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"

Strange problem after deleting material and meshes

Everything worked fine until I added some matrial and meshes and deleted them. When I press play I get: alt text

And in debug there is: alt text

It looks like it fails with the game instance but there is also that missing object. I have no idea how to fix this.

Took me a while but I found out what the problem was. I opened up my backup from yesterday and started replacing stuff and it worked. I noticed then that the backup had 2 files the new version didn't have. I have no idea why they were missing they weren't even shown in the content browser and I didn't delete them. They just vanished and when I add them to the defect project it works again. I assume they are redirections to old files that I renamed since they only are 2kb in size and have the old filenames I used. alt text

Edit: I have also found why they went missing UE deletes them when I press "fix up redirectors in folder" I checked the project settings and UE set the game instance to none after using the "fix up redirectors in folder". I put in the renamed game instance and now everything works fine even when using "fix up redirectors in folder". alt text
