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"

Compiling Shaders when starting UE4 Engine

For the past 6 months ( UE4 Version irrelevant ) UE4 begins compiling ~4100 shaders without me even opening a project. I have frequently found questions in the AnswerHub that had this issue with the projects shaders when it was opened. For me the moment the engine starts and I can select a project to pick it is already compiling. In addition, the process is abnormally slow than I am familiar with. Since this has begun UE4 has basically become useless for me please help!

Product Version: UE 4.18

This did not work, yet it sped up the time it takes to compile shaders for me.
