Interesting. Do you have the “Scripts are strict by default” beta feature enabled? Does your script have type-checking enabled? If not, this is a bug that I’ve never seen before.

Otherwise, disabling that feature should fix the issue for you. Certain snippets of code cause type checking to crash studio for some reason.

I dont have any beta features enabled and type-checking is disabled

I’ve also heard reports that if your module has any odd tables in it, Roblox might persist to crash in specific snippets of code, even without type-checking. This might be due to the type-checking function running in the background. Do the crash logs say something like “StartProcessException…” and then studio crashes?

Do you still experience this issue?
We’ve updated a few things that fix issues in this area in the new Studio release, but if it still happens, we would like to know.
