I did some digging and we have had reports from other users fixing this by restructuring content (being mindful of cyclical dependencies). Here is some advise by one of our developers on how to do this:
The general suggestions we make to
clean up dependencies are usually to
use interfaces and event-dispatchers.
Using dispatchers usually makes your
dependencies one way, and interfaces
let you obfuscate dependencies on a
Blueprint that may bring in a handful
of unrelated dependencies.
If you still can’t fix the issue, we will need some more info. What exactly are you doing when the variables reset? Do you have a small test project or a stripped down version of the project that has the issue?
I have a blueprint called spell (Actor Bp). In this blueprints i have some functions and variables defined. As a child, i have “buffs”. This buff bp has some extra variables and functions . Whenever i want to create a new spell or buff, i make a child of one of these. And i set the variables in this child acording to what is needed and also some events.
This child’s variables,gets reseted back to deafult sometimes, i really don’t know when.
One thing i could do to solve this, is create a big struct and move all variables there. Then i would use datatables to save the variables, but i am not sure if it is a good idea, cuz the struct will contain a lot, like 50 variables or so.
The other thing is using the construct scrypt to set all the variables instead of the variable’s tab in the editor.
