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"

Building Errors: "Failed while running cook"

Hi all I am still a newbie when it comes to Unreal Engine. I am not sure what I did wrong but my simple level is failing when I try to build it. When I open it in the editor is fine, I can work end edit it. When I play (from the editor) is fine. When I try to build it using Package for windows it fails. I did not use any C++ or visual Studio yet. The engine is installed on C:\ My Project is on E:\ I have attached both log.txt and cook.txt

Hi xtruder,

your error appears to be an extremely large map file:

MainFrameActions: Packaging (Windows): UE4Editor-Cmd: [2014.06.05-20.52.57:629][ 0]LogWindows: FMemoryWriter does not support data larger than 2GB. Archive name: E:/Xtruder - Maya/Xtruder - Henfield Close/unreal/Content/Maps/henfieldClose6_1024.umap.

This is unusual, have you any idea what has bloated the map?

Hi Terence, thank you so much for spotting that line in the log. I totally missed it! What was happening was that I left an old file (henfieldClose6_1024.umap) in the same folder as the current one and it was trying to compile that as well. Once I deleted it everything went as espected :)

Thank you so much!
