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"

Is there a way that you can repro the project for me? That redness does not occur generally so without repro steps or a repro project it would be difficult for me to figure out what the issue is at hand.

Hello aka.prime,

This could be due to the warning messages shown on your screenshot. Have you tried building the lighting and texture stream? Here is a document walking through the steps on how to build texture streams:

Texture streaming pool over: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Content/Types/Textures/Streaming/Building/index.html

Build lighting: To build lighting only, click the drop down arrow next to "Build" at the top of the editor and click "Build Lighting Only."

This should help clear up the redness shown. Let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with.
