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"

[Bug] Rocket Won't Open

Version: 1711197

Install Path: C:\\users\\Markus\\Rocket\\

Specs: Win7, 16GB, GTX580, UAC: on

Description: This is a total showstopper bug. Using the July build, Rocket will not open at ALL. Using windows peek, it just shows the editor's maximize, minimize and cancel buttons and a collapsed Rocket window with no contents. It behaves like it's waiting for something to load, but it just hangs there. Left it open for 30 seconds to see if anything happens -- nothing.

alt text

Repro Steps: I'm not sure how I came across this problem. I built a new project "My Project" in the July build -- third person with code option. Closed rocket, generated using the batch file, rebuilt solution in MSVC++ 2012.

I thought about making a second project after opening the editor. So I selected "New Project" from the file menu, scrolled down and chose the third person with code option. Dialog opened after double clicking that option, prompting a file save for the uproject. I cancelled out of the file editor, because I decided not to make a second project after all.

I suspect the engine is hanging because it's looking for a project that I never actually created. I think at the point I double click on the project option, the engine updates the project bookmark to select for the next startup.

Can't help any further beyond that, because I honestly don't know what triggered this thing.

Results: Now seemingly after repro steps, the engine refuses to start. So I'm going to uninstall and reinstall rocket, and see if that gets me anywhere.

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Rocket still refused to load correctly.

But there is an upside to this :). I deleted the "Rocket Projects" folder and that seems to have kick started the editor into properly working again.

I think if you cancel out of a new project after double clicking on an option, Rocket updates the project marker to that new project anyways and thus hangs on a restart. Mucho bizarro.

Hi Markus,

The problem is most likely with the project file itself now. You will have to delete the .uproject file, then create a new project. If that does not work, please let me know.

Thank you,

Alexander

That's just it. I never saved the uproject file. I cancelled out of the file editor and decided against opening another project. Rocket refused to load after that. But I have an answer above that seems to have fixed the problem.

If anything, what people can do if they run into the same problem as me, is to store their working projects in a safe place, and then just purge the Rocket Projects directory. Then migrate the working projects back into the Rocket Projects directory again.
