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"

lighting stuck at 75%

Hi my lighting refuses to build past 75% and swarm agent is giving me this error

11:24:26 PM: [Ping] Communication with the coordinator failed, job distribution will be disabled until the connection is established.

I have tried building the lighting in different projects and it works fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Product Version: UE 4.9

Hi MCMurray,

There was a known issue with precomputed lighting builds getting stuck in 4.9. This was resolved with 4.10.

The ping coordinator is a normal log output that happens and will show this when swarm coordinator is not used. It's not relevant to the lighting build getting stuck though.

Unfortunately, there are too many factors that could cause the lighting to build to get stuck to suggest something simple. For this reason it's better to update to 4.10.

Thank you!
