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"

Object not visible in game, but visible in editor

Hello guys,

so I have been working on this game and when I add any kind of mesh in my Player blueprint it's not visible when I press a play button but it is visible when I am in editor. I have unchecked 'Actor hidden in game' and checked 'Visible'

Hello,

  • Does this occur with a basic mesh, or only when using a mesh that you made yourself?

  • Can you reproduce this issue in a simplified test project?

  • If so, please provide a list of detailed repro steps.

  • Is the object only invisible when looked at by your camera?

  • If you add the mesh to a different blueprint, is it visible?

Could you please zip up that test project and provide me with a link to Dropbox so I can download it? I haven't been able to reproduce this on my end so I'd like to take a look at your settings.

It ended up as a 10Gb file when I zipped it so I will try to reduce that and upload it as soon as I can.

EDIT: Is it safe to delete Saved file in project file? It seem so take most of the space.

You can make a copy of the Saved and Intermediate files and store them elsewhere, and then delete those from the project. They typically contain quite a bit of data.

Ok, so I reduced it to about 1.5Gb and it will take about 7 hours to upload (63 kB/s upload speed) I will leave it uploading over night so I hope I will see you tomorrow. Thanks for your help.

That link doesn't seem to work for me, it just takes me to a sign in page. Could you please double-check that it is the correct link?

Okay, so after looking at the project, I'm able to see the flashlight after playing. I turn around and look up a bit, and it is floating in the air. Is this not what you are seeing?

Let me know how I can reproduce the issue that you are experiencing in your project.
