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"

Unable to open project editor when building from "master" branch

Hello Everybody,

The long winded version of this question can be found here. Essentially, I can build the "master" branch error free and build projects created using the "master" branch without any errors, except I am unable to open the project editor and I get a log file full of errors which I don't understand. The log file can be found in the folder here.

Can anybody explain to me what the errors in the log file mean?

I have run into this same problem on multiple builds so help is greatly appreciated,

This is an internal editor crash accessing a resource for the startup tutorial. We'll have to figure out why it is crashing here. In the mean time I suggest you try this to work around it:

Navigate to your engine install directory and find \Engine\Config\BaseEditorSettings.ini. Then delete the line under

[/Script/IntroTutorials.EditorTutorialSettings]

that says

+StartupTutorial=/Engine/Tutorial/Basics/LevelEditorAttract.LevelEditorAttract_C

Save the file and start the editor.

Let us know if that works around the problem for now

Hey Farshooter-

Since the master branch is constantly being updated it is possible that re-downloading the branch version may fix the problem and allow you to open a compiled project. The GitHub master branch can contain build/compile issues as it is highly untested and development on this branch is not recommended. Let us know if you have similar issues using other GitHub branches.

Cheers

Hello @Doug Wilson,

Thank you for the response. I understand that the master branch is the most experimental and therefore the most unstable. The reason I am targeting the master branch is because I want to make an engine modification.

I think the problem I am having might have something to do with my local setup. I have tried updating the master branch and recompiling three times and the exact same error appears.

Do you have any advice on debugging the problem so that I can get started fixing it?

Hey Farshooter-

I did no receive the same error message that you posted however I am running into problems opening a project in the current master branch build. I've entered a report for this (UE-20603) for further investigation.

Cheers
