|0025761||1.4 IDE Bugs||Preferences||Public||2017-02-22 16:55||2018-02-05 16:28|
|Priority||Very High||Severity||B - Major||Reproducibility||100%|
|Summary||0025761: Preferences: Temp and Cache directory fields need to fix paths with a trailing slash, otherwise asset compiler error|
|Description||The Temp and/or Cache directory options in File->Preferences->General do not validate that the folders are provided in the correct format. As I would expect folders to be presented in folder format, I provided 'C:\This\Folder\' causing the compiler to use 'C:\This\Folder\\gm_ttt_000000\gm_ttt_000000'. Note the double slash empty name folder, which is an invalid folder name.|
Expected: I would expect the IDE to recognize that the expected format for folders is without a tailing slash, and remove that slash itself. Asking for folder "C:\This\Folder\" clearly means I'm wanting the game to compile at that folder location, and since the compile code expects this to be provided in a different format, just fix it. (I feel this is similar to '2/2/2010' translating to '02/02/10')
|Steps To Reproduce||1) Get to settings via: File -> Preferences -> General Tab -> Folder path options in bottom left.|
2) Set a folder path with the inclusion of a tailing slash.
3) Select "OK"
4) Attempt to compile current game.
