Constantly updating the Actions window
« on: August 24, 2019, 04:36:48 AM »
Hi, I recently encountered such a "bug", I will show it on the GIF below:



Because of the constantly appearing inscription Updating usases... to select something in the window of actions.
What can be done about this?
I use unity 2018.3.14f1 and playmaker 1.9.0.p15

Strange. I haven't seen this before.
Does it stop if you re-boot Unity?

Can you open PlayMaker Editor > Preferences > Experimental
and check that Error Check Timeslice is 100 and Action Usage Timeslice is 50.

You could try raising these numbers. E.g., make Action Usage Timeslice 200.

If that doesn't work, you could turn off "Auto Refresh Action Usage" in the Action Browser settings (the small gear in the top right corner).

In the next update, the progress bar is on the same line as the search field, to avoid the list jumping up and down when updating. But I'd still like to figure out why this is happening...

No, this does not stop if you restart the Unity.
The meanings of Error Check Timeslice and Action Usage Timeslice were equal:100 and 50.
I raised these numbers to different values, but it did not work.
Yes, after turning off Auto Refresh Action Usage this indicator disappeared.
I also performed the Restore Default Settings, but this also did not work.
If you simply open the actions window, there will be nothing, but as soon as I select an object with a playmaker fsm in the hierarchy tab and at the same time open the tab of the playmaker editor, then the actions starts to jump in the window.
In my project, there are several objects with a fsm playmaker and they all contain quite a lot of states.
