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"

Packaged VR has black screen


I have a VIVE project that runs on 4.15. The VR preview in editor is working fine. But the packaged ( win64 ) is only showing me a black screen. I did update from 4.15.1 to 4.15.2. And the last time I packaged in 4.15.1 everything worked fine.

Tested another project, works fine there.

Any idea what my cause this or how to solve it?

Hello MrMastermindNL,

Could you make sure that you have your default map setup correctly for the packaged game? You can find this setting in your project settings > Maps and Modes > Default Maps.

Hi Rudy, Thanks for your reply. The map setup is fine. I already packaged the project a few times before in 4.15.1. I tried removing the intermediate, build, binaries and saved folder and re-generate the project, same issue. I also migrated my maps and assets to a new clean project, same issue.

I think somehow some assets got corrupted for whatever reason and not specifically by the engine. I did make a copy of the project for a different feature test, which does build correctly (but missing my latest changes). So for now I will add my changes to that version and continue.

My lesson from this is of course to use version control...

I am happy to hear that you have a backup project to work with. It sounds like you were unable to reproduce this issue in a clean project. I will be marking your last comment as an answer. If you would like to investigate this further, please feel free to reopen this issue with a reply and I will happy to help.

Hi Rudy, Unfortunately the problem has returned. I Attached two screenshots, one of the VR preview and the other of the packaged project. The strange thing is that now some of the materials are completely messed up, but not all ( take a look at the floor, which is fine in both ). And I also saw that the sky is fine. alt text

Hope you can help me fix this.
