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"

Shaders compile after every material alteration

Maybe this is not a bug, but it seems to me like one. When I am working in the material editor and for example change the value of a varible then the whole shader starts to compile even if I don't want him to, because I didn't finish my work. This goes on the whole time to every change I make he starts another compilation. It stacks and stacks up to over 7000 often and then I have to wait 30 minutes or so...

This thread is about the same I think: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/6511/bug-always-compiling-shaders.html

Hi Skullwing,

Can you provide your dxdiag as well as reproduction steps for us to further assist you? Thus far I have been unable to reproduce this on my end. Thank you!

Hi Skullwing,

Unfortunately I could not access the site, would you please upload the video to a .zip file and paste that here? Thank you!

You should be able to access it now ... it was password protected, but the password was listed above

I made it public now...

I am also uploading it in form of an .rar at the moment. I hope you don't need a .zip file.

Hi Skullwing,

Can you upload it to youtube? That may be a more efficient method. Thank you!

That will take some time...it's a 3.5 gb video, because of an error I can't encode it...

Hi Skullwing,

Unfortunately firedrive is not a designated website that we can access. We are more than willing to assist you further, however we will need the video to be uploaded to a website such as youtube or vimeo so that we can help you assess the problem. As soon as the video is up please let us know so we can watch it and see what may be going on. Thank you!

Interesting that you cannot access it, it's a standard website like youtube. However...
