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"

Particles Rendering as Default Material when Standalone game

Currently on 4.8.3.

I'm using the particles from the shooter template in my project. They look and act fine when I run in viewport or a second window, but when the game is packaged or ran as a standalone game, they render as tjhe default material checkerboard squares instead.

I have attached a screenshot showing this.

The squares look black but if you look closely they are indeed the checkerboard material.

Is there a way to fix this?

Alright, I ended up fixing this.

What happened was that after migrating these from the shooter example project to my project, I moved them within my own directory for organization. This ended up breaking a lot of textures, but for whatever reason, it still retained that the textures were in the old directory location, so they worked fine unpackaged/standalone game. Closing and reopening the editor came up with a ton of error messages for it. Seems like Unreal did not auto update the locations for whatever reason as it normally does.
