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"

Hi Mountains,

Did you convert this project from another engine version or was this project created in 4.9? Does this occur in a clean, blank project with no additional content or is it limited to one project? Have you already updated to 4.9.1 or are you on 4.9.0?

Hello Adam, thanks a lot for your answer, actually this project is from another engine version, first was on 4.7 then 4.8 then 4.9 and now 4.9.1

It does not occur in a clean blank project with no additional content, and if i remove all files from saved direcotry the error fixes but then im unable to package and a lot of new "can't find file for asset" errors shows up, please check my other post: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/308684/49-package-failed-after-renaming-project.html

Actually im able to package the game with the first loadup errors, but everytime i save a map on the editor a warning message shows up saying that the map has external references that will be broken ingame, but the game works even with these errors.

Touching the files i realized that to easily reproduce this you need to open /saved/config/windows/engine.cfg and change the project content path, in fact and this is the wierd thing at this cfg my path is pointing to a backup dir instead of the actual project content dir, and if i change it to to actual project dir, then the packaging errors come out and its impossible to build/play the game

Thanks in advance!

Hi Mountains,

Can you send me a copy of your project along with the steps you are taking to reproduce this on your end? I'll be happy to take a look and see if I can reproduce the error.

Hello, you need to manually remove all affected assets then copy them back to the project, or you can full rebuild the project and ignore the startup errors. Seems that this bug happen when you use the option "convert in place" from a older version project instead of "open a copy" when updating version, also i recommend to keep the project and the engine always at the same hard disk drive.
