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"

Thank you for all the additional details. I've submitted UE-26765 for this particular issue to be looked into.

I'll update here once there has been a fix internally along with any additional details.

Thank you!

hi. Tim this issue fix it?


UE-26765 was disappeared in Known Issues list.

but 411 p8 still bug. :(

This has been marked as resolved internally and should be resolved once 4.12 releases. It was removed from 4.11 list because it's now been marked for 4.12 to have it's resolution. I've not yet been able to verify that this is fixed yet though. I'll have it verified probably tomorrow if I can get my build issues resolved. I'll post back once I've verified that I'm no longer seeing the issue.

Hi Ruthless,

What type of device are you using when you package?

Also, is this only happening on the device or in the editor as well?

Test device : iphone5 , iphone5s , iphone6

shadow broken device only. editor is good.

another test. I use Directional Light (Dynamic)

shadow was not broken. but very low performance. :(

and Test skeletalMesh(1part). shadow was not broken.

Using your settings and steps above I'm not able to see the same issue on the Iphone 5s that I have for testing. I've got just a very simple scene setup with two skeletal meshes (TutorialTPP) from the Engine Content folder.

Are you able to recreate this in a blank project with one of the sample assets from the editor/engine folder or any other templates that are provided with the engine? If so, would you mind uploading the project?

Thank you!

Edit: To answer your original question, there is no way that I'm aware of to disable self shadowing.

we test 4.11 peview. shadow broken only iphone6

Are you able to provide a sample project where that I can test? I've not been able to reproduce this yet, so perhaps there is something that I can look at here that will.

i can't.. sorry. :( I found same issue. https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/299641/ue4-49-cast-modulated-shadows-causes-flickering-on.html

I'll give this some additional testing, but I've not been able to reproduce this outside of other users seeing this in their projects. When I asked for a sample project, it can simply use the sample assets that Epic provides with the engine, it does not have to be custom content. If you cannot reproduce outside of your project this would explain why I'm seeing the results I am.

After I run the test in a bit I'll update your this afternoon on my findings and if I'm able to reproduce.

we test 3rd person example △EDIT

There was no problem when testing with a Stationary Directional Light?
