Rumors can't initialize in custom quest, 0.10.25

Post by Jay_H »

Finishing a custom quest; when I started asking for rumors for a necessary quest element, the townspeople gave no answer at all, totally blank. I looked in the player log and found this: (available on Pastebin)

Code: Select all

AddDialogLinkForQuestInfoResource() could not find quest with questID 33561415 
(Filename: ./Runtime/Export/Debug/Debug.bindings.h Line: 35)

Exiting DFU and loading the save game again made the rumors proceed as normal. Here's the quest file, if it's relevant: https://pastebin.com/0SyYNegt
Farewell DFU community! My time here has been a joy.

Re: Custom quest support

I don't have an answer right now, would mind if I split this one into its own bug report for follow-up later?
