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"

"Generate chunks" = packaging fail

I was testing the generate chunks because I don't really like my pak file bigger than 2 gb, but if I try to package with any asset that inst on chunk 0 I get this error:

MainFrameActions: Packaging (Windows (32-bit)): Program.Main: AutomationTool exiting with ExitCode=25 (Error_UnknownCookFailure) MainFrameActions: Packaging (Windows (32-bit)): Domain_ProcessExit MainFrameActions: Packaging (Windows (32-bit)): copying UAT log files... MainFrameActions: Packaging (Windows (32-bit)): BUILD FAILED PackagingResults:Error: Error Unknown Cook Failure

I tested too on a empty project (first person template) and the error are the same. If I set the asset back to chunk 0 again the project packages with no problem.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Have you tried using Unreal Frontend?

Make sure that you're setting up the Chunk settings within Project Settings > Project > Packaging under Packaging. Here is an example of mine:

Example 1

Once that is set up like you want it to be for your project, go ahead and open the Project Launcher. Create a Custom Launch Profile and use the following screenshots as guided examples for you:

Example 2

Example 3

Please do not forget the quotes around your filepath, otherwise you'll run into a very vague error:


Once the packaging process is successful, it'll be nested in the Builds folder under the platform you've packaged for, which in my case was Windows and Android_ETC2.

I haven't used frontend because It looks like it wont generate a win32. I'll try setting the path and settings as you say and return soon

Tried to package using unrealfrontend but the problem persists.

I don’t really need streaming of chunks over the web. I just want to split my huge .pak file in 2 or 3 files. =(

The examples I provided before were for a guideline on how to get that to work. Now, I went ahead and adjusted my pak a bit and verified that this set up is currently working properly on my machine.

Example 1

Example 2

This packaged successfully and here is my result folder:

Example 3

Does this set up cause you any trouble? If so, please upload the full error output logs as a .txt file with your next reply.

I am stuck with this too. Tried packaging for win64 using chunks using the settings that were posted in the pictures. No luck.

Here's my log.

Please submit your question in a new thread on AnswerHub. Be sure to test in 4.13.1 and give us those results as well.
