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"

It was broken by some changes since 4.18 . My quick fix for this is adding this line to DestructibleFractureSettings.cpp ( if you use C++ version of the Engine, the file should be inside UnrealEngine\Engine\Plugins\Runtime\ApexDestruction\Source\ApexDestruction\Private :

         FCStringAnsi::Strncpy(SubmeshData.mMaterialName, "InteriorMaterial", nvidia::apex::ExplicitSubmeshData::MaterialNameBufferSize);

to this block of code : ..

     // For now just copy the submesh data from the 0 submesh.
         apex::ExplicitSubmeshData SubmeshData;
         apex::ExplicitSubmeshData* SourceSubmeshData = HMesh.submeshData(0);
         if (SourceSubmeshData != NULL)
             SubmeshData = *SourceSubmeshData;

         FCStringAnsi::Strncpy(SubmeshData.mMaterialName, "InteriorMaterial", nvidia::apex::ExplicitSubmeshData::MaterialNameBufferSize);

         // BRG - this is being done until I add the ability to reset the submesh data without resetting the mesh data in the fracture tools
         if (HMesh.submeshCount() > (uint32)OriginalSubmeshCount)

If anyone need a solution, maybe can help this: I turned on v4.17 and it was works perfectly. Then i have set what i need on DM and migrated to v4.19. This is solution for me for now.

But there is still a bug on v4.19.

Had this same problem with 4.20, tried the 4.17 workaround and that works, but unfortunately this is still broken in 4.20 as well.
