Yes the player is still in the core prefab. The message that the playercontroller is missing comes at the end after the scene is loaded and saved when the script tries to enable it again. Theres is no persisten object or saving prefab in the hierarchy in any scene when the game isnt loading. But after checking the console a bit closer with print statements I can see that the scene is loaded many times that’s why the UI flickers. Before the code that enables the new playerController is runned, the scene is loaded and saved many times. The player is also not spawning inside any of the portals as the spawning point is outside of the portal, but maybe thats whats happening? Maybe something is wrong with the saving wrapper or saving system after introducing the new asset pack? I put in my script with the print statements and the console messages, i had to upload the console messages as images as i couldnt find a way to copy them directly.
I also see that after saving the debug log in the awake function in the fighter script prints out the names of the enemies in the first scene, scene 0. I have no enemies in the second scene, scene 1, so they should not be printed right? Maybe scene 0 and scene 1 is loaded many times? But from the print statements I can only see scene 1 loaded many times.
I also tried printing out the newPlayerController throughout the script and it is found many times as the scene is saved and loaded but right before it tries to enable it after, yield return fader.FadeIn(fadeInTime);, the newPlayerController is null.
after the scene has loaded i have 4 portals from the first scene, scene 0, under dont destroy on load in the next scene.
