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"

4.9.2 Unresolved compiler error in FirstPersonCharacter when deleting gun and arms

I'm trying to use UE for architectural visualization and to do that I need to remove the gun and arms on the character in the First Person Template File. In previous version I could accomplish this by simply editing the blueprint of the character and deleting the attached meshes. Now when I try that and press 'Play,' I get this error:

 One or more blueprints has an unresolved compiler error, are you sure you want to Play in Editor? FirstPersonCharacter

Any Ideas on how to delete the arms and gun so that I can walk around a space that I'm importing?

Thanks in advanced.

Product Version: UE 4.9

Have you tried just setting the Mesh2P and FP_Gun back to default by clicking the yellow arrow next to the Skeletal Mesh dropdown when you have either selected in the FirstPersonCharacter Blueprint? This will remove the arms and the gun, and didn't give me any compiler errors.

Here is an image of what option I am referring to: alt text
