What is wrong?
Are you running some editor scripts in the project? Does this happen in a new project?
Yes, we have some libraries from assetstore. It happens to existing projects.
So it sounds like one of your editor scripts is changing the editor GUI style or color and not reseting it back. Try removing each editor library you have until the issue fixes itself and you identify the problem package. Then you can either fix it yourself or contact the asset provider and report the bug. Did this problem just start happening, e.g a unity version upgrade?
Problem is with Steamworks.NET editor script. But why react Unity red see?
Hey, creator of Steamworks.NET here, that's weird, we definitely don't change the editor GUI to the best of my knowledge.
The only two editor scripts we have are these two and they are both pretty trivial.
What version of Unity is this?
I've seen Unity 5.60b5 turn all GUI text red like this with a different plugin which also isn't setting GUI style of color anywhere.
The issue only reproduces sometimes, but I've been able to trigger it by, for example, throwing an exception in a static initializer for an `[InitializeOnLoad]` script. Although most of the time I just see an error message in the console (as expected), other times all the test turns red, and the console shows:
1. Two stack traces which look something like this:
System.Exception: Exception of type 'System.Exception' was thrown.
at InitializeOnLoadTestController.DoSomething () [0x00001] in /path/to/my/InitializeOnLoadTestController.cs:110
at InitializeOnLoadTestController..cctor () [0x00142] in /path/to/my/InitializeOnLoadTestController.cs:94
2. followed by a long list of exceptions reporting issues like:
Missing built-in guistyle ColorPickerBox
Missing built-in guistyle In BigTitle
Missing built-in guistyle miniLabel
Missing built-in guistyle LargeLabel
These look like this:
Missing built-in guistyle ColorPickerBox
UnityEditor.EditorUtilityisplayDialogComplex(String, String, String, String, String)
InitializeOnLoadTestControlleroSomething() (at Assets/InitializeOnLoadTestController.cs:110)
InitializeOnLoadTestController:.cctor() (at Assets/InitializeOnLoadTestController.cs:94)
I'm also getting this every few hours. It comes on in playmode sometimes. Only way to get rid of it is restart unity.
Same problem here since Unity 5.6.0f3
We have the same problem occasionally in 5.6.0f3. We noticed the bug did not go away even after a restart of unity unless we first cleared the console then restarted. We have many third party editor scripts. We never noticed this behavior in Unity 5.4.
Are any of you receiving a popup telling you that your Unity Editor is too old?
We are now using Unity 5.6.0p1 and we still notice the issue. The problem occurs even without a popup. I don't think we've ever noticed a popup either.
Unfortunately we don't really have any consistent way to reproduce it.
- Sometimes it happens when we press play,
- Sometimes it happens after starting the editor,
- Having the console clear at editor start does not always fix the problem. (We thought maybe a log's style was leaking into other GUI elements)
We do know that if we clear our console and then restart unity, the problem goes away, until it comes back.
Someone said that they noticed it disappear when they clear the console and restart. But if they do the same thing when the red text is gone, the red text will sometimes show on the next startup. Could just be speculation though.
Swap the color scheme. Professional Dark / Regular and back again. It fixes it temporarily.
We have the same problem. The error occurred after the update to the Unity 5.6.0f3.
We cannot swap the color scheme because have personal version.
Also seeing this weird red text now and again since v5.6
Screws up fonts and color, and can't select anything in the scene hierarchy.
Seems to appear more when I get a 'scene has changed' message and reload it.
Any news here?
I have the same error in my project. I'm running Unity 5.6.0f3 Personal with the SteamVR plugin and the HTC Vive connected, and I dont' know how to avoid it. It is bothering me a lot because it appears almost every time I push play. When it happens, the only thing I can do is close it and restart the editor.
I cannot swape the color scheme (or I don't know how to do it) and I don't want to install the 2017 beta.
I've gotten this error as well, and I don't have any UI scripts running. (I'm not even using any code I didn't write myself, and all of that is fairly simple since I started the project yesterday.) The first time I ran into this error, I was testing for the first time a script which spawns low-poly asteroids in the background and moves them contrary to the player's movement. This seems unlikely to be part of the problem though, I figure it's probably something that I'm unaware of that caused it.
I've had this happen several times in the last couple of months on different projects, none of which were using any 3rd party tools. Its really random, I haven't been able to find any kind of pattern or cause.
This issue should be fixed in 2017.1.0b4 and 2017.2.0a1.
The fix for 5.6 is coming in one of the next patch releases.
I use 5.6.1f1 and still having these errors. Is there an external fix that i'm not aware of?
Are you guys still having issues?
I'm on 5.6.0f3 and also having exact issue.
