Hi, I don’t use dev-forum often so I’m probably writing this in a wrong category.
I was working on my first slot car in roblox studio and I found this issue…
My issue: editing ANY script results in an infinite number of lines being created resulting in a freeze, this only happens when I edit the script, not when I open it or sellect a part of it. It started happening today or yesterday. It happens in any new place that I create. The weird thing is that my output says “maximum event re-entrancy depth exceeded for instance.sourcechanged”, wich means there’s for an example a function that is calling itself. That ends in an infinite loop. But nothing like this is actually happening so I don’t know what could be the issue.
I wasn’t talking about that exact script. My issue is that I can’t edit scripts. Wich makes my whole roblox studio basicaly unusable. By this I mean that the issue happens everywhere, in every place, in every script, (it happens in every fresh new baseplate place that I create) I took a screen shot of that exact script just to demonstrate that it freezes when I do anything to it, I don’t even know what is that script supposed to do. Anyways thanks for help.
edit: I tried re-installing studio (didn’t help) the thing is actually generating these super long lines of some symbols, that’s probably why it’s so laggy. (I still have no idea what is going on and I don’t know how to fix it)
I believe there are better ways to check for this, you don’t even need to wait for the character.
I’ll provide an example below:
local Players = game:GetService('Players')
local Dead = script.Dead
local function PlayerAdded(Player)
local function CharacterAdded(Character)
local PlayerGui = Player:FindFirstChild('PlayerGui')
if not PlayerGui then return end
Dead:Clone().Parent = PlayerGui
-- If the player's character is added before the script runs
if Player.Character then
-- Get players that are in the game before the script runs
-- This code is just an example of how I would handle this.
local GetPlayers = Players:GetPlayers()
for i = 1, #GetPlayers do
local Player = GetPlayers[i]
You should consider to add a Humanoid.Died event as that will trigger once a player dies. CharacterAdded runs when the player’s character is added to workspace.
That’s possible, if you still have this problem, I suggest reinstalling studio, disabling studio plugins, clearing cache, restarting your computer. I still don’t know what could be causing this issue tho .
This happens with me also… I recently found another thing which crashes studio. Suppose you want to cut and paste some stuff from one Roblox file to another Roblox file. You copy the stuff from 2nd file. Now, if you paste that stuff in 1st file after closing the 2nd file, it hangs forever. It seems that it keeps waiting for the source which now doesn’t exist.
