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"

Load errors when creating a new project in 4.9

Whenever I create a brand new project I get this error: /Game/FirstPersonBP/Maps/FirstPersonExampleMap : Failed import for SkeletalMeshComponent /Game/FirstPersonBP/Blueprints/FirstPersonCharacter.FirstPersonCharacter_C:SkeletalMesh_GEN_VARIABLE

I restarted the editor and now I get that error plus this one:

/Game/FirstPersonBP/Maps/FirstPersonExampleMap : Failed import for SkeletalMeshComponent /Game/FirstPersonBP/Blueprints/FirstPersonCharacter.FirstPersonCharacter_C:SkeletalMeshComponent_8_FC42DFE8

I think this is a bug report, but since it points at the Blueprints folder, I chose this Blueprints section.

I don't know if it's causing bigger problems. But so far I can't use any keyboard actions.

Hi makhras,

In the Unreal Engine Launcher, in the Library tab navigate to the 4.9 version of the launcher and in the dropdown menu (the arrow beside the Launch buttone) select Verify. This will check for and reinstall any directories that have been misplaced or otherwise become corrupt.

Try this first and let me know if it resolves the issue.

Thanks

Dear Steve, I have exactly the same problem, and running the Verify did not help. I get the same error message the first (create) and the second time I start the project:

 Error /Game/FirstPersonBP/Maps/FirstPersonExampleMap : Failed import for SkeletalMeshComponent /Game/FirstPersonBP/Blueprints/FirstPersonCharacter.FirstPersonCharacter_C:SkeletalMesh_GEN_VARIABLE

I can run and shoot though.

the same error appears to me. Has anyone found a solution?

In additon to uninstalling UE4 using "Uninstall a Progam" from the Control Panel, can you verify that you also deleted the 4.9 directory: typically C:\Program Files\Unreal Engine\4.9. Otherwise during the reinstall process the installer will skip over existing/corrupt files.

*In order to avoid further confusion, I erased some troubleshooting steps posted earlier that included reinstalling the engine before it was understood where the problem originated and that it had been reported as JIRA [UE-20712]. Doing so inadvertantly erased a few users comments that were linked to those steps.

Sorry for the inconvenience and feel free to repost if your comment was deleted.

Reinstalled, Made sure folder was deleted, and still get the error on 4.9 FPS Template. validate data shows no issues.

Error /Game/FirstPersonBP/Maps/FirstPersonExampleMap : Failed import for SkeletalMeshComponent /Game/FirstPersonBP/Blueprints/FirstPersonCharacter.FirstPersonCharacter_C:SkeletalMesh_GEN_VARIABLE

*that was to say reinstalling the engine would not fix this issue. This has been fixed in UE 4.10

Seems the only work around that I am aware of that I made up myself, is to create a 4.8 project and convert to 4.9.2 not sure that is really best way, but at least error when loading it up is not there
