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"

Hotreload of not saved asset

I'm having problems when I'm forgetting to save asset before building it in VS. I made some changes in asset class (in header too if I remember correctly) but forgot to save existing blueprint (child of this class). After building in content browser I got another file with name HOTRELOADED_name_of_blueprint. I got in same situation before and tried to delete that new file. And then editor crashed. This is crashlog: link text

Last time I got this thing and reopened editor - it failed to load that blueprint and I wasn't able to see it in content browser (even though I could see it with windows explorer). But now I reopened editor and no such error. Maybe it's because I didn't save my blueprint after compiling and getting that extra hotreloaded item. Because last time I saved it. I'm using 4.7.3

Hey funbiscuit-

I am investigating the hot reload bug you mentioned and want to make sure I understand your problem correctly. You have a blueprint based on a code class and when you make edits to the class and then use the compile button in the editor, you end up with a duplicate of your blueprint after the hot reload, is that correct?

I don't click compile in editor. I click build solution (or project) in visual studio. Everything else is correct. And I get this only when my blueprint is not saved. If I save it, everything is fine

Hey funbiscuit-

We are currently investigating a variety of issues related to hotreloading and blueprints. Let us know if you're able to reproduce this in a blank project with no additional content. For now I have reported this and will continue testing on my end.

I experienced a similar issue to UE-21554, but the editor did not crash and I did not receive any error message.

  • I created a BlueprintType struct in C++, FMyStruct, with one property.

  • I made a variable of that type in a blueprint.

  • After I modified the struct, e.g. adding a new property, and recompiled from the editor, the variable's type was renamed to "HOTRELOADED ASSETNAME 0"

  • The original ASSETNAME, e.g. My Struct, will be available to choose from

To remove the HOTRELOADED ASSETNAME 0 from the list, I closed the editor and reopened the project.

  • Project Template: Basic Code

  • Unreal Engine 4.21 (Launcher Version)

  • Visual Studio Community 15.9.3

Epic has agreed this is a bug now here:


I recommend everyone vote for the issue so it might get raised to a higher prio!
