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"

Juxt4posed,

Did you try deleting your Intermediate and Saved folders? Have you attempted what Numsi550 has suggested?

1 answer: sort voted first

When I have these unknowCookFailure errors I try several things:

  1. try to run the Fixup redirectors in folder (in the content browser right click the content folder and choose Fixup redirectors In Folder ).

  2. Make sure that all the files that are in your project are not read only.

  3. Make new project (if you are developing a FPS project, make new FPS project). And then copy all the files from your project (**E:\Unreal projects\norwichgame\Content**) to the new project's content folder

  4. If the first 3 things fail, then Duplicate the whole project (in Windows Explorer), and rename the folder and the .uproject name to match (Currently your project is called E:\Unreal projects\norwichgame\norwichgame.uproject, so you need to rename your copy of the same project something like this E:\Unreal projects\NEWnorwichgame\NEWnorwichgame.uproject, just make sure to change the name of the .uproject name to be the same as the folder which that file is in.)

Hope this helps you.

am now attempting them steps, will let you know

didn't work, still getting cook failure

avatar image numsi550 Dec 20 '16 at 10:25 PM

I forgot one more: If you have substance plugin enabled, sometimes this causes the cook failure. Try disabling the substance plugin and cook it again.

If that doesn't help then try to package the project, with the use pack file option UNchecked. This will package the project without placing all the assets in content folder in one .pak file. https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Basics/Projects/Packaging/index.html#advancedsettings
