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"

Map duplication error

The problem: After duplicating an already existing level, the new one can't be saved because of this strange error.

alt text

It was a 4.13.1 - 4.14.P1 converted project, but I don't think that makes a difference.

Hello CrimsonHawk,

I was unable to reproduce this issue on our end. I have a few questions for you that will help narrow down what issue it is that you are experiencing.

Quick questions:

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a clean project?

  2. If so, could you provide a detailed list of steps to reproduce this issue on our end?

  3. Does this only happen in a project that has been upgraded?

It happens with clean project also, made in 4.14.P1. Steps are :

  1. New project

  2. Save level (NewMap)

  3. Duplicate map with Ctrl+W (NewMap2), and try to save project.

Then this message comes. If I press yes, it fails to do whatever it tries to do, and asks if I want to Retry, cancel or OK. Pressing Retry just loops the whole process.

If you are still experiencing this issue in the latest version of 4.14, you may be experiencing a different issue. Could you create a new thread with information on reproducing your issue in a clean project. You can the place the link in a reply here and someone can follow up.
