Ghost states
« on: June 10, 2018, 02:09:29 PM »
Hi.

I was having an issue with the event contextual menu displaying the state one instead. While reporting it in detail I realize some states have been cloned and selecting the new one also select the other.


This is actually two superposed states.

I can select the original but selecting the ghost will select both (some with modifications). In some cases I can delete it and in others doing so will break some connections.

I don't have a screenshot at the moment as I reimported the template I was working on from a clean project. I'll send one when I encountered the issue again (not the first time it happened).

Thanks.

Here is a screenshot of the same example from an other computer.

Hi.
You are probably using Collaborate.

Collaborate is still very unstable and has many issues with Playmaker and other assets.

See this post

This mainly happens when 2 people work on the same scene simultaneously

I would suggest to use github instead.

Yes I am using collaborate. Now that I know where the issue is coming from I can avoid it.  :D

Thanks djaydino

Hi.
Happy to help.

To bad to know that the issue is still there :(

The concept is very good and easier to setup than github (especially for my clients), but these kind of bugs are to crucial to take the risk for me :(
