Module Recompile command crashes

The Module Recompile command causes an engine crash whereas recompiling from the “Modules” developer window works as expected. This seems to be caused by the GIsHotReload boolean not being set by the code path executed by Module Recompile vs. the “Recompile” button callback.

The want for this functionality is to bind the Module Recompile command instead of having to constantly go back and click the “Recompile” button. I don’t have a whole lot of time at the moment, but Ill see if I can make and submit a fix.

Hey kf-

What exactly do you mean by the Module Recompile command? Are you referring to a specific button or option in the editor? If so, where are you choosing this option? Can you provide the callstack and log files from the crash for additional information as to what my be causing the crash as well?


Hi kf,

We have not heard back from you in a few days, so we are marking this post as Resolved for tracking purposes. If you are still experiencing the issue you reported, please respond to this message with additional information and we will offer further assistance.

Thank you.

Actually I am facing the same issue. When you hit the recompile button in the Module Window for let’s say TestPlugin then things work as expected. However if you type the command “module recompile TestPlugin” in the Output window command line the Engine crashes at check(GIsHotReload) assertion.

Hey darkZ-

Can you provide any reproduction steps to show how you’re getting/testing this crash? Also, can you provide the callstack and log files from the crash for additional information?
