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"

Cascade Duplicate and Share Emitter Breaks

When I duplicate and share emitter, I try to remove a module and replace it with a non-shared module. If I modify that value, it modifies the shared emitter even if the module is not shared. Is this intended?

If you are talking about GPU particles, then you hit an annoying bug. If you dup&share a gpu particle it for some reason messes up the share info even if you change stuff in modules. So for now its best to duplicate the emitter, and manually create shared modules.

If you are talking about mesh/cpu/beam/etc particles doing that,.. well that never occured to me.

Yeah GPU Particles. I suppose workarounds are ok for now. Epic, is this being tracked?
