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"

Fire Lighting disappears with Particle System

I was playing arround with UE4 and i created a dark enviroment with rooms and stuff. In one of the rooms i placed a fire but i came across with this bug:

I made a video because it was hard for me to explain. Camtasia decided to make the quality similar to a potato but i thing you get the idea.

Note: It does the same with any fire

You need to increase the bounds of your particle system.

To add to what Jacky is saying which is absolutely correct - I would recommend since the fire is your primary light in that room to add a point light to the room as a fill.
