Error: godot warning treated as error

What's Causing This Error

The error message "godot warning treated as error" indicates that the Godot game engine is configured to treat warnings as errors, which prevents the game from running or compiling even when only warnings are present. This can happen due to several reasons:

  1. Project Settings: The project settings might have been set to treat warnings as errors. This could be intentional for enforcing code quality standards or could have been enabled by accident.
  2. Editor Settings: Similarly, the editor settings may also have an option to treat warnings as errors. If this setting is enabled, it will affect all projects opened with that editor instance.
  3. Scripting Language Features: Certain scripting languages, like GDScript in Godot, have annotations or pragmas that can change the behavior of the compiler or interpreter regarding warnings and errors.
  4. Custom Build Modules: If you're using custom modules or build scripts, they might contain configurations that alter the default Godot behavior to treat warnings as errors.

Solution - Here's How To Resolve It

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

  1. Adjust Project Settings:

    • Open your project in Godot.
    • Navigate to Project > Project Settings > General.
    • Search for the warning settings and find any options that might convert warnings to errors.
    • Uncheck or adjust these settings to allow warnings to remain as non-fatal messages.
  2. Modify Editor Settings:

    • In the Godot editor, go to Editor > Editor Settings.
    • Look for any settings related to warnings and errors within the debugging or script section.
    • Make sure the setting for treating warnings as errors is disabled.
  3. Inspect Code Annotations:

    • Review your scripts for any annotations or pragmas that might influence how warnings are handled.
    • Remove or comment out these annotations if they are causing warnings to be treated as errors.
  4. Check Custom Build Scripts/Modules:

    • If you have custom build scripts or modules, inspect their configuration files.
    • Look for flags or settings that might be enforcing strict warning policies.
    • Modify the scripts or configuration to stop treating warnings as errors.
  5. Consult Documentation & Community:

    • Review the latest documentation for any changes in how Godot handles warnings and errors.
    • Ask in Godot forums or communities in case the issue persists or if you’re unsure about a particular setting.

By following these steps, you should be able to configure Godot to stop treating warnings as errors and continue with development or gameplay.
