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"

I think only Epic could answer that. I can't help you there but will bump your question in hopes it gets attention.

i managed to solve this problem although it was a strange solution but i noted that only materials with normal map attached to them and materials with only emissive parameter are showing so i attached a normal texture to all the materials and that solved the problem... thanks rimmyD for the help

i never received an answer from epic about the compatibility between marshmallow and unreal engine but regarding the black textures i found out that only materials with a normal texture attached to them are not showing in black so the solution was rather simple just attach an empty normal texture to all materials and that solved the problem and by empty i meant a pink texture similar to the one you usually see in normal maps..............
