I’m creating a class to hold game stat information (stuff like high score, fastest times, etc). I have a menu game type that holds a gameStat variable so that it can be accessed by Blueprints for the UI Widgets. When I play in editor the first time the menu loads, it can access the gameStat variable fine and all the information shows up in the Widget. If I play the game (Open Level) and then come back to the menu (also Open Level) I start getting BP errors LogScript:Warning: Accessed None ‘gameStats’. It seems the gameStats variable is not getting re-initialized when the game loads the menu again. I’m not sure why. This only happens in PIE. If I play as standalone it works as expected.
Here’s how the variable is defined.
TWeakObjectPtr<UGameStats> gameStats; // Contains information about past games including best times data.
Here’s how the menu class is constructed
AMenuGameMode::AMenuGameMode(const FObjectInitializer& ObjectInitializer)
// use our own player controller class PlayerControllerClass = AMyGamePlayerController::StaticClass(); // set some defaults difficulty = EGameDifficulty::Easy;
// setup the game stats object.
gameStats = ObjectInitializer.CreateDefaultSubobject<UGameStats>(this, TEXT(“GameStats”));
Any help appreciated.
