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"

Project won't load even after known working backup copied over.

My project will no longer load. It says it has the problem with the game module. I guess there are files outside the project folder that Unreal relates to? I copied all the files from the working backup over it. Does that not suppose to be enough?

Product Version: UE 4.18

First try this: don't copy the backup on top of the other one, give it a new directory and build from scratch. That usually works. You can even try your latest version (if it should be working as well) this way. Easiest way is to package a zip and then unzip it into a new directory.

If that doesn't work then try removing (completely) and reinstalling UE4.

What you don't want is for all those intermediate directories to be reusing generated stuff instead of rebuilding them. This is especially true for overwriting versions but can also happen between builds of the same version sometimes (no rhyme or reason). Just changing a line of code has caused my project to go kaput. Somehow it propagates into the blueprints and then all hope is lost.

In the meantime you could post the logs just in case there is a legit error.
