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"

hide 'rebuild lighting' message in game?


when I play the game without the editor (uproject right click 'launch') I still get this annoying message when I move certain objects. there are some movable items in my scene which can be picked up by the player, however, the lighting on them is built as if they were static (because non-static-lit objects don't look very good). so when I pick them up in-game the message pops up to rebuild lighting; until I place the object back where it used to be and then the message disappears (basically you can pick up an object and then put it back where you got it from if you wanted to.

how can I make this disappear? clearly that's not something you'd want showing in-game.

Hi HSbF6,

You can setup in your Level BP an Execute Console Command node at your Event Begin Play and then use the console command "DISABLEALLSCREENMESSAGES"

When you use this any messages like the rebuild lighting message.

I hope this helps.

hi tim, is there a way of hiding only lighting screen messages as we need some of the other ones for gameplay and debugging?

If you don't need the Lightmaps during the test, you can disable the use of Lightmaps and disable message about Lightmaps. After set Enable for Force No Precompute Lightning, press Build.

hi there! thanks for the reply.

what do you mean by 'dont need lightmaps'?
of course I need all the light maps; that's why I'm building static lighting on all these movable items in the first place like I said.

or maybe I didn't understand your answer ?

Since Unreal Engine 4.7, there has been a more simple answer to this question. To disable all screen messages, you must simply open up the Console (you can do this using the ` key) and type in "DisableAllScreenMessages" and it should go away. Hope this helps!

hi, this does not help ,as for me the screen messages are essential for some parts of game and debugging. I need a selective disable lighting messages only. This HAS to be in the editor somewhere,

I too have the same problem. Did you manage to find a way to selectively only disable lighting related message?
