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"

Emmisive materials not showing? (while playtesting in editor)

Hi, thanks for your help! :D

Emmisive materials don't seem to render properly when I test things out in the editor / launch the game. They are emmisive, though, and they are shown to be glowing when they're applied to a material anywhere else.

What setting could be causing this?

I'm not at home right now, so I can't at the moment, but I tried with various materials.

It happens with every emmisive material. I migrated some from the Content Examples that work fine if I render them in the content examples project, but the emission doesn't work in my game. Are there any files I could upload here that could help you guys help me? (XD)

Hey paragonx9,

If you are attempting to get the emissive property of your material really bright you need to multiply it by a constant value. Try this approach to see if you can get your emissive to shine a bit brighter!

Basic Emissive alt text

Multiplied Emissive alt text

Let me know if this worked for you, or if you need some more assistance.

I already did this, thanks. The glow doesn't show at all
