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"

Apparently, lighting channels are working differently on XboxOne than Win64.

I've prepared a very simple project to showcase the issue:


There is an empty map with 3 cubes and 3 dynamic point lights.

From left to right:

Cube1: Only Channel 1 set. Cube2: Only Channel 2 set. Cube3: Only Channel 0 set.

Light1: Red. Only Channel 1 set. Light2: Blue. Only Channel 2 set. Light3: Green. Only Channel 0 set.

At Win64 you see (From Left to right): Red cube, blue cube, green cube

On XBoxOne you see: All cubes are green!

Which means Channel 0 lights are always affecting 1 & 2. And Channel 1 & 2 light are ignored

Has anyone come across this issue?
