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"

Weird shadows


I've followed the Lighting Quick Start guide here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/LightingAndShadows/QuickStart/index.html

and tried to recreate the level. However the results I'm getting are very different from those pictured. My main issue is the shadows that are being produced. Here's the result:

What's causing this? I've followed the tutorial step by step and only changed the position of the various meshes since the metric system has changed since it was published.

Have a look at our Lighting Troubleshooting guide here: wiki.unrealengine.com/LightingTroubleshootingGuide

You should just need to adjust the lightmap resolution for the meshes in question.
