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"

Can't run my server

I packaged my game and tried to run the server and I get error messages and the application crashes.

The log: link text

Hey Althaen-

Does the crash occur when testing dedicated server inside the editor or only crash the packaged server? You can test this by checking the box for "Run Dedicated Server" in the dropdown list next to the Play button. If the crash doesn't occur in the editor, does the crash occur if you packaged a dedicated server of a new project?

I tried on a new project but I can't even get that to package for a different reason. It only crashes on the packaged server.

Looking at the logs provided, it seems to be failing when checking for a node added to a graph. This sounds to me like the server is trying to access something that is either client only or trying to reference something that hasn't been set.

Also, I noticed that you marked your post that you're using the master branch. Are you able to copy the project to a different engine version (such as the release branch) and package again?

That was my mistake I'm actually using the release branch.

I attempted to run the server exe in the unpacked project and I get this error: I think it may be connected?

What happens when you use "Run Dedicated Server" from within the editor? Can you provide the setup steps for your project? I have not been able to reproduce the behavior you've described on my end and want to ensure I'm following the same setup you're using.
