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"

Initialize Freezes at 45%

Hello, I want to make a bug report to see if you can help me. Everytime I initialize the engine it freezes at 45%, and there's no way to make the progress continue.

I hope someone sees this and helps me, because I would really want to use this awesome engine.

Greetings, DannyPitee Games Inc.

Product Version: UE 4.16

Thats not a Bug. Your Engine Compiles all your Shaders for the first time and depending on the size of the Project and your CPU it can take a while. Let it Run once its done the next time you open your Project it will be much faster. (You can See your ShaderCompiler threads running inside your task Manager)
