I just bought a new laptop and planned to move my game development onto the laptop. I put the game files onto a portable SSD and transferred them.

All the game files from the original folder seem to be there.

The issue now is that the game will randomly crash when I'm testing. I keep getting the same "Cannot set property 'x' of null" message but don't know what it means.

Has anyone else encountered this before? The game works perfectly fine on my desktop computer still. I'm not understanding what is missing or why it's crashing.

I've confirmed as well that the pixi-filters plugin is installed and in the same setting as with my desktop.

The issue only seems to occur every so often, so for some reason it's able to work just fine in a few cases. seems related to images but I'm kinda at a loss as to what is causing it.

Had the same "Cannot set property 'x' of null" error, but now after transfering games files to another PC, but when I reordered positions of plugins on plugin list. Check that.

Any "of null" error means that the engine is missing a data object that is referenced in game.

that type of error usually has nothing to do with the game files themselves, it is in most cases a configuration error.
there is a small chance that one of your files was damaged during transfer, resulting in false data inside.

other than that I can't think of a direct cause as long as you installed the programs correctly on the new computer.
You might want to change this to a general bughunt in case this is an error in the game itself instead of a problem of the new computer.

Thank you! I ended up figuring out how to solve the issue. Seems there was an update that somehow invalidated a few of my older plugins. After updating (and sadly removing two good ones), I’m happy to say I’m back up and running again!

Update: Coworker sabotaged the truck's mirrors by applying a threadlocking compound to the bolts used to adjust the mirrors. Now NO ONE can adjust them. So I filed a legit report of sabotage of equipment to leadership and declared that I cannot safely operate the vehicle if I can't see what needs to be seen. So the truck has to go to the shop for repair, and we need a substitute vehicle. Nice work, dude :p
