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"

Why can't I build lighting?

Hi everyone.

I checked the log for the Swarm Agent and this is what I get:

9:53:35 PM: Starting up SwarmAgent ...

9:53:35 PM: ... registering SwarmAgent with remoting service

9:53:35 PM: ... registering SwarmAgent network channels

9:53:35 PM: ... initializing SwarmAgent

9:53:35 PM: ......... certificate check has failed

9:53:35 PM: ...... initializing cache

9:53:35 PM: ......... using cache folder 'C:/ProgramFiles/EpicGames/UnrealTournamentEditor/Engine/Saved/Swarm\SwarmCache'

9:53:35 PM: ......... recreating SwarmAgent cache staging area

9:53:35 PM: ...... initializing connection to SwarmCoordinator

9:53:35 PM: ......... using SwarmCoordinator on RENDER-01

9:53:37 PM: ......... SwarmCoordinator failed to be initialized

9:53:37 PM: ...... initializing local performance monitoring subsystem

9:53:38 PM: ... initialization successful, SwarmAgent now run

I've tried closing EVGA's PrecisionX software, but that fixes an unrelated problem with framerate and UI lag. I tried closing NZXT's CAM software hoping it would magically fix my issue like the PrecisionX fix did-nope. Creating a LightmassImportance volume doesn't change anything. Tried changing the Verbosity setting from "Informative" to "Verbose" and didn't fix my issue.

So I was just making my level, didn't have a lot in it. Nothing complicated, just started building a level. Place some BSP objects here and there, a couple lights with default settings, a trigger volume, then I build lighting only aaaaaaaand the entire editor freezes at the "Cleaning up" text with the orange bar all the way to 100%. I also tried opening a new level, completely blank and just put a Cube into the level, build lighting and froze at the same point.
