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"

As I said above: According to the output log now, these are the only errors: UATHelper: Cooking (Windows): LogInit: Display: LogLinker: Error: AddRedirectList(D:/Documents/Unreal Projects/Death Avenue - Revamped Edition/Saved/Config/Windows/Engine.ini) failed to add redirector from TP_FirstPersonBP to /Script/Death Avenue.TP_FirstPersonBP with invalid characters!

Just go to the file /Script/TP_FirstPersonBP to /Script/Death Avenue and paste the settings here

Where is the file located? There is no directory of /script/

avatar image Jurrasic Studios Apr 07 '18 at 10:04 AM

u might have set the folder wrong somewhere. try searching for script folder in the win explorer

avatar image Jurrasic Studios Apr 07 '18 at 10:06 AM

should be in here [ProjectDirectory]/Config/[Platform]/[Platform]Engine.ini

avatar image CrowZoneYT Apr 07 '18 at 10:09 AM

The only files in the config folder are the defaultgame.ini, the defaultengine.ini, defaultinput.ini, defaulteditor.ini, and DefaultEditorPerProjectUserSettings.ini. Am I missing entire folders?

avatar image CrowZoneYT Apr 07 '18 at 10:10 AM

Is it under [ProjectDirectory]/Saved/Config/Windows/Windows/Engine.ini?

avatar image Jurrasic Studios Apr 07 '18 at 10:13 AM

if u find that please post it here and also post defaultengine.ini

avatar image Jurrasic Studios Apr 07 '18 at 10:23 AM

if u do have found that config folder and the defaultengine.ini and engine.ini / not the saved one just find the redirector line and try removing the line to check if that helps

This worked, can you please make your comment an answer, so I can set it as resolved.

here's the files... engine.ini is from ...\Unreal Projects\Death Avenue - Revamped Edition\Saved\Config\Windows

defaultengine.ini is from ...\Unreal Projects\Death Avenue - Revamped Edition\Config

OK... think it's fixed... found the two redirect lines in the defaultengine.ini in the "[/Script/Engine.Engine]" section and removed them... build now successful :-)

According to the error the gamemode cannot be found: UATHelper: Packaging (Windows (32-bit)): LogInit: Display: CookResults: Warning: Unable to find package for cooking /Game/FirstPersonBP/Blueprints/FirstPersonGameMode UATHelper: Packaging (Windows (32-bit)): LogInit: Display: LogCook: Warning: Unable to find package for cooking /Game/FirstPersonBP/Blueprints/FirstPersonGameMode

You i think changed the name of the files Make Sure there is a directory : /FirstPersonBP/Blueprints/FirstPersonGameMode with the gamemode called FirstPersonGameMode
