The FlipbookLayout property on all ParticleEmitters in Workspace tend to randomly get reset, either on publish or during a Studio session. This has happened on 2 separate games with different development teams. Unfortunately, due to the randomness of the bug, I’ve been unable to replicate it. This bug started appearing a month ago. I have reason to believe this has nothing to do with Plugins. I also believe this is related to Team Create. If I have any more info I’ll provide it here.
This continues to happen from separate users in different sessions which very much likely rules out plugins. It’s very frustrating!
This has been happening to me too. It’s difficult to say what the source of the problem is, but clearly, FlipbookLayout does not load correctly sometimes when the particle is a descendant of Workspace. Very frustrating bug that requires a manual fix every time, and doesn’t happen consistently enough to find the source of.
Specifically, this has been observed a few times in these places:
We can privately provide a place file to an engineer if desired. Similar to what OP said, I think it’s Team Create related, as it seems to only happen when a new TC session is opened if there aren’t any currently (as in, no other users editing the place).
This issue is also present in World//Zero:
We have a “Database” model that we publish that lives in a separate place, and when publishing the model, sometimes the ParticleEmitters with FlipbookLayout get set to none.
The place is also a Team Create session.
I’ve observed similar behavior recently with ImageRectSize and ImageRectOffset on ImageLabels. It randomly started happening around the same time the particle flipbook bug first came up without touching any of the code we use to interface with those properties. I can’t get a consistent reproduction of the issue, but it seems to be consistent across a play session when it does come up.
I also have Team Create disabled for this place and it still seems to happen.
Wait, really? I knew I wasn’t crazy!
Can this be fixed? Constantly having to fix flipbooks and some I cannot even find anymore. It’s like a game of cat and mouse.
Inferno Cat bump. We’ve fixed soo many of these flipbooks resetting randomly. We have to do this every time we publish a place update. They still reset periodically.
Hi all, apologies for the inconvenience. We have a possible fix in progress which (if all goes well) should be in next week’s release. I’ll post another update when that’s done.
just why does this keep happening, happened to me today from opening up my experience…
Hey, any news on this? Flipbooks in workspace still seem to break. Thank you!
Still waiting on this week’s release. Will let you know once it’s out.
Hi all, we’ve pushed the possible fix. You may need to restart Studio to pick up the changes. Please let us know if you’re still experiencing the issue.
