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"

Build/Packaging error on scene

Hi I am having a lot of problems exporting/packaging a realtime scene that I am working on.

When I build it seems that it can't find a lot of files though the files are there.

I have deleted the Saved and Intermediate folders as this has worked in the past on other scenes but it is not working here.

Any help would be appreciated

Hi WSimpson,

The following type of errors have been found in your log;

 MainFrameActions: Packaging (Windows (64-bit)): UE4Editor-Cmd: [2017.03.09-10.49.02:166][  0]LogInit:Display: LogPackageName:Error: DoesPackageExist: DoesPackageExist FAILED: '/Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_01_PhysicsAsset' is not a standard unreal filename or a long path name. Reason: Name may not contain the following characters:  

I'm not entirely sure how, but the asset file name appears to contain invalid characters (might be spaces, I can't tell for certain). I would rename the affected packages in the editor to not have any invalid characters.

The following assets are affected;

 '/Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_01_PhysicsAsset'
 '/Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_01_Skeleton'
 '/Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_02_PhysicsAsset'
 '/Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_02_Skeleton'
 '/Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_04_PhysicsAsset'
 '/Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_04_Skeleton'
 '/Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_inlet cell area_PhysicsAsset'
 '/Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_inlet cell area_Skeleton'

Hope that helps. Cheers,

As project.gheist stated, you need to fix the spaces within your animated geometry folder. Take the spaces out, add underscores instead, if you need something that resembles a space.

 /Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_01_PhysicsAsset
 /Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_01_Skeleton
 /Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_02_PhysicsAsset
 /Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_02_Skeleton
 /Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_04_PhysicsAsset
 /Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_Crane T Frame_04_Skeleton
 /Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_inlet cell area_PhysicsAsset
 /Game/Geometry_Animated/train_01_inlet cell area_Skeleton

Thanks, I am now having a problem when UE4 can't find the geo to rename. Am not at my machine right now but thanks for the answers.
