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"

Thanks for your responses.

This project is a while back when I had no clue about scripting or IT in general.

Thinking about it now, as an System Engineer apprentice, it must've been some kind of error in the script it could not compile. I had many errors which could not be compiled.

I just got this error message - my problem was that I accidentaly had opened the project twice. If that's not the problem, make sure your project folders and files have write-access and are not in use by other programs (virus scanner, cloud service software like Dropbox etc.)

This was also my problem too, opened it twice on accident and couldn't save my files, was driving me crazy until I read this.

Just to add: In the task manager (CTRL + SHIFT + ESC) make sure the "Unreal Engine" process is closed (-> End Task). Important: Look through the whole task manager processes list for "Unreal Engine" processes and end them.

For me, only one editor was open. I got the same error message and just deleted the data file of the map. Everything was working perfectly.

it happened to me when i just dragged the whole folder from my PC directly into the Editor, moving the assets to another folder in the editor might solve your problem.

I was only running one instance of ue4, but I found that the problem ceased as soon as I deleted the data file for my map. (I suggest you make a copy just in case.)

Also, I'm new to ue4 and just got started, so if anyone could find some resources for creating an FPS, that would be very helpful.

Thank you, Lucas

I got this issue when importing assets directly to a plugin's Content folder while in the editor! In order to prevent this, import your assets to your project's Content folder, and then drag them into your plugin's Content folder ;)
