Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Swarm distribution on 4.5 not connecting to other agents

Hello all,

We've been trying to string artist machines together to make out own little render farm on 4.5.

Here's our settings for my own machine (which also serves as the coordinator) and the remote machines:

When we kick off a build, the local machine will build just fine, but the log spits out this message:

11:13:53 AM: LogGenericPlatformMisc:Warning: Failed to determine engine directory: Defaulting to ../../../Engine/ 11:13:53 AM: Failed to determine engine directory: Defaulting to ../../../Engine/

I did some research on this, and it seems Lightmass used to have an issue where a database file was missing. See that thread here: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/52487/cluster-plublem-with-swarm-agent-and-two-pc.html

Do we need to continue taking the patch route, or is there a way to get this to work natively on 4.5?

Our issue was solved by disabling the Windows firewall and copying the UnrealLightmass.pdb file from the above thread to the proper folder. Strange!
