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"

Is this a particle system from the starter content?
IF so dragging it onto your level should start right up. Is this another particle system?

The gray square texture means that your material assigned to the particles was not found (or sometimes it means it isn't compiled yet). Open Cascade (the FX editor), select the "required" module within your module stack, and within the details panel find the top option for "material." Make sure there is a valid material assigned here, and if not, assign one by selecting it in the content browser and then pressing the arrow next to the material property box.

Sorry, I'd add a diagram but I'm not on a computer with Unreal installed at the moment.

Good luck!
