Instability on OS X

Lazlo Bonin (Lead Developer) 3 months ago updated 1 week ago 5

We noticed some instability / crashes on OSX. These are full editor crashes that bring up the error reporter, not console errors.

We believe it might be related to the Metal/OpenGL rendering of the editor GUI.

The best way for us to debug these hard crashes is the two log files that Unity generates for the editor:

  • Editor.log
  • Error.log

They can be found here:

macOS~/Library/Logs/Unity/Editor.log
WindowsC:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Unity\Editor\Editor.log

Sometimes, inside the logs, there seems to be no link to Peek or Ludiq at all. However, we're pretty sure something in our plugin is causing it. In those cases, if you see nothing Peek/Ludiq related, please submit the bug report to Unity. This is the best way for them to investigate and debug the internals of what's happening. Also, please link back to your Unity report here so we can follow up and look for consistency across them.

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience!

Unity Version:
Peek Version:

I have experienced quite a few times that dragging and dropping causes crashes

Confirmed

I'm continuing to investigate this, but please do comment and let me know which operation caused a crash for you, it might help me isolate the cause!

I was at first reluctant to uninstall Peek from my project. I did however, stop using its functionality, thinking that I would prevent Unity from crashing, but even without using any of Peek's features, Unity kept crashing. I know you asked for specific operations but I am guessing the opposite could be just as relevant

If ever you get a hard crash, please upload these files, otherwise we can't assist in fixing them.
