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"

Why is my Decal not displaying my selected material?

I'm using 4.1.0 on Win 8

I'm trying to apply a decal on my wall but it seems its impossible; selecting my material does not change the decal material (a default texture is displayed instead).

Have a look at this; http://puu.sh/8mJS9.jpg alt text

You can see the default table material being selected and yet it shows something else on the wall.

I tried different materials but it does not fix my problem. I tried loading reloading the map I tried changing visibility on-off I tried rotating and moving the decal box

Please help

You can't use a standard material as decal. You need to change Material Domain to Deferred Decal in your material.
