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"

No shadows in 4.12 since release

I've upgraded my project to 4.12, I was using the previews before the stable version was released, and now I have no shadows, like at all. I've tried enabling "Generate Mesh Distance Fields", and I've even built a few dummy projects from the example templates, but no matter what I do, I can't get one shadow out of it. I've got a GTX 970 in case that's helpful.

Product Version: UE 4.12

Make sure your Engine Scalability is set to EPIC. That would be the first thing to check.
