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"

Deferred decal will not work on Unlit material.

I've created a decal material that correctly renders on a Default Lit material. However, it does not render on an Unlit material. I can't think of a reason why this wouldn't work, so I'm guessing it's a bug. All of my materials are unlit in my stylized game, and it seems brutal that I can't use decals at all.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

I have the same issue on a Transparent material. It is not rendered at all.

Testing further... The decal visibility is coupled with the Rendering properties of the object where the decal is projected on.

I tried to set the flag "Hidden in game" and decals are no more working

Hi lucabelluccini,

Could you post this as a new report in the Rendering section? Make sure to include screenshots of your setup and the results that you're getting.

Hi Litruv,

Hello TJ, don't mean to be too annoying or anything but I'm having this issue on 4.8. It would be great if you could take a look into this again!

Here's my question

I'm working in 4.8 and its still not fixed. Is there something you have to do to get the decal to work properly?

Hi TorQueMoD,

Basically just the steps that the OP mentioned in the original report. If you still aren't able to get this working, feel free to post screenshots and a description of your setup.
