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"

Trying to Package Project, Loads Wrong Map

Hi, i just tried to package my unreal project to see if it would work. I can package the project but when i try to start up the .exe that is in the Binaries/Win64 folder a new window appears that is completely black and the shuts down after a second or so.

I checked the log file and found this.

 [2014.04.16-08.42.55:155][  0]LogLinker:Warning: Can't find file '/Game/Maps/Example_Map'
 [2014.04.16-08.42.55:155][  0]LogUObjectGlobals:Warning: Failed to load '/Game/Maps/Example_Map': Can't find file '/Game/Maps/Example_Map'

I'm currently using the FPS template that comes with unreal engine 4, but i deleted the example map because i thought it was unnecessary to keep around. I also changed what the default map is in the Maps and Modes project settings to my level instead of the example map. Do you know if i missed something or did i mistake in deleting the example map?

If you look at the log, it says failed to load Examle_Map. Maybe double check if you did not hit "Set as default" after changing the default map?

Where is the "Set as default" you want me to check? I checked again under Project Settings / Maps & Modes and the Game Default as well as the Editor Startup map is my map.

Hello Solicio,

The "Set as Default" button is on the top row of buttons in the Editor/Project Settings. It saves each section of the Project Settings separately so make sure you're on the Maps & Modes section when you click on the Set as Default button.

If that does not work, try adding a map in named Example_Map and see if the game still closes out once you package it again.

I am also seeing this. I opened the new Memory Game, made a new map, and set that map in the 3 spots in project settings. But it always opens MemoryCardEntry. So I deleted MemoryCardEntry and re-cooked. Now it crashes, failing to locate MemoryCardEntry.

My crappy workaround was to name my level MemoryCardEntry.

I was running into this as well, but like he said; if you hit Set as Default while on the Maps & Modes page of the Project Settings menu, that'll fix it.
