all the buttons won't function properly.

4. If you Left click on any of the 4 buttons at the bottom of the editor, you'll see the buttons go into their highlight state, and remain highlighted. No button click sound is heard. Even the [x] close button does not function. Pressing the ESC key to exit also does not work. Only Alt-F4 works

5. A workaround that I found to work is to press and hold the Right mouse button, and then Left click on the button.

6. I did not notice this behaviour prior to the hotfix, although others have reported this bug to occur in the earlier 1.194 builds

7. I did a fall back to v1.193, and repeated this test. The bug did not occur in v1.193


My hardware is a bit outdated:

Intel i5-2500K 3.30GHz / 16GB RAM / Win10 64bit / Nvidia GTX 1050Ti driver 26.21


Hope this helps

Hello!


Thank you for the reproduction steps. However I wasn't able to reproduce the issue, all buttons are clickable and functional for me. Can you please attach a save of your world here?


Thank you.

Doesn't seem to be 'save' related, at least not entirely. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't.

Was there any solved for this, i have the same problem. The only diference is that i can press ESC multiple times until i am finally out of the programable block. I started a new game to check and the issue persiste.

Also another programmable block bug keeps occurring.

1. The Programmable Block will keep prompting me that ownership has changed, and it needs to recompile. The programmable Block will not function until you re-compile.

2. Ownership of the Programmable block did not change since it was built (belongs to player).

3. This seems to occur very frequently, esp if you are adding new functional blocks to the grid. Ownership is not touched.

4. Other times I've also noticed it happening when the grid is connecting to another grid (although it may not be always the case)

5. Never encountered this issue in 1.193


Hope Keen can fix the programmable Block issues. For me this block is one of the main selling points of Space Engineers, to be able to program you own script to control your grid. Don't think that there's any current game with this feature, and it would be a shame to keep have problems with this block
