Spritesheet loading error since update to 5.2.3


Recommended Posts


I just updated pixi.js in my project from 5.2.1 to 5.2.4, and am now encountering the following issue when attempting to load a spritesheet JSON.

Line causing the issue:



Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'baseTexture' of null
    at new Spritesheet (spritesheet.es.js:60)
    at onImageLoad (spritesheet.es.js:403)
    at MiniSignal.dispatch (mini-signals.js:93)
    at eval (resource-loader.esm.js:2266)
    at next (resource-loader.esm.js:57)
    at Loader.use (spritesheet.es.js:380)
    at eval (resource-loader.esm.js:2264)
    at eval (resource-loader.esm.js:65)

It looks like the error comes from here: https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/blob/7b93fdba90b1ea54469621c30ff1d6b8849e514c/packages/spritesheet/src/Spritesheet.js#L63. Although texture seems to correctly be an instance of Texture, the check in https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/blob/7b93fdba90b1ea54469621c30ff1d6b8849e514c/packages/spritesheet/src/Spritesheet.js#L57 fails.

It looks like this change was introduced in 5.2.3 (https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/compare/v5.2.2...v5.2.3).

Anyone able to shed some light?

Two requests:

1. Could you please post all code errors to https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js that more helpful to track and resolve issues than forums.

2. We need a reproduction of your error (code that we can run, preferably jsfiddle, codepen, etc). We have examples and test cases that cover basic loading of spite sheets so without some code to run, this is difficult to diagnose.

Well, issue went away after deleting and reinstalling all packages (I use NPM). Apologies for the useless post, your requests were noted for future reference.


Yep, thats usual "npm juggling" we have in pixi when we update pixi :) Its not useless, now we know that the problem is still there
