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"

Built UE4Editor from github, failure compiling WorldGridMaterial.WorldGridMaterial


By following the README.md, I managed to compile UE4Editor from github using the master branch. The compile succeed but whenever I try to run UE4Editor, I get this error:

[Line: 1210] Failed to compile default material /Engine/EngineMaterials/WorldGridMaterial.WorldGridMaterial!

I debugged UE4Editor in VS2013 and attached the log output.

Is there an environment variable I need to set? There doesn't appear to be a /Engine/EngineMaterials path inside Content. Where is the WorldGridMaterial material located? There is a \Engine\Content\EngineMaterials\WorldGridMaterial.uasset but how does the ShaderCompiler reference it?

Thank you

Hey bensch128-

The master branch on GitHub is constantly being updated and has very little testing done on it. For this reason it is not recommended for development. Let us know if you have the same problem trying to run UE4 after downloading/compiling the release branch or 4.9 branch.

So you guys don't do any kind of continuous integration? I'm surprised.

Oh well, I'll try the release branch.

Hi Doug, I got release to build. I had to follow this answer to get it to build but it did eventually build. Thanks! Ben
