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"

Moved files around in windows explorer now project file references are broken.

I was trying to clean up my project content file hierarchy so I utilized windows explorer to move the files around. Now when I open UE4 it can't find any of the materials so nothing has textures. When I go to try to manually re-place the textures and double click on one the icon disappears.

For example, I had a bunch of material functions. They're nowhere to be found now. All I see now are uasset files smaller than 1kb in windows explorer; nothing in UE4.

I messed up! Is there anything I can do to fix this? Thank you!

can you retrace your steps, moving the files back manually? some operating systems make automatic restore points for problems like this. maybe you have a system restore point that is near the time you broke everything.
