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"

Translucency stops working after lighting is rebuilt

Hello, I'm trying to make a TPP game, where the objects obscuring the character would become transparent.

I tried using this tutorial: http://gregmladucky.com/blog/?p=497

Since the tutorial is written for an older version of the engine, I had to make the following changes:

  • In the FadeMaterial, I chose "Surface Translucency Volume" instead of "TLM Surface" as Translucency Lighting Mode.

  • I used "EventBeginPlay" instead of "EventInitializeComponent" in BP_FadeComponent blueprint.

When I place objects in the game, it works fine:

alt text

But as soon as I build lighting, this happens: alt text

How the object looks when it doesn't obscure player for comparison: alt text

My question is: What could cause such behaviour and how can I fix it?
