Hello, I’m an experienced C# programmer new to Godot, I just installed Godot and the new .net 5.0
I am running into a strange error while testing some sample projects.
The “pong” sample use a System.Random to bounce the ball, it compile fine but crashes with the error bellow when doing a “new Random()” :
E 0:00:00.917 debug_send_unhandled_exception_error: System.TypeLoadException: Could not resolve type with token 01000010 from typeref (expected class 'System.Random' in assembly 'System.Runtime, Version=126.96.36.199, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a')
<Erreur C++> Unhandled exception
<Source C++> modules/mono/mono_gd/gd_mono_utils.cpp:424 @ debug_send_unhandled_exception_error()
- I tested Random in a console App in case there is an issue with my setup and it works as expected.
- inside Godot, I also tested some other System.Runtime.dll classes to see if everything in System.Runtime.dll would make it crash, but I could instantiate URI, use Math etc inside Godot without issue.
It’s only the Random class inside Godot that is causing a crash so far.
Is Godot doing something special there ? did anyone ever had an issue like this ? I could not find anything helpful. I could work around that with another random library; I don’t even know if my first project will need any random at all, but this is really strange.
I have run into this exact same issue. Would be interested to know if anyone has managed to solve this or found a work around? The inbuilt Godot random number generator works for me in the meantime but I was hoping to reuse my code in other none Godot related projects.

I did not solve this, I just don’t use System.Random.
I was worried that it would happen for other things but it is the only class that caused an issue so far. I was not aware that Godot have its own RNG You could fallback to preprocessor directives for crossengine dev.
